    Jo,
    From the look of the pictures, it seems like they may have clamped the dress to fit the plastic model when they photographed it. Notice how the chiffon split in the front of your dress wraps around to the back? In the original it sits right on the left hip.

    Chances are the measurements are correct if you really analyze the images.

        I got my dress from Landy Bridal and it is too big, too long, and I paid extra for a high grade chiffon and Swaroski rhinestones and I got polyester chiffon and regular beads. I had to pay $300 in alterations to it so I would have a dress to wear to my wedding. I wish I would have bought the real dress, as of right now I am only saving a few hundred. I emailed Landy for a refund (not holding my breath) and let them know they fraudulently sold me a dress. It's one thing for a dress to be too big but to have me pay for a higher quality and bank that I won’t know the difference? I was a professional ballerina so I am very familiar with chiffon qualities; polyester chiffon is heavier and rougher. I am over the stressing and after the alterations the dress will be fine. I had to move flowers around because they put this huge flower on my shoulder (think 80's big). In the pics the dress looks decent because I am holding the back tight so it doesn't sag. At that point I just had to deal with it and not make a big thing of it. I will let you know what Landy says, I wonder if they changed management because everything from them was quite good several months ago.

        Bottom line is its fine it will work. Lucy did get back to me right now and asked for pictures. Will see what she says.

          Well of course Landy sends me best wishes and tells me they used chiffon...even as I tired to explain the high quality is not what I received, and she said they used Swaroski rhinestones...uh no. And they made the dress to my measurements...wonders who's measurements were those? Oh well I got it into alterations everything will be fine. I also had to ask the status of my dress after 30 days and they were like when do you need it? I told them within the 30 days but I have a feeling they had forgotten about my dress.

            I emailed giananar bridal too and told them that I wasn't happy with my dress measurements either. When I went to get it altered the dressmaker measured me and my body hasn't changed really at all since I sent them the measurements but the dress is at least a size too big. She has to take out almost 6", that's not acceptable since I sent them the measurements. They replied and said they checked it against the measurements. I told them to fire whoever said they checked it because it definitely is NOT those measurements!!

            They offered me a measly $20 refund for my trouble or $129 if I return the dress. Well I can't return it. My wedding is a month away so I have to work with what I have. I asked them to refund me more so we'll see what they say.

              TheOneDay.... do you have pics? Now I'm worried because I ordered one that is not in their online store too. I didn't custom make it though. It is an Amy Michelson and is very different than what most girls order (I usually see chiffon a-lines or taffeta trumpets). The original have a very low back with straps criss crossing in the back. The original was made of silk charmeuse, but guininar said they only have thin satin (whatever that is), so I may have a similar experience (but I hope not). I'm so sorry this happened to you. But on here and many other websites they have second hand dresses that are gorgeous (I would have bought mine, but as it is my TTD and my second dress, I didn't want to spend more than $150).

                beautiful dresses ladies! I am anxiously awaiting my proof pics. I hope I don't have any "issues" because I really do not want to spend the $1700 the original dress costs....fingers crossed

                  Question Ladies...I want to order my bridesmaids dresses from lightinthebox.com but I wanted to know if anybody has ordered a plus size dress from them. My sister is a size 22 and I dont want her to feel bad or awkward if everyone can fit their dresses and she cant. So do you know if they big/small or true to (plus)size.

                    Jo - I think your dress is beautiful!!! I wouldn't judge it until you try it on, a low quality picture like that doesn't capture the details.

                      i have fallen in love with a Priscilla of Boston dress, and i was so excited to see that Duosheng has some Priscilla's on it's page. mind isn't there, but is very simple, and i hope they could do it.

                      for those who ordered from Duosheng, which contact did you use?

                      there are emails for retail and wholesale - and i am not too sure which one i want!

                      thanks in advance!
