I sold a dress regret dress just last week. I had it listed on preownedweddingdresses.com and also the local Kijiji for where I live. I had some interest on the POWD site but ended up selling it to a local girl for $200 less than I paid – but it was brand new and unworn. Your price is around 50% discount so I think that’s totally reasonable for a used dress. Good luck!

@BookishBelle:  I sold FOUR gowns successfully – however they were all budget gowns (under $200) and I got what I paid for basically. 

 

If you do list it online, I’d go with preownedweddingdresses.com as it has great search engines.

 

Can you find other gowns just like yours for sale to see what they are going for?  Google the brand and # and you can find places that others have posted it for resale. 

The alterations may be the kicker.  If it was taken in at the waist and bust just for you, that’s going to be hard to sell than if you just hemmed it or added a bustle.

@BookishBelle:  Yes I remember your Insanity photos!  LOL

 

In that case, I’d still try to sell it but less than what everyone else is selling theirs for.  I’d go maybe $1600-1700 then (if you were thinking $2000) and mention in the write up your exact measurements or for anyone smaller.  If after months it doesn’t sell, then you could donate it for a write off.
