I ordered my dress and my girls dress from Millanoo and had no problems at all I used PayPal to pay for it my seamstress could not believe the craftsman ship the dress had . I paid like 180 I think and I wear a 16-18 us size I ordered a 20 because they seem to make us sizes smaller there.

@Rayray:  You look gorgeous!  It really is amazing what a few alterations can do.  Very pretty and good choice.

My dress was a custom design and ordered through a local store BUT was made in china.  Where I live we have tons of designer salons but we also have numerous stores run by chinese with the product made and delivered from China.  I was a little hesitant as it was a dress I dreamed up in my head and worried something would be missed..but I had no other choice.  I expected it to be tweaked here and I was 100% confident the stores seamstress would be amazing.

My dress came in early, made beautifully, with much nicer quality than I was expecting.  We made the alterations in store and it was perfect….for me!  😉

I think as long as you are specific with what you want, your expectations, and understand seamstresses work wonders it can be a very good option.

Good luck.

I went to DB to try on dresses. Fell in love with a Vera. Rung the bell, made a wish.Thought I’d order a similar dress from China. I couldn’t part with $1300 at the time. After countless reviews I decied wth. I chose the site http://www.outerinner.com based on reviews!

First, I ordered swatches of the fabric since I ordered a blush colored dress. Well the swatch was the correct color. But fast forward 15 days later and I have received the dress. I had a custom-made dress to suit my measurements. The dress was well made and was beautiful. I mean it fit like a glove and didn’t need any alterations. But the color was just super bright. I mean it was TOOOOOOOO DAMN Pink. I guess when there is so much fabric all together the color is different. Needless to say my dad ended up buying to Vera Wang dress I wanted in the first place. Out of $123. Shrugs, oh well!

But here is the dress. Anyways here are pics of me. I even took it to DB to buy a petticoat and accessorize it as I wanted to add a different sash. But I just couldn’t get over how pink it was. Notice in the second picture there is a blush dress (Vera). That is the color it should have been. Oh well, that’s what my behind gets for being cheap! Overall I would recommend this company. The dress would have been ok if it had been ivory or white.

I ordered mine from dressilyme and was happy with it. It’s not super high quality but it was better than I thought it would be for the price. I also ordered a dress from simplybridal that I was very dissapointed in – it seemed like it was cheaper fabric etc than dressilyme

@Barika:  Thank you… this is going to sound a little stalky but before I joined weddingbee I frequented the full figure boards and added pics of brides to my evernote folder for inspiration, and you were one hahaha!   I was having a bit of a crisis of confidence on how to approach wedding dress shopping before I decided to buy 5 from China and sell the ones I didn’t like.   I bought one very similar to your one but I just loved the grecian style with my outdoor venue and the weather etc.
