I bought this dress for a Mother of the Groom dress in grape. I took my measurements and was able to match very closely to a standard size.... then waited a very short time, about 8 or 9 days to get my dress... The dress is stunning. It is beautifully crafted. Perfect workmanship. I have a bit of a muffin shape... When I put this dress on, the boning hides every little bulge. It fits like it was custom made. I not only feel like a princess in it, I look like one. I had been quite anxious to find something that would complement my figure.... Jen Jen House, you hit a home run with me. I will tell everyone what beautiful dresses, and quality workmanship you do. Thank you!! Please let my seamstress know, I love it!.
