Beautiful dress! I ended up needing to get the hips taken in for a tighter fit, but the $50 tailoring refund they offer pretty much covered most of the alteration costs :). Can’t wait to wear it for part of my wedding!
I picked a ready to ship dress for my courthouse wedding two weeks before I planned on getting married and it fit perfectly. I really appreciated them asking my specific measurements after I had ordered to make sure that I had ordered the correct size. It was beautiful and surprisingly very comfortable!
This dress is beautiful and the details are stunning. The darker red flower details are well thought out and tasteful. The see through side panels are just sexy enough. The wine red color is a winner with Asian skin tones and photographs beautifully. This is a tasteful dress. You don’t have to worry about shocking gold sequins in case you’re a bit shy. Remember not to iron the dress on a high setting!
A big thank for this dress which I received very quickly. It was exactly the size of my daughter, there was no touching up! Only downside the customs fees in France but I have no regrets, my daughter was beautiful in this dress for her wedding!
I was burned by a bespoke cheongsam purchase online from a different vendor and was nervous about trying again here. Since timing was a bit tight, I opted to go for standard sizing in XS. I was reassured by the follow up email that East Meets Dress sent to verify my measurements to make sure I had the right size and when the dress came, it fit even better than the "bespoke" dress I had purchased from that first shop! Photos don't do the dress justice, the color and material are both beautiful and I appreciated the slight stretch which made it so much more comfortable. Super happy I took the plunge and can't wait to wear it to my Chinese wedding banquet in November.
We were tired of browsing sketchy sites with no customer support so we started EMD.
