Wedding is not until September but I know the dress will be a hit. I have four months to get rid of my muffin top....I will wear high heels to allow the dress to drape beautifully.
The FedEx shipping said it would arrive in 1 week. With the slow shipping (due to weather and the COVID-19 pandemic shipping delays), the dress took 3 weeks to arrive, with two 1-week stints where the item was just sitting at a shipping facility center. The shipping does not reflect directly on BalticBorn, though. However, the quality of the dress was only substandard. There were fraying seams and loose threads on the dress, which I have heard is an issue with others, as well. Nonetheless, this is one of the best fitting dresses I have had in a while. I am pear-shaped XS/S on top and M/L on bottom. I purchased a size small; the waist fits perfectly and hits at my natural waist and the flowy bottom fits over my hips nicely. The waist ties are at a weird location in respect the waist seam of the dress, and I plan to remove them in the future. The dress is very long, and that is so it can be hemmed to your exact height, which I appreciate. All in all, good dress. Since I know it fits so well, I would consider repurchasing in another color and only when the dress is on sale, even with the quality concerns previously discussed. The original price of $82 is just a little too high, and I purchased my dress when it was on sale for $71. I would definitely consider purchasing the color options that are $50.
The material, quality and elegancy of this dress made me feel so pretty at my friends wedding this past week! Ordering the same one in pink for another wedding next week!
I loved ordering from Baltic Born! I had originally bought another dress and it just wasn't what I needed. The return process was super easy and I bought another dress that ended up being perfect. The dress is a little long on me but fits perfectly otherwise.
Good fit, will need to b hemmed and the color is great
