Iknow that when dresses are shipped from china, they are shipped inside out-I don’t know why, but I’m sure there is a reason for it. I would say definately inside a garment bag, and maybe folded over once for minimum of wrinkling, and shipped in a box like a coat box. I would also make sure the box was sealed really well. maybe wrap tape around the whole box a few times, just to be on the safe side.

When I sold my dresses, I just folded them inside the garment bag they came in and fit them into the box. It was $50-$60 within the US through UPS. I always got better prices when I created a shipping ticket online as opposed to when I went to a UPS store and got a quote.

@napabridekelsey: Yup! Just add the sales price also if you want insurance.
