Typically if it’s been altered, that significantly reduces the fair price of the dress.  Even though it hasn’t been worn, because it’s been altered, it reduces the number of brides that can fit in the dress.  I couldn’t sell mine to save my life because it was altered for my 5’2 frame.  The average height of a woman in the U.S. is 5’4.

I would rec no more than $1500 and leave wiggle room for a best offer if you really want to sell it.

Usually you don’t recoup more than 50% from selling a used dress (especially one that’s been altered). I’d list it at 60% of the original price to leave room for negotiation.

I don’t think you would get more than $1300 for it

Ditto what everyone else said above, but I think you’ll be hard pressed to get more than $1k for it.  Most dresses (not altered) can fetch about 50%.  If it was altered, much less.

@MrsSanchizel:  I think you will be lucky to get $1000 for it.  For your reference, I bought my dress used, the bride paid $1800 for it and I bought it from her for $350.

I also dont see someone paying more than $1000-1200 MAX. However, if you price it right above that you have wiggle room like a PP said.
