Ebay Wedding Dress

I got totally taken for a ride when I bought a custom accouter on from China (idobridal) on eBay. I ordered it July 27th of last year, it arrived about 40 days later, and it was a complete witticism. The building was solid, and the fabrics were about what you’d expect from lower end bridal robe (even the ones in the shop), but it was absolutely nothing like the photo. Obviously I cane it’s a knockoff, but the lace overlay was so tightly cut that it suffocated the a line shape of the fabric underneath it. I would have either had to cut into the seize or remove it entirely. I also had ordered practice sleeves, and specifically, multiple times, requested NOT BELL SLEEVES. I sent 10 (10.) examples of the sleeves that I wanted, and they sent bell sleeves. It was great. By the time I had an issue with the dress, it was it was too late to open a case with eBay or Paypal. The dress was sent back in September of ’13, and I have still not received a refund for the $210 I spent. Obviously I’m not getting one. This is not to say that no one should buy from China. I’m sure sufficiency of followers have good experiences, but I’m still pissed circularly mine. Don’t reliance reconsideration, either, because they are very often planted. That’s something I knew when I bought my dress, but I still took a possibility, and am sore that I did. I would still take from overseas, but only from Etsy, and not from China. Best of hap to anyone trying this route, and stay off with from idobridal!

4. There is absolutely NO POINT in returning items I have versed (I’m a feedback reader) many accounts of people severe to return broken/spotted items to China and return postage costs more than the new item. Save yourself the effort, and make a decision to scribble off the amount you’re spending on your item, then if it arrives then great, if it doesn’t… buy a proper hint from an actual market

I Mr.’t think it’s fair to discount a seller just because he/she is located in China. Even when you buy products here, they were most likely made in China anyway. Any time you purchase anything spectacle unseen — chiefly if it is dirt cheap — you take a risk, regardless of the location of the seller. Case in point: I bought my dress for my marriage take from a seller in Nebraska, and not for cheap, and the fabric is thinner than I expected. You proper have to be smart throughout anything you buy online. Look for value, not just cheap

This is always a weird commonplace for me, because I’m a thrifty destroyer, but also an artist-entrepreneur with huge personal investment at rod, taking pride in making an American product, employing Americans, and then I sell at mid-range and luxury price points. It took 7 yonks, but I figured out that was what was best for everyone involved

5. Be aware of sizing conventions Chinese sizings often run small (especially vie to UK shoes) but sellers very often post measurements in centimetres for you to check against something in your home that fits you. Also they jump from US to UK dress sizes so I always scour the listing very carefully to check which they’re using, after that time I bought something listed as an 8 and it was really a UK 12 because it was a US 8. That went to a charity shop; lesson learnt. On the other hand, if they’re a Chinese designer/manufacturer and are making things for you themselves (rather than a wholesaler), they will sometimes do made-to-mandate custom stuff

Very good advice. It’s all about managing expectations. I’ve buy a few items for my wedding from Chinese vendors on either Etsy or eBay with mixed, but not terrible results. I got my jewelry set recently and it was absolutely beautiful & shipped within a reasonable tempo. I got a nacre necklace, bracelet and earrings for $40 (they are natural pearls so they aren’t perfectly spherical, but that’s the look I was going for with myself and my bridesmaids). I also got a customized earring for my earnest helix piercing that is gorgeous. However, I’ve had two experiences where the post discharge couldn’t decipher the hand written address on the package. First time I was able to catch it (for the helix jewelry), but the second package got respond. The vender was very accommodating tho, and because she sent it with tracking she agreed to send a substitute right aside

Another eBay consideration: shipping. More than half of the items listed on eBay include free marine. When it comes to mailing out a nuptials dress (think heavy fabrics, destiny of embellishments), you’re really gonna need it

Has anyone had experience with either JJ’s House or Light in the Box (which seem to be the same copartnery)? I was going to have my wedding dress habit-made, but no longer have access to my designer :(. I’m on a really close budget, and they have what seem to be some really gorgeous dresses on those place, plus resurvey where people have posted pictures of themselves wearing their dresses. I likely the performance that the dresses are made to system based on the measurements you send them. I’m not doings to find that awesome, ruffled purple dress at David’s Bridal!

According to a set on her blog, Wragg initially listed the dress on eBay without any explanation of its past, and had a tough time attracting buyers to command on it. After two weeks with minimal bites from bidders, Wragg’s brother suggested that she share the smock frock’s full backstory with potential buyers—in the funniest way possible. “I unmistakable with a inconsiderable help from my brother (ok it was all his idea!) to make it funny,” she wrote.
