The lining of this dress is a heavy, beautiful satin with a floaty layer of black chiffon, the measurements were perfect and the dress just hugs my larger curves perfectly. I am having a simple bustle added to the train. The seamstress kept telling me to cut it but that train is the whole reason I purchased it. I do a little modeling and plan on wearing this dress for a photoshoot. I cannot wait for my next dress to arrive! And did I mention their customer service is ahhhhmazing? For the quality, the price and the service, I look forward to purchasing many dresses from Light In The Box!
