FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What age group suits these dresses best?

A: Most of these dresses will accommodate girls in a wide range of ages and sizes. We list these when they were supplied by the manufacturer. For the most part, kids from six- to twelve-years-old would be able to fit into any of these dresses. One style would fit infants as small as newborns, and another would fit kids all the way to sixteen-year-olds, so it is best to look at each and then decide on choices.

Q: What is the best way to clean these dresses?

A: Although some of the manufacturer instructions said machine washing is okay, we would recommend to either hand wash these dresses or have them dry-cleaned. Once you start to get tears and rips in these, it will be hard to stop further destruction without major repairs. We highly recommend having the lace dresses dry-cleaned because these will be hard to repair if holes or tears develop in them. If you do hand wash the dresses, then air dry them or hang them up to dry. One buyer said she put one of the dresses made of 100% cotton in the machine to wash and it shrunk an incredible amount. For the longest wear, hand wash or dry clean and air dry.

Q: Can any of them be used for everyday wear, or are most of them for formal occasions?

A: Yes, the sleeveless dresses with the colorful print patterns could be worn for casual wear, such as the Jxstar Unicorn, Sunny Fashion Ladybug Polka Dot Bow Tie, and the Funnycokid Sleeveless Round Neck Floral dresses. These are simple enough to wear every day, but stylish enough to wear at formal events too. The colorful designs make them a perfect fit almost anywhere.

Q: Which ones have the most options for colors or designs?

A: Several of these plenty of choices for colors and designs, with some choices being as many as twenty and thirty offerings. These are NNJXD Kids Ruffles Lace Party Wedding dress, Sunny Fashions Rose Flower Double Bow Tie Party dress, Kate Kasin Sleeveless Vintage Print Swing Party dress, Sunny Fashion LadyBug Polka Dot Bow Tie dress, and the Funnycokid Sleeveless Round NeckFLoral Printed Holiday dress. Many choices for each of these will give you the best selection.

Q: Which dresses did customers like the best?

A: The dresses with the highest ratings was a three-way tie between the Kate Kasin Sleeveless Vintage Print Swing Party dress, the Bow Dream Ivory Off-White Lace Vintage Flower dress, and the Funnycokid Sleeveless Round Neck Floral Printed Holiday dress. These are very highly rated by consumers as top products in this category.

Q: Which dress has the most reviews and feedback from consumers?

A: Customers most reviewed the top three items on our list. Those are the NNJXD Kids Ruffles Lace Party Wedding dress, Sunny Fashions Rose Flower Double Bow Tie Party dress, and the Jxstar Unicorn dress. The majority of the feedback is positive for these as they do have high ratings.

Q: Which dresses have fun print designs that kids would like to wear the best?

A: The print patterns would be the Funnycokid Sleeveless Round Neck Floral, Jxstar Unicorn, and the Sunny Fashion Ladybug Polka Dot Bow Tie dresses. Girls will have trouble picking out a favorite among these amazing prints. The prices are so economical, it would be wise to purchase more than one like some other buyers did.

Q: Since size is a major concern when purchasing clothes online, what is a good recommendation when ordering these dresses for growing kids?

A: We would recommend what a few of the manufacturers stated. They said to either order the size the child normally wears or a size higher. For dresses, you do not want a dress that is too tight because the child will not be able to move well in it and won’t be comfortable. On the other hand, a dress that is too big will fit like a huge sack on the body and look quite awkward. Plenty of customers said these dresses were running true to size, and there were few problems with sizing. The best recommendation would be to order the size the child wears now unless that is already becoming tight. In that case, order the larger size. For a tall girl, some of the dresses that come to the knee may be too short. One customer noted that her tall child could not reach up with her arms with the dress on because the dress would be too short. For tall children, you may want to order a size larger for the extra length.
