You need to be certain that this is the dress you want! As with any formal dress, sizing depends on the designer and not all sizes are created equal. So you need to properly measure and size for the particular designer/manufacturer. They also clearly state that there are no returns -- so I can appreciate that it "feels" risky. I actually called them to place the order so that I could secure the last dress in my size. They sent updates all the while and even expedited the shipment, while still being free. Tom was terrific. The dress fits perfectly and I couldn't be more pleased.
