Make sure you have great pictures of it up and list the measurements. The size of the dress also might be an issue if you’re not a popular size.

I bought my dress on ebay!

Make sure you list the dress # in the title, use plenty of pictures of the ACTUAL dress and possibly the designer’s image and as many details as possible (color, size, altererd or not, your height, your bust/waist/hip measurements, and damage or dirt, etc). Having the ability to try on the dress is also a draw, especially at that price.

To be totally honest, though, a lot of the people looking for used bridal gowns have very small budgets. I wanted to spend no more than $500 and ebay allowed me to do that!

You could also look at Craigslist.org and do a free ad there, but you will have to replace the ad every week.  $1,000 may be too much for a used gown, but place the ad each week at a different price and see what kind of bite you get.

Saw the dress, very pretty.


I would make sure to add any measurement details (yours will do) and height (with shoes). For me it was impossible to find a used dress that would accomodate my height with shoes so I opted to purchase a new dress instead.

Best of luck!
