I ordered one of my bridesmaid dresses from light in the box. We ordered a burgundy color swatch to make sure it would match the other girl’s dresses which it did. So we ordered her dress, it took two weeks to ship and when it arrived it was BRIGHT RED. She tried sending it back and they said that their return policy states color issues are not their fault. So she said it also didn’t sip up all the way and they told her she would have to take a picture of herself in the dress to prove to them it didn’t fit. She refused to do so and threatened them with a lawsuit if they wouldn’t take it back and after a lot of grief she finally got her money back. It was awful.

I have ordered my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from there, they should arrive early April and I will post pics and do a review when they arrive. I have heard good and bad feedback but since the prices are so low I figure that if they end up being a disaster I will cut my losses and look for something else. The ordering process was professional and I am impressed so far by the emails confirming dleivery time etc.

I haven’t used LITB but I’ve heard of lots of girls in New Zealand that have had good success using them.

I’ll admit that I never actually saw or felt the dress, but my Bridesmaid or Best Man didn’t seem disappointed in it.

My friends & I have ordered about 12 dresses from them so far!!!

I think the best advice is to order dresses with minimal risk involved. Unique cuts, embellishments, and fabrics have brought the only difficulties we’ve experienced so far.

I ordered their fabric swatch card and it was definitely worth it!

They have about 28 colors that all come in about 7 different fabrics, so they really do vary by fabric. On top of that, since Chiffon & Organza are so sheer they are lined with the other opaque fabrics which also alters their color.

A lot of the colors are not at all what you would imagine. The color they call “Hunter” ranges from Emerald Green in Organza layered with Satin to almost Turquoise in Taffeta! It is very pretty though ๐Ÿ™‚

I posted a review in a different thread with images of our actual dresses too, which you should be able to find tthrough my profile I think…

Feel free to PM me if any of you have specific questions about LITB dresses!
