I have an unusual body type, so I did run into some difficulty even with the custom sizing. I'm thin, of average height, and rather flat chested. In retrospect, I should have looked into junior bridesmaid dresses, though as maid of honor, I wanted a dress with pockets.
While I marked that the overall fit was slightly large, it was actually large in the shoulders but tight around my diaphram making breathing difficult while seated. I seemed to have trouble finding the spot where the dress was supposed to sit. The straps on my shoulder refused to stay up, and being that I did not intend to wear a bra, that was quite a problem. The bust was definitely too large for my tiny chest, but as I noted before, sitting was uncomfortable. Quite the predicament!
Knowing my unique size might be an issue, I had my mom measure me twice and even suggested she loosen the waist measurement by a 1/2 inch as the tightness when sitting had been a problem with dresses in the past. We did so, but it wasn't enough. I'm having the dress altered and hoping that the sizing will be better. I appreciate Azazie paying $50 towards the cost of the alterations, though they are costing a bit more than that.
In the future, I would prefer to go to a bridal shop to find a dress and have it sized on the spot with free alterations.
