Easy to shop to exactly what I was looking for. The three people I messaged with were all kind and helpful. The seller I purchased from went out of her way to help with measurements. Great option for shopping for wedding dresses.

Such a great platform! I wasn't going to be able to get a dress that I wanted in time because of my quick wedding and this allowed me to buy one that was preloved by another bride and it was quick and easy.
