Avoid buyin from this site.i purchased my daughters prom dress from here for £153 and it ripped up the seam after she had it on for 3 hours! It ruined her night completely as she had to leave her prom.i contacted them and their response was that I should get it mended and sell it to a friend or sell it online! Disgraceful service and disgraceful product!… Read Full Review

I wish i had of read the reviews first. Like yourself i got totally ripped of by this company. My daughters prom dress came and shed of looked better in a bin liner and the dress had so many faults! Ive tried and tried to get my money back and they have flat-out refused saying the dress is ok. I have gone to my credit card company who said they will help me sort it to get my money back do fingers crossed. I would suggest that you to call your card company and explain to them what has happened as they maybe able to help you.

“Avoid!!!!!”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by fvTrujillo1967 (1 review written)

Having ordered my daughter a dress from here for her prom i wish i never did. It came and should have been lilac with a silver sequin bodice, instead it was lilac and gold sequins which look really tacky. It is 2" too big all over and 12" too long! I provided the exact measurements and notified them of this. They asked for pictures with the tape measure laid on certain parts of the dress which clearly showed that it was too big. the response i got was it appears to be the right size and the… Read Full Review

I really really wish I had read the reviews on here before I handed over £174 to this company. I quickly realised I had made a big mistake, I tried to cancel the order and was told that the use very expensive materials and therefor they would only give me a £20 refund for delivery!!!!! .... WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH In fear of loosing all my money I proceeded with the order.... I finally received the dress and it was not the dress advertised on the website, I spent time submitting my custom… Read Full Review

Hi. I'm having a very similar problem with this company. Did you manage to get a refund?

Sadly not.

They keep telling me that because it's a custom made dress they cannot refund me, ignoring the following points:

1. It's not even the same dress advertised on the website

2. It's covered in red thead marks

I have read other websites that review this company and they are known for not legally using other manufacturers images of dresses, over pricing and creating knock offs.

“Pointless providing measurements”

Written on: 28/06/2014 by dbMcMahon171 (1 review written)

I ordered my daughters prom dress and provided measurements, was reluctant ti use the company but my daughter loved the dress, anyway j have just collected it from our local dress makers as DIY sent a dress 2 inch bigger everywhere than what we provided, cost me more money. Dont use them if you want to be happy with the product. Should be called do what they want.com and because they're actually in china, there's not much we can do. I knew when it wouldn't accept PayPal there was going to be a… Read Full Review

Please do not order from this company. Against my better judgement I did and am now being ignored by them. Even though I paid extra for my daughter's prom dress to get delivered before her prom, unfortunately they failed to deliver on time and I had to go and buy another one. I have tried to contact them about a refund and they are completing ignore me… Read Full Review

“Terrible Terrible Terrible ”

Written on: 23/06/2014 by Gunnbi26 (1 review written)

I was very impressed with the choices offered on the website. I finally found the dresses, rather expensive but worth it. I provided my measurements as asked for, the measurements were done by a professional. The dresses turned up as long as the height head to toe, a huge mistake for people who perceive them selves as professionals. Furthermore, the dresses were nothing like in the pictures. I have contacted the company to try and resolve this but to no avail, they keep making silly excuses. I… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/11/2014

I absolutely agree! I am on the same boat, I ordered two dresses for my engagement party and they turned out to be disastrous! They were too long, too big, a hole in the armpit for no reason, distorted inbuilt bras, i looked like a freak when i wore it with the left bra folding over into a straight line, the fitting was wrong, they used cheap materials, the corset boning was sticking out and digging into my skin, there's no smoothness to the dresses. They were nothing like the model pictures they advertised. I ended up buying a new dress. I contacted them about a refund and they've been going round in circle saying i should take it to a local tailor to adjust and they can't see anything wrong with them. If i wanted to pay extra money to a tailor i would have asked them to make them in the first place! I have asked for a UK number and address as i would like to take it further and they have totally refused to acknowledge any of my requests and keep saying they can't see anything wrong but will refund 15pounds for the hole in the armpit and hope that i understand. It is so frustrating! The dresses cost a lot of money and I had to pay express charge on top! I'm up for taking this further.

