    Wedding dress

    I love this dress, I'm not pleased with the quality, and it was to small. So not sure if I want to return for a M or just return!

      100% satisfied with this beautiful dress. The delivery date was also spot on, so no long waits even to New Zealand.

        I have just finished trying on this dress I purchased for my sons' wedding in December, here in New Zealand. It is a perfect fit and the dress is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you Nataya for catering to the Plus size women. I feel feminine again.

          The dress came on time, fit and received good reviews from Downton Abbey party goers, who enjoyed a good time dressed for the occasion.

              Perfect for a Downton Abbey Soirée

              I ordered this lovely dress on. Monday and received it very quickly! Bert at customer service is excellent and extremely helpful! I am between a size 6 and 8 so ordered the M and it is fine but the S probably would work as well. I love the dress and look forward to wearing it!

              Very happy!

              I ordered this dress on Monday and received on Wednesday the same week! I live in Maine and it was shipped from California. I spoke with Bert at customer service and told home I ordered it for a Downton Abbey party he was so wonderful he took care of it immediately. I ordered the Medium in US it looks lovely but I probably should have ordered the Small as I am size 8 but the M is a larger 8 for me but it still looks beautiful!

              I thought the dress looked beautiful online, but was disappointed when it arrived. I ordered a Large (although I am only 5'3" and 135 lbs) so I could have it tailored to me, but the large was actually too small. The material wasn't as nice as I had expected and had a chemical odor to it. Sadly, I will have to return the dress and look for another for my daughter's wedding.

              The dress arrived quickly. Looks very nice but the nylon tulle was very flimsy and was badly plucked in 2 places - not sure what I can do.

              It's lovely...

              I bought this to wear to my daughters wedding but even though it is beautiful, it's not quite special enough for this special occasion. I will keep it and wear it to other functions, but sadly not to my daughter's wedding.

              Beautiful dress. It's a bit longer than I anticipated but wasn't a problem with heels. Customer service (Chat With Us) was fabulous! Placed my order on Sunday and it was at my front porch on Thursday.

It fits perfectly, is light as a feather and looks great. I am very pleased with my purchase and the customer service.

              Love it! It's just perfect and looks better in real life than on the picture.
              Particularly like the fact that it's a bit different from all the mainstream dresses you come across.
              I love just looking at it in my wardrobe! Keeping it for a special day in September.

              Downton Abbey Ruby Gown

              Perfect fit. Great color, and true to description. Very Well made. I am only 5 feet tall so it is a little too long on me.
              I will have to wear shoes with a higher heel than I had planned.

                It looks stunning. I'm a bit scared to order in case I get the size wrong I am usually Australian size 14 I hate things tight fitting. I want it ready to go for any wedding I may be invited to :-) Please explain the actual size and feel. Thank you so much. I am only 5'2" as well. I love ankle length,

                    I purchased this dress for my son's wedding yesterday! It is a beautiful dress and very comfortable to wear. Even one of the hotel staff stopped me and told me how lovely it was. I wore it with pale pink jacket hat and shoes and had many compliments.

                                Very nice dress. One thing you could add to the information is the lenght of the dresses. I'm not very tall and it is a little too long for me. It works but I'd rather have it a little shorter and it's a bit difficult to change the lenght as there is lace at the bottom.

                                  Dress was very cheaply made. Definitely not worth 250.00. Cotton lining did not match the lace overlay. Would not order this dress or from this designer again.

                                  The gown is quite lovely and suitable for the occasion. I am to be a mother of the groom. It is a perfect fit all around; and I love how feminine and soft it appears. I purchased XL according to how some reviews spoke of the sizing. I am happy with my purchase. My only complaint is how long it took to arrive, but that is only because it had to be shipped to another country after it was delivered to my mailing address in the U.S.A.

                                  Downtown Abbey dress

                                  The dress was gorgeous! The color, style, quality were all top notch. I ordered a M. and I should have ordered a L. It's pretty true to size. Customer service is very good too.

                                      Wore it to my nephew's wedding on a damp November day. Had loads of comments about how beautiful it was from all my other young nieces...so a very good buy...thank you :-)

                                      I ordered Monday morning and delivery to New Zealand was completed Thursday afternoon, very impressive. Using the size guide enabled me to order the right size - the dress fits perfectly. Its comfortable, the workmanship is beautiful. Looking forward to being the Mother of the Bride in this stunning dress

                                      This dress is beautiful, but the color seems more plum than burgundy. I generally wear a size 10 but I ordered a large and must have it taken up and in which will be very expensive due to the multiple layers. The lace is exquisite and I think it will be lovely for the Downton Abbey party I will be attending. I'd like to send it back and exchange for a medium, but don't want to pay shipping twice again.

