Alterations:

The dress was extremely long when purchased. I had it taken up a few inches. I am relatively tall and have a short torso and long legs, so the length is still quite long. Since I appreciate simplicity and my "something borrowed" was a large jeweled brooch from my grandmother, I had the seamstress remove the multi-colored flowers on the sash so I could wear the brooch. Also, I thought that the flowers really distracted from the beauty of the dress. It really looks much better without, depending on your taste. Those were the only two alterations. The dress fit like a glove everywhere else, so it was never taken in or let out - original measurements.



Description and details

I am selling my dress because my original budget for a dress was $1,200. This dress was significantly more expensive and I am a frugal 20-something that can't bear to live seeing it gathering dust in my closet.

Bridal Boutique: If any of you girls are familiar with the store Anthropologie, they started a Bridal line called BHLDN last summer. All of the dresses are very chic. I was not your typical bride. In fact, when I first walked into a run-of-the-mill Bridal Salon, everything I saw was a disaster... rhinestone and lace chaos. BHLDN was different. If you really appreciate clothes, you would appreciate this bridal boutique.

Sizing: I am 5'8" and weigh 155lbs with a moderately athletic build, curvy. I am typically a size 8-10. The dress is a size 12, but fit me like a glove. I was told that wedding dresses run 1-2 sizes small, this is normal?

The dress is still listed on their website at full price of $2,500. This is the description provided:
What seems like a thousand tonal tiers of crinkled silk chiffon cascade down three quarters of this corseted BHLDN original. Providing the colorful transition between its lightly boned bodice and back-slit column skirt, a cluster of more petals arranges itself on a removable belt. A limited edition BHLDN original. Back zip. Professionally clean. USA.

The dress has a very sexy slit in the back. The boning on the bodice is extremely flattering. The dress flatters curves very well.
