After recent consumer submissions, we have investigated Merle Dress and added this site to the TPW Do Not Buy list. They are illegally selling one or more dress lines using the manufacturers pictures. These dresses are imitation and not authentic.
I haven't actually ordered from the site, but I was tempted to. Every positive review on every ratings website is done in broken English, obviously a result of a foreign company paying people to write good reviews so people buy from their site. All the negative reviews, however, are written in perfect English. I just wanted to warn people that it's a scam before they ordered from the site and regretted it, in case they couldn't figure out the positive reviews were a scam. - Anna - April 11, 2013
TPW Note: We can confirm that there are many positive reviews that appear to written by someone working for this company.
merledress.com has been added to the knock-off formal wear list. This site ships knock-off dresses from overseas and is trying to take advantage of consumers by passing off dresses as authentic. This store uses images from manufacturers illegally under US copyright law.
