This gorgeous, unaltered true size 8 BHLDN Banderole dress was bought by me on Gilt.com for $1000. Later, I chose a different BHLDN gown for my wedding day. I was married on April 12 in New Orleans, and this dress would be beautiful for the bride looking for a sophisticated gown with a vintage twist.

This is a true US Size 8. My measurements are 34b, 27 waist, 36 hips. I’m a bit pear-shaped and normally wear an 8 in bottoms and a 6 in tops. This dress fits perfectly through the waist and hips and is a bit big for me in the bust so if you are a true size 8 it will be perfect!
I absolutely adore the deep v-neck in front and the matching v-neck in back. The length of the dress is average for a wedding dress, it will hang a few inches over your heels, but not so far that it would be difficult to walk in. It is a bit longer in back but doesn’t have a big train.
This gown in UNALTERED. My plan for this gown was to have the sleeves removed – that would make it a bit less modest, and would give it a “younger” feel. Or, keep it exactly as it is. You’ll love this dress either way.
