I found the prettiest dress on preownedweddingdresses.com--it's a reputable dress reseller, never worn, CHEAP! (under 600), and just my size. My body is pretty easy to dress and the cut of the dress is loose and not very form-fitting, so I'm not worried about it looking misplaced on my body. I know I'll obviously have to get it altered (I'm short and have small breasts!), but my mother does alterations, so I wouldn't have to pay for alterations.
What do you ladies think? Do you think it's a good idea to order a dress that you've never tried on? I just have this incredible gut feeling about this dress--it's beautiful, just my style, and incredibly affordable. I would go find it in a boutique and try it on first, but I haven't been able to find it in stores (must be an older design/lesser-known designer?). What are your experiences with online dress shopping?
