      Wow that looks great! You definitely got a great deal. I found a dress I want, but can't afford the "real" thing, so I am definitely going to look into this. Thanks for posting! Btw...are you completely happy with the results??

          That is a great dress and it looks wonderful on you! What a deal- big props to you for finding such a nice dress for an unbelievable price, too. I love the corset/lace up detail in the back, and the detailing on the waist is just gorgeous! Congrats- you must be doing a happy dance right about now, eh?

            bholthof - The back looks amazing too!! You did custom measurements right? I want a wider corset, with more of a "V" shape. Like this

            If you laced it like that would it be too big on you? I guess i'm asking if you NEED it that tight for it to fit well? Thanks!

                thanks :)

                Between the time I ordered it and sent my measurements, and actually received the dress I think I lost a couple inches round the middle - so its actually a bit big on me. I do have to lace it that tightly so it will fit. I'm checking to see what alterations will cost.

                If you wanted that V - shape, I'm sure you could request it - or talk to the dressmaker about getting it.

                    Nice job bholthof! I think the corset is incredible! It just gives the dress a little sexyness!

                    I had my dress made in China. I need to try it on again and get some good pictures of it so I can post them and you can see the one I tried on in the U.S. compared to the one I had made here in China. They are very similiar! I need to have my friend lace up my corset tighter though because the tailor that made my dress didn't want to lace it up too tight, not to mention she was 4 feet tall and weighed like 70 lbs. lol

                    I think having a dress custom made is the way to go! You save lots of money and you can take away or add things to your dress! In the U.S. I would have paid $350 and I had it made in China for $70!!! What a deal!

                    Good Luck!
