    I ordered my dress off ebay last week and am feeling very nervous about my purchase. It's the Sophia dress by jcrew. I got it new with tags for a fantastic price ($74USD). I called Jcrew with my measurements before ordering it and it should fit. I'm just worried it's going to have a stain or rip on it or something.

    Any reassurance from others who've ordered their dress on ebay?

      I think with Ebay it all depends on the seller. Did you check to make sure they have a good rating? Or why they were selling the dress?
      Hope it turns out great. Maybe you can take it back to Jcrew if something is wrong??

        I did research the seller. She had a 100% rating and had sold a lot of items before. It's already on its way. I'm in Canada so can't return it to Jcrew or to the seller.

          My MoH bought her wedding dress off Ebay. It was INCREDIBLE! She bought it from a vendor in China.

            I know so many brides who found there dress then bounght it on ebay and it worked out perfectly for them. That is such a great deal would be silly not to pass it up.

              I bought two on ebay from a store somewhere up north that was no longer going to carry the lines. They both came promptly and were in PERFECT condition! I couldn't have been happier - except that I wasn't as in love with the dress I wanted to wear for the wedding - long story, now they're both up for sale.

                  I wouldn't worry about it! It sounds like plenty of people have had wonderful experiences ordering from ebay and if she has an outstanding rating everything will be fine! And plus in the grand scheme of everything if you don't like it or it is not a perfect fit you can (a) resell it or (B) use it in a TTD session! And for $74 you can't go wrong and could still afford to get another dress if this one doesn't work out!

                    I have only heard good things from people ordering off ebay as well. I am looking there too, but I am like you and am a little nervous. Plus everyone tells me I need to try on the dress, but I feel like if I found a good one at a good price online I would be willing to risk it. I am sure it will all work out!

                      Oh hunnie don't sweat it! I found my dress on ebay (I'm all about being frugal!) and it's PERFECT! I actually just found another one like 5 minutes ago that is a bit more formal, so I think I'll wear that at the ceremony and my other one at our AHR. As long as it's from a reputable seller, and you've checked the measurements it's going to be fine!
                      I was freaking out before mine came too.....what if it isn't packed right? What if it's stained? But it all worked out okay! Worst comes to worst you're only out 74 bucks. There are way worse things that could happen, yeah? Think positive, I'm sure it'll be gorgeous!
                      There is no better gift that can be given than the gift of ones self.
