It wasn't a perfect fit around the bust but I had lost a little weight from when I ordered it to when it arrived. In addition I provided my measurements to get a custom made gown. I was lucky to have a friend who is a dressmaker who added keepers on the inside of my dress to keep my bra straps from showing. Because the dress didn't fit firmly I had a buy a bra (I'm a mother of two, one 8 months and the other is 2 1/2 yrs, so the girls have started heading south and needed some help traveling back up to the north), and my friend also put in some stitching on the inside of the front of the bodice to pull it in - again so that the girls wouldn't pop out on the big day and say HELLO!
A small amount of the lining had been caught up in the bodice and rather than try and release the thread (which would have released all of the beading around the waist) my friend just clipped the smallest amount of the lining to free it - but you would never know!
I think that for the price you would be mad not to take a punt on buying a dress from Light-in-the-box, ironically it cost more to have it dry cleaned that it was to buy it. I bought another dress at the same time which I wore for pre-wedding photos and it was gorgeous - again not quite a 100% fit in the bust but no adjustments were required.
The time to make the dress and ship to Australia was bang on the estimation provided at the time of purchase.
