Has anyone ever ordered from Black Milk Clothing before? I’m in love with a sweater dress and wanted to order it before the honeymoon but I was curious about sizing. I also wasn’t sure the price was worth it. I never spend this much on clothing but I was worried because based on the size chart I’d be an XL for being a 12 in the US, but going by measurements from Inches to CM I’d be a large. Just wondering if anyone else has ordered from them before.

I love that dress. I can’t tell you anything about the brand except that their store in LA closed down in less than a year.

I’ve bought a bunch of leggings & love their stuff! Their sizing is on point.

Yes, I have a lot of BMC! I was a bit of an addict and own at least 50 pieces… :O
However, a range of factors have stopped me from purchasing in nearly 2 years.
What I can tell you is that the products in general are high quality. The toastie fabric (that this dress is made of) is nice and warm but does not have a good a finish as their other products, and the fabric is susceptible to ‘grinning’ which means the print can appear faded if stretched.
Instagram and the Bridesmaid or Best Man community (sharkies!) will be your best friend here. For sizing check#bmlarge or#bmxlarge to get an idea. I find it runs true to size, and the fabric is incredibly stretchy, I wear an XS in almost all pieces, sometimes size up to S in legs.
They used to link all product hashtags on the website, but now they select the ones they want to use, so search for the product hashtag on Insta: #bmgalaxyrainbowsweaterdress etc., for a better idea.
There is also a fan group for larger or curvy sharkies called Bridesmaid or Best Man Lucious Ladies on Facebook, and they actively post using #bmll or #bmluciousladies on Insta.
Most will be all too happy to answer questions about sizing and fit for you!
Beware that you may be liable for taxes/customs on arrival. However, if you are in the US, I think the limit is quite high (maybe 200 USD?), so it might be worth buying more than one piece to avail of free shipping. Check FB for a local sharkie group who will give you their tips.
I actually got engaged wearing Bridesmaid or Best Man leggings 😀

cinderdora : thanks for all the info! I noticed they linked some Instagram posts under the product but I didn’t know they pick and choose so I’ll look more on Instagram. I like their slouchys too but just love the print of this dress. I believe shipping is free on their site over $100 to ship to the US but I’ll look more into it. I’ve read that their leggings are great but I don’t wear many leggings. Thanks again!

katmaekat : No problem, definitely ask around before you order!
I’m not 100% sure on shipping cost, it is actually one of the reasons I have stopped ordering with them, they used to offer free shipping and free returns worldwide.
I do know that it is more than the average cost of a single piece, but ordering two pieces to Europe generally results in customs charges on top, so not worth it 🙁 🙁
Good luck with your order!
