"Romance and grace team up to make a gown that's purely stunning..."
^^ This is how the BHLDN website describes the gorgeous Ephra gown, and they're spot on: it's stunning...
This gown was *going* to be my dream wedding dress. But alas, my crazy dream of magically losing 10 kilos before the wedding did not eventuate (funny that!) and the dress — though it made my heart hurt to admit it — did not fit...
Being in Australia, the cost of posting it back to the US for a refund was not an option. Which was bad news for me, but great news for someone else — maybe you? — because now, this stunning, romantic, never-worn, sold-out dress can be yours... and at a fraction of the original price.
The photos in this post are of other women wearing the dress… because unfortunately, as a size 14, I did not do it justice.
But if you’re a size 12, and you like elegant lace and the stunning lines of a figure-hugging trumpet, then *you* should be the one to wear this gorgeous gown down the aisle...
From the BHLDN website:
"Romance and grace team up to make a gown that's purely stunning. Off the shoulder sleeves and a delicately beaded illusion tulle neckline are the picture of elegance, while a soft trumpet silhouette crafted from graphic lace conjures classic Marchesa styling.”
To give you an 'in person' perspective... The delicate lace and beading on this dress are stunning.
The lining and lace overlay are pure ivory, while the decorative beading and embroidery are almost blush in person, highlighting the beautiful sculptural elements of the dress and your body's curves, and giving it a true vintage flavour.
It feels really elegant and sophisticated when it's on, and has SO many beautiful details that make it feel really special.
The dress was originally USD $1800 (approx $2,500 AUD).
I can send plenty more photos, if you wish. So please get in touch if you have a question. (The last two photos in the series are of the dress hanging in my bedroom, and of the tag - still in place.)
- US Size 8 (AU Size 12) (According to the BHLDN website, this dress tends to run small)
- Back zip, button
- Nylon, modal, rayon, cotton lace; poly-spandex lining
- Never worn
- Brand new with tags
- Comes with original dress cover, hanger and box,
- Can be shortened; using an experienced bridal tailor is recommended
BHLDN recommend pairing this gown with a veil in ivory. (I’ve got the matching one, if you want it! A BHLDN cathedral veil — again, never worn. Selling for $200 on its own, or $90 with this dress.)
Finally, some reviews from the BHLDN website:
"I LOVED this gown. I was nervous about ordering online but I fell in love with the pictures, it is Marchesa and it was on sale. I am 5'4" about 135 lb. I ordered a 6 based on the past reviews about it being a little smaller than other dresses. Unfortunately, the 6 was big on me! I do have small hips and more of a straight torso. I just ordered a 4. So hopefully, that will fit bc I am really in love with this dress! It is well made and absolutely beautiful in person!"
(The above bride listed her height as 5'4", with a "Straight and Narrow" body type.)
"Elegant, timeless, beautiful...
I received so many compliments in my wedding day. To Absolutely happy with my choice. I am usually wear size 4 but this dress I bought in size 6 and it was fit perfectly after little alterations."
(This second bride listed her height as 5'6", with a "Curvy all over" body type.)
I tried on a lot of different dresses at my local BHLDN store and I have to say this was the last one I expected to fall in love with—but it ended up being the one! It feels really elegant and sophisticated when it's on, and has SO many beautiful details that make it feel really special.
The color is a bit lighter than it appears in the photos and the blush embroidery running down the bodice and just above the flare out part stands out more in person than it does in the photos. I think it does tend to run small. I had to size up to a 6 (was a 2 or 4 in other dresses) but once I did, it was very comfortable! In comparison to a lot of the other dresses I tried, I would say this one is definitely on the higher end in terms of quality.
I'm quite hippy and was about to dismiss this silhouette altogether, but I'm so glad I tried it and would definitely recommend to curvier girls!"
(^^ This final bride lists her height as 5'3" and her body type as "Smaller on top".)
