Wait, what’s wrong with preowned?  You get a beautiful designer dress that was only worn a few hours at someone’s happy occasion at a fraction of the price.  What’s not to love?  I don’t get it.

@Gia210:  Preowned is just a friendlier sounding term for used. It’s usually just a bride selling her dress that she wore to her wedding, I’d assume the main reason is so she can recoup some of the cost she spent on the dress when she purchased it new. Some well known websites are preownedweddingdresses.com oncewed.com and tradesy.com (previously recycled bride). You’re usually dealing with the bride who wore the dress when you contact them on those sites (though there are some consignment shops that sell on there). It’s just like buying any other used garment on eBay or something. Unfortunately, when you’re dealing with the individual person and not a company, you usually can’t simply have them send it to you for you to try on then send it back, but maybe you could work something out with the seller. The ones your seeing for $300 are most likely on knock-off websites.

Karmagirl is right, im in love with this dress and i totally dont mind buying it preowned (it basicly is my only chance i guess, as the dress is discontinued and i am located in europe where Lazaro is completely unavailable) 🙂

the only very unfortunate thing is that no one is selling the sherbet/floral version:S the only ones i found are already gone: http://media.preownedweddingdresses.com/dresses/25012/Lazaro-LZ3819-Size-4.html

@Gia210:  the ones selling for $300 are surely a replica. some of these dresses come out very nicely – ive heard brides being very happy with their replicas (comparing them to the original and finding no flaws or differences). but this is very individual as there are numerous sotries of awful replica dresses (where e.g. the lace/embroidery cut-outs are not even sewn onto the dress but glued and far from precisely) so that would be a risk worth $300.

Some preowned dresses are worn, some are not. I would go for a preowned dress if the owner was straightforward and willing to work something out where you would be refunded if anything was wrong with the dress and the owner didn’t disclose.
