I need your help with my wedding dress. I ordered a “replica” Vera Wang Gemma from Jasmine’s bridal shop in China. I ordered it in off-white, with sequins in designer grade fabric and premium grade craftmanship. To me, the dress doesn’t look quite right.
I don’t want to lead the question by stating what I think is wrong, but I would really appreciate honest opinions on the dress. Would you be happy with the state of the dress if this was yours? What would you tell them to fix?

@babecake: I am sorry I cannot see anything wrong with it. Upon comparing to the original the only thing I think is a huge difference is the bottom fluffs out a bit more and doesn’t graudate as well as the original. I really like it though and think they’ve done really well!

It wrinkles on the hip area on one side? That’s all I can see…

Looks great to me. I don’t have a clue what’s wrong with it.

@Jacofblues: I’ll second that the bottom doesn’t gradually fluff out, but I’m not seeing any other issues. I think it’s very pretty, too!

I think it looks pretty. Its not a dead ringer for the Gemma dress, but its a nice dress in itself if it fits well.

For lack of a better way to put it something seems off with the left boob ruching.

I think it looks fab! But if I were looking for something wrong I’d say that theres an odd line or something in the lining of the dress…I dunno though, it could just be the lighting or my screen.

@futuremrsk18: that’s what I saw, too — but only because I was trying to find a flaw. Honestly, it looks great. But maybe in real life there’s an obvious flaw?

Humm..I don’t see anything wrong with it…maybe it flares out too much? Idk I am just making up things, cuz I think its beautiful and see nothing wrong with it.

@babecake: I’m sorry but what do you expect? You’re ordering a cheaper version from China. You’re trying to get away from buying the dress you really want by having something less expensive made… of course it isn’t going to be perfect in your eyes. There’s a reason Vera Wang is so expensive and it’s not just because of a markup.
For what it’s worth, it looks fine in the photo to me. I’ve heard so many disasters of brides ordering dresses from China.

If I HAD to find a “flaw” I would say maybe the left boob looks funny….but that is forcing myself to find something. I think it looks great!
