Not to mention the poor fit and major alterations necessary. I ordered from somebody else so the materials are guaranteed to be different but I'm kinda freaking out now! I want BETTER quality. Haha. I'm not expecting Maggie quality though (replica designer I ordered)
Dresses from Maggie are made of better material, and therefore cost more. For example a dress from China and a Maggie dress may both be made from chiffon, but a China dress would use a polyester-chiffon where a Maggie would use a silk-chiffon which flows absolutely beautifully and looks just lighter than air. The China dress is still gorgeous and very well made, but you can definitely tell the difference in the fabric. You normally wouldn't know the difference until you got the dress though, because people typically list chiffon as chiffon (or whatever material) without specifying which type they use.
I'm not sure about David's Bridal dresses as I'm not too familiar with them, but I would assume it's the same case, especially since they are able to offer cheaper dresses. You definitely pay for what you get with a higher end dress like a Maggie (better fabric, better crystals, etc), but if that doesn't really matter to you then a China dress would work just as good!
