Would you buy a second hand dress that someone has already worn or would you deem it a necessity to have a brand new dress that you know is your own?
I guess buying a second hand dress is much the same as hiring one really isn’t it?!?!

I would absolutely buy a second hand dress – especially if it’s one that I love and could get it so much cheaper than a brand new dress. =)

I totally would if I found one that I loved!!

I bought a second hand dress, and I’m really happy I did. It let me get a nice quality dress for crazy cheap, and recycling is good for everybody!

If I found one that was perfect but couldn’t afford a brand new one.

I tried on one that I fell in love with today but it’s £750, and I’ve found one on preloved.com about an hours drive away from me and they’re asking for £250 for it. I will have to have it altered but I would probably have had to pay for the brand new one to be altered also…

I bought my dress “pre-loved” and I love it! It originally cost around 2k but I got it for $350!!!

I bought my used and saved 50-75% of the cost of the dress new. I also saved on alterations since I have the same measurements as the seller.

I did! And I love it!
The only thing I wouldn’t buy second hand is underwear and socks, those I buy brand new.

I bought my dress from a consignment shop. It ended up being new (the previous owner bought two dresses and decided on the other), but all of the other dresses I tried on were prev worn. We found some amazing deals doing it that way

@asscherlover: I am a little smaller than the seller so wouldn’t get away without having it altered unfortunately.
@happyface: I think if anyone buys second hand underwear that needs questioning, especially seeing as you can’t return unused underwear to a store for hygiene reasons!! Made me smile!

I’d vote No mainly for the reason that I’m really tall and would require extra length on 99% of any wedding dress designers. And considering most preowned listings I see had hemming done on a regular length dress, this would not work for me!

@vickiburns: If you’re a size or two smaller than the seller it should be pretty simple alterations. Taking a dress in is usually easier than taking it out. The only thing you should be careful about is how the dress has been stored and cleaned. My dress is stained, but because of the location of the stains (underside of the train) nobody will notice [besides my MOH who will have to tie my bustle].
