This dress has turned out to be better than I anticipated it to be. Everything is absolutely perfect. It took longer to ship than they said it would because I had unfortunately placed my order right before their New Year. However, after emailing them with my concerns, they finished the dress and rushed my already expedited shipping. I can't really complain about that. Be aware that the pictures advertising the dress are worn with petticoats, so if you want to achieve the fullness in the picture, a petticoat will be needed. Anyway, like I said, the dress is wonderfully made. One small section of beading fell off but it's an easy fix so I'm not too concerned. I can't wait to wear this dress to my prom. It's so beautiful.
