UPDATE pics in comments: Review of my China dress

January 20th I ordered my wedding dress from Lightinthebox.com.

it arrived today (after briefly being lost by the company)

Well I only have crappy pictures so far (check back tomorrow lol) but I'm in love! I think its Stunning!! VERY true to the picture, no wonky hems, long enough (which is awesome because I'm 6 feet), no rips or stains, a very well put in zipper, Crinoline, typical bridal material, it feels just like all of the dresses I tried on. I am VERY impressed with my China dress because I honestly wasn't expecting much.

The only negative thing I will say is that I ordered custom sizing and it is too big. I will have to get it altered down so that it isn't sliding off lol.

    They do pretty well! All of the girls in my city's wedding swap said great things about them, really helped bring down the anxiety while I was waiting on it lol

    I think that as long as you're happy with it, that is what matters. You do need to put up some better pictures though I feel as though you're teasing us with the cell phone pictures.

    Light in the box is a site I trust more than ebay or alibaba. I've seen two happy brides from that site. I'm glad it worked out for you! Looking forwards to seeing it fitted

    So glad to read your review. I ordered a dress from them because it was so cute and they had it for a $100 off so I decided it was worth a try. I should receive it in the next week or so.

    I'm so glad it worked out for you and that you're happy with your dress!

    I didn't get my wedding gown from them, but I did use Light In The Box for other things and have been very happy with them. I got my headpiece, veil, and bridesmaids dresses & chiffon wrap/shawl there, and it's all been great!

    That's really great that you loved it! I got a dress from there that I wore as a guest to a wedding and it turned out great, a little big in the top though. Nothing too difficult to fix though which was great. I always wondered what their wedding dresses were like, glad you got lucky!!

    Glad to hear it came out well! I found a dress for my shower from there that I love but heard horror stories about shipping. Maybe since you had a great experience I could give it a try. Did you have to pay extra shipping at the post office?
