I have a sample dress, really wanted to save money.

you can do a strapless long line bra or have the cups built into the dress if there is enough structure

Fawun92: Congrats! It’s beautiful! I would have a bra sewn in. It’s the easiest.

My best friend had a sample and no regrets. Just a great deal!

That dress is stunning! I haven’t yet started trying on dresses, but that would pretty much be my ideal dress. Gorgeous!

I bought a sample. I got a great deal too! Woohoo!

I had cups put in by my seamstress. They’ll go over everything with you when it’s time for alterations.

That dress is beautiful! I have a sample dress too. There is nothing wrong with it and just needs to be hemmed up about 6 inches. Depending on your size and how you feel you look in the dress will determine what kind of underwear you will need. This dress looks like it has plenty of structure so I’m thinking you might not need any shapewear. Built in cups are nice and then you don’t have to worry about a bra. You might want an extra skirt if you want it to be poufy like on the model. I can guarantee she has extra layers.

I also bought the sample floor dress for my wedding.  As long as there are no real damages to the dress, it should be fine.  I saved almost $3K going this route but did spend a significant amount in cleaning the dress (since it was the sample) and in alterations.  I do regret buying the sample as my dress since the sample size was so big on me (over 5 sizes too big) that the overall shape of the dress was not as flattering on me once it was all done. (only dress regret)
