Just want to share some positive experience of cooperating with lightinthebox.
Thank you for taking the time to write about this store, though I'd heard of it and visited a few times, I never realized they custom size stuff there. I'm a little sore though, because my hip measurement is like 1 inch larger than the max. I see that your skirt looks really flowy, but how close was the bust and hip to your actual measurements? It's difficult to tell how much ease you have because of your fabulous bouquet: I wish I had known about this website weeks ago.
We have a family wedding next week and I was in despair over finding a dress that fit my weird body. I finally settled and got a dress that I just barely feel okay about. I will definitely keep them in mind for the next event. They have stunning evening gowns! The dresses were very snug and I would opt for custom sizing, if you do not find that you fall with in their size range.
I'm so glad to see you blogging again! The dresses are amazing. I know you will look stunning in them! Thank you for sharing. Your post worth of reading. Waiting for new posts. Hey Diana, thanks for this post! I was considering buying some things from Light in a Box, but quickly became skeptical because, all the models were very thin Asian women. I didn't think that their "Large" and "XL" sizes would be true to their titles.
You are sooo pretty in this. In fact, I honestly think that the dress looks better on you than on the model…. This is one of the only places I can find actual real-life photographs of a LitB dress — looks great on you, and great review, so thanks! Seeing yours has alleviated my worries quite a bit as it looks lovely and easily compares with stuff in the shops. I saw on the site that all of the dresses have built in bras. I asked someone on the live chat part of the LITB site about the bras and they said they were sturdy and reinforced by underwire.
I was wondering if you could give me your opinion on this for strapless and one strap dress options, as wearing an actual strapless bra is not an option for either one of us! Ok i just ordered my wedding dress and bridesmaid dress from LITB and im scared ive been scammed.
Still havnt recieved anything! My experience was that they were fine. They seem very keen to keep customers happy, so if you have any issues send them an email. Looks like LitB worked out well for you—that dress looks very nice!
Just for people who are looking on more info on lightinthebox: Their customer services have been great and reassured me all along the way. You have seriously put my mind at ease reading this. The only thing I am worried about is that I may get stung by a hefty customs charge when the goods enter the UK! Although LITB have assured me that they will label the dress as a gift so that the chance of a customs charge will be reduced.
We will have to wait and see. The dress is due to arrive early June Thanks for your detailed review, i can see that it has helped so many people. Good luck in your search! Thank you for your review. Wowzers Lilli, you look amazing! Thank you so much for writing this review. I stumbled upon this while looking into LITB and you have put my mind at ease! I have recently ordered a corset from them for my wedding day and am eagerly awaiting its arrival now so fingers crossed it fits!
Lilli, This is a really great post; we are so happy you had a good experience shopping with LightintheBox! Feel free to have a look: Had my bridesmaids dress made by LITB. Taylor who took it in i lost some weight between ordering and receiving the dress said the quality was fantastic.
Those dresses come from the same factories. You cut out the stores. Thank you so much! I am looking at Light in the Box to order an evening gown for a Navy Ball, but have been really concerned with the legitimacy of the wesite.
Your review is fantastic, and makes me feel much better about ordering after seeing the quality of the work. I am an acomplished seamstress, so quality was a concern. I could of course make my own dress, but sometimes ordering something special is more exciting! I just impulse bought a wedding dress thats not like me and after found patchy reviews myself and was starting to worry myself. Perphaps it a few hiccups and random cases? Whilst I agree the dress looks very pretty on.
I think that you were lucky. Light in the box seems to be a gamble. Or in my experience a poor version of the lovely one advertised in the pictures. I recently ordered a beautiful two tier chapel length with scalloped edging from them. Stunning in the photos. But when I gig it out to try it on. It was poorly made, the comb from the veil broke off as soon as I pushed it into my hair.
The laced edging was falling off. Put md right off buying from them again. But I guess you really do get what you pay for! I have just been duped by this company. I ordered a wedding shrug and its sleeves were too short.
I returned it and had to pay postage charges. They refunded my order and I ordered a longer sleeved shrug. Lightinthebox did not at any stage make these likely charges clear. I will never use them again and suggest you find a UK supplier for your orders instead! Some people are just luckier than others. I will never order from lightinthebox.
This is from my horrible experience. Good for you that you love the site and love your dress, but I suggest to whoever is ordering from them to be absolutely sure you want to buy from them because their return policy is crap.
Somehow I missed that memo. High quality, color was dead on I ordered Royal Blue , all materials exactly as stated on the website. I had no customer issues either. It is a satin dress with organza overlay and one strap over the left shoulder. After reading the research from Lili and not finding anything myself about labor issues I would feel comfortable ordering another dress. So I am looking to order a super cute chiffon bridesmaid dress off of Light In The Box and I am just super nervous because I have heard some terrible stories but also some really good stories!
Your dress looks absolutely beautiful. The detail on the bodice is gorgeous and the color looks so pretty on you. I wanted to throw in my two cents and tell you that I ordered a wedding dress from lightinthebox.
When I tried to return it they made it very complicated and were slow to respond and unhelpful. Light In The Box Shoes: Even Etsy failed me. The reviews though were… patchy. This is what I ordered: And this is the dress, straight out of the box: Can you see how impressed I am?
The dress is finished beautifully: You look super cute and hot. These are all gorgeous What a great, comprehensive review! S- the Leah May dress is drop-dead gorgeous. Lilli, the dress is gorgeous and you look positively divine. This is so lovely! So excited to see your wedding dress down the track!!! Anyway, the dress is beautiful, hope you enjoy the wedding as well as your own big day.
Did you by any chance experience anything like this? I hope you end up loving your corset! Thank you, I just impulse bought a wedding dress thats not like me and after found patchy reviews myself and was starting to worry myself.
