Nasty Dress is an e-commerce site based in China. The company has connections to manufacturers throughout Asia, so it can offer products to international shoppers at extremely low prices. The site mostly focuses on clothes for women, but you can also find men’s fashion, shoes, jewelry, and accessories.
In my opinion, this is one of the best websites for finding deals on clothing. Everything that you find on the site is sold at deep discounts. Even the clearance rack at your local retailer can’t compete with these prices.
There are a lot of things to like about Nasty Dress. I’ll share some of my experiences here to help you decide whether it is a good choice for you.
Before I made my first purchase, I was concerned that Nasty Dress would send me low-quality clothing. The prices are so low that it was hard for me to imagine that the company could actually earn a profit without cutting corners.
I was surprised by the quality of that first dress. In fact, I still own it and wear it often. It has held up remarkably year over the last two years or so.
While shopping online with a friend, I asked her how Nasty Dress could sell its clothes so cheap. She guessed that it was because retail stores in the United States already use Chinese manufacturers to make their clothing. Nasty Dress is essentially selling the same clothes that you would find at the mall. Since it’s located in China and has relationships with the designers and manufacturers, though, it doesn’t have to charge high prices to stay in business.
In other words, it’s not that Nasty Dress is so cheap. It’s that the retail stores in the U.S. are ripping you off by charging higher prices than necessary.
Internet security has become such a big problem that even major stores have been hacked. I often worry that buying from smaller online shops will put my payment info at risk. I felt a lot more secure when I learned that Nasty Dress is:
- 100% Paypal Certified
- Validated by Trustwave Trusted Commerce
- Protected by Norton Security technology
If the site had just one of these credentials, I’d feel a little hesitant. With all three, I feel pretty protected. I know that there is always a chance that some hacker could steal information from Nasty Dress. But apparently even the I.R.S. can’t keep hackers out. There’s really only so much that you can do to stay safe online. Since I’m not going to give up convenience and low prices, I just try to find sites that offer as much security as possible.
I also like that I can choose to pay with a credit card, PayPal, or wire transfer. Personally, I think that PayPal is the most secure option, so that’s what I use.
Despite the name Nasty Dress (which I’ll get to later in the criticisms section), this website actually has a diverse catalog that can match the style of practically any person. You can even find men’s clothing with:
The site keeps up with the latest trends so you can find cool clothes that make you feel good about yourself.
The prices is what first brought me to Nasty Dress. Unlike a lot of my friends, I didn’t grow up with much money. We were comfortable enough, but my family always looked for ways to keep expenses low. The situation certainly didn’t get any better when I went to college. Despite choosing a state school, I still had to take some loans. The cost of education is ridiculous!
Just because you don’t have much money, though, doesn’t mean that you can stop buying clothes. Clothing is a necessity that you can’t avoid.
As someone used to finding deals, I started searching for stores that would sell clothes I liked at lower prices. Nasty Dress wasn’t the first site I found, but it was one of the cheapest. I also liked that it offered free shipping.
What I didn’t realize at the time is that I could also earn extra discounts by qualifying for coupons. I don’t think I’ve ever paid full price for an item on Nasty Dress. That just means the low prices get even lower.
I have two criticisms that I’d like to share about Nasty Dress. First off, who thought that this was a good name for a company? I understand that the website has a lot of sexy dresses, so maybe someone thought it was clever to call it Nasty Dress. It’s not like it only sells teddies and intimate dresses, though.
I typically wouldn’t care what a company calls itself. I’m here for the prices and quality, not a name. If I were interested in names, then I would go spend my money at the mall.
This one, however, got me because I made my first purchase on a credit card account that got sent to my parents’ house. (This was before I started using PayPal to make all of my online purchases.) I was in college at the time and they agreed to help me pay my bills as long as I used credit reasonably. Seeing a charge from a company called Nasty Dress was not my mom’s idea of reasonable. She thought I was wasting money on lingerie. Who can blame her? I had to show her the dress I got so she wouldn’t freak out on me.
The other criticism is a bit more serious, although it certainly isn’t a deal breaker for me. It takes a long time to ship items from China to the United States. No matter what shipping option you choose, expect to wait at least two weeks for your items to arrive.
I’m sure that sending packages halfway around the world isn’t easy. They have to go through customs in China and the U.S. If you track your package online, you can watch it sit in customs for days. I guess I can’t really blame Nasty Dress for government inefficiency. I bet the customs agents in China are insane about checking packages. I mean, that country doesn’t even want its people to use Google. I can only imagine what it’s like when it comes to real things.
I obviously haven’t let this stop my from shopping with Nasty Dress. I don’t buy things that I’m going to need soon, though. Like, I wouldn’t buy clothes from them if I wanted a new dress to wear this weekend. If you don’t care when your order arrives, Nasty Dress is great. Just don’t make the mistake of thinking that it can delivery packages in a timely manner.
Hey, at least the shipping is free!
I’ve made about a dozen purchases from Nasty Dress. I’ve only had to contact customer service once. A dress that I bought came two sizes too large. I imagine that someone in the warehouse made a mistake and put the wrong size in the box. It was the dress that I ordered. The size was just wrong. It’s an easy mistake to make.
I contacted Nasty Dress support to see what they could do for me. It was then that I realized they might not speak English since they are located in China. I don’t really know what languages people in China learn. I was glad to see that the response email understood my problem perfectly. There didn’t seem to be any communication barrier at all.
Nasty Dress gave me two options. I could return the dress for a full refund or exchange, or I could keep the dress and get a partial refund. I had to send a picture of the dress so they could confirm the situation, which makes sense considering that they pay for shipping.
I decided to keep the dress and take the partial refund. It was too big for me, but I’m really petite. It looked like it would fit my sister perfectly. I gave it to her for her birthday. She loved the dress and I probably didn’t spend more than $5 on it.
I’ve been shopping with Nasty Dress for a couple years now. During that time, I’ve learned that low prices don’t necessarily mean low quality. I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the company’s products and professionalism.
I would caution people against buying clothes that they need for upcoming events. There’s too great a chance that your package won’t arrive on time. If you need something quickly, then it’s best to either shop at a store near you or at least order from a company within your country. Customs just makes it too hard for companies like Nasty Dress to ship packages quickly. It’s a shame, but that’s the reality.
Overall, I think you’ll be impressed with Nasty Dress.
