I bought this as my main dress, not a reception dress, and I absolutely love it!! There are soooooo many sparkles on it, it’s not sequinned which can sometimes look tacky but actually has sparkles on the material which I think is really nice and unique! It’s very comfortable too, the way the hips open with a slit is very flattering and forgiving which is ideal as I didn’t want to be stressed leading up to the wedding about how I would look if I happened to be bloated that day! Maxima bridal was so wonderful to deal with and helpful when figuring how out to do measurements from home!! They were also very quick, arrived in less than 2 months!!! I’ll need a few alterations closer to the wedding which is normal, otherwise it’s a perfect fit!! It’s very unique and fashionable while still being a timeless dress. I will keep this for future generations! Thank you Maxima bridal!!
