- Wedding: February 2011
Ok I will admit I have had buyer’s remorse since ordering my dress off a Chinese website. I went to try dresses on and fell in love with a La Sposa Dilan but when I went to their site I really fell in love with the La Sposa Divina. I have arm issues and this dress was perfect.
So I found it here http://www.tiffanybridals.com/la-sposa-wedding-dresses-style-divina-p-2681.html and they did custom sizes for no extra. I did not have time to order the dress from a traditional dress shop and it was $800 less. So I measured and ordered. (I did pay the extra $25 for rush delivery)
Then I waited. I ordered Dec 20th and my order was #100 (which seemed very suspect to me). I emailed the company and no one go back to me. I emailed again and I got a nice email that I would have my dress 1/10/11. I even got a tracking number from them for http://www.tnt.com (which is a tracking company I had never heard of) and the number appeared to be tracking something in Italy… huh. My confidence was still shaky.
A few days later I checked again and the site was updated and my dress was in LA and en route. It showed up last Friday but needed a signature. I left the signed form yesterday and they left my dress at my door (I had my neighbor go get it while I was at work).
So last night I got it. It was heavy and in a big Fedex-like envelope. Inside was a garment bag with my dress. It is amazing!
Yes it is wrinkled but it needs to be steamed and altered. My biggest complaint is that it is way too long, but again that can be altered.
The boning is very quality. The stitching is perfect. There is even a slip underneath that is perfectly stitched. I cannot find a fault.
So I need to go to get it altered but really just in the length and some of the rousing needs some small adjustments. (To be expected)
I have a few pictures but no one was around to take pics of it on me so I will update later.
I just know how stressful it was waiting and if this helps put anyone’s mind at ease that good dresses do show up then here you go! I am not pushing buying knock-offs but it did work for me!
