Customer Testimonials

I ordered a dress from another company and it was the wrong color and wrong size when it arrived. I panicked 6 weeks before my son's wedding. My soon to be daughter in law had ordered her bridesmaid's dresses from your company and been satisfied. I ordered a dress for myself yesterday to replace the first one that was all wrong. Your dress arrived 21 hours after I ordered it by phone and it is just what I ordered and expected. Thanks to your kind employee who answered the phone and to your company for helping us get the dress I needed so promptly! It is wonderful to be dealing with a company from our wonderful home state, Alabama!! I will recommend you to anyone! J.W. Wetumpka,Al.

You people are wonderful. Would like to see a couple new designs, but love you just the same. (Repeat customer since 2013)

From our friends in the Order of the Eastern Star

"I simply love these dresses!! Thanks a million. I had them on time for State meeting! You guys are the best ever and a blessing to our order!!"
L. M. Dolomite, Alabama

Have used you before. Happy customer. (Customer since 2010)
T. L. Bullhead City, AZ

This is the 2nd dress I have ordered. Your dresses are exactly what I need for my organization. (Repeat customer since 2012).
M. C. Toms River, New Jersey

Very Pleased-Exceeded my expectations!
B K Boardman, Ohio

Just ordered my first Eastern Star gown from (D667) and love it! It fits perfectly! I will order another design in the future. I just ask that you please consider adding more white gowns to your design line/inventory. I am going to tell my Eastern Star sisters in my chapter about your great quality and price! Love the jackets and shrugs you offer in the line too. Keep up the great work! So thankful to have your company as regular white gowns are hard to find with sleeves that are appealing to us over 50 age group. Most places sell only wedding gowns in white which are way too ornate and expensive for us Eastern Star ladies. Love your website!!
L.D. Port St Lucie,FL.

I found your website and ordered bridesmaid dresses here. I've recommended it to every bride since then. This is now my 3rd time I've been in a wedding where my friend has ordered from formalwear-outlet.com. I love it! P.S. I loved working with the customer service rep-she's wonderful!

S.O. Lockport, NY.

Ladies - I received the dress on Wednesday, thank you so much for the quick ship! It fits very well, just a little tailoring needed across the top, but not much. I'm so glad we found your store online, it's going to be perfect, and the bride just loves the two tone coloring in the dress! Thanks again for the last minute shopping help! B.C. Forrest City,AR.

Thank You for giving us the option of raising the necklines. You are meeting a great need for modest dresses. You were very helpful and patient also.
C.P. Little Mountain,SC

I ordered at the first of May for the Dulciana Dress. Which I receive far faster than I was told. In EXCELLANT condition. The dress is so beautiful and fits like it was made for me.!!! All that is needing to be done is shorten and taken in very slightly at the shoulders. If the occasion occurs again to which I need a dress such as Dulciana, I most certainly will look at your good folks first!! Do take care and all the best!!
MS.N.I. Gravenhurst, Ontario Canada

I wasn't sure of the size of dress to get my daughter, so I used the phone number posted on the website, and the woman that helped me was excellent. She was friendly, upbeat, and very helpful. She helped me decide what shipping to use to get the dress on time. I would recommend them to anyone.
E.G. Auburn,WA

My granddaughter is in college and needed a long black dress for band concerts. The dress arrived in only a couple of days, it fits really well and looks great on her. The only thing I have to do is hem it up an inch or so to keep it off the floor. We are very pleased both with the dress and the service.
M.P. Dixon,TN.

I can't thank you enough! You found the perfect color for me, the dresses are beautiful, there isn't a better price anywhere(I know-I looked everywhere) And you shipped the dresses three weeks before I expected them! Wow!!! I actually cried when I received the Dresses-Thanks so much!!!!
A.S Lexington,KY.

I just wanted to thank you again for being so wonderful in helping me order my gown. You were so quick in responding to me through e-mail and my gown came in on time with a perfect fit. I will definitely recommend you to everyone I know and I will be contacting you again for future orders. Thank you and may God richly bless you!!
S.C. Fayetteville,NC.

