This dress was everything that I had ever imagined, and was exactly as pictured. I followed the measurement instructions and it was just about a perfect fit out of the box. The only issue for me was that the cap sleeve was a little tight and digging into my shoulder a little, only because the cap came over a bit too tight. My mother in law is a seamstress and she fixed it by opening the top of the sleeve very quickly. She said that it was wonderfully easy because there was about a full inch of fabric so she was really happy.
The dress was everything I had ever imagined. I was really worried about buying a wedding dress online, but honestly, it really was the best decision that I could have made. I emailed them and told them that my timeline was a little tight. They had an expedite fee that I could pay and it arrived 4 weeks later, just in time (two weeks before the wedding). The quality was amazing.
If you're worried or on the fence, take a deep breath, and follow the instructions to measure, and have someone else (like your mom) do the measuring. You're likely to mess it up doing it yourself. If you're really worried and don't have anyone in the family with sewing (particularly clothing experience, meaning you trust them to measure you correctly), find a dressmaker or seamstress and ask or pay them to measure you. None of my guests could believe that I bought my dress online and didn't have to alter the bodice at all because it fit so well. When we measured we found that I matched the measurements for the size 4 perfectly so we ordered it that way, and it really did fit perfectly. I was so excited to wear a dress without a bra for the first time in my life. My mother-in-law said that if there was any doubt go bigger rather than smaller, she said that she could always fix too big, but sometimes you can't fix too small.
I wanted a nice dress, I wanted a short dress, and I didn't want my mom spending thousands of dollars (I think my mom was willing to). Not only that we had one of those very hastily planned end of COVID weddings so the timeline was a little troubling. Everything that I could get in time seemed to look cheap, or it was overly expensive and still not what I was looking for. Once I found "Ieie Bridal" I fell in love. I would happily have paid double for this dress.
Every time I emailed them they were super responsive and really helpful. Apart from the nerve-wracking wait for the dress I really don't have anything negative to say about it. I have recommended this site to everyone I know.
