Definitely post pics when you get it!! I'd be very curious to know your thoughts on what you receive. I'm also curious - did you order a standard size, or did you do specific measurements? I want champagne colour or the blush pink - did you go with white? If not, how did you decide on the colour? Looking at the "sample" colours on the site I'm worried about how close the dress would be to the colours they have posted.


I am patiently waiting here for UPS to come deliver! Already had to call and argue with them as the online tracking states that delivery was attempted....but it was not!

Hopefully it will come soon, going to have dinner with my three sisters and want them there when I try it on!

I chose an ivory color and did the custom sizing. I am hoping that it is perfect!!

Will post when I have a chance to see it and try it on!

I got my dress!!

I was shocked to see that the box was so tiny, but they said that they try to fit it in a small box to save in shipping so that was okay with me! I ended up having to pay about $23 extra on delivery...not sure if anyone else has had to do this?

I left to my sisters house to meet up with my bridal party(my three sisters) and all had a good laugh about the box....we pulled it out to hang it up and air out before dinner, and it was perfect! Not a wrinkle on it!! So I tried it on!

It fits like a glove!! The lace is different than what the picture shows on the website but it is really pretty! I had it custom made for my measurements and changed the colour from white to ivory and I am very happy with the colour that it is!!

Feeling so relieved! Also, the shipping was crazy fast, the whole process really! I ordered on February 9, and it was shipping on February 26 and here two days later!

I can't figure out how to attach a picture on here though! I will work on it....

    Wow! that's gorgeous!! ok so ton of questions! lol  what style is it based on? are you happy with the quality of it? how close to size is it? do you need to have further alterations done? when you look at the style you ordered and the style you received, are they in line with what you wanted? would you change it if you could??

     

    I think the dress is stunning, and now you've got my curiousity aroused. I'm going to go back and look at their website.

     

    Thanks so much for the pics!!

    I attached a picture of the dress I ordered and of the actual dress I got.

    Before I ever even thought about doing this, I had tried on dresses at two different bridal stores. I was having a really hard time with how much money one dress could cost! And to even fathom doing a trash the dress after spending $1500-2000 on a dress!! Anyways, the dresses that I thought I would love ended up looking horrible on me, and then I found a dress that I really liked but wanted to make changes to which would have cost me even more!n

    Then I found this thread....I didn't even know that ordering from China was even a possibility! I searched and searched, and found this style which is almost identical to the dress I really liked but it had the sweetheart neckline which I really loved! When I first found this dress, it was on sale....but after thinking about it and looking at it multiple times a day, when I was finally ready to order, it was back to full price of over $600. I wasn't ready to pay that, so I thought my experience would end there....but I am persistent, and two weeks later it went on sale again! I ordered immediately!

    Input my order in on February 9, and chose the cheapest shipping method. My wedding isn't until October so I wasn't in any hurry. Amy at Dressilyme was in contact with me almost immediately. I had asked for pictures prior to sending and she said that they couldn't do that but to feel confident that it would be perfect. She also said that it would be 30-45 days to make and 10 days to ship. Fine with me. In February 26, I got confirmation that my dress was completed and had been shipped! And it arrived at my door on February 28!! Wow!

    I did order it custom to my measurements, which turned out amazing! The dress literally fits like a glove! The only part is that the corset back at the too comes almost together, but it think if I wear a bra or undergarment under it it will close into the v shape that a corset back should be. The original is in white,
    and I ordered mine in ivory. The color is perfect. The actually quality of the dress is amazing, just like any dress I tried on in a bridal store! Maybe a few stray threads here and there but that it easy enough to fix!
    The lace on the dress is definitely different than that in the original, but it is very pretty. I think I like the lace in the picture better, but I am still happy with what I received.

    The only alteration that really needs to be done is a bustle.

    Also, I read somewhere that people dresses smelled funny...there is no smell on my dress at all! Lol

    Overall, I would definitely order from this site again! My bridesmaids are checking out dresses they might like and I will probably order them from here as well.

    Funniest part is that when my fiancé and I spoke about wedding dress budget, he suggested it be $500, to which I laughed and laughed....but now who has the last laugh!? All in I paid $360 with custom sizing, shipping, and I had to pay another $20 when it arrived for customs.

    Best thing I did, now I can't wait to wear it on our we doing day!
