I was sad to see that this dress does not come as a sample, so I ordered 4 other sample dresses in a size 4, 6, or 8, in order to get a feel for that this dress would be like. I discovered that the waist of a size 8 and the bust of a size 6 was what I needed, and would not be able to order an exact size. I am 5'9, 135lbs, and have a size B cup with a 34in bust. I was a little nervous ordering a custom size, because I couldn't try it on or return it, but the dress actually fits really well! It's made well and the material is very nice.
I will have to bring it in to be hemmed, it is about an inch or two too long, but Azazie does pay up to $50 in alterations for this dress. I also can't decide if the shoulder straps are just a bit too long, I may or may not have those shortened 1/4 an inch or so.
Overall, I am very happy with the dress and the company. Sample dresses arrived within 10 days of ordering them, returning them was very simple, and my custom dress arrived within 3 weeks of being ordered. In total, with my dress, the sample dresses, and tax, I paid just under $185. Not bad for a dress that I have to buy.
