My son is getting married March 28. I looked everywhere, it seems, to find an appropriate dress and just couldn’t not find one that I liked. When I was shopping online, I came across a number of sites that advertised dresses that were manufactured in China. To say the least, I was skeptical. Reviews about people’s experiences ordering directly from China were mixed (I do wonder if some aren’t written by competitors, but that’s just my theory). Anyhow, I found the dress I really wanted on the Dressilyme site, and decided to take a chance.
I could not be more pleased!
I had asked that the dress be delivered by March 5; it arrived today, February 17, quite a bit early. Also, I had a few questions regarding my order, and Amy from their company, responded very quickly with the information I needed. She was also very supportive and continued to reassure me about the delivery date.
For the dress, including the shipping charges, I paid $208…some dresses I looked at and didn’t even like that much were around $700.
Now to the dress itself. It arrived by DHL, and it was very well protected by the packaging. But, the most important point of this entire review is the quality of the dress!! The material is lovely; there is padding where there should be, the details on the dress and jacket are perfect; the dress is beautifully lined. Truly, an absolutely gorgeous dress!! The workmanship is outstanding!!
I am 5’4″, 114 lbs. and usually wear a size 4 dress; but I ordered a 6 to be safe. And, I am glad I did. It does have to be taken in a bit around the chest and, maybe, the hips; I do need the hem taken up, as it is definitely a generous length. However, other than that, the dress is perfect.
I posted a picture on the dressilyme website. The skirt isn’t laying as good as it will because it just came out of the packaging…and I’m not that good at taking self-pictures, but I hope you will recognize how beautifully made this dress is!
I actually had a nightmare about the dress arriving late and that it looked awful…but my nightmare turned into a wonderful reality! I could not be happier.
My suggestion to those of you who are reluctant to order directly from China. Use Dressilyme.com! You will be more than pleased!
