“PLEASE DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY”

Written on: 12/06/2014 by shamin (1 review written)

I ordered two dresses for my day and paid extra to receive them a week prior to my day. I did not even get one dress on time and when I finally received the dresses they are a poor quality nothing like what I saw on the website. And now they are not even replying to my emails to give me a refund. I had to hire a dress for my day. so please do not order of this company and its not a uk based company… Read Full Review

“Very poor if dress if you have to ask for exchange or...”

Written on: 07/06/2014 by SoniaKelly382 (1 review written)

I have recently bought a dress for my daughter Prom. Although the dress is of good quality, the shape of dress is not suiting at all my daughter so I ask for refund as expIained possible on the general purchase conditions. am experiencing a real pain to get an exchange or refund. 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. Do not order on this site unless being completely sure the dress will be OK!… Read Full Review

“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. DO NOT… Read Full Review

“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”

Written on: 26/05/2014 by Kamari118 (1 review written)

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. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS SITE… Read Full Review

“Very impressed,wonderful dress”

Written on: 24/04/2014 by AmyN. (1 review written)

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

“completely different colour and way to big in size”

Written on: 21/04/2014 by buddyjones.attwell (1 review written)

Ordered my daughter a prom dress and its a complete disaster! The top of the dress looks nothing like the nice colour gold it looks in the picture, it's a cheap and nasty yellow colour and the dress size is suppose to be a 4! I'm a size 8 and its big on me!! The customer service has been dam right appalling! And think there must be only 1 person running the service because no matter what time of day I always speck to the same person! And sometimes feels like I'm talking to a child... I said to… Read Full Review

“Do not use this company. If you are happy with your...”

Written on: 20/04/2014 by loopylou1998 (1 review written)

Do not use this company. If you are happy with your garment then you are lucky, if not their aftersales service is appalling. My dress arrived in the wrong colour - white instead of ivory - which I would have accepted if the dress had been well made. I had exposed bones in the bodice and the interfacing was on show. When I asked for a full refund this was refused and I was told to take the dress to a tailor. To be expected to do that when the dress cost almost £96 I think is disgraceful… Read Full Review

“My amazing wedding dress :) ”

Written on: 18/04/2014 by Collier190 (1 review written)

I ordered my wedding dress ten decided to read reviews on this site about diydress.co.uk I was a little nervous about what I woul recieve but when it came I had no regrets, it's beautiful. More than I could have asked for, the problem is most people that have a good experience don't tend to write reviews so you will find a lot more bad reviews than good ones. They were always online to chat to if I needed to know anything, delivery was prompt. Very pleased bride to be :)… Read Full Review

Waw!! I ordered a pearl pink lovely prom dress but was also nervous as people were discouraging me for doing that and at some point my bank cautioned me for such a transaction as they felt this company had no face and you cannot even locate it and the people that you deal with keep changing their names: that is scary I tell you, especially when you have paid the company your money - hey!!! However, when the dress arrived I asked my aunt to open it for me - guess what, it was gorgeous and I would not change it for anything. Honestly I am a happy customer. Cheers girls.

How did you manage to get a refund? Tell me your secret? I have been going back and forth. A different person every time. Its infuriating. We ordered a test dress, it came the wrong colour and size. Any help really appreciated.

“Don't do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Written on: 20/03/2014 by loveprada (1 review written)

To start with this company is VERY helpful, but that’s because the want your money. I ordered a dress, giving exact measurements. To be fair, the finish was good and I was pleased the quality. When I tried the dress on it was 20cm too short (it’s a full length dress!) I contacted them, saying it was too short. They asked for pictures, which I sent, together with a video from the back of my neck all the way to the floor, following a tape measure the whole way. The dress stopped at 130cm and… Read Full Review

I ordered to dresses , one fits perfect the other is too small at the bust . After countless email back and forth these people tell me I don't know how to measure a dress so I take it to a professional tailor who assured me the bust size was not what I'd ordered or what was stated on their label.. I sent them another picture with the measurements and now they say what gives this person authority and power to say the measurement diy made the dress to is wrong? 45" bust is measured in the same… Read Full Review

“i stupidly believed the bad reviews ”

Written on: 18/03/2014 by MRSKG2B (1 review written)

the worst thing you can do is believe everything you read, the day my dress was due to arrive I though id have a look at some reviews. they completely ruined the experience of buying a wedding dress. I received a text saying my dress had been delivered and I was dreading it, I got home and opened the package and instantly was crying in fear of what it would be like thinking it would be made of polyester and a poor copy of what was advertised, I waited till the next morning to try it on with my… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/04/2014

Good for you. But the reason we write poor reviews is because we have received poor and shoddily made dresses from this rip off company. Then when you complain they refuse to honor their obligation to put right or refund.
They have ruined many special occasions and I hope yours isn't one of them
