LightInTheBox.com Dress Review + $500 Little Black Dress giveaway



With homecoming right around the corner, you’ve probably been on the hunt for the perfect fitting dress or at least your teenagers have been. If you haven’t found that perfect fit yet and don’t want to pay a fortune to have one tailored to your size, LightInTheBox.com is a hot shopping spot for all homecoming needs.

In addition to their fabulous selection of dresses, they also carry tons of other homecoming items; handbags, earrings, shoes, hair pieces, even false eyelashes and nail art. So LightInTheBox.com can literally be your one stop shop, which is good news for mom and dad. Plus, they deliver to more than 200 countries worldwide so you don't even have to leave your house to get your absolute perfect dream dress.


The perfect dress

At LightInTheBox.com you can order the dress of your dreams with a price to match. They have a huge selection of dresses for under $100, with some starting at less than $50. Their beautiful selection of dresses are available in standard sizes ranging from size 2 to size 26w or you can order your dress custom fitted to your personal measurements (for just $26 extra). Providing them with your custom measurements is a great way to ensure your dress fits perfectly when it arrives for your special day. And, they'll even show you exactly how to measure during the ordering process for the perfect fit. Because of the many styles and numerous color choices in each dress, there is literally something for everyone at LightInTheBox.com. It really is a fun place to shop.

What people (like me) are saying?

When offered the opportunity to review one of these stunning dresses, I jumped at the chance. I’ve never seen a site with so many options as far as styles, price ranges, colors, and of course the option to have each piece custom fitted. That for me is huge, as I’m pretty petite and always have a hard time finding special occasion wear that actually fits.

I decided to see what the buzz was about so I ordered the Empire Sweetheart Chiffon Dress. After receiving the dress, I can honestly say this dress is everything I expected (and more). And even though I am a bit old for homecoming, I did wear this dress to a formal fashion event in Beverly Hills and I was definitely the belle of the ball. Everyone kept asking “who” I was wearing as if it was a designer piece – it was awesome.

I ordered my dress in black so I had the option to accessorize however I wanted. I ordered a standard size 2 (without the customizing option) which is normally what I wear and my dress fit beautifully. I would have to say the sizes are pretty true to size and it you are concerned about a certain area (chest, hips, booty, etc), $26 is not bad for ensuring the perfect fit. I’m so glad I picked this dress as I cannot even begin to tell you how many compliments I received at the event. And unlike most of my formal wear, this dress will definitely get worn again and again.
