@mrsmurraytobe – Do you mind me asking how tall are you? I’ve had this whole paranoia about the dress bodice being too long for me and yapped about it endlessly on here before ๐Ÿ™‚ It fits you PERFECT so I was just curious. It was hard to tell for me how the real dress is going to look like because the sample was 3 sizes too big and super long.

Thanks for the info. I had other Bees reassure me of the same thing but I just had to ask again since it looked so perfect on you. I was hoping you weren’t going to say you were 6 feet tall ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m 5’3″ and I custom ordered mine with the bodice shortened by 1.5″, so hopefully it will be just right.

I am considering two different Lazaro dresses. The first dress is 3819 (same dress as mrsmurraytobe – except in white, not ivory). The bridal store offered me the sample of this dress for a great price, but it is a size 8 and I am 5′ 3.5″ and 113 lbs (I would need a size 2 or 4). But she assured me that their professional alterations department will make the dress perfect. This is a very classy bridal store with a great reputation and although I’m nervous about the alterations, they will likely do a great job.

The second dress is Lazaro 3003 (very similar to meliss) except that it is a more fitted trumpet (there is no horizontal line breaking the dress up/ it is very fitted and flares only at the very bottom). For the exact same price I would be able to get this dress brand new, ordered in my size, and in my preferred color (ivory).

LZ 3819 is a dream dress. It really feels like a wedding dress. I love the embroidering and they are offering a great deal for the sample (which is in great condition). I am concerned that it is in white (the detail isn’t quite as obvious as mrsmurraytob‘s ivory dress), it is way too big & needs a lot of alterations, and that the horizontal cut off where the dress flares cuts me in half)

With LZ 3003, I love the sweetheart neckline (what I’ve always wanted), lean fit without any cutoffs (this is more flattering for my “short” physique), ivory color option, and option to have a new dress with design LZ 3003.

It’s so hard to decide, especially when every sample I try on is way too big so I can’t really see what the dress will look like! I’m going back this Saturday and I’ll post some pictures after that appointment (if they let me take pictures!)

So I’m questioning: sample versus new (for same exact price), white vs ivory, embroidering I love vs embroidering that I really like, fit that I like (but am nervous about and question) vs fit that is very flattering, and neckline that I really like vs neckline that I love! (I know that’s a lot!)

So I’m open to any advice, comments, and suggestions. Thanks for any help! ๐Ÿ™‚

I love love looove that dress. I found the picture in a magazine and knew it was love! But, the dress shop wouldn’t let me try it on because it was out of my budget and I was in danger of buying it, lol! I fell in love with a Henry Roth instead, and i’m happy/

@beachybride – I don’t have much input as they’re quiet different silhouettes and it ultimately comes down to your taste…Personally I preferred the embroidery on 3819 like you, but the sweetheart neck on 3002/3003. I’d only seen 3819 in pink floral when I was shopping, if I’d seen it in white or ivory I might’ve gone for that instead. I also was looking for a full skirt (in fact a ballgown but I settled for a trumpet) so 3003 was not an option for me.

I ordered my dress in white and would really love to see pics of what it looks like if you decide to buy the white sample! I don’t care for the ivory color of Lazaro too much, especially on the 3002/3003 it was too creamy for me. Finally I don’t think the size 8 would be a problem to alter. I’m 5’3″, 110 lbs and size 2/4; and I fit into a size 6 in the Lazaro chart.

Keep us updated on what you decide, and please post pics ๐Ÿ™‚

@meliss- Good point about the ivory being creamy. I’m getting married on the beach and I’m just concerned that white may be too bright in the sun and the details of the dress may be lost. But it is true that white Lazaro dresses aren’t an extremely bright white. Because Lazaro dresses are made of true silk, the white isn’t as bright as other fabrics. I will make my decision on color by the end of April. I’m posting a picture of the 3819 in white so that you can see the color. I don’t have any pics of 3003 now, but if I get some this weekend then I’ll be sure to post them. I hope this helps!

Thanks for the pic. When you get pics of both maybe you can make another thread/poll and ask for opinions from the hive?

By the way 3819 looks STUNNING on you! No need to have any worries about the fit, and I think the embroidery shows beautifully even in an ameteur camera flash photo.

Just saw this forum!  I also ordered 3002 in white and am really anxious to see what it looks like.  So if anyone has any pictures of 3002 or 3003 in white, please share them!