                                        Beautiful!

                                        Love this beautiful dress! I bought it for my daughter's wedding in January (Australian summer) and can't wait to wear it. Beautiful embroidery and a lovely fall. I normally wear size 14/16 and ordered an XL. It's slightly too big and perhaps the L would have been a better fit but the dress is easily worn with a loose fit.

                                        Such a lovely dress!

                                        I am very happy with my purchase - it is every bit as lovely as it appears on the website. The cut is a little smaller than I expected but I have a month to lose a kilo or two before the wedding I intend wearing this dress for.

                                          Bridesmaid Dress

                                          Absolutely love this dress, I am a uk size 10 and 5'4 in height, I got a Medium and it fits perfectly no alterations needed. My wedding dress is vintage so needed bridesmaid dresses to match. I ordered on a Monday and was delivered to Ireland on the Thursday morning, great service, good quality fabric, very well made and embroidery is of a high quality. I am now going to buy another dress for the following day party! Our wedding is in December. I would have no problem in recommending this dress and company. Hope this helps with your decision making...

                                          Mother of the Groom

                                          I absolutely love this dress! It has a side zipper in it. For ease in getting on and off. It's made in 2 layers, the under cotton voile slip is separate from the tulle outer-dress. I love that! I purchased this gown in 1X, and now will be exchanging it for an XL. I'm 5'4" tall, my bust 43" waist 35" and hips 43". When standing bare footed, the front of the dress is above my ankles and the back swipes the floor.
                                          I'm a professional seamstress by trade.
                                          The construction of this dress is exquisite. It is very well made. The fabric used is a high quality tulle and cotton voile. The soutache embroidery work is exceptional. I don't mind paying the price for a high quality dress.

                                            A beautiful dress & very happy with my purchase. My only negative comment would be it's a small medium & I would have liked it just a little looser, had I not been so far away I would have exchanged it. But I still look forward to wearing it in April to my daughter's wedding.

                                            Downton Abbey Tea Party Gown in Ruby by Nataya

                                            Tulle and soutache embroidery on the overlay of the cotton voile give it an airy look that resembles the silhouettes of the Downton Abbey female protagonists. The Edwardian era classic embroidery and the light fabrics combine with the empire waist to make this tea party gown ideal for high tea, tea party weddings and castle garden weddings.

                                            3/4 Sleeve Length: Three quarter length sleeves stop halfway between the wrist and elbow, a stylish mix of both long and short sleeves. They are ideal for special occasions and give off a classy vibe, especially for more mature women.

                                            Scoop Neck: Scoop necks form parabolic necklines for clothing, accentuating the wearer's collarbones and shoulder lines in chic manner. Scoop necks can be stylishly worn for many occasions, from casual to formal.

                                            Tea Length: Tea length dresses stop a few inches above the ankles, perfect for any sophisticated, modern woman who wants to show off the right amount of leg. They're not overly formal, but still effortlessly elegant, perfect for casual weddings and get-togethers.

                                            Empire Waist: The empire waist emerged as a part of neoclassical fashion in an attempt to emulate the looks from Greco-Roman art during the late 18th century. Today, it is one of the most flattering fits for dresses, as it not only creates an hourglass form for the body, but also elongates legs.

                                            Victorian Period: The Victorian Period reigned from 1837 to 1901. Due to the industrial revolution at that time, clothing was made quicker and cheaper than ever, which allowed for lace and floral designs to become common. These dresses had visibly distinct bodices, similar to the empire waist fit today, and low necklines for formal occasions. Skirts were also cut narrower to produce a slim frame. A reproduction dress from that period needs to incorporate the above features.

                                            1920's Period: The flapper style is iconic of the 1920s. Flapper dresses were straight cut and loose, they did not hug the curvature of the body. They also had lower waistlines to promote a "boyish" look. Dresses usually stopped at the calf, similar to tea length dresses. A reproduction of a dress from that period would need to encompass the features named above.

                                            Downton Abbey: Downton Abbey is a British period drama set at the end of the Edwardian Era, the early 1900s. The show focuses on an aristocratic family during the reign of King George V. At this period of time, waistlines were raised to an empire fit. Embroidery was also very prevalent in designs. Layering the skirts of dresses with embroidered or lace fabrics also grew into fashion. Put together, these elements would make a dress that accurately represents the late Edwardian Era.