In the exact same situation...2 dresses that i will never end up wearing. They even have the audacity to suggest I sell it online!
I have tried tirelessly to get a refund and have just been going round in circles for a whole month with emails back and forth, them refusing and stating they think the dresses are 'beautiful'- They are not, they are awful cheap and plastic. I am so frustrated and angry as I have just thrown away a good 250 pounds down the drain.
They do not even operate from the UK, we must be able to take this further! any suggestions how?

“If you have ordered anything....cancel your order now!!”

Written on: 19/06/2014 by SteveNottingham (1 review written)

Do not believe the good reviews - they are fake. They are low quality Chinese counterfeiters with no UK office. The pictures on their website are not their dresses or models but the original manufacturers. They will send you something of such low quality it will look so very cheap and fall to bits upon use. When you complain they are full of rubbish. They might offer you a refund providing you pay £30 postage back to China, risk import tax and, given that they are parasitic criminals, say that… Read Full Review

I have recently bought a dress for my daughter Prom.

They have refused although photos have been provided. Very good and quick to take the order but now a real pain when a problem arises.

“Awful,badly made, be warned!”

Written on: 01/06/2014 by gfJacobs277 (1 review written)

Received my daughter's made to measure prom dress on Thursday. What a joke, it is terrible.So badly made, I can't begin to explain! Sequins hanging off, jewels and beading tarnished and sewn on back to front. Uneven hemline, marks on the shirt. I could go on but you get the picture. It is certainly not made to measure, it is far to big for her. I have e-mailed the company, with little joy, refusing a full refund, offering instead to make another dress in a different factory and told me to… Read Full Review

“Horrible workmanship , appalling customer service”

Written on: 28/05/2014 by Alecs85 (2 reviews written)

Do not waste your time with this website. I ordered a dress that was very simple and got a cut up dress that had pieces of material sticking out of it. The customer service was very nice until I actually got the dress. They they pushed me between 6 different people, all saying the dress looks like on the website. All people (men and women) whom I have asked to compare the website to the end product were shocked by the difference, yet 6 people on their team could not spot any difference.

“Don't go there!!!”

Written on: 26/05/2014 by Sbasi (1 review written)

Alarm bells started to ring when the dress didn't arrive on time and when it did it came in a small bag!!!! As we opened it sequins and beads fell to the floor. The dress should have had a completely beaded bodice front and back, as the picture on the web site showed. This was not what was sent. The bodice was so badly sewn, no symmetry, loose beading and sequins falling off and huge gaps of netting, only a fifth of the bodice was covered leaving two very wonky breast pads in full few.

The same thing happened to me. I ordered a dress, it came in a bag, pieces of it were cut as if with a knife yet the bag it came in was in perfect condition, which makes me believe the dress was cut before they even wrapped it. I paid 100 GBP, they offered to give me a 5 GBP discount on my next order. It has been the greatest disappointment ever with regards to online shopping. I posted my review at the time but I see they still have new victims. You should report the website and have the company reviewed. I did this last year but it seems they are still up and running. Somebody needs to stop these people.

“DO NOT BUY OFF THIS SITE”

My Mum has ordered 2 bridesmaids dresses from this site. They took bust size, shoulder size and arm size. At first they were very helpful but then they started to get rude. The dresses arrived and all I can say is THESE ARE NOT MADE TO ORDER. They are shoddy workmanship, the jewels started to fall off when I was trying mine on, the arms kept falling down and the dresses are way to big.

I got my dress earlier than I expected and it is absolutely perfect. I was only disappointed when I had to pay 20 pounds postage while the dress is no more than 50 pounds. But that dress is much more worth I think! When I tried it first time I forgot about the price. Absolutely gorgeous!!! I'm very happy of the lovely dress I received and their quick responds for my every contact. Really good service:) … Read Full Review
