Fit and Sizing
When taking measurements for this dress, we recommend paying attention to bust and rib cage measurements.
Please note that the embroidered lace bodices are not stretchy. We are unable to order additional fabric, so please order with enough room in the bodice.
Hem Melanie after the wedding for a fun addition to your wardrobe!
Fabric and Care
Melanie is made from a soft chiffon fabric which is comfortable to wear and similar in quality to silk, but much easier to clean and care for. The embroidered bodice is also surprisingly easy to care for, and requires no special cleaning. This dress can be dry cleaned, but can also be washed regularly at home on a delicate cycle. Best of all, the exceptional quality of the chiffon means Melanie will hold up over multiple washes so you can make the most of your dress.
The bodice fit of the dress was as expected, based on the measurements. The top came with iridescent jewels, which doesn’t look like it would based on the pictures. The skirt is very full and long. Overall, the price was fair.
Cute, but not what I expected.
I really like this dress. It's beautiful! But the only problem I have is the lace in the back. I didn't realize they were separate pieces and that I would have to hook them onto a loop inside the dress. It makes it difficult to put on, and it would always fall off.
This dress is gorgeous and very flattering!!
Won’t stay zipped
The dress is true to the photo and good structure/fabric, However my dress (as well as other bridesmaids) had half of the back clasp missing and the zipper doesn’t stay up. We had to rig our dresses for the wedding to stay zipped and closed. Not ideal when you’re spending $150+ for a dress.
The shipment was faster than expected! The fit was great! Really long, but that can easily get taken up. The color, blush, was not what was expected. The only thing is the color of the dress. It’s Almost like a nude pale dusty pink color, the pictures seemed to be more of a brighter light pink.
