BHLDN Tiered Tulip Gown Size 6

Label Size: 6 Street Size: 6

I wore this gown for my wedding on May 18, 2013 and it was absolutely gorgeous.

It is a size 6. According to the BHLDN website, a size 6 is: 36 bust; 28 natural waist; 36 hips.

I got the top altered by an expert seamstress in Manhattan. I alternate between a 32C/34B on top and wore an unpadded strapless bra with the dress. It was snug on top so I did not have to worry about it falling down and never once had to tug it up the whole night. It fit like a glove.

The length was not adjusted. I am just under 5’4″ tall and wore 2 1/4″ heels with the dress. The bottom of the dress in the very back grazed the floor.

The dress comes with a large black sash, which I decided not to wear (but I still have it and will include it with the dress). NOTE: If you would like the dress without the large black sash, I will discount the price by $100.

Instead, I purchased a Vera Wang sash from David’s Bridal in Ivory (you can see the sash here: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Floral-Sash-VW370014_Accessories-Features-White-by-Vera-Wang). In order to tie in the black stitching of the dress, the seamstress added an inch of black trim to the sash. I felt like the black trim helped to define my waist. I will also include this sash in the order at no additional cost.

BHLDN shipped the dress to me in a large box. The dress was folded, so this is how I plan to ship it. The dress has been cleaned by a place that is certified by the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists. After being shipped to you, it will probably need to be steamed again.

CONDITION: The dress looks almost like new. There is a piece of tulle (underneath the organza) that is slightly ripped, but it doesn’t affect the look of the dress. There are also two small places on the tulle that have a little dirt on them (which did not come out in the drycleaning). Because the tulle is underneath, you can’t see it. The longest layer of the organza in the back at the very bottom looks a little worn. It’s only noticeable if you’re really looking at it closely.

This is the description on the BHLDN website:

“We’re smitten with this flower-fresh silhouette. Its five floaty layers of organza playfully open at the hem to reveal a tulle flounce. Each tier is trimmed in black pearl-edge stitches for a bit of contrast, while a silk sash lends soft volume to the front or back waist. Fluttering ruffles at the sweetheart neckline accentuate the bust, and an interior corset and bra cups provide extra support. Falls to the floor, with just enough space for your shoes to peek out. Hidden side zip. Silk; silk lining with a nylon tulle petticoat. Professionally clean. Imported.

From the makers of Va Et Vien, designed exclusively for BHLDN
Falls 43.5″ from natural waist”
