This dress only comes in standard size and cannot be ordered custom made! I ordered a Size 8 in Ivory and am pleasantly surprised at the quality of the dress. Although there are little faults especially with loose stiching and beadwork, the dress overall is made in good quality and is beautiful. I will have to have the dress altered as the lenghth is way too long - I am 1,63m in height and a good 15cm can be cut off. The lace at the bottom is a seperate fabric and therefore can be removed and restiched on after it has been shortened. The dress is a bit tight around the thigh area causing the dress to pull down -this should be fixable with a good seamstress. The removable Chapel train is very heavy and I felt the dress is being pulled down even further by having it attached - I don't think I will be wearing it as it hides the beautiful lace detail.
Lightinthebox did not offer options on shipping - I had to choose the Expediated shipping option at a cost of $136.38!!! This added on large chunk to the bill - I was in no rush to have the dress as I am only getting married in March'14 but wanted to allow myself enough time if the China website would have been a flop and wouldn't have minded for the saver option.
Then the import duties and tax of RSA was an additional $102....so all in all my dress costs me $588.37!!!
Packaging - dress arrived inside out for protection in a ziploc bag and came with a dress bag to store in - very happy with the service.
All in all a happy customer (minus additional charges) and I would definatley buy from Lightinthebox again. (Will post picture of dress on wedding day at later stage)
UPDATE: LITB was so kind to reimburse me some of the Import Duties & Tax - very good customer service!
