I got my dress off Olivia Bottega.
I was hesitant at first also, since it’s an extremely important decision and purchase without actually trying it on. But I did it anyway.
I measured myself multiple times during different times and on different days for about 2 weeks to get my most accurate measurements. You may be able to go to a seamstress and get professionally measured (I’d recommend this). My measurements were nearly perfect! (Thank god!) and only had minor alterations to being in shoulder and sleeves to fit my petite frame. Honestly as nerve wrecking as the process was and the waiting and anticipation, it was totally worth it! I messaged the seller back and forth for a good month before making my final decision. In fact, I never tried on a single wedding dress before ordering.. I just saw it, loved it, and got it haha.Be sure to read every single review, and communicate with the seller many times before actually purchasing! Olivia Bottega dresses are one of a kind and usually very affordable (from what I’ve seen and my own experience!) and are very good quality!Here’s my dress!
Olivia completely went above and beyond and exceeded all of my expectations 😍 I couldn't have imagined a more perfect wedding dress!! The dress fits perfectly (I definitely recommended sending your measurements, make sure you have someone else take them though) and it looks just like the picture. It's huge and super sparkly :) Olivia was extremely kind and answered any questions I had, and she sent me some pictures of the dress before shipping it out to me. I absolutely recommend buying your wedding dress from Olivia Bottega, I promise you you won't regret it! ❤️
My dress fits perfectly and very sparkly, just the way I like it. It took about a month or two from my date of order. Shipping was from China, and was explained that Russia has stopped most flights from going out and they would send the dresses to their China counterpart by truck and send to me by flight from China. Did not receive the dress bag in my package initially (read from other reviews that they did receive one), so I enquired and they quickly sent out the bag from Russia a few weeks later. Overall I am happy with my purchase, but my expectation for the customer service was a bit of a letdown as my order wasn't picked up/given updates until a week later I sent a message to enquire and found out that it was overlooked.
Ladies: do not hesitate to order from Olivia Bottega.
My dress turned out STUNNING. Anatasia took my personalization without issues and created the dress of my dreams. Words cannot describe how beautiful this came out. 100% worth the risk of ordering online, even with never touching, or trying this gown on. The fit is near perfect, with some minor alternations needed just as any dress would need. The customer service is AMAZING. The ladies helped me with all of my questions and concerns. Most definitely took some time to create, but the shipping was very fast despite COVID. Well worth the 2.5 month wait. I do not regret any of my experience one bit. You will NOT be disappointed.
