Did you have the Dress altered to be the length it is on you or is that the length of came. If so what is your height?

Pretty dress at a great price, it arrived promptly and carefully packaged. Some of the flowers on the skirt were sewn and placed beautifully. Other flowers were not completely sewn on and the placement of some of them were not well considered as there were four in a perfectly square pattern right under the front waistline instead of randomly placed. Those types of things can be fixed so I certainly cannot complain about the price. The bodice with built-in bra fit perfectly and the crystal detail at the waist is quite lovely. Dress runs longer than it appears in picture, the model is quite tall.
I do love this dress and am quite happy with my purchase.
hi!this is longer than the photo of the model,you ordered it this way??

No, this is the way it came. The model is 2" taller than me according to the website. I am 5'6" and you can see it touches the floor. I had it hemmed about an inch in the front so just the tips of my feet show. Hope that helps.

I was delighted when I discovered my dress though I had to make some adjustments before D Day. The dress is just so beautiful and I looked really gorgeous on my wedding day ;) It's true that the dress is original and I got so many compliments about it. I think everybody loved my dress.
The only thing I didn't appreciate is the amount they charge me at reception of the dress. I had to pay 30€ extra :(
Sarah- you looked gorgeous! how tall are you? it looks as if it is right at floor length on you but ankle length on the model in the picture. I am 5'7 and would want it to be right at floor length!

Hello Meganlyn, je fais 1m58 en taille and the dress was really too long. I had to bring it to a dressmaker to adjust it for me. Hope my answer does help somehow.

but this is longer than the one shown on the picture!
Por lilly6 14 / 03 / 2013
It is yes. I'm not tall neither so may be, it's due to that detail cause the model is really tall.

I had my wedding two days ago.. I got so many comments on my dress. Everyone loved it! I looked so beautiful.. The pictures of the flowers came out great on it.. Here are some of the wedding photos of me in the dress.. I am SO happy I decided to go with this dress.. What a great deal and my husband was nearly in tears when I got down the isle. He told me I looked like a model. Best day of my life!!
Erin, I am considering this dress for my wedding. You sound very pleased with the dress and your pictures are very pretty. I was wondering what the flowers on the dress were made out of. They look a bit shiny in the light on the pictures but then on this front page they look more of a matte finish.. Could you please let me know what type of flowers those are made of so I can decide on my dress. Lots of thanks.

Erin, what was the length of the dress like? I love this dress but feel as though the length would be a bit awkward! i am 5'7 and the model in the picture is 5'8. any thoughts on this would be so helpful! thanks!!

Hi Erin! thanks for posting your pics - it's nice to see the dress on a "real" person.
I was wondering if the roses on the skirt were made with satin? In your pictures, the shine of the roses really threw me. From the website, it looks like the roses are made with tulle.
I just got this dress an hour ago.. I love it! In fact, I wish I would have gotten it a size smaller, but after reading all the reviews their dresses running smaller, I went with my size (10) I'm a 36 bust and the size 10 is a 36 1/2 bust.. I should have went with the size 8 with a 35 1/2 bust.. All is well tho! I am impressed with my dress! Thank you light in the box!! It is well worth the money. I'm planning on having an outdoor wedding next to the river, so this dress is perfect. Oh and in these pictures I am wearing high-heels. The dress was floor length for me. It's gorgeous!
I FINALLY got my dress today. It took a month to be made, and a week to be shipped (with expedited shipping). I then had to wait another 2 weeks to get it here in England (where I'm getting married) because you're unable to change the shipping address to another country. SO! Big expectations from reading the other fabulous reviews, and I have to say, I'm a little disappointed. I would've been between a size 20-22, so I custom ordered the dress to my measurements.
The dress itself is gorgeous. It's everything I hoped it to be. The appliqués are accented with pearlescent beads. The flowers are white satin ribbon, but the quality of these is so-so. A lot of the flowers have frayed ends from the ribbon not being trimmed well. There are endless stray threads that will need to be trimmed off the dress. The fabric, though, is thicker than expected and is good quality. The built in bra was a nice touch, but it was a bit large to be useful. I will have to wear a strapless bra with it (though I am a 42 DDD or E).
The length was "floor length" for me, and does not drag. I am 5'3". I am quite happy with the length, as it's what I wanted.
Overall: I would buy this dress again because I LOVE the style. Quality wasn't 100%, and it will need some minor adjustments, but it is gorgeous nonetheless!
Update: On my wedding day, I struggled to keep the dress up. I ended up doing an emergency job to tighten around the bust. Because of the sweetheart neckline, and the fact that it scoops lower on the back than the front, the bust fits a little awkwardly. Order slightly smaller than you think.
After looking at a local bridal shop I found Light in a Box and saw this dress. It is so beautiful, the detail, flowers, accents just make it an original. It's very light weight and perfect for my August wedding! The other dresses I tried at the local shop were heavy.
Other than the bust being too large its a perfect length and fit! I didn't opt for the custom made one because the measurements were so close....I just love it! Length just sweeps the ground and no train. Not "poofy" and looks must straighter fit when you put it on.
You won't be disapointed if you get this dress.....It's beautiful! Thanks Light in a Box :)
Gorgeous Dress, exceeds my expectations!! Love love!!!
The quality of this dress is superb. It's a gorgeous dress, however if you fancy ordering it, i would highly recommend you take your own measurements rather than go with the generic UK size 18 or whatever, as these sizes are extremely small. Also worth a mention is the customer service which is really very good at resolving any issues you may have.
