I ordered 4 x BARI JAY bridesmaid dresses from Bridesmaids.com at the end of 2012. I must admit, I was slightly skeptical of them from the start, but knew 3 people who had ordered the same designer (Bari Jay) and had no problems (via bridesmaids.com)
First of all, as I soon saw when they arrived, none of the 4 styles look anything like the image in the photos. Two of the 4 dresses were unwearable because the zips had been sewn so badly that the side stuck out about 3-4 cm. In the end, I had to bear the cost of getting fixed because they never bothered to reply to my emails OR phone messages. Not only that, but 1 of the already broken ones had ripped fabric down the side and marks on the dress, Still no one cared to respond to my queries and I had to bear the brunt of the fixing of, and look of dresses. One of the dresses was cut unevenly at the bottom and we weren’t able to fix it. It sat too short and longer at one hem than the other. Awesome.
Every single one of the dresses were made so poorly and out of measurements, nothing even near the size chart they talk about. I was amazed that i was actually being sold and sent such products in this quality and condition.
Each dress is made differently and sizing varies immensely even in the same size but different dresses (eg. 2 strapless in size 10 were almost 2 sizes different in comparison to one other). The dresses with beading on them are horrible, the beading is an off colour and is NOTHING like what it looks like in the mirror. The beading is also sewn onto the dresses (light “off yellow/pink” cheapest looking beading that looks SILVER jewels in the picture) with COLOURED thread and just hanging on, with all the threads visible.
IMO, I would never reccommend buying the Bari Jay dresses or from bridesmaids.com from my experience. Its not worth the hassle, and although in some photos and parts the dresses looked ok through my jewelry styling, which made the outfit as best it could be thank goodness, I was looking for new dresses 2 weeks before my wedding but was unable to afford or justify the costs this would be.
Hope someone finds this useful!
My initial experience was they were helpful and always responded to me in ok timeframes, of course this appears to only be the case if and when they can or have just made a sale.
