This Floor-Length, A-line/Princess dress by azazie is constructed in a fabulous Chiffon, Lace. Azazie Sheena MBD features a Back Zip, Scoop back style and a V-Neck neckline. Azazie Sheena MBD by azazie comes in sizes A0-A30. A pleated detail at the front and back of the flowing skirt makes it perfect for the reception or a city hall wedding.
My girls and I began sampling various Azazie dress sizes and styles 4 months prior to my daughter's wedding. This helped narrow down the correct sizes and styles dresses that flattered our personal body types. I ended up keeping the Sheena MBD in Cabernet and it is STUNNING. I am 5'9, 170 lbs, rib-cage 37" (just under my bust) , waist 37", lower hip 45", bra size 36C. The size 14 in this style fit perfectly. The only alternation for me will be about 1/2" or so tuck at each shoulder front to eliminate the gapping on either side of my chest. Someone with a fuller cup size would probably not even have that issue. It's a small alternation I'm going to do myself.
The bodice and sleeves are covered in a lovely lace perfectly matching the soft chiffon skirt of the dress. The only negative sewing flaw is that the zipper seam is sewn too close in one area on the middle of my back where the bodice is attached making it impossible for me to zip up by myself...I need someone else to zip it from another angle...and it does take some tugging. In hindsight ( and my only regret) it that I should have mailed it back and had an Azazie seamstresses adjust it for me...but as of today we are 4 weeks from the wedding so I'll just be careful zipping it.
The length is still very generous for me at 5'9 even with 4" heels....but I would rather hem a dress than have it too short. All the bridesmaids ordered different dresses from Azazie (same color) and each one looks beautiful. I will take and post pictures after the wedding.
I was hesitant about ordering this kind of a dress online, but due to COVID closures there weren't many options. My girls and I sampled 4 different style dresses and I probably would have sampled more if they'd been available...but we ran out of time. The customer service has been EXCELLENT with every order! The sample dresses arrived within a few days and the return process was easy. I would highly recommend you taking advantage of the sampling program if time allows. I found that each style fit a little different within the same size.
For me, I ended up ordering two final dresses in different colors and styles...and I'm so glad I did . The navy one I returned was way too big in the bust area and sleeves. But the Sheena was perfect. I returned the navy one and was waiting to make a review until Azazie credited my account. Again, this was handled flawlessly. Over the last few months I've made several purchases on different orders and the customer service as been EXCELLENT each time. I can recommend this Azazie without hesitation and would order from them again.
The Sheena dress is very elegant and beautiful. I will add pictures to my review after the October 25th wedding.
