Serafina is a one-of-a-kind shopping reference blog dedicated to locating and compiling the designers and shops that cater to petite women. Here, a bride gives you the 411 on buying a gown online. (She got hers at JCrew!)Â
Â I liked her advice on choosing a gown:
If you choose to purchase a dress online, I recommend purchasing all of the dresses you like and have them shipped. Send the no-goes back; youâ€™ll get a full refund. I also strongly recommend choosing the ones that you are unsure of, too. I didnâ€™t like the dress I wore when I saw it online. But I went ahead and ordered it anyhow just to be safe. When I received the dress it was perfect and exactly what I needed. You just never know.
It follows the same rules of shopping at boutiques: Even if you’re not sure you like a gown on the hanger, try it on!! You never know what will end up looking good on you.
