I had some alterations made to make it my dream dress and, in having those made, learned some things about the dress.Number one: it's kinda off. The angle of the v leading from the busy to the shoulder is different to the v leading from the shoulders to the back zip. It makes the dress fit funky and nearly requires alterations. You'll either have slippage at the shoulder or gaping at the sides of the backless back. You'll know what I mean when you get it.Number two: the fabric is inexpensive at best. When you're having it altered, your seamstress is going to have a hard time matching because, of course, their goal is quality.Number three: the applique and beading aren't tacked down very well.Number four: the modesty panel built in to the cleavage area is slightly crooked. I left it alone as only there wearer is likely to notice it, but it does bear consideration.About this dress: it's lovely. Truly it is. You get more than you pay for and it has plenty of malleability, so you can change lots and make it truly your own. It fits reasonably well (follow the sellers sizing chart), it flows nicely, and it looks great for a fancy event. I used mine as a wedding dress and it seemed that purpose very well.It comes VERY long, for all you lovely tall ladies out there. Shorter ladies, it's easy to hem up. We cut about a foot ish off mine and I'm 5'5,. The ivory is exactly that.What I changed about mine: first and most obviously, I added bishop sleeves. I can't help it; I LOVE how romantic they look!! The rib cage area had to be let out a little. It needed to be shortened by a lot. We added a hook to the top of the zipper, as it wasn't very stable. We added a tie from shoulder to shoulder access the back with a long dangling charm. It was cute, but it wasn't necessarily my dream. This was used to offset the misalignment of the front and back. It worked brilliantly.About me: I am 5'5,. 180lbs. 38B. I have a relatively flat stomach but back fat, hips, and thighs for days. This dress is sheer from waist to shoulder except for boob pads that do precious little, but the sheerness isn't obvious or very noticeable at all.I know I've listed a lot of negative sounding things here, but this is a very pretty dress. It probably isn't good for repeated use. An event or two every now and then, perhaps.TLDR: I loved it. I felt amazingly pretty and feminine. It needed some help to be perfect, but for an inexpensive wedding dress, I expected that. As long as you expect to spend a bit on alterations and get a quote ahead of time, you won't be disappointed.Amount I spent purchasing this dress on Milanoo: $67Amount I spent having it altered to fit my weird shape, hemmed, sleeves and tie back added: $50Total amount spent on my wedding dress: roughly $120.Am I pleased with my purchase? YesDid it arrive on time? YesWould I recommend it? Absolutely.
The armpits are slightly small, but nothing I cannot fix.
