I am not a big fan of beading. I asked the seller to remove them around the waist so I could use my own sash to match it.
I strongly recommend this dress and their business. I went with custom order sizes, which worked out well. The dress is really nicely crafted and just as pictured. It was also produced and delivered around five days ahead of schedule, which was fantastic. Well-made, high-quality dress that is really flattering on a bigger size.
