The dress looked exactly as pictured, and in my measurements I made a note to them that I am very tall and asked them to consider this with the sleeve and skirt length. I will say the dress fits snug, and the material has little stretch, but this is clearly noted in the description, so I expected it. Basically, Light In The Box followed all of my requests to a tee; so if you want the dress to fit a little looser, say, in your hips, its up to you to add that to your measurements and that's just how you'll get it.
Finally, I just want to note that the dress was of SUCH high quality. I really was surprised that it was so well made, lined, etc. I did not think I would receive so much for this price. I believe there was one teeny tiny spot on the one hip where there was a little more space than the other, but my boyfriend and best friends could even see what I was talking about. I will definitely order again and have already recommended the site to my friends shopping for custom formal and wedding dresses. Thanks so much.
Here is a picture from that night, although it doesn't properly show the whole dress, I hope you get an idea.
