This bridal gown is absolutely beautiful! I very nervously ordered a custom fit gown and it would have fit like a glove had I not mis-measured by an inch. I am very petite and this gown was incredibly flattering on me!! I am so, so excited to wear it in my wedding in May. The dress came neatly steamed and clean of all debris except a couple of black strings. Although I tried on the try on dress, it was hard to imagine without the pannier. With the pannier, it was absolutely breathtaking. The quality is crazy for how inexpensive it was. The beading is extremely delicate and elaborate. All the layers of fabric create a lovely A-line silhouette, and there is even a small train at the back. The pannier is more like a crinoline though, so be prepared to spend quite a bit of time adjusting it to a narrower silhouette. The only thing that was bothersome to me was that the pannier is visible underneath the length of the dress, but should be able to be fixed by some adjusting. One thing to note is, THIS DRESS CANNOT BE WORN WITHOUT THE PANNIER unless you take like... 3 inches off the bottom. Hopefully I can update my review with some photos soon and that this helps you in your search!
EDIT: After altering the pannier and removing the bottom hoop, this dress fit perfectly! I was able to walk, run, dance, and sit easily and freely. The dress moved BEAUTIFULLY, making me look like I was gliding around. I paired it with a chapel length veil with gold lace trim and it was incredibly elegant, perfect for our small chapel wedding. I HIGHLY recommend this dress!
