They arrived in one box, with each in its own ziplock bag. The craftsmanship is excellent. At first, I couldn't even tell that they were inside-out. There was no evidence of threads or stitches--all seams are perfect, both inside and outside. The dresses are true to size and color, and both drape beautifully. They both look and feel great! The only problem I'll have now is deciding which to wear to my step-daughter's wedding. Either way, I'm keeping them both and will wear the other one to a future special occasion.
I would not hesitate to order from Light In The Box again, and will definitely recommend this company to my friends and relatives.
