Standard size fits perfectly!
I purchased this with priority delivery with a little under 6 weeks to my wedding. I'm amazed at how quickly it was made and am in love with the fit and style. I provided initial measurements and the team was thoughtful enough to follow up with any that seemed off - I'm so glad they did! Measurements were finalized on 7/30 and I received my dress on 8/16. I'm so glad I went with East Meets Dress to buy my wedding reception dress and HIGHLY recommend to anyone on the fence.
Absolutely gorgeous dress. Exactly as pictured. Really good stretch in the fabric and nice and light. Measurements of the dress were accurate. Great communication from Jenn—100% recommend!
I was hesitant to buy a dress, such as this one, online due to it being a decent amount of money, and what if it didn't fit? My fears were unnecessary. It's a beautiful dress and it fits like a glove! Not only is it extremely well made, but the detail is amazing! Super glad that I went for it! Would buy another dress from this shop in a heartbeat!
I ordered this from Canada and was so worried it wouldn't arrive in time. Vivian was so kind, never pressured me, and always reassured me it could be done! I'm getting married in less than two weeks and I can already tell I'm going to wish I could wear this for more than just the tea ceremony! The wine colour is gorgeous, the dress feels like absolute quality, you can feel from the embroidery and the seams that it's handmade (and well-made!) and the whole thing fits perfectly to my measurements. So, so excited to wear this on my wedding day!
Bonus: My mom used to be a seamstress and is always criticizing the quality of "clothes these days." She saw this and gave this the nod of approval, which has never happened to me in recent memory.
We were tired of browsing sketchy sites with no customer support so we started EMD.
