- Wedding: October 2011
Today i received my Landy Bridal dress. While i was researching the net, i wanted to see as much pictures of the real dresses as possible so here is my own contribution for other brides who might want to order their dress online.
First the original dress: Maggie Sottero – Natalie
Here the pictures Landy send me:
Close up bust:
How is the dress?
Well it came in this small package, . So you know it has to be wrinkled! I need to get it to a drycleaner and smooth it all out. Didn’t keep me from trying in on though… !!
Anyways, i like my dress! I tried the real Maggie in the shops so i know the difference. This dress is a bit heavier than the original one. The dress has boning which supports even my heavy bust very well. I did wear a bra underneath but i think i won’t need one. The material is fine, there is this silky (tafetta?) underlayer which i love!! Looks very good and feels very nice. The top layer is organza with cut out lace on it. If would have liked it more if the top later would be something like a tule fabric, organza isn’t my favorite but it can do. I like the lace stitched on the organza, but the beading doesn’t look that good from close. But that doesn’t matter all too much for me, from a far and on pictures i think it looks great!The dress is a wee bit too long for me, even with my heels on. The same heels i wore when got measured. I think i might get some higher heels or make my dress bigger with a hoop or something. I don’t know yet…. have to figure something out.
Ok time for some pictures. Sorry that i blurred out my home and my head, i’m not that paranoid but it was just… well.. i wasn’t ready for pics! lol! Ok here comes:
Close up bust: – I think the bust looks a bit odd here. Doesn’t seem to go in a straight line. I hope it can be fixed when taken to a drycleaner. Also i wasn’t laced up very well.
And yet more:
Inside of the dress: It is well boned and the dress feels firm.
My cat likes my dress:
From the back: I’m not very happy how it looks from the back. I need to get laced up better. I’ll post pictures when it’s done properly.
Ok so explosion of pictures. If someone wants to know anything, please let me know. I know how i wanted people’s own pictures when i was browsing the web!!
So everything together…
Service of Landy Bridal: I was helped by Chris and he/she was very fast with responding. I had some question along the way, but he/she didn’t seem to be irritated or annoyed by it. I was suppose to get the pictures before the dress was shipped, but unfortunately that got delayed because the photographer went home earlier and didn’t gave Chris the pictures. I got them a day after my dress was send. No problem, because thankfully the dress was what i ordered.
Quality of the dress: The quality is good. Especially the silky underlayer which i think is tafetta?! Not sure. But that looks great! If you really care about beading you could ask them to show the beads before they make the dress. It may not be what you like. The lace itself is very good so that’s not a big issue. The measurements were spot on except for the lenght of the dress, it is a bit too long for me. But we’ll fix that.
I also received this thingy to put around your arms. I didn’t order it, it just came with the dress. This fabric is lovely and i would loved that to be the top layer! 🙂
Good luck everyone! 🙂 Hope my posting will be helpfull..
