As a plus-sized woman, I had my reservations about how my wedding gown would fit. I had a black-tie wedding, so I knew I had to have an amazing gown. I am so grateful that I found Mina. I brought my wedding gown to her for hemming and a bustle. When Mina reviewed my gown, she pointed out other details that I am sure a "normal" tailor would have missed. She made it so that I would be 100% comfortable in my gown all day, and even allowed me to go sans support since she was tailoring it to my exact body. It was truly amazing. Mina allowed me to really feel beautiful in my gown, rather than self conscious. My (couture) photographer was also so in awe of the great fit of my gown, that we did additional photos of just me, the gown, and the veil. I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a great fitting gown, and proper veil. I was going to have a waist length veil originally, but with Mina's knowledgeable guidance of couture and sincere advice, I had the most stunning veil to go along with my gown. I am so happy I listened to her - it paid off tremendously. I truly do not understand the negative feedback - mainly because most of these people never actually went to Mina so they cannot really speak to the wonderful experience. She is truly kind and really cares that her brides look and FEEL amazing. Everything is VERY clear on her website as to how she works, and as a business owner myself, I completely understand her guidelines. I'm blessed our paths crossed.

I love the fact that they are very organized and operate very modernly! No awkward phone calls in the middle of a meeting! I had only one trip to Los Angeles before my wedding; I requested an appointment online and shortly after I received their email. They not only considered my schedule, but they also scheduled me after hours for another fitting during my stay for after they started the alterations. Mina is really perfectionist and cares about your dress more than you do! When I went back, the dress looked perfect to me, but she pointed to a couple tweaks and insisted on them. When I went back to picked up, the dress looked as if it was custom-made for me. She is not cheap, but worth every penny! I am glad that by cutting only $14 from each table, I was able to stay within the budget and get the best alterations possible. I also got my tiara and veil from them, very unique and elegant, didn't see anything like them elsewhere.
