I am completely dissatisfied with this purchase. In fact, I had to order rush to find another dress when this one arrived last week. The big event is this weekend and this dress is not going in the suitcase. Biggest disappointment I've had. I wish I had listened to other reviewers who said the lace is cheap looking. There is also a clear plastic-ish trim that lines the armholes that shines and shows like crazy. This dress is easily five inches too large for me through the waist and torso despite giving custom measurements. I measured just as directed and the off-the-rack dress from Banana Republic that I ordered as a replacement after giving their customer service agent my same measurements fits perfectly. Besides being so big that a seamstress I have used for years said she did not know of a way to fix it, there was a torn seam at the belt/middle trim and a piece of frayed fabric at the waist. In addition, the dress looks very washed out in color. The boning in the top is too stiff and goes way to low to allow any natural fit to occur. The overwhelming amount of fabric to the skirt, combined with the super high waistline cut made for an unfixable situation. Between the boning, cheap lace, cheap chiffon, clear plastic trim and the incredibly misfit gigantic size, I felt like I was putting on some kind of cheap halloween costume for a school play or something. Definitely not something I would wear in public, especially for an occasion as special as being in someone's wedding. I was so excited about this possibility but it is an incredible disappointment. I immediately put the dress back in the box and I am sending it back just so that I don't have to see it in my closet and realize how much money I wasted... Not to mention getting my hopes up about something that would be dressy, upscale, and unique.
