I bought this for my wedding. I had reservations about buying 'blind' but needn't have worried,The dress was beautiful when it arrived. It had lovely material and a nice heaviness to it that made it feel a much more expensive dress than it is. I put a tea length petticoat under it which helped to lift it and show it off.. As I am 5ft 2.5" I was concerned that it might drown me. What I was really impressed with was that the Mialondon rep offered to to make it to my height under the existing measurements for the size, so it would be right, and I didn't have the anxiety of a 'custom made' dress that I couldn't return. I loved it and would definitely use the company again. Can't praise it enough.
