Ribboned Silk Gown
If you are petite, buy this dress!
I am 5'3" with an hour glass figure. I have been looking for something romantic and unique that shows off my curves without overwhelming my body. This dress is perfect!
I had seen this dress several times, but I hate ruffles. So I passed it up. When I saw the sale price, I figured I'd order it and try it on. My measurements are 32"/25"/35". I ordered the 2 and 0. The 0 fit perfectly. The ruffles are actually very nice. There are 3 on the left sleeve and one on the right. I am going to have it altered so it's just one on each side. The snaps are a little week, so I will also need them spruced up. No alterations will be needed for the fit of the dress though. I am wearing 3" heels and it just skims the floor.
Too many dresses only offer drama using full skirts and beading. I don't like those things, but I still wanted an interesting dress. The drama is in the design. It is also extremely comfortable and light - great choice for a summer wedding.
The color in the BHLDN pictures is a little confusing. It's not as dark as in the pics with the model that has the feather in her hair, yet not as light as the other model. The color is an antique ivory and really compliments an olive skin tone.

I had been eyeing this dress for months and jumped when it went on sale. I originally ordered the 6, which fit me everywhere except the bust portion (I'm a 32D). So I returned it and ordered the 10 which I was afraid would need to be taken in a lot. It was barely bigger anywhere but gave just the extra room I needed in the bust.
It is well made and looks even better on. I read a lot of reviews before purchasing that said it looks better on women with some curves and I couldn't agree more. I've seen so many photos of actual women not models wearing it and myself wearing it and it looks even better than in these photos.
I can't wait to wear it for my fall wedding!

Absolutely stunning dress!
I ordered this dress online on a whim when I saw it was on sale. The unique design of it appealed to me and I thought it would look beautiful for my beach wedding this coming August. I ordered the 2 and the 6 since they were out of my size, size 4. The only place the 2 didn't fit was in the ribcage area, but the 6 was absolutely perfect. I think a 4 would have been too small in the ribcage as well. This dress hugs all the right curves and really makes your body look amazing, which adds an air of sexiness. I can't wait to see my fiance's face when he sees me in this dress on our wedding day!
