If you search Dressilyme on the search engine [on the right side of the page if you don’t know where it’s at]. You’ll see plenty of threads starting for/about the website.
As far as I’ve read, most of the reviews have been fab. The only bad reviews I’ve seen were from ladies who were expecting a 100% replica, which dressilyme does not do. Their dress are 80-95% replica.
If you are okay with getting a dress replicated and not 100% the actual dress, then they will be a great option with you.
If you want 100% replica, you’ll need to buy the original dress.

@jaim1104: Dressilyme do have good reviews. They will customise the size, but don’t generally customise the dress, ie. changes from the original design. But they may depending on the dress and what changes you want.
They are cheaper than Jasmines Bridal Shop who are probably the ‘better’ replica company as far as quality of materials and customisation is concerned. That is, they will make changes to the original design. Lots of Bees want the skirt of one dress and the top of another, or to add or delete sleeves, change neckline, etc.
Depends on what level of customisation and replication/quality you want. Both companies are highly recommended on this site.

Dressilyme is great, you just have to give them exact instructions. Don’t leave anything to chance. For example, I sent them a pic of a dress I wanted them to replicate, and when they did, the bodice was nowhere as long as that of the original dress, which was what made it look good on me in the first place. I didn’t think I needed to specify I wanted a longer bodice, because it was a replica of a long bodiced-dress.
Everything else about the dress is beautiful though. The beading and lace were gorgeous, and no faults in craftmanship as far as I could see. Communication was great (a bit frustrating though) and the dress was done in less than the expected time. They were also quite helpful by sending pictures and making whatever changes (other than the length of the bodice) that I wanted.

From what I’ve seen, Mrs. Cooke makes a good point about how you need to be VERY CLEAR AND SPECIFIC about what you want. As long as you do that, it’ll be good.
A lot of times they say they can’t do mid-production photos but it seems like most of the time they will agree to do it if you insist. I wouldn’t buy a dress from there unless they sent mid production photos.

@jaim1104: That is why I prefer Jasmines because mid production photos are included. Then if they need to make alterations they will take another set of photos. Until the final set before you approve the dress.

Dressilyme did that for me as well.. they took pictures every time requested changes were made.. about 3-4 times

@FutureMrsCooke: That’s good to know because this is the first time I have read that. Most ladies say that they refuse to take photos unless you really insist. Dressilyme are a really good alternative as their dresses are cheaper, so for bridesmaid dresses I would consider them.
But Jasmines made all of our bridal party dresses.

Ok, but what if the dress I want is already featured on their site? Then obviously I don’t have to send them pics correct? All I’d have to send them are my measurements from what I understand…

@jaim1104: Yes, you don’t need to send them other photos in that case, though I’d think that extra photos might help make it clear what you want if you do have them.

I had a negative experience with Dressilyme–Although many people have great photos to share, they did a horrible job with a lace dress that I ordered. They didn’t take into account my measurements, so the dress fits terribly. The lace is poor quality and came ripped in spots. I wouldn’t order a dress with lace, and make sure they follow your measurement guidelines. One big problem is that if there is any issue–especially after you get the dress–you are completely out of luck. Once they send you the dress, they wash their hands of you. I believe it says they have a return policy, but that is a joke. Just FYI, I wouldn’t necessarily jump into it thinking you’ll get 100% the dress that is on the website.
