I wanted to post a picture of my wedding dress here because I have scoured the internet and couldn’t find anyone who was near plus size wearing a BHLDN dress. I went to their store in Walnut Creek, CA and had a terrible experience because they don’t carry anything bigger than a size 12, so I didn’t even get to see myself in one that fit.
I had been on the hunt for a while for a good deal on a wedding dress, then saw this one online at BHLDN for $600 (it had been $1,800!). So I took a chance and bought it, and I love how it fits! This is for all of the brides who have wanted to see what a BHLDN dress looks like on someone who is a size 16/18 (sadly they don’t go higher than this).
About the fit: I ordered a size 18 and it fits perfectly. I would consider myself between a 16/18, and also very curvy. I was only wearing some Spanx and a strapless bra with this, so no altering has been done. You can see some of the bra on the back, so I will need to get a lower one for when I walk down the aisle. It was easy to move in, and the dress is absolutely stunning. Can’t wait to walk down the aisle in it!

That looks fantastic on you. It really emphasizes your hour glass figure and the back is stunning!

Wooo! Dress twin! I’ve never seen anyone else wearing this dress, it looks lovely on you! I’m not planning on wearing a bra as the cups feel like enough support for me. Are you going to wear a veil??

It is so gorgeous on you! I just love the lace!

Yay, dress twins! I think I will be wearing a bra, but my chest is pretty big so I don’t think I would feel comfortable without some support. It does have really nice cups though, so I might go without if I could have something sewn in.
I’m planning on doing a halo with it. I found a beautiful veil at a local bridal store, but I still think I like the look of the halo better. What about you?
And thanks everyone for your gracious comments! I hope that this helps someone who is considering BHLDN for their dress 🙂

I’m planning on a halo as well. Although, my aunt just let me know I could borrow hers which I’ve now been considering. But I agree I think I like not covering the beautiful back details! Mine also fit like a glove. They really know their sizes!
