I ordered this dress for my sister's wedding, looking for something elegant, flattering, and modest. I would say that this dress fits in to all of these categories! The craftsmanship is very good and the dress is obviously made with care. While I'm satisfied with the dress itself, the custom size is a little off. It can work, but it's not great. I am hoping to get it altered to make it fit better- the waist, bust, and straps are too big. I was concerned about how low cut some of these dresses were, and I would say this one is acceptable. I think with the alterations, it will fit better, and therefore be more modest. I'm bigger chested and really skinny everywhere else, and because the sizing is a bit too big, it adds unnecessary bulk up top. The padding is very thick in the bodice, and there is some boning that keeps it from fitting very tightly. Had I known this about the style of the dress, I might have chosen something that wouldn't make my bust look bigger, but would be more fitted. Overall, happy with the purchase.
