I went.  We arrived at 630 and we were so far back in line that I thought we’d never get a dress, we’d go get breakfast and come back in a few hours when the craziness was over but we’d have some good stories to tell.  It was insane!!  By the time I even made it into the roon. there were no dresses left.  But, my mom and I each managed to get total reject dresses from some girls with at least 40 dresses and we were in the game.  I probably never had more than 4 dresses to trade at any one time and some were so bad no one wanted to trade, but after about 2 hours, I saw someone with my dream dress in my size and they decided that they didn’t want it and they didn’t even ask for a trade.  I LOVE my dress!!!  Its a midgley and sottero ASM3081 that I would never have been able to afford otherwise.  And I got some great stories out of the whole thing.  Deinately redommend anyone to go.  Great way to get a dress

I went and arrived at 6:30 with my sisters and was able to get nothing! My mom came at about 9 we wasted hours as no one would trade or what we had was ugly i was ready to give up about mid-day boy was I exhasuted!!! but my mom said no way. She found a girl about my size but someone told her they were holding them so she went back to see what was left. She found me a dress that had almost everything i wanted when i put it on i loved it and started to cry. I think it is worth going for the price i only paid $250 but feel i should have come a little later or you have to the first few ones to be able to grab a dress.

Congrats on having a success there! I’ve always wanted to do that, but I really can’t because I don’t think an off-the-rack dress will end up being long enough for me. (I’m 6’3″) It looks so fun though!
