    It sounds like she makes these dresses out of her home and may not have a set-up where she can welcome customers. I wouldn’t worry about that. I would go ahead and order from her but expect to get the dresses altered when you get them. That would be expected even in a dress shop so it doesn’t seem like an extra burden.

    Well if I were selling things on Etsy or eBay I wouldn’t allow a random person that only “knows” me through the internet stop by my house either.

    Are they custom made or could you return them if you/your girls are unhappy?

    @JrzyGurl:  I like the 1st purple dress and on the bottom dress A. I think ruffles on the chest area maybe a hard thing to pull off if your BMs are large chested…..just something to keep in mind.

     

    It sounds like she has a lot of positive reviews and I think ETSY is a safe place for the most part….I have bought tons on there with no problems. The biggest thing is making sure your girls measure correctly when they send their measurements.

    I agree with the others – maybe the seller just isn’t equipped to have people stop by.  Perhaps they want their privacy too.

    @JrzyGurl:  I ordered my 6 BM dresses from this etsy shop! They are expected to ship dec 6 and I am so excited! I will post pics when I get them and so a review on quality! But with all her 5 star reviews, I am not worried:)

    @JrzyGurl:  The reason why it wouldnt be possible is because she would have to make them as a custom order and it is most likely not possible to see the dresses in person because she is most likely working out of her home and a lot of people dont feel comfortable letting a complete stranger in their home. I sell bouquets on etsy. If someone asked to see mine in person I would say no as well.
