We’re constantly obsessing over the dresses on our Instagram feed and dream of finding our very own Quince dress we can obsess over, but are you really buying the real or the replica?
With so many great styles released by popular dress designers, it can be so difficult saying yes to the dress. But before we get there, we have some tips and juicy information on how you can get the actual Quinceanera dress of your dreams!
Now, let’s make it clear. There’s nothing wrong with purchasing a ‘mock dress’, especially if you are on a budget. It is only wrong if you purchase the designer dress and receive the replica.
How can you tell whether the dress is a replica? Keep scrolling down.
When purchasing online or at boutiques, make sure to look out for the following.
“Made in china”
Chinese manufactures usually have the greatest deals that will have you hooked instantly! For example, “Shipped within 3-4 business days.” The bummer is they are usually false advertisement, and can result in you receiving a totally different dress. If so, avoid Chinese manufactures.
“We have this style in every color.”
An important tip you should know is, most popular dress designers only have 3-4 colors available per style. If the retailer offers all colors, it is most likely a replica of the dress you are looking for.
“The corset and skirt cam be changed.”
So far the only authentic dress designer we know who does offer this and is legit, is Quinceanera Collection by House of Wu.
When trying on Quince Dresses, try on a variety and pay attention to the quality.
