I liked the dress, and it was very sturdily made. My problem and stress came in the delivery. My original dress was lost en route to me (the sample fabrics were also lost en route to the bride...), so I had to get a new one sent. Azazie was really helpful and proactive in making that happen, but I couldn't get a custom size because of the time window. I got a size 8 (a size up from my usual dress size), and it fit fine through my hips to my waist. It wouldn't zip up around my ribs, and was inches too small around my chest. Another girl in our bridal part had the same problem with another style dress. I was able to get it taken out a couple inches (most dresses built like this don't have extra fabric in side seams, but these do! Ended up being so helpful.), but then the bust was far too large and had to be reshaped. (I have no idea whose body would fit in a standard size from here--big hips, but tiny ribcage and chest.) When I went to the tailor, we discovered the dress was almost an inch longer in the front than the back, so that was weird, but I'm sure it's not something that happens across the board.
Over all, it was hugely stressful getting the dress to me and tailored, but all the bridesmaids looked lovely on the wedding day, and I think I'll definitely wear the dress again.
