Has anybody got bridesmaids dresses off I’ve found what I want but the returns policy says you can’t return if you simply don’t like it. I’m having 4 bridesmaids & don’t want to be left with 4 dresses. The postage is quite high (£27) so if I just order 1 I can’t avail of the free postage.

I would say don't use them then.. even if they give you a colour swatch, it's very difficult to judge from a 2/3 inch piece of material. You need to see the dress on the girls.. xx

I wouldn’t bother. Guaranteed they are cheap Chinese rubbish and won’t look anything like the photos, hence why they state no returns if you don’t like.
If you can’t afford quality new ones then search eBay and second hand sites, many people sell them and they’re good as new x

Hmm I'm pretty sure it's illegal to say no returns - due to distance selling you're allowed to. Unless they're pretending they're "made to order"?

I've just had a nosey and I've seen a good few of those dresses on other websites for the same price if not less. Some of the dresses they are claiming were £500 to begin with. They sound dodgy. Especially the no returns bit x

Google herdress reviews... I always do that when I'm buying somewhere I don't know x

Order 1 and if you hate it return saying size wasn't right? (Don't say it was for bridesmaids!) It's appt for postage but you'll lose even more if you order them all and hate them!

I'm pretty sure that legally they have to give you 14 days to return under Distance Selling Regulations? Sounds a bit dodgy if they're saying that's not the case?

I'd personally use JJ's House instead. They have loads of styles and colours and you can return items as long as they are off the peg (i.e. not bespoke sizing). They'll even send you a label for the package at a cost of £3 which is cheaper than sending it via Royal Mail and the cost is simply deducted from your refund. Even though postage can be pretty high, (unless you can wait for longer delivery times) the dresses are good quality and the colour range amazing. They also almost always have a 10% off offer which negates the cost of postage anyway?

Well worth a look :-)

I’m struggling with finding bridesmaid dresses at all - any other websites that you find are any good - would really appreciate some help
