- I bought this dress for a 1940s party so that I could go as Rita Hayworth. The dress looks exactly as advertised on the website, is well made and was sent promptly. It is a fabulous dress and very flattering. There is a high split as in the original Gilda dress but the material falls well so you don't feel too exposed. The sizing is good although I am not sure I will be able to eat pudding at the party!
Gorgeous Dress, Workmanship, and Amazing Customer Service
- more than 3 year(s)
- This dress is amazing. Be careful though, because it is not like regular dresses in that the sizes are approximate and fluid. I am regularly a size 4 in dresses, but I think I should have ordered up a size, because it doesn't zip up all the way. So be careful of that.
Nonetheless, this dress looks like gorgeous. The fabric is lovely, and the quality of the workmanship is top notch. TheCelebrityDresses' customer service is FANTASTIC as well. They are extremely accommodating. I highly recommend this; just make sure of the size.

We only use high-quality fabric. The satin fabric we use has softer touch, thicker texture and more beautiful gloss compared with normal material.
Elastic Fish Bones
We use high-density fish-bones which are firm and elastic，creating a flattering shape. Poor-quality wedding dresses come with no fish bones and bad shape.
Our skin-friendly dresses are lined in the skirt by evenly consistent needle code. Totally-enclosed overlock looks clean and elegant. The skirts of poor-quality dresses are not lined inside and are easily get worn out.
Invisible zippers require complicated work and skill. We use YKK zippers imported from Japan. Low quality dresses come with non-branded zippers that are exposed and easily broken.
Low Quality Zipper
Is the taffeta as shiny as the water-satin used for the original gown? I always thought taffeta was matt? (and a rather a stiff fabric by comparison -which doesn't 'flow' like satin). Also, do I just add my measurements at the checkout point?
Posted byon Friday, January 8, 2016Dear Hayley, Taffeta will be shiny.For the best fit please select custom size and provide us your measurements. You can also select a standard size if you are sure about your measurements. It is strongly recommended that you have some one else preferably a professional take your measurements. Please be sure to follow our measuring guide at http://www.thecelebritydresses.com/html/All-You-Need-To-Know.html?tab=3. Please don't just rely on your normal experience of sizes as different designers may have different standards of sizes. You can add more specific measurements and special request in your order comment at the last step checking out before making payment.

I can't see a picture of the actual dress you are selling do you have one? It says the material is taffeta is that correct? Or is it satin? Thank you Diana
Posted byon Thursday, October 8, 2015Dear Diana, I am sorry we haven't taken any pictures of this dress yet as this dress is made from scratch after ordering and the production team is dispatched from us. This dress is made out of taffeta. Satin fabric is too thick for this dress. Thanks for contacting us.
I've ordered tow of these dresses and love both. Can it be made in a stretch matte satin with heavy boning and 2" taller for coverage in the bustling?
