After all the hassle with my dress it's finally come into the shop and i HATE it, i nearly passed out while wearing it cos i had worked myself up that much over it image

I desperately need to get another dress (im a size 22!) no more then £300, does anybody know of any legitimate websites where i can get one from? i know of light in the box but are there anymore?

many thanks xx

    are you maybe better finding a dressmaker and asking if its possible to make what you want on your budget? could be an easier option, and you'll be comfier knowing you're getting exactly what you want? xx

    There is a section of plus size wedding dresses even from light inthebox

  • Hi,

    I agree with Jenda. I would go to a reputable retailer and get the dress tailored to fit your shape. It will take away the worry of your dress arriving and you hating it.

    Good luck!

    I'm not sure f the costs involved but what about getting it made for you from scratch? Talk to some dress makers before hand with a strict budget talked about from the start. What's wrong with the dress you've got now? Is there any way that it could be altered to look/fit better/nicer?

    I had 2 dresses in the end - I ordered one monsoon one from ebay for £60 but realised that empire line doesn't flatter my figure and ended up getting a Dessy one from the Sandals collection - it was only £400 at full price - they go up to US size 28 which is a UK 26 I think. I'm not sure how much the others in the collection are but I had so many compliments on my Dessy 1021 dress - I'm sure there must be others in the collection for around £300.
