My one-shoulder dress picture

Hi Ladies,


This is what I ordered


Hi Ladies This is photo 1932846-1


and this is the photo they sent me.


Hi Ladies This is photo 1932846-2


It's a pain that they only sent me one picture of the front and without the sash and flower. It looks quite plain like that, right? However, I'm happy with the top of my dress. The problem now is I asked for 4 layers of tulle on the skirt but in the photo, it seems like there is only one. What do you think?


And I think the material of the original dress skirt is organza, not tulle as what they thought, because the skirts look different. I will post more photos when I receive it :)


Updated:


OMG, it's arrived before I could track it on DHL website. My dress came in a box withour any weird smell

And here it is with the white sash

and with the black sash.

the back

It has total 11 bones on the bodice

I didn't expect my dress to be so heavy but it's really is due to all the layers and boning. There're actually 4 layers of extremely thin tulle, 1 thick satin layer, 1 lining, 2 hard net, and lastly another lining layer.


Overall, I really like the dress, but there are two serious problems. The waist and hip fit me comfortably, but the bust is about 2 inches bigger than mine :(. Secondly, the lace is not very good. Look at this, pieces like this appears here and there over lace and I don't know what to to with them :(. Need to ask Dressilyme again.

Anyway, thank you very much, ladies, for sharing your experience. With some more work, I think I will have the dream dress for my wedding. Good luck!

If you asked for 4 layers of tulle and they only have 1, I would have them correct that before they ship the dress. Otherwise you won't be happy with it when you get it.

Wow they did a really nice job! And you're right about the original being organza. It looks a lot smoother than the tulle. At least they can still fix this! The bow/sash is the easy part for them. They probably wanted to show you the most important thing first - the whole dress. I think you'll be very happy with the final product.

They have confirmed that there are 4 layers of tulle and will send it out on 24th and hopefully I would received it by 30th. The tulle skirt doesn't look too bad for me so I'll talke it as it is. No more patience :). It will look better after being cry cleaned and with a mermaid petticoat.

Wow Nu it looks absolutely amazing!  I agree that all it really needs is a mermaid crinny and you should be good to go.  Are you wearing the same sash and flower too?

If they confirmed the tulle, I think you are in good shape. It looks really good. Hope you love it when it arrives.

OMGEEEE!!!  Nu it looks absolutely gorgeous and I can't believe the price!!!  It looks almost identical to the inspiration pic wouldn't you say?  WOW I am really impressed!


Do you think that maybe alterations here could fix the lace issues?  It doesn't look that bad at all.

I really like the black sash! Thanks for updating - looks great on you.


My milly dress was HUGE in the bust area. I had it altered and it fit way better. Great to hear they use so much boning!

I've already tried to wear the dress with some silicone pads or thick bras, nothing worked. Officially need alteration now :).


@2011bride: Dressilyme tailor told me to just cut them off, but I will asked the seamstress to take care of it as well.


@Phannie: The boning make me feel like I'm wearing a corset and it really enhances the shape of the dress, and I think it will be very good for holding strapless dresses too. I can see a big difference from my previous dress which only has 4 bones.

Wow this dress is so pretty! this is the look i am going for but with two straps.  How much was this custom dress? and did the sash come with it? i don't see an option to buy sashes on the website.

This dress is so pretty! I am sorry the lace didn't come out the way you had wanted. :o( Although, the dress is beautiful. I love the style of it, it is very different from the strapless dresses we see commonly.
