Like butter!
These shoes are GORGEOUS! I am not a heel wearer and have trouble finding lady like shoes to fit my not so lady like size 10's. These babies fit like a glove and are extremely comfortable, I think it's the hidden platform. I have high hopes that I will get hours of wear on my wedding day out of these things. Plus, my fiancée said with a huge smile on his face "I can't wait to see you in these shoes on our wedding day." no doubt, these are THE shoes :)

Beautiful lace detail.
This dress has the perfect vintage feel. The lace is so lovely and delicate. The ivory is a bit more beige than in this picture, but is absolutely beautiful in person.
Like the previous review stated, this dress does run quite a bit large. I am usually a size 8, pear shaped, and a 34C bust. The size 4 ended up being the best fit for me. There is plenty of room on the bottom half for you to go with a size that fits your bust area.
Though I chose another BHLDN gown for my wedding day, this was such a close second for me. It is truly a beautiful dress and I fully suggest this dress to others wanting a that old fashioned charm :)

Not as nice as the photo.
This looks like such a lovely dress in the photo, but to my disappointment when I received it, the dress failed to impress. The color was a bit more of a yellowed ivory and looked like old fabric you'd find on an aged, worn piece of clothing from a thrift store. As for the size, this dress runs extremely small. Though it leaves so much extra room in the bust, the waist and hip area are beyond tight. I am usually a size 8 and the size 10 wouldn't even go past my waist. Also, the arm holes were quite tight and were not comfortable to move around in.
This dress would fit best on slim/slender body types or someone with a larger chest and smaller hips. It is a decent dress, just not for my shape.

Professionally clean. Imported. This silhouette is fitted through the bodice. For best fit, size to the curvier of your bust and waist measurements.

Just what I was looking for!
I couldn't be more happy with this dress. It is beautiful. The top is fitted just perfectly while the bottom fills out just enough to give you just the right volume. I am a 34C bust with full hips. This dress compliments my pear shape exactly the way I would hope it would. I found the fit to be pretty true to size, but would definitely recommend ordering to whatever your bust size suggests. Theres plenty of room on the bottom half so you dont need to worry about your hip size. As for the length, it is pretty long. Heels are a must if you dont want to trip. Also, the fabric quality is suburb. Absolutely worth every penny!
This fulfilled my desire to find a dress that screamed "bridal" but still had a unique quality that truly made it my own style. It was the only dress that made me smile when I put it on. When I opened up the bag I knew immediately that it was THE ONE. Thank you BHLDN for making my experience as a bride exactly what I have always dreamed of :)

Beautiful and Simple!
This is the perfect combination of beauty and simplicity. Many of the pieces I usually wear are longer chain necklaces I purchase at thrift/antique stores and this fits right into my everyday look...with just an extra something special. It's exactly what I was looking for. I can't wait to pair this with my wedding gown in a few months!!!
