Any suggestions or even reviews would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to keep their dresses under 100 each since there are 11 of them

Now I'm not sure why best destination weddings doesnt let me reply, but I'm lleow and lleow 2 from before who was asking Bonnie about the number of bones. I can't post thru my previous accounts cos apparently i'm not activated yet. I promised to post pictures of my dress from One-Stopos (thru DHGate). They mistakenly made it a US size 4, although I gave custom measurements. they're only reimbursing me $45 though--fingers crossed they'll actually pay it. It'll cost me at least $70-90 to hem (alteration costs in Australia are pretty high)

 

Here it is!

 

Can you lovely ladies give  me honest feedback on it-?

1. is it overwhelming on my frame, and

2. does it give me a weird boob-sticking out problem?

 

My sister (who's only seem pictures of me wearing it) says its overwhelming, and it gives me a 45 degree monoboob. She says i should try on other gown types which might suit my body better. Sheath? Slim a-line? But I do like ballgowns.

 

The bow is lopsided on the backview picture- but I might remove it altogether because they somehow stitched it to the side, and its floppy.

One-Stopos (dhgate seller) got my dress measurements wrong (which was a little disappointing)- I will now have to pay a seamstress to hem it. Luckily I'm not far from a US size 4, and for this particular gown it doesnt matter what the hip measurement is, so it fits pretty well. It has a very thick satin underlayer (two satin layers stictched together) but the outer taffeta layer is rather thin. I've posted this picture in the last post.

It did have 9 bones though, and is well structured inside.

 

I'd recommend Babyonline over One-Stopos based on what I've heard about Babyonline.

I determined I am going to purchase from a chinese website my wedding dress.  I don't want something super complex so I think that will be ably to do a great job.  I am getting Brenda by Sottero and Midgley with a change to the belt.  I have a couple questions for your girls. 

 

I see some of the same websites mentioned over and over in the post (Landy bridal, monica bridal, babyonline, and duosheng), are there any pluses or minuses for each of these vendors?  Also is Duosheng now ElegantWeddingFactory?  Do you have the contact information for Monica Birdal I can't find the webstie?

 

Thank you so much for your help!  I am  sure these answers would greatly help me and some others out there!

Vbbbtk, what a beautiful dress! I was wondering if you could please comment on the structure and boning of this dress when you get it because on their facebook page they don't show pictures of the inside of their dresses. Thank you!

wow..so many beautiful dresses!! I haven't been to the forum for the past few days because I was busy with my pro wedding pics.

Lloew3,

I think your dress is beautiful, but it is a bit too much for a small frame and a beach wedding but great for a church wedding.  Of course I am a bit bias (as you can see my dress and can guess my taste), I really love flowy dresses over a ball gown.
