I love the look of it, its one of those made-to-order sites which worries me and I could never buy a dress without trying it on first because I do the same with clothes I will like the way something looks but try it on and not like it so much.
What do you all think?
I love the fit, the sweetheart neckline, the detail on the bodice, I would definitely figure out something out for the ribbon sash as I dont think im a black sash bride its not my style.
Anyone have any idea if this dress is a replica of another?

It’s beautiful! But I’ve heard horror stories about dresses made on that site. I recommend looking for something similar in a real store.

There are tons of dresses like that in stores. You should definitely just make an appointment to try on styles and if you feel like you can’t justify the expense, then maybe consider ordering from a place like that. I’ll take a look and try to find similar styles.
I know Lazaro and Tara Keely (my dress is by Tara Keely, which is designed by Lazaro but less expensive) have similar styles.

If you’re looking for something inexpensive, I’ve even seen a similar dress by Davids Bridal. Also, from many other bridal companies.

Thanks for input bees!
I am NOT a big fan of DB, I did not like the feel/look of not one of their dresses so they are not an option.
Today Im actually going to my…6 dress appointment today….so Ive been around the block a bit.
Ive never quite come across a dress like this
There was one that was fitted with the see thru overlay like that one BUT it was very fitted all the way down so hard to walk in and I like how this one relaxes after the hips to the bottom. I think it also didnt have such a pretty bodice
And once again love the neckline and the detail in the bodice.

It’s a lovely looking dress but when you order from the internet there’s no way of checking the fit, quality of workmanship or material beforehand. If it’s inexpensive you could order the dress and then try to sell if it doesn’t fit.
Fitted lace dresses are not uncommon, so if you could find one you liked a good seamstress could probably add the sweetheart neckline and tulle layer on the skirt. How is the tulle attached to the skirt? I can’t really tell from the pics…

I think you should probably not order from websites that don’t know how to spell “clearance” (hallmark of foreign knockoff sites).
It’s likely a front for an operation in China that does knockoff dresses. The pic with the item may not be of an actual dress they’ve made – it may be from the “real” designer. I’d do more research on this company before buying from them.

The shape your liking is REALLY FAB a bit of everything on that dress wish it really was as simple as viewing online & ordering but dress hunting can become less & less exciting by the day, i’ shortlisted a few dresses i liked online to view & try on & it turns out to be very dispointing in quaility or detail to the eye when viewed in reality & some dresses i’ve tried in stores i think i would of never considered loving online, so i guess i have to give & take advice here to get out trying as many as you can & if buying online make sure you can return if it turns out not to be as you expected ?
