This dress arrived in 3 days. Amazing turn around on order. When it arrived detail was amazing. Beads attached by metal on the inside of tulle made it next to impossible for them to fall off, like many other glued on gowns. I am 5'8". I ordered a 12 for hips and had the top half tailored to fit. All I can say is I loved this dress. My granddaughters and attendees at wedding said I looked like a princess. You will not regret this purchase. Fyi you should really have a place for photos in comments and it would sell this dress.....hands down.
