It’s definitely a hit and miss situation but my friend bought hers from China and it was beautiful and high quality. My colleague also just got hers from China and despite it being squeezed into a small box, steamed out really well and looks stunning.

Definitely hit & miss, I ordered 2 from China as the 1st one I received was pretty awful, second one was okay but needed altering a lot.....I then ended up going to Wed2B and finding my dream dress for under £500......wish I hadn't bothered wasting the money on online dresses. The dress I got online that was ok quality was from Lauren Bridal.....the awful one was from Hebeos & they're customer service was awful!!

It's really a case of 'buyer beware'. Allow plenty of time, just in case it's not what you expected so that you have time to shop around. There are always outlet sales if you're looking for a bargain. X

I ordered from eBay and came from China and it was wrong size, sent me a replacement still the wrong size. Ordered from what I thought was a UK site but again it was China. Dress was totally wrong colour and so badly made I was in tears when it turned up. Definitely buyer beware.

Just check the returns policy. I ordered a bridesmaid dress, it was beautifully made but the colour was nothing like the picture so i returned and got a refund but still had to pay postage back. I would look at reviews and customer pictures too. Definitely a hit and miss.

I ordered my wedding dress on eBay from China and it is perfect honestly looks like I bought it from a shop and only cost £58 including postage but I suppose it depends on which store you order from x

I (the groom) tried to buy my wedding day shoes from China. Actually I found the perfect shoes I wanted, an expensive pair, online at a fraction of the price they would normally be and bought them without looking at the website carefully. I only realised they would be sent from China when I looked at the confirmation email.
What arrived was a completely different pair, very cheap. I reported the transaction as fraudulent and persuaded my bank to refund me the money.
I'd say, if you buy it from China, it might be fine, but know that there is a risk, so make sure you leave enough time and money to get an alternative in the UK if it doesn't work out.
