Rated 5 out of 5Â by haleychristine Lovely dress
This little dress is so, so lovely. The shell underneath is silk, and the lace on the actual dress is thicker, nice and soft. The dress has a good weight to it, so it falls beautifully. Its a slightly more casual dress while still looking quite special (and it really does *feel* like a wedding dress, to me). I'm having a small ceremony at the registry office and a garden reception, so with a little sparkly belt, cute heeled sandals, and a pearl pendant, this dress will be perfect. For the record, I'm just under 5'2" and the dress falls maybe an inch above the top of my kneecap (so I'll definitely be wearing heels). My measurements are 32", 26", 32", its slightly large in the bust (barely noticeable) and the lace overlay of the size 0 has about two inches of give in the waist (the slip fits fine)...normally, I'd get this taken in, but lace alterations tend to be pricey, so I think I can fake the fit by cinching it with a belt. Overall, I'm very happy with this dress--it's perfect for a more relaxed summer wedding, and I can't wait to wear it :)

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Kylie Cute but not the most flattering fit
I bought this dress for my rehearsal dinner. It's very pretty but the fit was just a little off. It wasn't even the lace, but the slip underneath that seemed tight. I also felt like even though the slip was tight, the cut of the dress made my hips look huge. Sadly, I will have to send this back. I do not think it is the most flattering on my body type. Overall, not a dress for curvy girls.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by EmLA Loved this dress
The only reason I cannot give this dress five stars is because it was too big. The quality of the lace, the color, the slip.. All of it was gorgeous. However, they did not have the smaller size that I needed and ultimately alterations would not have been right with this dress.
I am 5' 6", thin build, approx. 120 lbs and I can usually wear a 2 or 4 in dresses. However, BHLDN was sold out of the size two so I ordered the size four, hoping it would work.
Unfortunately I had to send this dress back. I kept trying it on wanting it to work but it would have required pretty extensive alterations. The chest area fit however, the straps and waist were very loose. The slip under the dress is good quality but the dress is slightly sheer. Skin-tone undergarments must be worn with this dress to avoid them peeking through the lace. Hoping my return can find a happy home! Loved the dress

I bought this one when it went on sale for my wedding rehearsal. It is very beautiful. It is hard to get it on since the slip dress is pinned inside it, but it is not a big deal. The details are gorgeous. The color is right on. It
fit me conservatively (not to tight or too short). I tried it on after I got my hair mock run, and I looked like a bride. I am not sure if I'd pay for the full price, but if I were to use it as a wedding dress, then it is very affordable for a simple garden/beach wedding. Overall, I am very happy with it. I got size 0 and I am 5'2, 108b.
