 Cascading Goddess Gown
Cascading Goddess Gown
At once structured and freeform, seemingly infinite layers of asymmetrical wisps spill below a structured bodice. Over 15 meters of fluid silk chiffon clothe its tulle petticoat, giving this Catherine Deane gown a soft, voluminous feel. A Catherine Deane original. Hidden back zip. Professionally clean. Imported. This silhouette is fitted through the bodice. For best fit, size to the curvier of your bust and waist measurements. Can be shortened; using an experienced bridal tailor is recommended Boning and underwire bust cups Silk shell Silk and tulle petticoat All gowns require an additional shipping charge of $15 See fit guide for detailed sizing information We recommend pairing this gown with a veil in Ivory If your size is not available, please contact our stylists to place an order.-->

After discovering that the dress that I had was too short, I was on a mad dash to find a dress for our May 5 wedding. I was particularly concerned about the length of the dress, as I'm 6'2". I called BHLDN to ask about the length and they told me that the model wearing the dress is 5'10" and has 3" heels on. That made me feel more confident that this could be the dress.
I received the dress and as the other ladies say, it is a little more yellow than it seems in the pictures but it's beautiful. There is also the slight sheen to it which also adds a nice touch. I usually wear an 8 or 10, so I ordered an 8 and the length is great but the bodice is definitely going to need to be taken in. The dress is beautiful on its own, but a sash really completes the look.
Overall, I'm super happy with the dress and relieved to have found it just in time!
