I tried this on as a sample dress along with the Veronica & Natasha. I ordered my samples in early February, received them about a week and a half later & had a week to try them on.
Originally ordering multiple samples at the same time was tough availability wise. One item would be available in my size but the other 2 not, then another item becomes available but the first one is gone ect. Had to order 2 in one order then the last one in a separate order. Because of this they arrived at different times so it would have been hard to try them on together to compare styles. Azazie was great in giving me a few days extension on my first order.
Size 10 is true to size, no areas felt too large or tight. If between sizes go by the waist 1st & bust 2nd. Hip measurements don't matter much with the flowing skirt material. I would've been a 6 by bust, 8 by waist & like a 14 by hip guidelines. A10 fit well enough for sample purposes but I will do custom when it is time to order. (it's free and they reimburse up to $50 for alterations so why not!)
This dress was my favorite of the 3 mentioned above & I will be doing a custom order with the wedding party soon (will update or add another review in August after the wedding!)
Pros: neckline isn't as high as appears (I can't stand chokers or too high of necklines). This is one of the only few dresses Azazie makes that doesn't have crazy amounts of pleated material- this has a very smooth, lightweight and sleek feel vs bulky with the thicker pleated folds in all the other dresses. The thin waist band is very slimming and actually hits at the natural waist (the others with thick waist bands are too high and make the torso look shorter than it is and allows for lower belly pooching). I have a small bust (barely an A) but this made me look like a solid B/C!
Cons: No pockets but the dresses that do have pockets tend to make the hips look wider than they are due to the excess material to make them. The straps on the back are sort of stretchy elastic and due to being tried on a lot as a sample were stretched out and didn't lie flat. Could easily be pinched, folded and sewn in alterations.
