    I purchased my dress online at Lightinthebox. I measured my sizes and got it custom made.

    I got the dress in after about 5 weeks, it fits perfectly and it looks gorgeous. I went to a bridal and they quoted me 1500-2000 euros (depending on custom fitted or not) for a similar dress. I ended up paying 90 euros including shipping.<br /><br />

    When are you getting married? I definitly recommend ordering the dress early and paying with paypal. Paypal has got you covered and if the dress does end up to be hideous or whatever, you have time to get something else.

    Here’s two iPhone photos from the top of my dress. The neckline seems a little uneven, but thats because I’m lifting up one of my arms. Don’t mind the necklace and bra. 😉 <br />

    I definitly recommend getting it custom fitted, I measured everything myself and it turned out to be perfect, but its probably better to let someone else do it. I personally find that they put more effort into the custom fitted dresses compared to the regular sizes.


    Also, check out eBay! A lot of Chinese/Hong Kong sellers on there and you can just check their feedback. eBay buyer protection also has you covered.
