Andrea pressed and steamed my wedding dress--I had to take it on the airplane and it was quite wrinkled when I arrived in Portland. But, Andrea had it wrinkle free and looking great right on time. She even took a few stains out of the hem for me and fixed a small, but noticeable wrinkle in the lining of the dress near the bust, all at no additional cost! She was very friendly and polite. The studio was cute, clean, and organized. She had the dress hanging up for me to see before she packaged it up, which I thought was a nice touch. She also had a special way she folded and then pinned the skirt and train to keep it from re-wrinkling when I took it to the wedding venue. I was very pleased with my experience.

I brought my davids bridal wedding dress into Bridal Loft and the team was amazing. They took my vision and brought it to life. My dress was a simple flare to begin with and they transformed it into a mermaid style which is what I envisioned for a beach wedding. Very pleased with their work

I used The Bridal Loft/Custom Fit 2 You for my bridal alterations. I was fortunate enough that my wedding dress didn't need any other alterations other than a bustle. I still wanted to find someone that other people recommended though; after all, I didn't just want anyone to put pins and needles into my beloved gown. Leialoha Kaula was who I emailed back and forth with my many questions and she was very helpful. She explained the different types of bustles and which she thought were possible for my dress. I ended up getting a French bustle with hooks; something simple and natural looking that didn't fall out during my reception.

The location was a little difficult to find. Even though they have a hand drawn map on their website, I didn't realize it was on the other side of the Standard Dairy Building and there were no signs on MLK that indicated that. After driving back and forth past it a few times, my Matron of Honor and I finally figured it out. Once we were on the correct side of the building, we had to be buzzed into the space, which I liked because the alterations business is upstairs, with no one watching the downstairs area. Once inside, the space was very professional yet serene, offering cubby holes to put your shoes into. Upstairs was a loft, with a small kitchen and table for discussions and a carpeted area with mirrors and accessories for bridal viewing. There was even a room, filled with other dresses, to change in.

The experience was great - Lei was very helpful in making sure to explain exactly how they were going to bustle my dress and made sure my Matron of Honor knew what she'd have to do. Time flew for me, since that was all I needed, and even allowed for my Matron of Honor to consult about alterations on her bridesmaid dress. The best part was their price - the bustle came in under budget, compared to other alterations places I had called and compared them with. Fantastic!

These ladies are the best in the business!! I was very nervous when I was selecting where to take my wedding dress to be altered for obvious reasons. I definitely made the right choice by selecting Lei at CustomFit2U. They did an amazing job!! Plus Lei and Andrea are great ladies that made the whole experience really fun. I also received my viel and a flower from Andrea with August Veils. She did an amazing job and it really added a lot. If you are looking for someone for alterations or a Veil, I STRONGLY recommend Andrea (August Veils) and Lei (Custom Fit ToYou) since they are very detail oriented and do an amazing job!

I walked in to The Bridal Loft admittedly underwhelmed with my dress. I had LOVED it when I found it, but it had been three months since it had arrived and I’d tried it on only once – to find that it was about two sizes too big and a foot too long. I wasn’t excited.

Kim took charge and from the first appointment. She placed a few key pins and let me go. Simple. Easy. My next appointment was eye opening and emotional. I remembered why I loved my dress! I could see the shape of it! It was flattering! She made me excited again.

Everything was so easy and I felt always in good hands with Kim. Her no-nonsense approach and ease with her skill made me feel safe with the most beautiful dress in the world. :)

I loved how I looked, I only wish I could have gotten a better price. I think in the end it was worth it, but I would shop around and find the best deal.

They did the alterations to my wedding gown. It was on time and looked wonderfull. I had straps and I think they could of done a better job of fixing them. They kept falling of when I was dancing. Other then that everything was good. They have a very clean business setting and their own parking.

The women at Bridal Loft were a lot a fun to work with and did a great job with my dress. I had the body taken in, the length shortened, a lace sash added, and cups sewn in. They handled my last minute weight change with ease! Highly recommended!