I just want to thank you so much for working with me and basically getting me a custom sized dress in an amazingly short time. The new one fits like a dream, thanks again!
V.V. Fort Wayne,IN.

I Ordered the Diamond Neck Dress in Shantung. It was GORGEOUS.... It was so comfortable and I felt like a queen in it. I was very concerned that I would be frantically looking for a dress just days before the wedding and settling on anything. But the dress was beautiful.
I received so many compliments.
I want to express my gratitude for the wonderful work you did --just as if you were my own seamstresses. I could not be happier with my selection, fit and comfort.
Thank You again
M.C. Deer Park, TX.

Just a note with a million thanks for all you did to make our wedding special! The Dulciana dresses are really lovely, made of a high quality fabric, and flattered each of my four attendants. Even when one of my bridesmaids unexpectedly had to back out three weeks before our wedding, you helped me get a dress in the right size for my cousin, actually delivering it three days earlier than you predicted thus allowing her to get the dress tailored with plenty of time to spare! I will recommend your company to everyone!
T.H-F. Gross Point Farms, MI.

This is by far one the nicest companies I've ever dealt with! Service was great and delivery was exactly as promised-Great Job.
C.W. Gilbert, AZ.

I am completley impressed at the speed of the order and the dresses are beautiful. I love the rich color. When some of the dresses didn't fit right you came to the rescue and sent 2 dresses to compensate and now everything is wonderful.
M.H. Palm Desert, CA.

I ordered 6 dresses for my Bridesmaids. Even though we had problems with the sizing you did everything you could, went above and beyond to help me and keep me calm. In the end everything went perfect and the dresses were beautiful. Thank You
C J M / Templeton, CA.

Customer service was excellent. I thought I may have needed a bigger size because of my measurements, but they recommended the smaller size and were confident it would fit, so I went with the smaller size and when I tried it on it fit perfect. They really know what they are doing and they are super friendly. The dress quality was good, price was definitely good and it was shipped super fast. I will definitely purchase from them again.
M.P. Orangeburg SC.

You guys are awesome and Customer Support is fabulous.
I ordered the wrong size top accidentally, and you came to the rescue.
J.B. Alameda,CA.

Thank you formalwear-outlet.com. My dress just arrived today and I am very pleased with it!!! It is exactly what I ordered. I am also very happy with your company and would not hesitate to order another dress/outfit at any time, from you. I was mostly appreciative of your immediate responses to my inquiries and as this was a very first time for my having ever ordered online, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I know now that you are a company of your word and I am lucky to have had such a truly positive experience by shopping with you.

All the best!


I just wanted to tell you what an amazing experience I had with this company. My mom and I looked every where for forest green dresses and we found you online. The customer service representative was very informative, helpful and personable. My mom never buys anything online, but with the excellent help she recieved ordering she felt confident of making the purchase. I now recommend this site to anyone planning their wedding attire! I wish I could have found you sooner! K.B.Milwaukie.OR.

I love the fact you allow swatch ordering, lots of websites do not offer this feature...thank you!!! J.L/Lockland,OH.

Customer Service was very kind and very helpful. S.Y/ Denver, CO

Thank You Customer Service for your patience on sizes. We are very pleased with the dresses. E.C./ Sand Springs, OK

I was really surprised by the quality of the dress, knowing I had paid a great discount price. I love the dress. S.A./ Micanopy, FL

Easy to navigate through your website. Great Customer Service-package arrived on time- great quality item. R.I./ Cincinnati, OH

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your service. In the midst of the disaster of planning my wedding this was an area that actually gave me hope. When I received the dresses I had ordered and they were way too big for my bridesmaids I almost cried. So far, my ring is too small, my One of a Kind Wedding dress is too small, I have not been able to secure a photographer. And the home we bought had to be completely repainted. It was so nice to be able to exchange my dresses and not only get the right size, but also choose a color that I absolutely love with no hassle whatsoever. Your Customer Service Rep, who I talked to on the phone, was absolutely wonderful to work with. Again, I just want to say thank you for making business with your company so easy. V.G./ Enoch, UT

