If I could give 10 stars to Leila at Curvy Custom Brides, I would. My biggest fear with my wedding dress was having to change my weight or body to have the dress look the most flattering. Leila is not only incredibly talented, but she makes you...
feel comfortable during an uncomfortable and stressful time. She has so many helpful and creative ideas to make any dress unique to you. She was super easy to contact and was always willing to make you feel as comfortable as possible.
I would like to add that Leila makes completely custom bridal gowns. Had I found Leila and Curvy Custom Brides prior to purchasing my wedding dress, I would have had her help design a custom look for me.
Again, she is incredible and does everything in her power to make sure your wedding dress is what you’ve always dreamed of.

If I could give her 10 stars, I would give 20. I don't even know where to begin to say how amazing Leila and my experience with her was. From the beginning, she validated every fear I had and always, always, always, made me feel so beautiful an...
d seen. She *actually* listened to me when I told her what I wanted from a wedding dress and gave me the literal dress of my dreams. I am forever grateful and will shout from the mountaintops (or theknot or whatever) how incredible working with her is. I cannot conceivably recommend her enough to brides (or grooms!!! or our friends beyond the binary!!)

Finding the perfect wedding dress is a very personal experience- asking a stranger to chop up said wedding dress in hopes of making it fit perfectly is VERY personal. From the moment I met Leila, I knew I was in caring, capable, wonderful hands...
. She took her time at every appointment, no detail was too small, and she made me feel SEEN. It wasn't about the dress, it was about ME in the dress. I'm honestly getting a little emotional just typing out my experience months later, but honestly, I do not think I would have had the confidence I felt on my wedding day if it wasn't for Leila. She sculpted my dress to fit me in ways I never thought possible and refused to settle for "okay". My time spent at my dress fittings were filled with laughter and excitement. It was easy to see the passion she has for her craft as well as the professional level of skill she brings to the table. She even helped me pack my dress to ensure it traveled to our destination wedding perfectly. Don't go to anyone else for you alteration or custom needs!

I am so lucky to have found Leila to tailor my wedding dress! She was so welcoming and inviting right from the get go. You can imagine the level of stress that would ensue when you try on your wedding dress 6 months before the big day to find t...
hat the back zipper is not even close to zipping. You have 2 options at that point, only one was viable for me --scrap it and find a new one (nope, not when this one was my dream dress!) or find an incredibly talented tailor/dress designer to make it work (yep, thankfully I found Leila!). In addition to the challenge of making it fit (& it ended up fitting like a glove), Leila also added a beaded belt that I know took a ton of work. Gorgeous! She also worked with my mom and sister to surprise me with a fabric heart from my late grandmother's dress. Not only did she clearly lay out her plan of action, she made me feel so comfortable about the situation. After the initial consultation I knew I was in good hands. I had 3 fittings, all of which were extremely professional and had me feeling confident. I was an out-of-town bride so Leila was also very flexible and understanding with my schedule. In all, Leila had her hands on a lot of outfits for our wedding -- including my dress, my nephew's ring bearer outfit, my sister's bridesmaid dress, my brother-in-law's usher pants and my dad's jacket! Every. single. article. that had tailoring turned out impeccable. If you're looking for a 'cheap' alteration, this isn't that place, but it shouldn't be - prices were very reasonable for the task, especially since this was the biggest day of my life and I couldn't be happier with the result! All in all, great experience and I highly recommend Leila to anyone who is needing either a custom piece or a wedding dress alteration!

I could not have asked for better service or quality of work from Leila. She was very attentive to my vision for how I wanted my dress to turn out. Attention to detail was on-pointe. She is knowledgeable of how to make a dress really work with...

