I am very very unhappy with this dress. Here is a summary of my experience. First of all I live in the UK and am attending a wedding in Canada. The bride said I could chose any knee length dress in the colour Wisteria. Because I cannot try on the dress, I looked for one with a shape I like from other dresses I own. Because I live in the UK I cannot try on samples. Luckily my mum lives in Canada, otherwise I would not be able to ship it to the UK. It was $40 USD to ship to Canada which is insane, then she had to pay to ship it to me. I ordered this dress custom fit to avoid having to alter it. However, the downside to this is you cannot exchange it. So weeks later the dress arrives at my mums and she sends it to me. I try it on. Awful fit. It was way too big, even though I was very careful with my measurements and measured myself twice before ordering. So now I have to take it to a seamstress to adjust it. I have taken it to get taken in, it was £25 ($31 USD) but it still didn't fit right. The breast pads were huge and it was so unflattering and not the shape of anyones breasts that I know of. So I asked the seamstress to remove the breast pads, then we had to remove the bones, then take in the chest but the top part was caving in so we put in smaller breast pads. I went to the alterations place 5 times in total I have paid £51 to get it altered ($65 USD). And It is STILL not flattering and the breasts are a weird fit. I hate the fit and I am stuck with this dress.
So in total I have spent probably $250 USD on a dress I am really uncomfortable in, that does not fit me nice, and, will obviously be photographed. I am sure this is not just an issue with this dress but with the system of ordering a dress from this site and getting it to fit properly. I am incredible unhappy and would not recommend the custom fit dresses.
