Help! From experienced DressilyMe shoppers

Does anyone have any tips for me who has used DressilyMe for their dress? I don't know anything about boning or what material to use? I'm going to order dress WWD009J9. But I just want some tips to order the correct dress and to inform them of what direction to go in. Thanks for all of your help!

hi! :)


first, this dress you choose is beautiful!! 


 


this is the original dress: http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?line=d&page=2&style=SD5230    


i often gave the tipp to make a pdf-file with everything into they have to know about the dress, like zoom-pictures, pics of the back, pleatings, ruching etc. that worked best for me too. you can write down every detail so they haven`t any questions in the end. 


for the fabric: i think you should take silk for underneath and a silky chiffon for the overlay of the dress. if you are unsure take some samples from dressilyme. that are about 5 dollars or so.. so you can feel the fabric in your hands. silk is much lighter than satin.. thats why i recommend silk for the underlay. i saw that the belt is a shiny silk and has no chiffon overlay also the straps. the upper heartshaped part looks ruched and that shoudn`t be a problem. i recommend some boning in the upper part, and some breastpads, to hold up and give a nice shape. i also had this. and not to forget: take your messurements by a friend/your mother and give it a little space to it, because you can always make it closer, but not wider.


here are the picture you can use to send them:

also i found a dress like this made from a china supplier just to look at what you can expect:


hi first this dress photo 2927527-2


this looks still really great and i know dressilyme would to a better work! 


if you are still unsure or have questions you can contact me :) will help you till you get your dress!

hi there,


i think you have the time.. i ordered my dress 2 months before my wedding and i got it after 30 days.. so the samples will send out promptly and you will have it in about 5 days or so. its the best way to test their organza as i haven`t experience with that fabric from them. and i woulnd`t take the white, the ivory is not yellowish, you can see it on my photos, its a soft white and i loved it! :)


 


I`m excited for you, this whole experience was really great and if i need any dress in the future i will order from them too! 


I`m there if you need further help :)

Thank you! I've actually ordered! I took all of your advice, and my communication with them has been pretty good.



For the fabric, they told me that they did not offer silk or silky chiffon at this time. So I would have to take the satin for the lining. Also, the shiny material they are using is charmeuse.


 


I'm still very excited to get it. I asked them about photos when the dress was finished, and in a nutshell, I was told they were too busy ;) How did other brides get photos?

you just ask them to get a photo of the finished dress before they send it out. i did so. i didn`t knew that they dont offer silk, because i know a bride who has a silk gown from them.. but this was in the beginning of last year.. so sad they didn`t offer that. have you ordered samples from the fabric?
