    Here is what I mean by...very complicated dress. I got this pic from Duosheng as..their version of the legendary Vera Wang Diana dress. The top 60% is almost 95% exact...but the bottom 40% is total off and weird (it looks like it went throught a paper shredder). It is still a nice dress, but very far away from the original.

      I'm really worried about something, though; when I sent the seller my height measurement, I gave the measurement from my shoulder to heels, with shoes on. But, she wrote back and wanted my measurement from my head to my heels, so I gave that to her, too. Now I'm worried that she might somehow get the dress made in the length that goes form my head to heels, instead of shoulder to heals. I'm so scared! I mean, why would a seamstress need to know what my height, starting from the top of my head, is?

      gianinar asks for that measurement too. I think they take it all into consideration. Like prettypigpig said.

          Thanks! That made me feel a bit better. Lol. Did you give gianinar your head-to-heel measurements with shoes on? I did, with my seller, so I'm just wondering. Mind you, it was only a 2-inch increase, but I'm curious. Lol.

            hey ladies! I have been viewing this thread for the past month following everyone's orders from the knock-off sites. Because of you I went and ordered with gianinar (sp) and felt pretty confident seeing all the great posted pix and finding out about the $60 deposit, then pictures, etc. So I joined the forum so I could post my dress in progress : )
            I ordered about 25 days before they sent the pix. I posted the pix of my dress with the written in changes of what I wanted fixed. I was pretty impressed with it, but there were definite things that stuck out to me. My dress is pretty simple (no beading, lace, etc.) so I surprised that some things were still "off". I sent back the pictures with what I wanted changed about a week and a half ago---hoping it will be done soon!!! Let me know what you think or if anything else I did not catch sticks out to you in the pictures.

              MzMinze: I think your dress is beautiful! I know what you mean about that "band," though. It does look a bit odd and distracting.

                Thank MzMinze! Have you heard anything back since you mailed them the changes? I think overall your dress is gorgeous, but you are so right to pick out any flaws you see.

                  I got my dress from gianinarbridal!!!!

                  Quality is really good, material is better than some I looked at for 10x the price over here!! Only bad/good part is I lost quite alot of weight since ordering so its quite big, I really like it but its hard to tell 100% when its not the right size - Will resize nearer the time. I also need to get a good strapless bra for some "oomph"!

                  The hoop i got from gianinarbridal was not any good, quite big on the waist and falls down or isnt long enough so makes the dress look slightly odd near the bottom.

                  I'm not 100% this is my main dress yet I will get a good bra (lol), a better hoop and someone to hold it in for me and then decide

                    i love it love it love it!! i am so happy to hear that you were pleased with it!

                    this is quite similar to the one i am hoping to order, so i am so happy to see yours

                    is the hoop included in the dress price? or is this extra? i am wanting my less poofy than it is meant to be, so i may forgo ordering a hoop and see how it is when i get it.

                    thanks for posting!!