Many thanks for the excellent service including help given on the phone before ordering. My package arrived as promised. D.C./ Dartmouth, MA

It is hard to have a store in Ohio to work with groups. In the past we have used N.C, G.A, and N.Y-Ordering 37 formals is a big job. Your Customer Service Rep was a great help. R.S./ Orient, OH

Excellent website and the cost of the garments are very reasonable. I have already recommended you all to my friends. J.Z./ Clarksburg, WV

Great company overall! Thank You! L.L./ Elbow Lake, MN

Over the top excellent service!!! Thanks! D.L./ Bellingham, WA

Love it, Love it, Perfect! Thank You!! A.B./ Dewitt, MI

Fast service, Very Helpful, answered all my questions, will use Formalwear-Outlet again! J.C./ Decatur, AL

Your Customer Service Rep was great to work with. I did not order online because I had some questions about material. You all special ordered my material for the dresses and they turned out great! H.W./ Newark, OH

I requested a special order and it was done for me with no problem. The help was very friendly and assisted me in a timely manner, also, very understanding. Thank You! L.M./ Charleston, MA

Quick phone call < 24 hours after order placed. I was very impressed. I will use your site to shop!! S.F./ Plainfield, IN

I would recommend this company to anyone! In fact-a friend is getting married (unsure when) but I have highly recommended your company! Your customer service was excellent! J.B./ Des Moines, IA

The website would not let me order because it had trouble with my credit card ( it said that it did not match the address but it did) but customer service was very friendly and helpful and took care of the problem. R.E./ Ward Cove, AK

I ordered over the phone from your catalog. Each and every time I spoke with a representative, they were extremely helpful and most of all extremely friendly!-Thanks! R.T./ Lynchburg, VA

The representative I worked with was very helpful. The school had a bulk order which I missed, but I was able to still make a purchase in time for the concert. Your Customer Service Rep went out of their way to be helpful and pleasant. They even checked alterations/ sewing department to make sure I selected the correct size. Thank You! It was a pleasure doing business with you. K.S./ Manassas, VA

Very friendly. A tremendous help during stressful times! Thanks so much!! M.W./ Croswell, MI

Very pleasant customer service representative. Keep up the good work! D.E./ Benton, LA

The order came earlier then I expected. Your Customer Service Rep was very knowledgeable and friendly. Yes! I plan to order from your company for my wedding. Thanks! R.D./ Jackson, MS

The prices are awesome and the quality of the garments was superior! S.L./ Clarksburg, WV

When I had to return the dress to exchange it for a smaller size, the person who helped me was very friendly and helpful- Thank You! B.M./ Chandler, AZ

You were fantastic with your Customer Service and your shawls (crepeback) are beautiful! They matched my bridesmaids dresses perfectly. I will order dresses from you soon!!! C.L./ Yuma, AZ

Would not accept my credit card despite my bank approving it. However, Customer Service responded quickly to my email and accepted a phone order. J.O./ Saint Helens, OR

Your Customer Service Rep was wonderful. They were very helpful and gave me confidence in the company's competence and abilities. The dresses are perfect. E.G./ Lindenwold, NJ

It was very easy to order my 16 year old son his 1st tuxedo. The person on the phone was very knowledgeable about the product and very patient with me even though I wasn't sure what I was doing. When the tuxedo arrived I was amazed at the quality. A.H./ San Diego, CA

It is hard to find wholesome dressed anymore! We greatly appreciate the classic quality of your garments, and will eagerly review new dresses with sleeves, modest necklines, ect. Thank you for introducing pastel colors more suitable to weddings. J.S./ Middlebury, IN

I just wanted to say thank you. You have shined brightly for me two times. My wedding last year and my daughter's wedding. Thank you very much. K.T./ Saint James, MO

