    So many fake comments on this topic, as you can see so many china people who work for this company has given good reports about themself

    I orderd a PS3 from this company and the games was fake and the system didnt even work !!

    I tried to get my money back from them by putting a paypal claim in and I LOSE the claim , and lost the money.

    I have also found some bad reports on this forum -

    My Rational
    Well I considered long and hard buying a dress from LightintheBox and I just ordered mine yesterday. I saw a lot of good and a lot of bad reviews. I figured I can take the risk with a cheaper dress and if it doesn't work out I can sell it on ebay. I think one thing you need to appreciate is that if you order your dress in a store it comes from the same factory as the LightintheBox dress, they are ALL made in China (see Bridal Bargains book by the Fields), so probability of them being screwed up, being low quality, whatever is the same. I KNOW people who ordered dresses at salons and they came in in wrong sizes, wrong fabrics and etc. sometimes you get a size too big and then it means you have to shell out at least $300 on alterations, but if you get too small you are screwed. The Fields in their book tell you that dresses are lazer cut en masse, so I figured, I have smaller chance of a screw up if I get a cookie cut dress rather than sending them my exact measurements, the dress I ordered should just fit me, if not, I might have to lose 5 pounds but I would love to do that and considering I am 20 pounds heavier than I was just a couple of years ago, I know I can. Fingers crossed.

    Along with the dress I ordered a bunch of accessories which would cost at least $100 more in US retail than in China. So my $60 shipping was basically earned back, considering I get the accessories, because they are all one size fits all so little worry about them not working out. My dress was $200 so not terribly bad. You can also find cute dresses at Jcrew and Nordstrom, they won't have anything puffy with corsets, but they have some nice ones for just a few hundred dollars.

    I will return and update this once I actually receive my order. Good luck girls!

    If it's any help, my sister got married at the end of November and her dress was from light in the box. It arrived very quickly and was beautiful, a lot nicer than some of the ones she had tried in bridal shop and only cost a fraction of those too.

    She also ordered our bridesmaid dresses from there and they turn out to be very good quality and the were a perfect fit as she had ordered them made to measure.
    I was dubious about these type of companies before but after seeing how well my sisters dress turned out, I am ordering one for my wedding next year.

    I think the issue is they are very inconsistent in the quality. I personally would not risk my dress from there, it's just not worth it.

    hi there, we ordered my sisters wedding dress from them, and ordered by size not personal measurements as these from what i have read come up wrong fairly often. Go by dress size and if you do need to do measurements add an extra inch as this can be pinned in if worst comes to worst. it was a beautiful dress and at 110 looked as if it cost that with an extra 0 on the end. happy shopping!

    Mine has arrived too and I couldnt be happier, it is lovely, I have made a few changes (white zip in champagne dress!!!) plus I ordered the bigger size (thought if it was bigger rather than smaller it could be changed) so needs a few inches taken of the waste, but nothing I cant handle.

    All in all pleased as punch and all for under 100. yipee
    I am pleased to give hairdressing help or advice, but a thank you doesn't go a miss.

    Many companies have google alerts set up so the minute their company is mentioned they can get straight to it. What I think is sad is that they have a feedback score but still need to comment in places like this. This company is so big it shouldn't need to send out people with 1 post to give a good review when someone is saying otherwise. If they are that good, why do they need to worry about 1 or 2 people who aren't happy? You can't please everyone.

    I bought a mobile phone for my daughter from lightinthebox, good value for money and good customer service. I have however since returned the phone as my daughter broke the touch screen and the company offered to fix it for a very reasonable price, the phone has yet to be returned to me though. communication between me and the company has been good so i`m not worried.....yet

    Sorry in advance if this attracts more of the dreaded spam...

    I read thru this thread and many others on various forums when needing three childrems bm/fg dresses. The reason i went with the company mentioned is for two reasons. One, if the goods arrived, i would make a substantial saving. Two, I was in a position where I could afford to lose 'X' amount and still have something as a standby. To overcome this amount i could afford to lose, I ordered the first dress (for the baby) and awaited its arrival. I actually breathed a sigh of relief when it arrived. I couldn't really fault it and it was the right colour etc. I have since seen the same colour swatch on my mothers computer and it looks a lot darker so maybe a tip would be to get the brightness right up before looking at colour swatches as they are more likely to be accurate then.. (not if tehy get the colour wrong obviously like others have mentoned but I hope you understand what i mean?!)

    The other things is that I ordered during chinese new year and expected excuse after excuse and delay after delay. Neither came. I received my goods within four weeks of ordering. Same with the second 'batch' that I ordered. I was more nervoius second time around cos I knew what i was expecting and thankfully, four weeks later, I received my beloved dresses. the two lots were sent by different couriers each time but the dresses were fab. This doesn't neccesarily mean i would reccommend them though. I know how apprehensive i felt when waiting for them and realised that if it wasn't what i wanted, there was little protection i had. If you use a credit card, you may receve extra protection under credit terms but not sure how far that expands in terms of geography. I wouldn't wish those nerves on anyone but I should also confess that I have a nervous disposition at the best of times. I will be going thru all this again to order my wedding dress but i am getting that from milly.. on a reccomendation. I think that while i was willing to take the gamble for childrens dresses, and over the moon that i did, I am not sure I would put the same faith in them for an adults/custom sized dress. I ordered the childrens standard sizes as i know mine will grow in the next six months.

    Anyway, just thought i would share...

    Lolol, yep, cell phones look lovely in wedding pictures. Think they may be a little stiff to wear however.

    Dear Mary2011,

    Thank you so much for making your 4 posts in such a small amount of time. The ladies (and men) using this forum to chat about WEDDING planning will find the phone you advertised so useful in planning their special day. Do you do them in white or ivory to match a wedding dress? My colour scheme is lilac and ivory and all trims are silver so I would need a phone that matched in exactly. I would probably need one for the Groom, Bestman and Ushers too (again...must match my colour scheme) so we could keep in contact during that long walk down the aisle.

    Anyway, thanks again for being so helpful and for your kind offer to book my hotel and pick me up from the airport (is this to collect my phone?) I'm truly touched
