My dress arrived yesterday, (1 day before the estimated shipping date) and I couldn't be more pleased!
I ordered this dress to my custom measurements in the color dark green.
(I usually range from a 16-20 in Australian size dresses depending on the style).
This was the first time I have purchased a made-to-order dress online.
I had been looking for a dress to wear to my friends wedding, and being my size and short, it is often difficult to find something in stores, and the plus size clothes are too long and the wrong shape.
I saved time trekking around the shops and money!
The finishing on my dress was very good quality, the heart shape neckline was even, hemline was straight/ correct length to just below the knee and there were no loose threads!
I would mention that despite the well constructed built-in-bra, I found that using it meant the bodice collapses at the front of the dress and doesn't look as nice. However I am big chested so if you are petite I'd suspect it would fit fine. I intend on wearing a bra and buying some clear bra straps.
In all, the finish is perfect, it was beautifully made and the color I wanted.
I will be recommending this site to all my friends.
Thank you Light in the box!
I bought this dress in royal blue for one of my bridesmaids. It has boning and drapes nice. There is a bra strap that hooks in to hold the dress close.
Nice colour and style.
È un bell abito, consiglio di prendere qualche centimetro in meno ne seno, così di sicuro non scende,per chiudere la lampo ho bisogno di aiuto, e molto dura da chiudere, no lo so se fanno tutte così o capitato solo a me. In generale abito mi piace, unica brutta sorpresa e spese di dogana molto alte :( su un ordine di 350€ circa, ho pagato 126€ di dogana. Cmq risparmio e notevole.
Ciao scusa il disturbo, in che colore lo hai preso
è davvero molto bello

I just ordered this dress in "jade" (and a lace shrug in "ivory"). I customized the size, but I am between a 22/24 on the size chart for this dress. If anyone wants to see pictures of what the dress looks like on a plus-sized woman in the "jade" colour, leave an email address in the comments section.
The dress (and shrug) is expected to ship March 31st, so I should be able to send pictures by the second week of April. If the dress looks flattering enough, I will post pictures in a second review, for everyone to see.
I'm expecting duty/taxes to be about $60+handling fee (on a $175 order), so be prepared for the extra cost. I knew about this cost before ordering, so there will be no surprises upon delivery.
Feel free to ask me any questions in a reply to this review.
EDIT: Dress shipped March 25th (Ordered on March 9th). Estimated arrival is March 28th. I will update with pictures then.
EDIT 2: Dress arrived March 28th. It's bit big/loose in the bust and a little in the waist but I don't mind getting it tailored. It's tough to get measurements exact when you're not actually being fitted in the dress, so I'm very pleased with the fit. Also, the colour is not what I was expecting for the Jade, but I really like it. The quality is AMAZING. The construction, built in bra, boning etc... make this dress spectacular. I've attached pictures.
My favourite part of this dress is the top, the sweetheart line and the fitted support so you don't need to wear a bra underneath. I recommend this dress style for those who want to have a lovely top line and a comfortable relaxed lower half. It particularly suits someone with small hips, as is my body type, and I would not recommend this dress style if you have large hips or bottom because this dress will add to that. The dress is very well made and is comfortable. From time of purchase to delivery Lightinthebox kept me informed as to the processing time and delivery. I would definitely use them again because they did exactly what they said they would do in terms of service and the dress did not disappoint.
hi there, it looks great. what colour was this?

I was like many of the ladies who have written a review - very scared - about bying my bridesmaids dresses online (product unseen) particularly when Im so far away in Australia. So I decided to purchase my chosen dress in my own size first, so if it was not good, my girls didnt lose out. So I measeure and fell into a regular size '2' (which is around a size 6-8 in Australia) I chose the colour I thought I wanted to go with then I ordered. It said it would take about 4-6 weeks, however it arrived in only 3 weeks! Immediately the quality was the first thing I noticed, the beautiful box, the zip lock bag, then THE DRESS! WOW! the quality was higher then alot I'd seen in stores here! so I tried it on and was SOLD. It is everything Id hoped and more. It has a bra strap that holds you, its lined, it feels amazing and the quality and fabrics are beautiful - Thank you! (PS- I also purchased the fabric swatch booklet albeit before the dress arrived, but that allowed me to see the fabrics first hand in case I decided on a different colour - which I ended up deciding on something different so the girls didnt have the same dress as me!) Im In love Light in the Box!) I will post better photos after my wedding this year in Oct - Thank you!
Hello!! Ok thank you so much for your review! I'm getting married in June and I love this dress and color... what color did you choose??
