we're looking to get married next year and I was looking for the first time on EBay at the dresses on there. There's lots from China on there which are extremely cheap and are made to measure. Now, one of my friends got one of these for her wedding and it was perfect but is there a catch to this since they're so cheap? Ie. unethical working conditions etc?
Sorry if I sound naive but if it's a genuine cheap deal then I'm in but I'm a bit wary!
wrong side of the forums, but I can tell you why they are so cheap: Made in china. There are tons of websites where they are even cheaper. They are made in factories where they have examples on the floor and hundreds of workers replicate it. Probably not paid very well and maybe a couple of minors working there..
From first-hand experience with someone who did exactly what you're considering, I would do it in a heartbeat. The dress fit her perfectly, was far cheaper than anywhere else, and the level of communication concerning fitting her was very high and inviting.
Just make sure to order the dress in plenty of time to allow for any minor alterations that may need to be made (as with all dresses).
In short, in my opinion, the route you're considering is the best route to go.
I would personally try it on before purchasing, esp when its your wedding dress. It might cost you more to alter the dress over ebay than going to a local shop and purchasing one.
Nah. Unless we're comparing an abnormally expensive ebay dress with the cheapest dress found in a brick and mortar store and assuming the ebay dress would need extensive alterations and the brick and mortar off-the-rack dress would fit perfectly, it ain't happening.
There are literally tens of thousands of wedding dresses on ebay for less than $100.
