@Cuddle Bug: I would definitely have a friend get out a measuring tape and make sure that you’re matching the dimensions to the original store’s website. Sometimes bridal sizing is really wonky, and that’ll make sure you get the proper fit! 

And congratulations, that’s a fantastic price!

Careful.  This is a Chinese knock-off site, and while people have had success with Dressilyme and Light In the Box, I have never heard of this one before, and I’m very weary of websites with really horrible Chinese > English language translation on the website… as many of them are scams.   It might be fine, I’m not saying it’s definitely a scam, but just be prepared and have a backup plan.  Good luck!!

Just be aware that is a replica site. It is not an original dress on sale; it is a dressmaker who copies other designs with less attention to detail and usually cheaper materials. Many bees have had fabulous experiences with replicas, but you should not expect it to look exactly like the original.

@Cuddle Bug:

My mom got her MOB dress from Light In the Box.com – that was the website she found the most reviews for outside of the actual websites.  I would search through the boards here on the bee and see if anyone has had any experience with the website you’re looking at.  If not a single bee has ever mentioned it, I would be VERY cautious.  But I’ve seen several postitive reviews for Dressilyme and Light in the Box on here – as long as you order knowing that its a replica and your expectations are reasonable!

If you prefer a non-replica site, I’ve heard good things about RK Bridal, Pearl’s Place, and Plus Size Bridal (they carry normal sizes too). I don’t know what their discount would be on your dress, but I’ve only read positive things about them.

Definitely get professionally measured if you can, or carefully measured by a friend.

Yes, Jasmines does. They have you email them a picture and then they quote you. The pricing is amazing for the quality and fabric. I got mine from them.

They made this dress for around $500.

@MIBEETOWED: That is an amazing dress. It looks just as good as any designer one and better than most. So beautiful.

@MIBEETOWED: That is GORGEOUS!  LoL.. I probably just like it because it looks a lot like my own dress in red.  I have an Aire Barcelona dress (Nuria).
