I fell for a dress online that was unlike any other dress I’d seen. After researching the designer (Sue Wong), I learned that the general consensus is that she really knows how to design to flatter a woman’s body and people who buy her dresses tend to be extremely satisfied.
Since no stores nearby carry Sue Wong, I took the plunge and placed an order online (after taking my measurements and talking with an extremely kind and helpful customer service rep at Unique Vintage).
I’m super excited, but also super nervous since I’m usually so picky and I haven’t even tried this dress on! Somehow I feel like it’ll work out, though…
Anyone else buy a dress online that they never tried on? How’d it work out?

I didn’t, but I would love to see what you chose. Can we see a pic?

I have ordered mine without trying it on, but I have tried on similar styles so I am hoping it will be flattering. If you have a good figure and/or know what suits you I think you should be ok. I am plus sized and I learned what shapes suited me and then looked at those style dresses til I fell in love 🙂

@tksjewelry: Sure thing!
We want to have a relaxed Summer wedding, hopefully outdoors.

ETA: do they allow returns just in case its too big or small?

@ShellVee: I hope it works out for you!
I generally know what works for me, but I rarely buy form-fitting dresses, let along full-length or beaded…
– I’m nervous about the fit. I usually wear between sizes 4-6 (more 6) but the size chart suggested I order 8. People say Sue Wong dresses run true to size, but I’m not sure what that would be in my case! I ordered a 6.
– I’m also a bit worried that I may dislike the beading (I’m not a huge fan of beading). It looks pretty subtle, though, which is good.
Despite these things, I still feel super positive. I have a good feeling about this dress, so hoping that’s a good sign!

@natbug21: Thank you!!
Based on what the rep told me, it should be here some time between 5-10 days.
I wish it would be here tomorrow! haha

I did! I kinda regreted it at first, but when I tried it on the second time I loved it again!

I went shopping for dresses, but the pressure and the price was getting me down so I turned to the internet. I have ordered a dress of Darling Husband Gate, a site for wholesale shopping (for stores etc). My seller is called Kiss Bridal and I am waiting for my dress to be shipped (maybe today or tomorrow). I really hope I will like it and won’t have to get it altered much, but the very low price makes other changes not such a big deal. I paid about 140 US, which is cheaper in Euros (I’m in France). I am a 24 y old, street size 2, and 5f5 with a very small bust, so I hope and think this dress will be good…do you like? Oh and I asked for floor length, no train.
BTW I really like your Sue Wong, it’s retro!

I couldn’t vote because I have ordered my dress without seeing it, but I haven’t received it yet. Hopefully it will work out lol. I like the dress you chose, it looks like it would go great with what you described.
