This dress was probably the first or second on the website that I saw and I just couldn't go past it, it was me all over. My friends thought that I was nuts buying something online (they told me this AFTER I had bought it and it arrived) but I got the best compliments about the dress on the big day and I couldn't be happier.
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.
Very well made. Can't believe how inexpensive it was. It was comfortable. I will be returning it as I am not comfortable with that much cleavage showing, additionally those 40 double D's aren't as perky as they used to be. I am a 16 in a dress size and I ordered an 18 W and it was pretty much a perfect fit.
I fell in love with this dress as soon as i saw it, it ticked all the boxes. I never went near any bridal shops and every dress i saw online came no where near this one.
I ordered it to be custom made to my measurements, although was a bit wary as i have a big bust, and long legs. When i tried it on at first, i thought that i didn't like it, basically as it was too big and didn't sit right at the bust area, although the quality and look of the dress was fantastic. It cost me £80 to get the dress altered and steamed, but i felt the end result was well worth it. The lace sleeves were a lovely touch, the train is really quite long and the dress is actually quite heavy!
I opted for a non strapless dress because of the big bust so i could wear a bra, but the shoulders are too wide for this, and i went without, which was fine as the built in support was secure when the dress had been altered. the wide shoulders provided a lovely neck line, albeit sometimes when i sat down it felt a bit cleavagey.
It cost about £60 for the customs charge, but with this, the alterations and the postage - my dress, which received no end of compliments was about £300 in total.
I felt like a princess, and would urge people not to be scared of ordering online!! Good luck to all you brides to be xx
hi Mrs Burns, congratulation on your wedding !
Could you please tell me if you've been wearing a petticoat ? and did you and how did you contact "light in the box" about the size of your biceps for the sleeves ?
Thank you for your answer .

People are amazed that this dress did not cost thousands of dollars. It is stunning, well made and fit me like a glove (my measurements fit the size 12 chart). I only needed to get it hemmed. It arrived exactly one month after ordering it. We went to Italy for a destination wedding. After traveling so long, the dress only required steaming on the sleeves and hem. The lace and pearl detail are exquisite. In the picture is also a LITB veil, which we added more pearls to and rhinestones. If you want an alternative to strapless, but still want to look feminine, this is the dress!! Thank you so much, Light In The Box!
This dress was soooo beautiful. I had to do a few alterations once I got it but it was perfect and I have so many photos coming. Wish I had more to send now. I never got so many compliments in my life. The dress flowed and was classy and just beautiful! I tried on many dresses and this one was different. My budget was very tight. I did not think I could afford a dress for most dresses are in the 2000 range. To me this looked like a 2000.00 dress. No one would ever know! I loved it!!!!
I just got my dress in last week, the wedding is not until 4/6 so no pictures yet. I was worried that it would not fit, I was crying when I put it on, it was like it was made for me, it fit like a glove and it is everything in the picture and more. I can't wait until the wedding day to wear it, it is beautiful and it makes me feel beautiful. I have tried it on 3 times since I got it just to see it in the mirror. My rating would be a 10 star, you never know what you are going to get when you order something, I always like to touch the fabric and try things on, I don't like to buy anything without trying it on, sizes run so different. But I could not be more pleased with this dress the size was right, (perfect fit). It is THE DRESS for me.
thank you thank you thank you The day came and the dress was a hit! Everyone thought it was custom made for me, wonderful!!!!! buy this dress!
I too was nervous about ordering a wedding dress online. I was more worried about the quality of the dress at the prices they advertise. I was very pleased when I opened the box. Finished seams, very well made. I ordered my dress on June 8 and received it by the end of the month. It is gorgeous!!! The shoulders are a little wide, but that can be fixed. Perfect fit otherwise. Thank you so much.
Wedding day was perfect!!!! Photos added for you to see. Had so many compliments on my dress.... and with a little help (silicon inserts) no bra was needed for the big day.
Oh MY God! How beautiful is this dress!, A perfect fit, My dress was custom made and I do recommend
watching the video on measurements for a perfect fit. I agree with many of the other reviews written , this dress is better than the photo shown it's magnificent!

No problems at all to fix the arms right...When you have ordered, just use your order number and sent a ticket and tell your arm size...I just did!

this dress is beautiful. the quality is amazing. it will just need taking in at the waist, and the shoulders. the service from light in the box was exceptional. i would highly recommend them. i also have ordered a bridesmaid dress which was fantastic also. I got married three weeks ago, my dress was so comfortable.... here is a picture, the brides maid dresses were from light in box also.
I was thinking of getting this dress in pink as it not my first wedding so do not want white. It looks lovely,nice to see it in a picture in the actual colour.

Which color pink is this... it's very beautiful. Also, which dress did you order for your bridesmaid and what color is it? Thanks. You look gorgeous!

I liked this dress because of the sleeves initially from the pictures online. Wearing it for my wedding, I loved it even more for the simplicity and nd elegance it offered in the material. I received many compliments, but even more so I felt wonderful it in. The alterations I had done to it were minimal. The shoulders needed to be adjusted and of course the length, as well the tailor added 5 bustles to manage the long train. I was married underneath Bridal Veil Falls, near Telluride, and this dress matched the outdoor theme perfectly. I must add that I was able to get the dress zipped up by myself, even though I was surrounded by loving people who were willing to help me get ready.
