My dress will arrive monday!

Because of this board I ordered my dress from Dressilyme, so I think it's only fair to tell about my experiences. I already left a message in another topic about my dress, but maybe it's more convenient to my a separate topic.


This far I can only say positive things about dressilyme. Before ordering, I had a lot of contact with Paris. She told me exactly what's possible and what's not, so I could make an informed decision. I ordered my dress on oct 29th. After ordering I came in contact with Karen. She also was very kind and clear about everyting. I changed some things after ordering and also added some bracelets and a piece of fabric to my order.


Yesterday I received a message my dress is in transit! The estimated delivery date is monday, I'm so exited! I haven't got any pictures of the actual dress yet (was to late for asking), but I can add some pictures of the dress I ordered, so you can compare when my dress is delivered.

I asked for some changes:


- no flowers on the strap


- the straps at the back meet a little lower (I saw that on another dress)


- there will be some beading around the v-shape of the back (I saw that on another dress)


- a little more ruffling on the buttocks area.


- I asked for a little longer train (is that the right word?)


 


When I receive the dress I will post pictures of it!


PS: I'm from the Netherlands, so my English isn't perfect. I'm sorry!

Hi Frisianbride,


I don't know why but you post didn't appear on my computer until I'd replied on my post :). The dress you picked is fabulous, you will look stunning in it.


Oh its so excitingfor you!!!, I'm still waiting for it to go to transit but karen emailed thursday and said it would be 12 days.


Did Dressily give you the number to track your dress. I can't wait to see it I know your going to look amazing :)

Haha, that's so strange. Sometimes computers just play funny games with you.


I really hope the dress will turn out beautiful. Only one night of sleep away! I received a tracking number and I can follow exactly where the dress is. It's been in Almaty, Kazachstan and it just left Köln in Germany, so it's only a couple of hundred miles away now.


I hope you will receive your dress this week also!

I can reach my first account again, so that's the one I will be using from now on. My dress is in the Netherlands now! So, if everything goes well, they will deliver it today! I adressed it to my parents, so my fiancé will not see it. I'm so exited right now!


My parents will send me a message when they received it, so I will keep my phone close today.

Well, I received my dress! It came in a very small Fedex box. I don't know how they make it fit!


The fabric and the colour is beautiful. The dress didn't fit, but that's my own fault. I measured myself, so I took a risk there. Luckily Dressilyme adds a couple of cm's in the seems on the side, so I can make it a bit wider.


There were a few dissapointments:


- the dress didn't come with fabric buttons and hoops on the back. I asked for it specifically, because I think that's a very beautiful detail on a dress


- the dress had beading on one hip, while I only asked for beading on the v-shape of the back.


- the shape/model of the dress is slightly different from what I expected. I'm not sure if I like it this way, therefore the dress should fit me first, so I'm going to take it to a seamstress.


This is my opinion for now. I can't add pictures now, so that will come later.

Update: Today I tried the dress on another time, and I think I lost a couple of pounds overnight ;), because I could close the zipper! So, a couple of more pictures. I'm a lot more happy about it now, but I still want the buttons, so I hope they will send them to me.

Thanks! I'm very curious about your dress, I will read your topic after I finished this reply.


In your account on dressilyme.com you can send messages. If you want to change your dress choice or colour, send them a message as soon as possible. If they started on your dress, I don't think they will be able to make changes like colour or fabric.


Sadly I didn't receive pictures before they shipped it. Before ordering (on presales) they told me they didn't. You should ask for pictures (again) after ordering, by message. I was to late (they already shipped it) otherwise I could tell them to add the buttons, what they forgot..


Contact was very good. I had all kinds of questions and added some bracelets to my order. No problem at all and the were very quick with responding.

They will send me the buttons when they made them, so that's good news. I hope they will send the buttons soon!


I finally showed the dress to my mother. She didn't know about anything, so it was a big surprise for her. She made some photo's also, so I will show them to you as well.


We made a list of the things that have to be changed:


- add buttons!


- make the skirt of the dress a bit more slim, so it has a more beautiful shape


- make the dress a bit wide on the waist, hips and buttocks so I can sit down


-change the dress a bit around the bust, so it will fit like a glove over there. You don't want some things poppin' out on your big day! ;)They will send me photo 3225406-1They will send me photo 3225406-2They will send me photo 3225406-3They will send me photo 3225406-4

This week I received the buttons and hoops. They look beautiful! Next week I'm going to a bridal shop for the last time and me the decision: Go with the Dressilyme dress or buy a dress from a regular shop. I'm starting to lean to the Dressilyme dress a bit more every day!

Well, I've been to a bridal shop and I decided to buy a dress over there. I tried on a dress that hugged my curves so beautifully I just couldn't resist. And the price was very reasonable as well. I'm still very much in love with the Dressilyme, but it needs a lot of changes and I will not be sure what the result will be after those changes. So, I decided to go with the dress I tried on in the shop. It's this dress:

I probably will sell my Dressilyme dress or maybe I will do a trash the dress shoot with it.
