got my dress. doesn't fit, poor material
Okay I just got my dress, it took a month to get here, and though the dress is okay I won’t be wearing it at my wedding. The dress is strapless with organza layers for the skirt. Overall the craftsmanship is decent. There’s a good amount of boning and the design is mostly similar to the photo though the skirt is way too poufy. But the quality of the organza is not that great. It feels stiff not soft and flowy like organza dresses I’ve tried on. As well even though I had my measurements taken by a professional seamstress the bust is too big which is an easy fix, but the waist, hips and thighs are way too tight. It’s a mermaid dress so I can’t sit in it comfortably. So even if I wanted to wear it I don’t know if a seamstress could let it out enough.
So because of the quality of material and fit I don’t feel beautiful in it. It’s an okay dress but okay isn’t good enough for my wedding day. The thing I’ve learned about the experience is that you need to “feel” good in your wedding dress. So if you order a dress online like this there is no way you will know how you feel in it. Even though the dress wasn’t a huge amount of money it is still $180 I could’ve put towards something else.
Overall I gave it a try and would not recommend going through the route of ordering a dress from China. I know some ladies here have had good luck but from my experience the risk is not worth it. i've emailed them to tell them the dress doesn't fit and if there is any refund i can get but they haven't responded. i'm not surprised. i will donate the dress to charity or try to sell it.
