As for the dress itself, it's a pretty good rendition of the original - the main difference seems to be the fabric. Yours seems to have no beading. How does the quality feel?

I agree about it being done up tighter. There has been a massive difference when i'm dress shopping between someone who really knows what they are doing with a lace-up corset back, and those who dont. Get your sister to go dress shopping with you (pretending you don't already have an amazing dress) and get her to be (sneaky) super watchful of how they do up the corset - its not all about tightness either - its also about the ratio along the lenths - my dresser was telling us that the top one should be twice the width apart as the one right the the part where your waist clinches, and then get bigger from there - she said thats how you create the hourglass. I was totally against strapless dresses until she showed me the difference between brides who just yank them closed as tight as possible (not shapely, side boob etc) and those who use it to create the shape... I'm sure with practice she will be able to master it, and I think you will be happier with your shape in the dressa nd the way it sits when its done up perfectly
You have so convinced me to get one too
Islandbride - Can't wait to see yours! How have you found the customs in OZ - are you getting charged??

I am super dooper happy with my second dress made from LANDYBRIDAL.
It is a bit big around the chest which I will just have taken in before the wedding, fits perfectly everywhere else. (I had it made in a standard size, hence why its a bit big up top)
I also requested a deep sweetheart and was very happy with the way they did it.
I cannot recommend them enough!!
I was a bit iffy about a mermaid style dress as Im not skinny and have curves. Just need some toning in my upper half and I will be 100% happy
Joe - No probs with Australian Customs, this is my second dress through and I havent paid anything. I think it has to be over a certain amount before you get charged.
Pls excuse my yucky hair and stupid faces haha
This is the dress on the model:
Now on me:

I think the dress fits you great!! I just think there may be a difference in materials...could that be what is bothering you? Otherwise...they did a pretty good job and you look good in the dress!!
