I suggested that dress to a bee who’s celebrating her 15th wedding anniversary as she is interested in a sheath dress.  I love this dress!  Please try it on and show us!

I tried it on at BHLDN and it was NOT flattering on me.  Unfortunately I do not have any pics because it wasn’t worth taking photos of.  I am very busty w/ a small waste (apple shaped I’d say).  I think the dress would be best on “straight” body types like the model.  Hopefully others will have pics!  Good luck!

sparkle1819:  I tried it on and it was not flattering at all on my body type.  I didn’t even take a photo!  This dress is definitely for people with the models body type. Curves just throw the detail of the dress off, if that makes any sense.   For reference, I am hourglass shaped, 5’3, 125, 36B.  Hope that helps!  Do you live by a BHLDN? If you do, it is totally worth the appointment.  I went about 3 weeks ago and ended up the with the Penelope.  LOVE that place!

sparkle1819:  I chose the Roane gown as my wedding dress! I went to a BHLDN store to try on dresses and ended up liking quite a few different styles. I originally wanted a dress with a fitted bodice and flowy skirt, but once I put this dress on, I loved it! I’ll admit though, part of me still wishes I had a flowy skirt… but I really loved the uniqueness of this dress. It is also super comfortable and easy to move around, which was a necessity for me. The color is also great for me; I have pale skin and stark white dresses didn’t really flatter me. I have a pretty straight body type (bust 32A, waist 26, hips 37, height 5’9). This dress does run large. I’m normally a size 2 or 4 but had to order the 0 in this dress and it is still a little big in the chest area! Here are some pics:

anabbh84:  Hi! for some reason I can’t see those photos. I would really love to see how this dress fits you, as I love it, am a similar size to you (but shorter), and am a bit scared of online shopping! Thanks 🙂

larapie:  Hmm not sure what happened… I can’t see the pics either! I’ll upload one of them again and see if it works. Hopefully you can see it this time! If you’re at all interested in this dress, you should just order it! If you don’t like it once you try it on, you can always return it 🙂IMG_4685

anabbh84 :  Hi! How tight is the dress in the stomach/bum area? The dress is GORGEOUS and I’m considering it, but don’t want to have to worry about bloating and food babies at the reception 😉

citygal33 :  It depends! For my particular measurments and the dress size I ordered (see my first post in this thread) the waist and chest area were quite loose, and the hip/butt were maybe like a centimeter tighter than I would’ve liked (but not too bad). I had it altered in the waist/chest to fit me better. I generally like my clothes to fit a bit loose because I want to be comfortable, so I just had my seamstress take it in a little so that it doesn’t look too big but is still loose enough for me to feel comfortable and be able to breathe and eat during my wedding 🙂 Also, I have a little pooch in the stomach area (ugh) and the design/lace of the dress does a pretty good job of hiding it compared to some of the other dresses I tried on. Hope that helps!
