I was very nervous about ordering this dress online, as I have had bad experiences in the past. But I must say I am so thrilled with this dress!! It is exactly the color on the picture (the red I wanted!!). It is extremely well-made. The workmanship is exceptional. And the built in bra is not something I would expect in a dress in this price range. It fits perfectly and I can't wait until next year's formal work Christmas party to wear it. I will definitely buy from Light in the box again...and soon! I have some other very expensive dresses and this one is my favorite! I took some pics as soon as it arrived so I'll post again when I have the shoes, shawl and makeup.
Another success story for LITB.
I ordered this dress in Royal Blue for a Cuban Wedding in May. The ordering process was simple and the delivery was prompt. Dress was received just as ordered. Great quality and a beautiful colour. I ordered this larger than required with the intent to do alterations (figure it is easier to go smaller than bigger). I am 5' 8" and the length is PERFECT! I will post a picture after the alterations are done.
I only had to alter near the upper waist and breast area so keep that in mind. I am a US Steet Size 10/12 but ordered a Size 14.
The colour was amazing in the sunlight! Thanks again LITB...
Perfect fit, well made, good quality materials. The color ordered was "grape" but in reality the dress is more of a plum color, more red than purple (see photo attached), and does not look like the same grape that was shown online for another dress of the same materials.
I ordered this dress for my sister-in-laws wedding, I was delighted with the style and colour & the dress got loads of compliments at the wedding.
Unfortunately I ordered a size 10 US rather then a size 10 UK by accident... my own fault! So the dress was much too big when it arrived. Luckily my mum is good with a sewing machine and was able to take it in for me. My mum use to make her own dresses when she was younger and so would know about dress-making & materials etc (i wouldn't have a clue!) - my mum said that the dress was really well made & she was very impressed with it.
Very happy over all!
looks great the dress, what color is it?

The quality and workmanship of the dress were excellent, hence the 4 stars. My experience with LITB was disappointing however in one regard: the length of the dress. I was concerned about a knee-length dress being too short (I am almost 5'8" ) and therefore decided to pay for custom measurements. I found this in the FAQ section:
"I would like to order a knee length dress made to measure.
The size chart asks you measure from the hollow of the neck to the floor. If I am ordering a knee length dress, would this measurement be from the hollow of the neck to the knee?
We use the hollow to the floor measurement to determine where the knee is and then cut the correct length according to the dress design."
However this method of guessing is not what I pay extra money for. It did not work in my case. The dress was too short. I had to order a shawl of the same colour and attach it to the bottom of my dress to get the right length. So why not include a HOLLOW TO HEM measurement option for knee-length dresses, so that people who are willing to pay for custom tailoring get exactly what they want and paid for?!!!
I'll attach before and after pictures to the review.
I loved this dress the moment I saw it and when it came I wasn't disappointed. It arrived way in advance and it was for a special occasion. Everyone commented on it and I felt a million dollars.
I had some photo taken in it.
The dress is really well made and fits perfectly to the measurements given. I ordered it in the colour 'pool' and the dress matches the colour sample on the website perfectly. The built in bra is very comfortable and solves the usual problem with finding the right bra!
Purchasing the dress was easy and it came a lot sooner than expected. Communication was reassuring as I was always updated as to where my order was. The dress is great value for money, especially as it was in the sale!
I've been looking everywhere to find a dress for my school's prom in July and found one I liked as soon as I looked on light in the box, having been recommended by a friend to do so. The website provided plenty of choice of styles and colours which made it easy to find something I liked!
Overall a very high quality dress which was easy to purchase and track - would definitely use light in the box again in future.
As many others said before, i was not sure about ordering online. To be perfectly honest - I ordered my dress like a test before I order my WEdding dress. Well - the tailoring is perfect as its the color. Te color is exactly like on the color chart (burgundy). I ordered 16w and its a little bit big over my breast but I can have that fixed. I really just wanted to try out the style and sizing. So i know now where my wedding dress will come from. Thank you!!! Plus the dress will be perfect for my after the ceremony garden party :))). I also add some pictures as its really helpful to see the dress on real people.
I bought this dress because I'm MOH in one of my best friends' wedding. This is the most perfect shade of red, and it fits snug! If you normally wear in between sizes, I wear sizes 4-6, order a size up because it has a corset built-in which makes it tighter. But, overall this dress is fantastic and very well made! I absolutely love the built-in bra, since I'm a 34B it gives me something extra.
The dress itself is great and just as the picture shows. However the size was wrong - despite my measurments match size 6 exactly (+-1 cm), it arrived bigger for about 2 sizes (see image). Fortunately it wasn't so hard to fix and also the LitB support was AMAZING and beyond all hopes. They made sure to resolve the problem and also responded in a very timely, frendly and professional manner, so I ended up with a great dress and really good feeling about the whole experience. Thank you, LitB!