When I began thinking about what I wanted in a wedding dress last year, I found some dresses I really liked online. Of course, they were either way out of my price range, or they didn’t exist on the market anymore. Also of course, what I wanted...
was pretty specific and difficult to find in bridal stores at the time. I found a couple of things in stores that I probably would have been able to alter to create my desired look, but it would have cost me an insane amount for said alterations. Then, there was one dress that my mom and future mother-in-law really loved that I ALMOST bought at the end of long exhausting day of shopping, but I ended up holding off because I just knew in my heart of hearts that, despite their enthusiasm, it just wasn’t what I had really wanted for myself. So I decided to ask Leila for a consultation to discuss the possibility of having her make my dress from scratch. I wasn’t sure going into it what would come of it. Commissioning a custom made dress just felt so “high dollar” and outside the realm of my simple, “chill bride” wedding. We sat down to chat about my vision for my dress though. I showed her the pictures I’d found online and talked to her about what I liked and didn’t like about those dresses. I also showed her photos of me in the dresses I’d tried on in bridal stores and talked about the pros and cons of those. She listened carefully and asked me lots of very insightful questions, helping me to get closer to the heart of my own vision. Then, she whipped out her sketch paper and started drawing as I continued to tell her my thoughts. And there it was. From her hands and beautiful brain was born my dream dress, staring up at me in grey penciled hues. I knew immediately that it was exactly what I wanted. The price she was able to offer me was only slightly more than what I would have paid after alterations for something similar retail. It was worth it to me to have my ideal dress tailored specifically for my unique body from the start rather than spending thousands on something I only kind of liked and then paying hundreds more to have it ripped apart and rebuilt to suit me. So we began the process of hand selecting fabrics, taking measurements and building the shape of the dress on my body. Through every step of the process I got to feel like my own fashion designer collaborating on a precious runway design—except that my precious runway design was flowy and comfy and had pockets!! Leila made the whole process so easy and fun. She listened well, lended her valuable expertise and never ever tried to sway me from own vision. Instead she helped me realize it. And what came of it was my ideal dress which fit me perfectly in every way. (Leila really is the queen of fit!) I should also mention that Leila also helped me out of a jam with my Bridesmaid skirts which had been ordered online from another vendor. She really saved the day!! Getting married was awesome, but I’ll be real—the process of getting to that day was mostly very stressful and painful for me. Lots of drama and mishaps and other people telling me what they thought I needed to do. Except for my dress. That was the one piece that was all my own. And Leila made that process such an incredible journey for me that I will forever treasure in my memories. Deciding to buy a custom made dress for my wedding day was by far the BEST wedding decision I made—other than choosing to marry my awesome husband of course. :)

Extremely difficult to work with. long story short, my wedding dress was a mess, didn't fit, and with two weeks to go before the wedding, I had to hire someone to rush fix it (costing another almost $900). I never got my wedding dress back unti...
l 11 am before my 2 pm wedding. Fabrics had to be replaced because of the terrible quality. Extremely unprofessional person. When you call her out on her mistakes, she snaps back and doesn't apologize. Does not take responsibility and makes excuses. Even when asking a simple question on her availability she snaps back. So unprofessional! I asked for a partial refund only to cover the costs of alterations I should never have had to get done and she refused (my new seamstress even sent a very nicely worded invoice too with detailed explanations and pictures as proof of the disaster she had to fix). A $2000 custom dress should have fit me like a glove. Instead, I received a dress full of mistakes that didn't fit at all. My new seamstress had to work very hard to fix it. She had to replace the lining and all the red fabric (my wedding dress had a lot of red). Total cost was close to $3000 when I was originally quoted almost half that. New seamstress said it was a miracle I had a dress to wear at all. And still, the lace and beads on the sleeves FELL OFF during my ceremony and reception. Terrible and unprofessional quality. Brides should stay FAR AWAY and save themselves the stress. Weddings are stressful enough, don't add Leila to the mix.

-shamed by a boutique bridal salon, which is very common, seriously, look up the reviews for the ones in Indy. I was very happy that I did this. She has wedding dresses down to a science and has a lot of experience! We chopped off the giant train and made a lot of adjustments to the length, added cups, and took it in on the sides, all without messing up the beading. The bead work is what impressed me about her the most. 4 fittings later, I had the perfect dress. 4 fittings is what a GOOD alternations person should do. Don't try to let them get away with 2. With Leila, I feel like I have found a friend for life.
