Shopping for a deb dress can be equal parts amazing and totally stressful experience. Trying on several dresses a day for a few solid weekends is enough to wear you out, especially if she can't find the perfect fit. While you could virtually try on thousands of gowns, your other option is to shop online for your dream dress, especially for those who are looking to find a dress on a budget.
Don't think it's possible to find the perfect gown online? Here are some tips and advice on how to do it right. It's actually easier than you think!
What should you know before starting her online search (i.e. measurements, the type of shoe she will be wearing, etc.)?
The first thing you should know is what type of style you like for the deb. The dress can really set the tone and mood for the entire day and should coordinate appropriately.
What are some potential pitfalls when going online to purchase a deb dress?
Unfortunately, there are a lot of scammers out there, so it is important to be cautious when it comes time to buying the actual deb dress online. Check reviews of the company. A lot of site use photos from famous designers. The picture may look breathtaking, but the actual dress will look nothing like it. In addition, use secure payment options when buying online.
What kind of return policy should I look for on a deb dress?
It is common for sellers not to offer returns. In fact, you will find most sellers use policies like "All Sales Are Final." In cases where a seller does have a return policy, then it is standard for them to implement a few percent restocking fee. So, no need for alarm.
Is it more difficult to find what you're looking for when you haven't tried anything on?
Yes, I think the best thing you can do before shopping online is to try on some dresses in person. Get a feel for the type of style and fit that you prefer. Cap sleeves vs. strapless, or empire vs. A-line, etc.
Rule number one is be patient. When looking for a dress online, it takes time to find the perfect one. Eventually, the one you're looking for will pop up.
