I ordered this dress for a formal wedding at the end of September last year. I was hesitant to buy it as I don't usually buy clothes online (bad luck), but I couldn't find ANYTHING that was formal enough without breaking the bank in regular stores. I decided to try my luck and I am SO happy I did! The dress arrived very quickly and fit perfectly! The only issue I could see for shorter people is that the dress is extremely long. I didn't have time to have the dress hemmed as it was a little long for me, but I wore taller heels and it was perfect! The side slit was a little high for my liking as well, but I was able to sew it a couple more inches on my own which was really easy to do even for a novice sewer like myself. I got so many compliments on the dress and I felt beautiful in it! I would highly recommend this dress to anyone!
