I ordered this dress for my sister's wedding, while living overseas. I only got home about 10 days before the wedding and debated long and hard about whether to order as-is, or to go for custom measurements, being that there wasn't much time to get alterations. My measurements were pretty close to what Azazie listed on the page, so I decided to just go with the as-is sizing. Because of the style of the dress, and the wider straps with a high back, I didn't have to alter a thing. It was maybe a tiny bit big in the bust, but I only would have taken it in maybe a 1/2 inch, and it wasn't gapping so I left it. In another style I probably would have had to alter the length of the straps to keep them in place, but not with this dress. I've already worn it for some other functions. Thanks for a comfortable dress I can wear again!
