I was worried at first, I've never worn a dress with absolutely no back before! But it a beautiful dress. I'm a UK size 8, and the size 2 fitted me fine EXCEPT I'm 5 foot 7, wearing 3 inch heels, and I had to have it taken up 2 inches to stop it dragging on the floor. The only thing I would say is you will need to buy body tape!! But this dress is definitely worth it, I got so many compliments.

I adore my dress! I ordered it in watermelon, a size 6, and it was the exact colour I expected and fit me wonderfully, just as a size 6 should've. The measurements were very accurate to what was described on the website. The time it took to ship was also accurate. It came sooner than expected because I ordered a size 6 not a custom size, so it took about two weeks to get to me (Canada). The quality was quite good, it's a light dress (a satin sort of underlay with a chiffon covering) which is ideal for a summery long dress.

A few tips if you order this dress...There was a $53.97 duty that I had to pay, in exact change, to the courier when they came. I was not notified of this other than "make sure you check tariffs" which wasn't clear or included in my initial total. However, the overall cost of the dress was still less than what I would probably pay at a retail store, so it wasn't a huge disappointment. Also, as many people have posted, body tape is needed. It's simple for the comfort factor of the dress, and because if you lean over (like slouch) then the fabric comes away from your body, embarrassingly. Easy fix with tape. As for the clasps at the neck, they were fine, and a safety pin could back you up if you're nervous of them breaking. It is a little challenging to walk in because its slightly fitted, but it's not the kind of dress you'd be running around in anyways.

I ordered this dress for prom and it was fantastic. I definitely suggest ordering this dress or from this site because I had many friends who had terrible luck with online dress orders, but mine was a success story.

Here are some pictures of the side and back views of the dress.

Just got my dress via DHL express today (on a Sunday!!), they rang to ask if I would be home to receive this on Friday first.

To be honest, I was a little worried about ordering a custom made dress online. But I am so pleased that I did. The melon colour of the dress is like it is in the pictures, and I can't fault the material nor the sewing. I normally wear US 2. The size chart on the website is true, so accordingly, I ordered a size 4 - bust-wise I am a size 2, hip and waist/hip wise I am closer to a size 4. I did not opt for custom sizing as I was thinking I would probably need to bring it for minor alterations anyway, bigger was better than smaller. Similarly, I was advised the same by the very helpful staff on their Live Chat.

In my opinion, this dress needs very careful sizing especially for the bust. It needs to cover the bust, and it has to be a good fit to avoid any exposure. Mine is a little loose at the bust, but I think it can be fixed easily. Looking at the quality now, I think I would have ordered custom sizing and it would probably have fitted perfectly.

I agree that the metal clasps at the neck can be improved, in fact I will probably replace it with a button or something else, depending on what my tailor recommends.

I bought this to attend a night event. I will definitely return again maybe when I need to shop for my own wedding evening dress! Thanks!

I ordered this dress for my matron of honour and it is absolutely stunning. I was a little hesitant about ordering on line, but I will definitely order from Lightinthebox again, and I highly recommend them. The dress came just as it was shown.

hi, is this dress in stock now? will it arrive to australia by 25th july?
  • Dear sig,

    Yes, the dress is available now:) And we will need a Tailoring Period of  7-9 working days and Shipping Time of 3-8 days. Since you need the dress before 25th July, based on the estimated delivery time, it’s very possible it will arrive on or just before that date, but there may also be a chance it arrives shortly after.
