azazie raya bridesmaid dress comparison

Expectation: It is exactly what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is pretty good. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I took all of my measurements and subtracted around an inch, (which is slightly smaller than my actual size), and it fits like a glove! View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would keep this Azazie dress!

The quality feels pretty good (the material is akin to a thin curtain with a bit more drape/flow), it has boning along the sides of the chest for support, and I do not need to wear a bra or pasties! The padding is thick and textured enough that nothing shows through. Regarding the fit, I have a 29-inch waist, and I ordered a 28-inch waist. While it does fit, it ALMOST feels too tight. I also wore 3-inch heels with the dress, and the added 3 inches in the ‘Extra Length’ section is too long. I should have put 1 inches instead to achieve floor length.

I received three items in two packages, and the packages came from warehouses in the United States. I was provided a tracking number.

Similar Sites & Analysis

According to Copyleaks (premium), the below plagiarism is detected:

Do I Recommend This Shop?

Based on my experience, they are a legitimate site. I paid for my items, and received them within the estimated time frame.

With that being said, I would shop here again.

The bridesmaid dress is beautiful and of decent quality. The custom measurements I provided seem to be pretty accurate, aside from the ‘Extra Length’ part. According to their measuring guide, they say to add extra length for floor length depending on how tall your shoes are (for example, if you are wearing 2 inches heels, add 2 inches to the Extra Length). This ended up being too long for me, and I had to hem around 1-2 inches (for my 3-inch heels).

It arrived earlier than the time frame they provided, and this is especially important if you are ordering a dress for a wedding that is coming up quickly. In my case, I ordered somewhat last minute and was pleased when it arrived even quicker than I expected. Customer service, from my short interaction with them, was fine. They answered my questions and got back to me within a reasonable time. Overall, I don’t have any notable complaints. Decent quality garments, and prices that don’t cost an arm and a leg? I’m in!

I would also like to point out that while I didn’t take advantage, they offer try-ons (for a small cost) and sample material swatches (free or low cost). So, if you are really trying to maximize efficiency and get what you want, these are great options!

To wrap up this review, regardless of my experience, be sure to read as many customer reviews as possible. If you found this post helpful in your search for Azazie dress reviews, please consider sharing and commenting (via Reddit) below. Have a great day!
