Inweddingdress Review #27
I recently got married (march 1st) in a dress from inweddingdress.com. I found your site very helpful when I was looking for a dress online so I'd like to share my experience.
The dress I ordered: http://www.inweddingdress.com/style-bc475.html
Ordered it in Ivory/Platinum size 12
My only regret with this wedding dress is that I didn't measure myself accurately before I ordered. It was 2 sizes too big on me which meant the fittings were a lot more work than they had to be. So from my experience, if you want to order a dress online, get yourself measured first!
But other than being too big, which was my fault, I was extremely happy with the purchase for the price. There were 3 layers to this dress and boning in the bodice and bra cups in the lining. It felt very sturdy and well made. I was a little afraid I might bust out of the zipper because it was a bit snug once the alterations were done but it was fine all day.
I don't have a good eye for shades of white but the dress did seem whiter than ivory. If the shade of white is a big deal to you then ordering online might not work out so well.
The lace was very pretty but it was a bit rough. Not really soft lace, more like mesh. But I feel that it looked very delicate in the pictures and it never snagged on anything. You couldn't tell that it was kind of rough from looking at it.
I would definitely recommend ordering a dress through this site. I don't know if I'd go for anything too complicated since there's more risk of it not being exactly like the picture or not being what you expected, but for a simple dress that is going to be affordable and fun to wear for 1 day then I don't see any problem with ordering online.
