The dress came much faster than anticipated and very well stitched. I have always had great customer service with Azazie, I'm just not totally thrilled with the dress. The bust is too heavily structured and the waist does not come down as far as is pictured on the mannequin.
I was nervous ordering a dress online and thought the lace up backing would give me a bit more wiggle room, but the bust is so structured that it makes it impossible to tighten down much. The structuring also gives it a bit of a "Madonna-esk cone-boob" look. It's not terribly noticeable, according to my bf, but still makes me a bit uncomfortable. I will have to find a heavily padded bra to get it to fill out a bit.
My other issue with the dress is the cut of the bodice. It seems to want to sit a lot higher up on my torso than pictured, but you can force it down a bit. I feel like the waist of the bodice should come down a little farther; where it is runs the risk of looking a bit like a maternity dress. But it's not my wedding and the bride likes the look of it, so who am I to complain?!
It is well put together, so any alterations would be difficult. The color is very nice though, and I love the pockets! Hopefully this helps with any questions people might have!
Also, something to think about: the lacing is basically impossible to get on without a friend (this is probably obvious, but being one who doesn't wear a lot of dresses I didn't think about that :-p )
