Sample Gown Condition Rating
Sample gowns are a great way for brides land a gown that was originally way above their price point. When shopping for a Sample Gown, it's important to learn the gown's condition. We have created a rating system to help brides know exactly what they are buying. The amount of the discount is reflected in the set price of the sample. The newer the gown, the closer the price will be to the original retail price. An older gown in need of some repair will show a large discount from the retail price, sometimes up to 80 % off. Typically a Excellent Condition gown will be up to 40% off where as an older or Damaged gown will be upwards of 80% off.
