I ordered this dress for my mother to wear at my wedding last month. Couldn't have been happier with the quality, exactly as pictured. Had it custom made, probably could have been a little smaller, but my mom is teeny tiny. It was also VERY long.
I ordered all of my bridal party's dressed from LITB.
This is an amazing dress!! I selected it as my bridesmaid's dresses for a December wedding, and it worked perfectly! The color was burgundy, and each girl had it custom tailored. As per usual with LightInTheBox dresses, the straps were a little too long, but a quick stitch fixes that. One of the girls did the hollowtofloor measurement barefoot, which meant the dress was a little short once she got her shoes on, but other than that 3 very different body types looked glorious in this dress!
I ordered this dress for myself for a holiday musical revue. It fit like a glove when I received it... unfortunately, since I needed to be able to sing and dance, I had to let the dress out a bit. I also measured the hollowtofloor without shoes on, so the dress was a bit too short. Thankfully, the tailoring was such that those alterations were simple to accomplish.
Lovely quality dress. Ordered a standard size 14 and had it slightly altered for a better fit. I am 5'10" and was pleased that it was just the right length. The material was real quality and the grape colour I ordered received loads of favourable comments. I found I had to wear a strapless bra as the bones built into the dress were not strong enough but that wasn't a problem. The only slight niggle was the plastic fasteners on the straps, one broke the first time I tried it on so I replaced them with stronger ones which kept pinging off during the day wish I'd fastened them down by sewing. I am in my fifties and wore this dress for my registry office wedding and it was ideal.
Please be aware there is quite a hefty customs and VAT charge to pay on delivery. I was not aware of this and didn't have the correct money to pay the UPS driver, had to pay him £40 and still haven't received a receipt or my change. Wasn't happy with UPS waited in all day Monday and they finally delivered 2.30 pm on the Tuesday.
Lovely pictures. What colour was your fascinator?

this was such a beautiful dress, custom sized for me. The fabric, the details, the tailoring were all exemplary. I received tons of compliments on the dress as well as the color. Could not have been happier. Quickly finished and shipped for a custom order. I will be ordering my gowns from here for events for sure.
Could you please tell me in what colour is your dress?
I wish you happy New Year

Ich habe mit viel Angst zum ersten Mal in meinem Leben ein maßgeschneidertes Kleid bestellt und bin begeistert! Lieselotte in champagner war mein Brautkleid und es saß auf Anhieb, Länge stimmte, alles stimmte. Und in erstaunlicher Qualität. Ich bin ziemlich klein und habe viel Busen. Ein Hingucker!
Hi I was invited to a Sapphire Ball where Sapphire was essential, I had no sapphire clothing so decided to take a chance on this website. I read all the reviews very carefully (which I found really useful) and decided to take the bull by the horns and order. I went for custom made and ordered the dress in Sapphire Blue. I was a little worried about the time I had (one month) but on ordering I was kept full informed all the way through about the dispatch date. When the dress arrived I was highly delighted. It fitted me like a second skin. There was a little too much material in the skirt so I took it to a local seamstress who took some off for me. For a custom made dress I thought the price was very reasonable, the only downside (and this was no fault of Light in the Box) was that I received an import duty bill of £29.53. This was quite a shock so I think people need to be prepared for this when ordering even with the £29.53 added on, I still felt it was good value and would not hesitate to use Light in the Box again. Thank you.
Could you tell me the colour of this dress?

I bought this beautiful outfit custom made, a MUST if you want it to have a 'made for you'' quality about it. I am a large lady but my shape is in proportion so buying an outfit in a store was not an option for me as I wanted to feel like the outfit fitted perfect for me rather than I fitted into it.
It was delivered within 3 wks after ordering, and was truely an exquisite gown to view up close and to touch. Although it appears delicate to look at, there is nothing delicate about it. It is beautifully made and there is ample surplus material within the garment.
I had an alterer take it up so it rested at the start of my feet and below the ankle. I also got her to take in the sleeves as they come a bit wide for the style of the dress. I also got a diamond brooch to pin the bolera to the strap on the dress as the bolera is a bit top heavy and kept 'riding' back when I moved around in it.
The colour is definately brighter, more redish, than the pic depicts but it was still absolutely fabulous to look at.
I felt a million dollars and quite the Mother of the Bride while wearing it. I got complimented over and over on the exquisiteness of my choice and many have taken the web details of where I bought it.
I have put 2 pics with this review, one outside and one inside, to give an idea of the colour and fit in both lights, hope this helps others.
The dress cost about e80 to buy custom made, customs charged e40, alterations 60 and how I felt in it...............priceless!!!
The dress was for my cousin's wedding and her colors were chocolate and ivory. I wore chocolate and it was absolutely beautiful!
I noticed that you have a ruffle added on the wrap. Did you add that or did it come that way?

I bought this dress for my mother to wear at my wedding. The color in the pictures is deceiving, I thought the color would be a wine hue but turned out to be bright red. It was still very pretty and glamorous. I opted to remove the stones on the front of the dress to give it a more elegant look. Very pretty dress and fit my mother well. She loved it and was stunning at the wedding.
