Bottom line if you don't want to read all this:
1. DO NOT GET CUSTOM FITTING
2. It is well made!
3. Color was EXACTLY right and very nice quality fabric.
4. Delivered a day early
5. Customer service is great and prompt (called to change shipping address and they were super sweet and helpful)
Don't get custom fitting if you've got any sort of curve . I learned later that the measurements they ask for are NOT adequate to get a proper fit. My mom is an amazing seamstress. I told her the measurements they asked for and she was shocked they would even try to do anything remotely fitted with just those measurements.
The waist line ended up too big and too short, the entire dress was too short and just took away any curve I've got.
The chest was too tight which caused it to ride up on the shoulders I think and had to readjust the dress every time I had put my arms up.
The shoulders were too tight and kept pulling up. The other bridesmaids had the same issue with that and one had to get an emergency back up dress because it didn't fit at all.
Sadly I had no time to get a different dress and had to wear the illfitted dress :( I just had to wear leggings so I wouldn't show off everything whenever the wind blew or I slightly bent over.
I was extremely disappointed:( my mom is going to help me alter it so I can wear it again.
I gave this dress 3 stars because yes I was extremely disappointed with the fit DO NOT GET CUSTOM FITTING!
The fabric itself is quite nice and the color is exactly as shown (I got the jade) it really is a beautiful dress. I think that the only problem with mine was that I am a bit of a different weird size, they didn't get proper measurements so they just decided the sort of shape I am which wasn't right which made it illfitted. I think of they asked for more in depth measurements like my mom suggests (having done custom fit wedding dresses for a living mind you. Long distance some of them) it would have come out better.
Despite the bad fit, for the measurements that they did take, it was well made. I hope they make improvements to their custom fitting in the future.
One of the other bridesmaids who didnt get custom fitting, looked amazing on her. So like I said, the custom order was the issue.
