A-Line/Princess V-neck Floor-Length Chiffon Mother of the Bride Dress With Beading Cascading Ruffles #3181
I’m a bridesmaid and my bride had a set of criteria which was difficult to meet shopping at regular stores, given my size. I'm 5'8" and approximately 225 lbs.
I ordered a swatch which arrived quickly, and my bride approved the color and gave me the go ahead to buy the dress. I ordered this dress on 6/30/17 and it arrived on 7/7/17, much fast than I expected. I chose expedited shipping.
The dress is very well made with nice material.
I opted for the custom sizing and trust me, it’s absolutely worth the $20. I went to the local tailor and they measured me. I was careful to wear the undergarments I plan on wearing with the dress when I was measured, and did not exhale fully while I was being measured. (Apparently there's a how to measure video, but I didn’t watch it.)
Per another reviewer’s suggestion, I added a 1/2" to my measurements to "allow room for breathing". I found this was completely unnecessary (probably because I didn’t exhale fully to have the smallest measurements possible). As a result the dress is *slightly loose, but this is not a problem
I wish the ruched portion of the dress went lower over my hip than it does. The dress appears almost square on me compared to the model.
The neckline is a little low for my taste. I will tack the shoulders to raise the neckline a little bit. If I order again, I will include a hollow to bellybutton measurement
I purchased a wrap which you can see in the pictures. The wrap was also nicely made. I will likely pin the wrap so it won't fall off my shoulders for the event.
I will absolutely buy more dresses from JJ’s in the future. I’m delighted with their products and highly recommend them.
I just received this dress today. It is well made. It looks and feels like an expensive designer name gown. I am very pleased with my purchase. Many thanks to the seamstress
I ordered the custom measurements options on this dress and the fit is amazing. I'm plus-size and pear shaped, so it's really difficult for me to get a dress that fits well. This one does. It's perfectly fitted! No alterations are necessary. The fabric is nice - it is lined and boned. The "beading" doesn't really show in the photo, but it's 5 small beads with a silver thing on the bottom. This detail is really cheesy and does not do the dress justice - I'll be taking them off. The dress is well made and looks great otherwise.
This gown is beautiful exactly as wanted can't wait to wear it, I have bought a number of things from jjs and will be
purchasing more in the future, fantastic company to buy from very prompt with orders, thank you very much.
I ordered these dresses for my bridesmaids for my wedding in the fall, I opened the box this morning and cried! They are EVERYTHING I ever wanted and then some! Thank you so much for make my special day that much more special!
I am so happy with me dress. Ordering was easy, it arrived sooner than I was told, It fitted perfectly. I could not be happier with it. The colour is amazing. I would not have been able to have bought a dress like this for that price.
The dress was beautiful and very well madeI would recommend the dress be made to measureas that way, hopefully, the bodice of the dress and overall shape will be more in balance with the desired length. I was very happy with the dress.
