Dress is beautiful but way too long. The scalloped lace hem makes shortening difficult. I will have to alter the dress completely by shortening it from the waist and making a belt out of the removed fabric to cover the seam. I hope it will work.
This is my 3rd Tadashi Shoji gown so I do love his dresses and while it's just beautiful, I was a bit disappointed in the quality control with this one. The gold embroidery on one shoulder is unraveled and pulled away from the seam. This was a final purchase so I can't send it back. I'll take it to a local seamstress and have it repaired to wear to my daughter's June 2017 wedding; but it should never have been shipped in that condition.

Cuando llegó era más bomito aún al natural que en las fotos, me queda fenomenal, quizá algo ancho de pecho, las americanas tienen bustos más generosos, pero con un pequeño arreglo se solucionará, es muy largo, tendré que acortarlo un poco, pero ha merecido la pena. Recibido el envío muy rápido, sin duda repetiré.
When it arrived it was even more natural than in the photos, I'm great, maybe a little broad chest, the Americans have more generous busts, but with a small arrangement will be solved, it's very long, I'll have to shorten it a little, but it's well worth it. Received very fast shipping, I will certainly repeat.
Thank you for once again delivering a dress made for real women. The dress is designed to grace every curve, but to also be easily adjusted if your curves are elusive. The bust design allows ample room, but like the rest of the dress, can be easily adapted. The neck line opening is appropriately modest, but not so much as to be Victorian. The dress permits graceful movement; it is elegant, but comfortable, whether seated or dancing. My greatest challenge was the length of the hem because I wear a low heel (a kitten heel) and the hem had to be brought up in the front by 3 inches to avoid tripping. We brought up the front and tapered the rest of the hemline in back to preserve the slight train intended by the design. My second challenge was to fit hips and bust both. I bought a larger size intended to accommodate my hips. The dress arrived larger than expected. Even so, Jenny of Jenny Couture in NYC was able to easily work with this lace to fit this dress to me precisely. I received so many compliments. There is nothing more delightful than a perfect fit. Beautiful is wonderful.

This dress is absolutely beautiful. Its is darker then photo but I would of kept it if the dress fit. A little too tight around the waist and hips and a little big on the top. The dress is extremely long, but worth hemming. I had to return.
I purchased this gown from website photo only because none of the retailers in Manhattan had the item in stock for me to try on. I read the reviews and figured I would need one size smaller as the gown was described as running larger than normal. It arrived and fits wonderfully. The fabric is gorgeous. It is a very comfortable gown that I will be wearing to my stepson's wedding in July 2017. I ordered a fabric swatch to match shoes and purse -- and it arrived quickly. The gown was delivered with a very nice dust bag to keep it clean. I will be sending it to the designer for it to be hemmed as it does run long. It is a great purchase.
I purchased this for my second Wedding in July of this year. The size was a little big and I had to order a smaller size. The length is a little long and I will have to get it hemmed which appears to be a common concern and I was prepared for that.
I was looking for classy and elegant and this dress works amazingly well. When I tried it on and showed it off to my 18 year old son, his comments were "oh Mom, I have to hug you, you look amazing." Needless to say SOLD!!!!
Only complaint I would have would be, I would have liked to try on the silver dress and see how that worked, but it is on back order until only a month before my wedding date.
I ordered this dress for my daughters wedding in Florida. I think the sizing is very generous (normally I buy American size 6/8) and I had to reorder a smaller size 4, which fits me like a glove. Very pleased.
This dress is amazing. I tried on several colors of it, and the mocha (which is more like a deep red wine color) is my favorite (with my skin tone and coloring, etc...). It's maybe the most flattering garment I've ever tried on. And the detail is stunning. Love it. One caveat: I'm 5'1" and the dress is sooooo long. I expect this when shopping for full length gowns, but there is no amount of heel that will help my cause. That's why local seamstresses exist! :)
Bought magenta color, very beautifully made. My daughter is doing black bridesmaid dresses with magenta accents, thru out wedding. Perfect color for mob to wear with the magenta color scheme. Fits a true size. I am a 4-6 and I ordered size six perfect fit. No cups sewn in dress, with a strapless bra it worked perfectly in the back. You don't see the back bra. Nice lace. I tried many long gowns on at macys and they r not true to size. But you pay for what u get. I am 135 5'4" size 6 worked very well.
This was a beautiful gown just the wrong size and wrong color. On the website, it shows as a antique gold however, when I received it, it was golden. More of a yellow. The lining was a nude. I fluctuate from a 14 to 16 depending on the designer. This is truer to size. The length of the dress was an inch longer that I expected, which was okay. Unfortunately, I could not show this dress off. I returned it. The customer service representative, Stephanie, was amazingly understanding and was willing to assist me with a smaller size and offered a refund. I'm still awaiting my refund. It's been 2 weeks. I would recommend this designer. It's difficult to have high expectations when ordering online when color, other than black or blue, is a thing to consider.
I cannot explain how absolutely stunning this gown is. I ordered it to wear to my brother-in-law's new year's eve wedding and I literally can't wait to wear it! It is super comfortable, extremely flattering, and has just enough wow factor without being beaded! Perfect! The ONLY flaw I can find it that it is long....really long. I am 5'7 and even with heels I will need to get it hemmed - maybe just a 1/4 inch, but I still need it. And I'm kinda worried about the cost associated with it because the lace will have to be cut and then reattached. Hopefully it won't be too much....But again, it is WELL worth the cost! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!! Yet another amazing gown to fill my closet from this super talented designer!
I started searching for the perfect Mother of the Groom gown in April for my youngest son's October wedding at a winery in Northern California and a requirement was that it had to have lace since I wore lace gowns for my other 2 children's weddings. I fell in love with the hot pink version of this gown but the color didn't seem right for a fall wedding. I decided on a different gown from another vendor but my mind kept going back to this stunning gown. It was like Christmas morning when I revisited your site in mid-August and found that you offered the same gown in the mocha color - I honestly jumped up for joy and immediately ordered it! The gold shimmer on the embroidery was absolutely stunning and added to the elegance! I'm 5 ft. 3 inches, 115 pounds and ordered a size 2. Except for having the length altered it was perfect! So happy with my purchase and as you can see by the attached photo, the Mother of the Bride is standing in the background wearing another stunning Tadashi gown! I felt beautiful and am a Tadashi fan for life!
I saw this dress on line and knew this was the dress for me for my son's wedding. I am not only the mother of the groom, but I am marrying them! So I needed a knockout dress, and this is it. It is super comfortable and elegant. It is quite long, and can't be hemmed, so I need to look for the right shoes.
After visiting 6 bridal shops, I have chosen this dress for my upcoming wedding. It fits perfectly, needs no alterations and is perfect for my day wedding. It is beautiful and has the look of a much more expensive gown!
I ordered this dress, and another, for my son's wedding (in May in Charleston SC). It's absolutely stunning (if I may say so myself:). My husband liked this one better. It fits perfectly (although I usually wear a 6 or 8 in other dressmakers) and won't even need length alterations.
