I fell into a Pinterest black hole and found this beauty.
Now, I’m definitely not looking for a “modest” wedding gown per se but this dress has all of the items I want. Especially 3/4 lace sleeves and a ball gown silhouette with a lace back. Has anyone ever purchased from here? How is their quality?

I have been working in bridal for three years and never heard of them. Thought I might share some similar dresses from legitimate designers that might be worth trying if modest-couture.com does not pan out for you.

BoilerBride101015: I haven’t heard of them, but they do at least have a bricks and mortar retailer (Chatfield’s in Missouri) so that is normally a good sign. They may also be made in the US rather than China, though I can’t quite tell.

Thanks everyone. I actually went on the site and e-mailed the store. Turns out it is a real brick-and-mortar store that decided to also create their own collection. Most of their collection is VERY modest but this one has an option for a sheer lace back and shoulders, which is what I chose. They are also adjusting the sleeves for me and extending the train to chapel length at no extra charge! The dress is supposed to arrive in January.
Never thought I’d find a dress through a Modest shop, considering everything I’ve been trying on up to now has been strapless and mermaid/trumpet!

I’ve been to chatfields and tried on some of the dresses. I’m not very well versed in the dress lingo so I’ll use laymen’s term to describe …
the dresses are generally more conservative and when I tried them on they felt heavy, the fabric are thick and heavier weight. since my wedding is July in Fl I did not buy from there. dresses seemed well made and they even offer “customizable option” e.g. a top from style A and bottom from style B.
Customer service was awesome .
ill be interested in knowing how your dress turns out!

SoStuck: Thanks! I could definitely see them being heavier and hotter since there is so much solid fabric. Based on their other designs I’m suprised this dress has as much sheer lace as it does. My wedding is in October so I’m hoping the weather will be cool enough to stay comfortable.
