"I fell in love with the Behati style and knew nothing else would compare. I left this very important detail until 6 weeks before the big day however the GLL online stylists were beyond amazing. The girls helped with how to measure my size, offered phone consults to further discuss details and even sent through extra photos of staff wearing the gown so I could see how it fitted on different body types. The gown arrived just in time for the wedding and it was absolutely perfect."

"I saw the dress online and right away I made an appointment to visit the showroom in Shoreditch London. Thankfully, although my wedding was just four months away, the Eve dress was available and in my size. When I tried it on, it fit like a dream come true. I felt beautiful even without losing all the weight I originally wanted. When I arrived at the showroom that day, I wasn’t feeling my best or most confident but once I tried on the dress I felt relaxed, beautiful and confident that I had the best dress for me. I had no doubts and no insecurities in that moment."
