I had a fabulous experience with it. Also, what dress are you looking for? Maybe some bees can help.

I love that site!  I was looking for a rather unpopular style of dress, so I ended up purchasing mine from a boutique.  However, I already have it listed on Preowned, since I know I want to sell it after the wedding (this helps me stick to my guns and not get weepy when it happens!).  Coming from a seller’s perspective, it’s legit.  From a buyer’s perspective, I did end up talking to a few brides and even going to try a dress on a few hours away, but it wasn’t the right one.  The selection on the site changes DAILY, and if you’re looking for a popular designer or style it is bound to come up if you have a few months to wait.  

You should be looking for a dress that is actually a decent amount larger than your actual size (within 1 -2 sizes) so that you can alter it down to fit you perfectly when you get it.  This is what bridal salons do… order big in order to have the most material possible to work with during alterations.  Want to show us the dress and listings you’re looking at?

I used the site too and had a good experience!  You can also check tradesy and oncewed for your gown.

I sold my dress and bridal belt on there! It was great, and I had my dress sold within a month!

It’s very secure and easy.  I enjoyed it.

It’s a great site! Basically it just connects people so they can then privately transact on paypal or other secure method which I like because then you aren’t tied down to the site’s shipping policies etc. You can place alerts for specific dresses and they’ll notify you if they receive a listing for it, FYI.
