I wanted a batman themed wedding dress and they went above and beyond. They listened to everything I wanted and made my dream dress. My wedding would not have been perfect without it.

I wish I could give Lora more than five stars, I am a larger woman and was worried about a dress looking good on me. I came to Lora not really knowing what I wanted and she helped me create a dress that I loved! Well 1 month before my wedding I went to lora and told her I wanted to create a more simple elegant dress because the previous one I could no longer afford. She was so patient, kind and welcoming and she pulled it off in just 30 days! Not once did she ever make me feel uncomfortable or like a burden. She actually made me feel like family! My dress turned out beautiful. Before I go anywhere else for formal wear, I’ll be coming to Miamisburg Ohio!

I loved loved loved my wedding dress. I came to Van Lear Custom Couture with a vision and Lori blew me away with the final product. It was so much fun working with her to design and make the perfect dress for me on my wedding day. She helped turn this tomboy into a bride and I am forever grateful

Lora created the wedding dress of my dreams and for that I am forever grateful. Lora was so kind and professional. I loved each and every one of our fittings; such a fun experience to look forward too. She turned my dreams into a reality! If you need ANY work done on clothing or want to make something custom and unique hands down go see Lora at Van Lear! You won’t be disappointed, I sure wasn’t!

Lora is amazing! I could not have imagined a more beautiful dress if I tried. She brought my dream dress to life! She was very easy to work with and made everything so easy for me. From the first moment I walked into her shop to design the dress, to the last fitting and finally taking the dress home, Lora was incredible. I wanted to add on lace sleeves to my dress about three months before the wedding and she made that happen without hesitation. I could not say enough great things about her. Designing a dress with Lora was one of the best decisions I made about the wedding!!!
