The dress is GORGEOUS! The velvet material is lovely but fairly light and not too hot to wear. IT IS SUPER COMFORTABLE and so easy to move and dance in (as long as you pick up the train).
I wore it for prom and LOVED it. It's SO unique and one of a kind- it's so much nicer and more fitted than in the photo's provided. Honestly you will stand out in this dress, it's so different to typical prom dresses. I got so many compliments.
I only paid £85 (including shipping- DHL UK) because the shipping cost was around £20, i didn't pay any insurance and i had a coupon too.
The only thing i can say is if you can get a tailor it would be good to sew in the under material to the outer material and maybe reinforce the stones on the shoulders (none came out though). Also the neck clasp slips out quite easily, these issues are so tiny though compared to how lovely the dress is and the price.
I wore it with a sheer black top underneath to cover the backless bit and add sleeves and it was seamless and remained beautiful- for those of you who want to be a bit more covered up.
My dress was shipped 3weeks after i purchased it. After three weeks i contacted them asking about the delay(as it should have taken up to 11 days) and they offered me a $10 coupon which was nice. They promptly shipped it the day after.
DHL Charged me £24 tax before delivering my dress which i was so surprised about. I contacted LITB and they said they couldn't do much because i had not purchased insurance at the check out (which would have cost £6) but i did not expect to be taxed. But kindly, they offered a $30 voucher or a half price discount of £12(i chose the discount) which received.
