      I think I am going to take a leap and try this too. I have read a lot of feedback on eBay, and people seem to be really happy. I will look for Landy. Thanks so much to everyone that has posted an opinion here. It really helps!

          I ordered this dress hoping it looks beautiful and if it needs some alterations I can just go get those done.

          It does have a corset back so I know that helps but I realize it might be too long, which isnt that hard to fix anyway.

          Here is my dress..

          It will be in white, and I should be getting it by mid to late March.
          Once its here I will post pics :)
          Oh my gosh that is sexy! I even like the red option ( i know u are doing white, and that will look fab!) We have to see when you get it!

            Ok so I have a confession to make. LOL
            I wanted to see what my dress was going to look like in white. So I emailed another vendor and they sent me a pic of how they make the white one, I almost cried! This is what she sent me:

            Dont get me wrong, if this is their final product it looks great but my favorite part about this dress is the bottom, and its nothing like it. So I figured I should email gianinarbridal and she sent me pics this dress in 3 different colors, front and back! And I am so happy!!!

                This is so that you know you can always ask them if theyve made your dress before and how does it look.

                  Here is mine, please pardon the bad hair and no smile on some pics, DBF was driving me crazy not taking the pics like I wanted. Front:

                  On this pic I'm pinching the back to hold it better:

                  See how much room I have at the back:

                  I don't know if you can see how the neckline was done, it is kind of sweetheart strapless, and they added that chiffon layer to give it a halter like look. Not very linear like a true halter, specially since I have nothing to fill it. Can you also see the creasing at the front about waist high? Seem like the extra layer used on the bodice (sandwiched between the satin and the inner layer is not sewn perfectly straight and bunches a bit. We tried to iron this out without success.

                  I think most of it is fixable, not sure the neckline can be made perfect though, which disappoints me, since how hard can it be to make a nice halter in the first place? (Adding lots of padding should help, I've tested it using my magical filled push-up bra.) Someone here gave me a reference for alterations, I have to contact them, but I'm so busy next week, and time is running fast!
                  Hi

                  Your dress looks lovely, it really suits you.
                  I know you are dissapointed with the fit, but it is easier to alter, if the dress is bigger.
                  The models in the pictures are way thin dont forget so the dress will look slightly different on everybody. Hopefully you will find a seamstress to fix the bits your not happy with.
                  good luck

                    Hi Ladies,
                    Thanks for all of the great options. I have emailed a few of the options to get pricing. What was it that "sold" you on a particular company? I'm so confused as to who to work with. Thanks!

                      I chose gianinarbridal because they send you proof pictures as soon as the dress is done and they still allow changes before they finally send you the dress (I specifically asked them about that). This was mainly why I decided to go with them. Also I didnt hear anything bad about them unlike about Landy, Duosheng or the other named companies. Prices are reasonable and you can always chose between a cheap and expensive option. But even if you go with the cheaper fabric, all the dresses I saw looked great. In my opinion they come closest to the original picture.
                      Good luck in deciding. Tell us who you chose.
