the dress has been shipped to my house. I was not at home and asked my neighbor to take it for me. I got the box picture. It was packaged very well. I will try the dress on as soon as I come home.
After hours of shopping (online and off) for an affordable prom dress, I ordered this dress custom sized for my daughter- I was quite nervous about the fit since I am a firm believer of trying things on before buying- as you can see from the photo, it fit perfectly and the color is stunning.
I added buttons and loops to hold up the train when needed and that worked well- some of the sequins were loosely sewn on but did not prove to be a problem. All-in-all a terrific dress.
