Designer knock off from Ebay?

Thu Oct 07, 2010 8:10 am

I have noticed in a thread or two that a few of you have ordered a dress from ebay.

Just wondering if anyone can post any pics of your dress so i can have a look at quality?

Thanks in advance.

I'd be interested in this aswell... I think I would rather lose a couple of hundred and have it pay off and save thousands in the long run...

I've been down this path... $170 all up. As far as the make goes.. the beading was excllent and so was the stiching ect ect. The let down was the carp quality material and they didn't use boning in the corset. So it's being kept in the cupbaord and I'm going to do a trash the dress photoshoot with it.

took me a while but I found the seller....

Seller: Member id dressballprom ( Feedback Score Of 198)
No longer a registered user :?

Anyway... my best friend got hers off ebay and it fit perfect and looked and felt amazing, so I guess it's a bit of a luck of the draw.

Wow thanks for that! It looks beautiful!

I was thinking if it comes to $250 and i have to spend the same on getting alterations done, eg boning or have it taken in... it would be well worth it.

Yep that was my plan too, would have worked out too, if the material hadn't been so sheer/crappy. Still I like this dress better than the one I got made thru Big D. It's going to look awesome when we do the TTD session.

I have heard alot of good reports from Landy bridal who are in the UK i think but they also sell on ebay under ASAPBAY.

I also have been watching one maggie sotterro gown in fashion impression and i have even contacted a few people who bought the same dress. they have all said so far that they love it and just had to have a few little alterations done but they are very please!
