This dress is truly beautiful but...like others have stated the nude coloring is much darker than it appears in the picture. The fit was nice for my body type, 5'4" 140, but I am blonde and fair, so it completely washed me out. I think it is perfect for a darker skin tone. The dress itself fit very nicely. I ended up going with a different one just because of the way it washed me out.

The perfect dress
I loved wearing this dress at our wedding, it was very light and comfortable. The fabric is very soft and flows as you walk. I decided to pair it with a caplet to give it a vintange vibe.
I found the dress to run a little large, I usually wear a size 4 but ended up buying a size 2.

Beautiful and romantic
I originally purchased this dress as a size 8 and wound up downsizing to a 4 with some minor tailoring to trim the length and pull in the top. Granted I lost a little weight for the wedding, but the dress seems to run a little big. The overall look and feel of the dress absolutely worked for my outdoor, fairy princess style wedding day. I received so many compliments on the dress and it was comfortable enough to wear and dance throughout the night. Very happy with my purchase.

This was the very first BHLDN dress that I fell in love with when looking online, and the one I was most excited to try on in the store!
I'm 135lbs, size 36C and honestly this dress just didn't do very much for me. Now don't get me wrong, the dress itself is the epitome of delicate, soft beauty, and made me feel so feminine. The tulle is the softest I have ever felt, the illusion neckline (which I expected to be itchy) is soft and barely noticeable, and the detailing is way more beautiful in person. However, as a lady with an hourglass figure, the shape of this dress just didn't give me the 'wow' factor that I was looking for. Like the other reviews say, the lining is much darker in person and does create a really nude look.
Overall, this dress is beautiful, and perfect for an ethereal, romantic bridal style.
