      I must be missing something obvious---but I don't think my REPLY button is working or something. But--this is to your question above.  :)

       

      I received my dress and I had sent the maker my measurements.  After reading the forum, I was worried the dress may run small.  To combat this I requested a corset back instead of a zipper...and I measured my height with my 5 inch heels.  That way if it was off slightly I could adjust with the corset and change out the height of my heels.  The fit of the dress seems pretty spot on.  It is a bit too long though (which is WAY better than too short). 

       

      In all...my alterations will be:

      • Minor at the bust
      • Adjust length
      • Bustle

       

      I haven't received a quote for this but I'm guessing a couple hundred.  However, even if I'd purchased a dress from a store, chances are I'd at least have those alterations needed anyway.  So the fact that my dress was less that $200 totally helps.  I never found anything in the stores even for $1000 that I like as much as I love my replica dress.

        Hello everyone....this is my first post to the board (although I have been reading it forever! haha)....

         

        Long story short, I am having a destination wedding this May in Jamaica.  After much research online and wanting to save some serious money I decided to order my dress online.  I had tried on several dresses in the bridal store to know what I liked.  I ended up ordering from Dressilyme and can't say enough about how pleased I am with the dress!  It came inside out and wrapped up tightly in a package (which I expected from my research) but overall was not too wrinkly.   I did do custom measurements and it came in pretty spot on.  I would definitely recommend going with the custom measurements because normally I wear a size 6 and based on my measurements I was closer to a 10 but still would have needed major alterations here and there. The dress is a little big in my natural waist area but I am curvy so that will be no biggie to have taken in.  The quality of the dress is impressive.  Now, I will say I never did try on dresses that were thousands of dollars but did look at many moderatley expensive gowns and I would say in comparison, this is just as nicely made.  It took about 4-5 weeks to get the dress....which I thought was very quick.

         

        Just wanted to share my experience.  If I can figure out how to post pictures I will....I took some yesterday with my cell phone.  This is a link to the dress I got... http://www.dressilym...d-9822/#reviews

            I have been to about 6 bridal shop and tried on a lot of dress's, I can't find this one anywhere!!! I called all over the state I live in with no luck!! One shop said they can order it for $200. Every dress I try on I keep comparing to this on even though I didn't try it on. I am very tempted to just order it from Jasmine's and hope for the best. UGH!!! I don't know what to do.

                   Sorry for the long post, but i need ur advice. dress #1 allure that i tried the other day is the "dress"100$ im refusing to change my mind. It looks a bit plane no blink, so i tried it with a little bling belt and loved it, well the belt was $450, but i will find something for less(suggestions are welcome)   What do you think if i get this dress but the cut area is more like dress #2 Mikaila. And i kind of want some bling... what kind of bling i can do?so it doesnt look plane, maybe some on the chest breast area going around?or will it bee too much?and will i be better off asking them to put some crystals kind of like the belt i have on when they make a dress?or should i be on the safer side and buy a belt separetely and hace seamstress in the USA do it? Thank you so much!

                   

                  1) Allure dress

                    I need you advice/suggestions

                    I tried on dress #1 and loved it, hopefully wont change my mind. It is a little bit on more of a plane side and no blink. I tried it with a belt and loved it(well belt was $450)i will sure find something for less. i also may want some blink around the breast area, maybe beading around?what can i get?and for the belt, the one that i tried with swarowski crustals looks like the one they stitched on top, jus the crystals..not sure. So will i be better off buying a belt separetly and have seamstress in usa do it, or have chini dressmaker put some bling there?i also wanted to have them chagne the shape around chest a bit.

                    #1 Allure
