You bees are so much more internet savvy than I am! Can you creep on this seller and tell me if they seem to be too good to be true? Does your scam vibe go off? They have such high scores and comments, and all dress-related, but the feedack comments are a little off-putting with their briefness. Maybe that’s just how people review stuff on eBay? I would be ordering bridesmaid gowns, not my wedding dress. It seems to me like eBay is reputable enough that it would be difficult to fake a long history of good reviews but idk.

All of their “followers” don’t have any items which is sketchy, right??

Ya the followers seem strange to me…but the reviews look good. It would still be suspicious if it wasn’t a whole lot of sales with all good reviews…but it does show they have a lot of sales and have been open on ebay since 2009. So to me that would give me a better feeling about them. My suggestion would be to maybe order one bridesmaid dress instead of all of them at once. Wait till you get the one dress in to see if it is good quality and if you want to order the rest of them. Good luck with whatever you decide. 🙂

208bride: Well for starters, the followers don’t need to have items to follow them! They might be buyers who have bookmarked them as a favourite seller.
Also, you are only given 80 characters for your feedback remark so people generally leave these very short – they don’t really have a choice!

208bride: you can easily fake eBay reviews. Not sure how – whether they but them or have some computer algorithms, but I’ve heard it often that the eBay reviews don’t necessarily come from real customers.

208bride: I’d say the first red flag is that they are located in China. I always try to avoid eBay sellers located in China, mostly because the shipping takes so long – at least a month.
The feedback on eBay is limited to about 70 characters, so all of the reviews are going to be brief. Kind of annoying, but it is what it is.
The dresses on their site look really nice, but all of the backgrounds in the photos are different, which leads me to believe that they are using the images from the original designers. In other words, these photographs are not of dresses produced by this eBayer, but photos of the dresses they are knocking off.
Every dress is priced the same, $15.17/GBP 8.99, which is a little weird, considering some dresses require more fabric and time to produce than others, which generally necessitates differences in pricing. Regardless, the price listed sounds too cheap to be good quality.
I would be wary of this eBay seller and would probably look elsewhere. I googled the seller’s name to try to find non-eBay reviews online. I found exactly one result (which is also a little fishy, why only one?), but it was positive. It could be legit, but I’d proceed with caution.

I am pretty confident that this is legit. The dresses are not actually listed all the same. When you go to a page, you select what you would like from that auction, if it’s the dress, dress +petticoat, gloves, etc. The price is different based on what you want. And the more involved dresses cost more money. It’s still pretty inexepensive for a wedding dress (most around $200 US), but it’s not so cheap that I’d be worried. Good luck!

208bride: I am an ebay seller– it looks legit to me. As far as I know you can’t fake ebay feedback. This is why as a seller I have to make sure EVERY customer is happy. If you read, she has a few neutral reviews and 1 negative– which is pretty standard because it’s hard to please everyone. Plus when you pay with paypal and ebay you have ebay buyer protection & paypal protection so you are protected. it’s a buyers world on ebay, so I would say go for it! I would ask for all REAL photos beforehand so you know what you are getting, but ebay is a seriously secure site. Btw Ive bought/sold on ebay for years & I have over 3,000 positive feedbacks with not one negative. I’m an ebay junkie:)

I would take a leap with this seller, but I’d make sure you had plenty of time to order and alter another dress incase it doesn’t work out. Paypal will pretty much protect you if something should happen [seller flakes, sends you a crappy product, ect].

Also, ebay doesn’t let you leave super long reviews, that’s probably why most of them are short.

ellie-b: Hey, I wrote that review- I asked for real photos first and the dress that arrived looked like the real photo. I’m still going to be wearing the dress in the evening . I do however had a shop bought dress that I will be wearing during the day. I didn’t get an underskirt, I plan to get a coloured one seperatley. The dress arrived in the smallest package but wasn’t creased. I’m happy with this dress, it does the job for a low price. It’s always a risk buying stuff on ebay but I only paid £43 with free p&p and I think it’s ok. Hope this helps & Karis from PracticalEverAfter xx

They have 5 neutral reviews, which are nearly the same as negative reviews. Overall, they seem legit. They’ve been on eBay for 5+ years.

I ordered a dress from these guys (2011wecan) its fantastic! The quality is great and fits me perfectly. They even provided a tracking number. The dress took only 4 days to arrive and only 15 days to make.
