Dress shipped an arrived earlier than expected. Ordered 8/15, shipped 8/30, arrived 9/1.
It came in a tiny box. I can't believe they fit this HUGE dress into that box.
Anyhow, I wanted to give my review as I really appreciated all of the other reviews and pictures. I ordered the standard size 16 thinking that I would lose a few (or 7) inches on my waist prior to the wedding. Dress does not fit right now but I ordered a corset add on kit from eBay to add extra inches in the back so I can get it to zip. As far as the quality of the dress I was extremely shocked at how well the dress was made considering it only cost $150. I didn't like the white sash/belt that came attached so I ordered a navy sequined one from Etsy for $30. My advice would be to order a size up and don't order a size that you think you want to be at because it may backfire and you will be left with a dress that doesn't zip!
I'm so glad I found this site. The dress I wanted from David's Bridal was $1200. This saved me a fortune (we are eloping). Will try to add more pictures when it actually fits but I have provided a few from just trying it on.
