I bought my wedding dress online and it was too small (the opposite problem as most).

I've been in her shop several times and each time I'm greeted with open arms. I've also seen her interact with other customers who are given the same treatment. It's no surprise that she has such a positive response, as she really takes the time to get to know each and every person that comes through the door. She also gave me advice -- both personal and professional, explained what needed to be done every step of the way, and answered all my questions. I couldn't be happier with the final result and my dream wedding wouldn't have been complete without Fifi's help. I went back to Fifi after my wedding to get my dress cleaned and I will continue to visit her for my alteration needs! From my experience, she is the BEST tailor in the area and from just a few visits, has quickly become a true friend.

I originally found my dress at House of Brides in the city but wanted to buy my dress from a local shop with a more personal experience. I did some research and found Fifi!

Over the next several months, I received multiple updates from Fifi and her team about the timeline of the dress and my upcoming appointments. At my first fitting, the dress seemed a bit uncomfortable, tight in the wrong places and so Fifi made some notes and at the second fitting, it fit like a glove. She was able to open the arm holes, tighten the dress around the bust, take in the waist all while keeping the beautiful natural form of the dress. My mom, mother in law and sister in law also had their dresses tailored at Fifi's due to the great experience. When I picked up my dress for the final time it was perfect. Thank you Fifi for making my day perfect!

If I could give 10 stars I would! Fifi is absolutely amazing. She is not pushy and she doesn't act like a saleswoman. She is very patient and courteous while you try on the dresses.

I loved almost every dress I tried on and this was after coming from a place where I liked zero of 15. She has real people sizes available to try on and lots of gorgeous off the rack dresses.

I can’t say enough positive things about my experience at Fifi’s. I had just under five months to plan a medium-sized wedding and just like every bride, I wanted to make sure that I had the perfect dress. I had rushed and bought a discount thrift store dress which I quickly... Read More came to regret buying. Filled with dress regret, I came to Fifi’s the February before my May 7th wedding. Not only did Fifi and her assistant help me find a dream wedding gown that I loved, but they were patient with me as I tried on multiple dresses to make sure that I’d found “the one”. I shopped for my dress on my own so it was comforting to have Fifi and her assistant there to assist and offer advice. The dress I ended up picking was a Sophia Tolli dress that had a drop waist, a style that I didn’t even think I could pull off with my petite frame. Had it not been for Fifi’s keen eye, I never would have tried the dress that I ended up picking. Fifi had my dress ready by early April and that included 2 dress fittings. Most bridal salons take over six months to do what Fifi did in less than 3 months! I’d highly recommend Fifi’s to all brides. I had nothing but compliments on my big day regarding how stunning my dress looked:)