I'm glad I've found a more modest dress for my bridesmaids. C.C./ Chicago, IL

I had a wonderful shopping experience with formalwear-outlet. The selection available in tall lengths was vast and the prices could not be beat by major department stores or specialty shops with the same types of clothing. The absolute BEST part of the shopping experience was the customer service. This company responds to email questions and comments as soon as they receive them and the customer service department offers suggestions and options to make the customers requests a reality. I received a reply to my questions the day after I ordered the dresses. I will shop at this store for as long as they remain in business. They have treated my order as if it were their own and have supplied the necessary information needed so I can have my merchandise made-to-order, shipped directly to me, and have easy access to their customer service department via phone or email. I cannot wait until my items arrive so I can rave some more about this site. Kudos to a company who can supply what is needed and not charge an arm and a leg. Karlene.P., APO

The people at Formalwear-Outlet.com were GREAT!!!! They got me my products probably faster than usual. My wedding is this Saturday(March 12th), and I ordered my products late, but they made sure I got them today (March 9th), so I could relax before my Wedding. I ordered the Crepe back shawls, and they are BEAUTIFUL!!! They match my bridesmaids dresses perfectly. Fantastic craftsmanship and more than wonderful price! I am 110% satisfied! I will recommend them to EVERYONE I know for dresses and more! I am SOOOOO PLEASED! Cindy, AZ

I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful service you provided to me and my bridesmaids! Our dresses were custom made with a sweetheart neckline -- a service that even the expensive bridal salon where I purchased my gown would not provide to me! Kathy was a pleasure to do business with. She is friendly, courteous, professional and extremely helpful! I will recommend your services to all of my friends who are getting married. I am very, very pleased!

Sincerely, Kristina Allison Warren, Michigan

I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am with my Alba dress. Shipping was incredibly fast and the dress was simply wonderful. I will definitely be using this company again. When I called customer service to ask when the dress would arrive, the person I spoke with was so pleasant and helpful. I don't think I would have been able to find a bridesmaid dress if it had not been your formal wear outlet. Thank you so much!
A.W./ Sanford,Fl.

I ordered 6 dresses for my Bridesmaids. Even though we had problems with the sizing you did everything you could, went above and beyond to help me and keep me calm. In the end everything went perfect and the dresses were beautiful. Thank You
C J M / Templeton, CA.

Customer Service was fantastic. Dress came fast, Return and Exchange was customer friendly. I will be using Formalwear-Outlet again!
T.M. / Vidalia, GA.

I have never before dealt with a mail-order company that treated me with such respect, responded in as timely a manor, nor lent such a personal touch. Thank You
J.D. / Lansing, MI

I didn't know how I was going to find a prom dress in time. Actually you've beat your set delivery date because I was promised my order in 4 weeks and received it in 2 1/2 weeks. Thank You
L.G. / Wilmer, TX

I was very impressed with the overall experience, from pre-order questions through the exchange process, I got quick responses and excellent feedback. The dresses are of great quality and very modest. Thanks so much!
R.R. / Tulsa

I cannot tell you how pleased we all are with these dresses. Several of the bridesmaids in my daughter's wedding on Aug 30, 2003, have been in several other weddings this summer. To alleviate their financial bind, I bought the gowns for the girls but the prices on these were so reasonable that it wasn't a financial strain on me to buy 5 gowns. They arrived in a timely fashion and while they are sized a little big, after alterations, they look beautiful on the girls. What a great way to celebrate without financial strain on the girls. Our daughter is a Penguin and Steeler fan, so her colors are black and gold. I was concerned about black gowns for the girls, but they are very elegant and their appreciation gifts to be given at the rehearsal dinner are gold necklaces with cubic zirconias that fall right on the neckline. Thank you so much! We will be ordering the next time the need arises from your company. Great service, delivery and satisfaction.
Bonnie Warren

Hello! I received my bridesmaid dresses a couple of days ago and are they BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! I wasn't sure what type of quality they were going to be but the material is great, the dresses look great. I can't believe they were only $59! I want to thank you and my bridesmaids want to thank you!!!
Rebekah Barker

Customer Service was super friendly and personable. I felt very comfortable placing my order. Thank You!
R W / Thief Rivers Falls, MN.

My dress fit perfectly! It was a beautiful color and I love that it is washable. I even plan to shorten it and use it as a regular dress after the wedding.
