The dress was bought as my wedding dress and I wouldn't say it is disappointing, but it is definitely not as great as pictured. The size is bigger then announced, but that is written on the web, so that is ok. My biggest issue is with the collar. It is very prominent, not by far as subtle as in the photo. I also don't like the little stones stuck on it (it looks tacky), it is also not well pictured how it looks. I will have to replace the collar completely. The laser cut neoprene is a good idea, but you can see the burns after the laser on the dress, the hole edges are often darker then the material from the heat - it is a detail, but I am a perfectionist and for this price I expect better then average. So overall I will very much think twice before purchasing another Tadashi gown, especially as they make it very hard to return the dress from a non US country.
