I’m not sure where you have posted it, and what information you included, but, as someone looking for used dresses, I can tell you what I want to see in a post.

1) The dress should be discounted at least 50%. If the dress is not in great condition, it should be discounted more.

2) Include pictures of yourself in the dress. If you only include pictures of the dress on a hanger, it’s really difficult to tell what a dress looks like.

3) Include your measurements- especially if the dress is altered. When people write, “I took in the dress in the bust/waist/hips,” but they don’t disclose what the new measurements are, it is impossible to know how large the dress is. Since most sellers do not accept returns, I would never buy a dress without knowing its size.

Good luck!

I sold one on ebay (you’ll need to price it lower) and I’ve bought one on recycledbride.com now tradesy and preownedweddingdresses.com also had posted on craigslist, here, weddingchannel, the knot, 100layers, and some others, 

You’ll need patience, it can take months for just the right bride to come along.

Good luck!

I was a two dress bride and ended up selling my dress on Recycled Bride for exactly what I had paid for it. The dress however was unworn and purchased at a discount price. It took me about 8 months to sell it and I had it on multiple sites including ebay- it wasn’t easy! Be as detailed as possible, include many photos and be honest in your descriptions. Also, an offer to have it dry cleaned or shipped for free doesn’t hurt. Good Luck!
