    eBay Canada offers tips and tricks for finding your dream wedding dress
    for less

    TORONTO, July 23 /CNW/ - Many women dream of their fantasy wedding from
the day they married their Barbie and Ken, but most brides find planning for
that special day to be nothing but stress - especially when it comes to
finding that perfect dress. Whether it's a timeless classic dress, a
traditional ethnic bridal gown, or something fun and funky for the beach, the
dress of your dreams can often be hard to find.
    eBay Canada fashion expert Tara Posluns can help keep stressed-out brides
from becoming bride-zillae, with tips and advice for finding the perfect dress
online and under budget:

    -   Know your size - Have a seamstress take your exact measurements so
        you'll know what to look for. Keep in mind that wedding dresses run
        two sizes smaller, so it's better to buy a dress two sizes up and
        have it tailored down if needed.

    -   Know your style - Find a dress that suits your body-type so you look
        fabulous, not uncomfortable. You'll want to eat, dance and have fun,
        so get a dress that allows you to move comfortably. Try on several
        styles and types in a boutique, then search for them on

    -   Know your budget - Stick to a budget. has thousands of
        wedding dresses of all types, at all prices - you're sure to find one
        that you love within your budget. You can use proxy bidding to set
        your maximum amount, or check the buy-it-now section in your price

    -   Know your seller - Look for detailed pictures of the actual dress
        rather than a stock catalogue photo and ask as many questions as you
        need. A high positive feedback rate is essential and read what other
        brides are saying about the seller. And most of all, look for a no-
        hassle return policy, so you have the option to return the dress if
        you need to.

    -   Know your seamstress - A good tailor is key no matter where you buy
        your wedding dress! Almost any dress will need adjustments to make it
        perfect. It's best to go with a dressmaker who has tailored clothes
        for you before so he or she knows your exact body shape.
