I started freaking out because 3 weeks before the big day, my dress was altered too tight. I knew I wouldn't last and decided to get a second dress. I was hesitant to buy online, but went for it after reading Wedding Wire reviews of IEIE. I'm 5'7", very ***** and hippy, 155 lbs. The size 10 Caroline fit me better than I could have imagined. I couldn't zip it or hook it myself, but worth it! I'm also a DD chest and didn't have to wear a bra with this -- it has enough structure and comfort. Going with IEIE and this dress was one of the best decisions I could have made.
