A-Line/Princess V-neck Floor-Length Tulle Mother of the Bride Dress With Ruffle Beading Sequins #62861
mum.me aka Robyn
I went shopping at the local dress shop for a ball gown. I assumed I would be a size 16, so I tried it on. It was a little too long and I couldn't do it all the way up at the back. I took a look on this site, and the measurements for a size 16 that they give were IDENTICAL to the one I tried on. That made it lucky for me, because I then knew what I would have to order. I ordered a custom order based on a size 16 - the bust the same measurement, the waist up by 3cm and the hips down by 4cm and the hollow to floor down by a HUGE 12cm. I am 5 foot 8 inches, so be sure that you measure correctly. The size 14 and 16 have the same hollow to floor measurement (155cm) and I cut it down to 143cm. They say they add 5cm on to the length from the measurement you give from hollow to floor for heels. I kept that, but I wish I had cut that down by even half, as I had relatively small heels (about 2 1/2 to 3cm) on for comfort and it dragged a bit..not too bad though. If I had kept it to the floor I could have worn ballet slippers as I couldn't see my feet :). I did ask the question by email about the length and they tried to call me to discuss, but since I didn't answer they emailed me. What service!!! I could have put the bust down by a couple of cm's too but the built in bra is so good that it didn't look too big and certainly didn't pucker. Because of the tulle, I had to take it to a professional cleaner to press before the ball, it would be hard unless you had a steam press to do it yourself. The dress is BEAUTIFULLY made, fully lined and SO comfortable. While I am definitely not as thin as the model and it looks a bit different on me, I think that it looks lovely on. That's one of the reasons I picked this site, is seeing all the everyday people with the dresses on so that you can picture what it looks like on a similar body type. I will have no hesitation with ordering from them again. Fast to ship...GREAT!!!
I couldn't have asked for a more perfect MOB gown. For an extra 20 bucks, you can get custom measurements, which I highly recommend. MAKE SURE THAT YOU GET A NECK-to-floor measurement in addition to measurements requested on the site to avoid paying for addl alterations!The fabric was lovely--my daughter's wedding was on a hot day--and I was very comfortable throughout. Although I had some initial concerns about possible scratchiness of the tulle, it was soft and lovely. And I adore the color--watermelon. Thx, JJ's House!
I customed order this dress for my daughter's wedding. It arrived within the timeframe stated by the company. Then dress is a perfect fit and beautiful. Exactly as it was online. I'm so elated.
My dress was perfect! It arrived quickly & fitted perfectly. I didn't need special underwear because of the perfect fit.
I felt like a beautiful princess wearing it and received so many compliments.
I cant say enough good things about this dress and the service I received. I sent my custom sizes in to order my dress and the next day I receive an inquiry to one of my measurements. Sure enough I had it wrong and sent the correct measurement. That alone is impressive. I got the dress in no time and it is stunning! The quality of the materials and workmanship are top notch and I cant wait until my sons wedding to wear it. I would definitely order from here again
I love the floor-length dress because it covers my thick legs.
And it makes me very elegant.
It fits perfectly and has a good quality.
Thanks JJ for such detail in making these for my daughter's wedding!
