No but here's a currency converter I use all the time.

Just plug in the value and make sure the "from" "to" is what you want. Even though they're in China they show prices as euros.

You can't try it on. You basically have to trust their sizes (which seems to have worked out ok for most brides) or get a custom size which can't go too wrong.

 

For the currency - I did euros to US dollars.

Hey ladies. I just ordered a dress from a designer in China. It is a bridesmaid dress. It looks just like the picture and is made extremely well! The only trouble is...I'm not sure that I like the dress in the color that I chose. Luckily they have a return policy. I was aprehensive about ordering a dress from China but after seeing how close the real thing is to the picture and awesome quality of the dress, I am going to order my wedding dress from one! If I can figure out how to post pictures I will....

The knock-offs are cheaper because they don't have to waste time designing anything if they can just steal someone else's design.

It's also semi-illegal to buy knockoffs. I say semi, because some of the designs are not unique enough for trade dress laws to apply, plus they usually don't prosecute consumers in the US, especially if you only own one knockoff.

Better off buying an original at a sample sale, imo.
ITA with everything you said...

Honestly this forum should probably take a standpoint on fakes/counterfeit items and disallow posting of links to websites that sell fakes.

Yep - I ordered this one from Duosheng the whole bodice is beaded and I am excited/freaking out as it arrives this month. I will post pics once I have it.
