I tried on several dresses in person to have "the experience" with my mom & sister, but couldn't stop thinking about this gorgeous sparkly dress I had seen online. Like many others I was nervous about ordering online but it turned out beautifully. I did have quite a few alterations- mostly because I ordered it much longer than it needed to be just in case ordering online didn't go well. My provided measurements appeared to followed exactly. Once altered, I felt amazing in it. I also took the chance of ordering the shorter version for my reception dress, and was just as happy with that one. I will say be careful what you place the order for if you are particular about necklines. I placed my order for the Klouzi 2 (plus size version) which is pictured with a straight neckline, and through email exchanges I didn't think to clarify that, so I ended up with the sweetheart neckline pictured in the Klouzi 2 (standard sizing) photos. I was still extremely happy with how it turned out. Everyone was so patient & helpful via email even before I placed my orders (I had ordered swatches & couldn't decide on color, needed more photos, etc.). I think both dresses took about 7-8 weeks (both custom based on measurements) & I received videos of the dresses from the shipping mgr when they were ready to ship out. I'm so happy I took the leap of faith to get the sparkly, special dress I had my eye on. Thank you!
