    It’s never a waste of time to try and get your money back. How long has it been since you received the item? I would still try.

    It’s kind of a hot mess, but at the very least, you know this is a flattering shape for you (your shoulders look great in it).  It’s sweet that he tried to spare you the hassle/anxiety of dress shopping, but yes, that’s incredibly frustrating that he pissed 500$ away.

    (BTW, you do have somebody to dress shop with! You can bring your fiance.)

    Megsky:  me too to be honest, you could share your story with brides beware on Facebook- they have a load of photos of disastrous dresses some much worse than yours to discourage brides from buying off eBay/Chinese sellers. I’m not saying there’ll bad tho cos I love the jasmine bridals pages x

    Megsky:  First, once all is said and done and you’re married and blissfully happy, you have one hell of a good story to tell!

    In the meantime, explore your options for selling it on a pre-owned website. You just never know who might think that is the “the one” for them. And you have nothing to lose. Grab a fancy camera, take some flattering pictures, and list it for $300 or something. Good luck!

    Edited to add: I just realized this thread is pretty old, so maybe you already figured out what to do with it. Hope so!

    Megsky:  

    You should call around and see if any stores have a Lenix sample you could purchase off the rack for a discount, that way you can get the real thing. Also did you look on preownedweddingdresses.com to see if anyone was selling one?

    Also DO NOT buy anything from the above post, its another scam site.

    GonnaBeeMarried: Look, I think it’s a tacky dress, but that doesn’t mean there’s not some bride out there who wants a dress that looks exactly like that one. Who am I to judge? Why is my advice so horrible? I’m not telling her to lie to anyone. She could post photos of it and let people decide for themselves. It’s not our place to decide what every bride in the world must like or must think is disgusting.

    GonnaBeeMarried:  Someone might like it.  It isn’t hideous like some I’ve seen.  No one is going to buy it if they don’t like it.
