I think the Azazie bridesmaids dresses are in general poor quality. This one is no exception. The underneath layer is not perfectly smooth - the fabric has slight vertical/diagonal folds in it, because of poor tailoring I guess, and they show through underneath the chiffon top layer. The stitching on the ties is not quite even, and in one place, the fabric of the ties unfolds and you can see the unhemmed edge. The bodice looks a little lumpy because the cups are not shaped well, not smooth and not round. The bodice cups are a little pointy too, and they're not very stiff, so they don't hold their shape well. The tailoring overall is poor, the stitching is a little sloppy. The dress is made in China, so that's probably why.
I ordered 2 other Azazie dresses to try on as well, and the other 2 were much worse -- this dress is at least flattering in its shape and doesn't make you look fat, unlike most of the Azazie dresses with their overly full skirts with too much fabric, and bodices that make you look really wide and matronly on top. So that's a plus of this dress - that the shape is flattering - and that's why I gave it 3/5 stars.
I have no choice but to pick an Azazie dress, since that's what the bride wants, and this is the one I will pick, since it's the only one that doesn't literally make me look fat (and I am not fat). But if I were a bride, I would just pick a chiffon dress from H&M or a similar store to be the bridesmaids' dress, instead of an Azazie dress.
