Not cheap, but beautifully made to measure I understand.

Yes, they are not cheap, but it is of excellent quality! I love it.

It certainly was an experience ordering the dress. I communicated with Ina and she indicated that only a few of the pink stripe Annalisa dresses are left. They might be replenished but only based on future customer requests.

With the help of Google translate, Ina was able to communicate with me in English. I phoned her once and though her English is very rudimentary (my Italian is practically non-existent) we were able move the process further along.

At first, she wanted my passport information. It seems in Italy, they need that type of information to stop fraudulent declaration of invoices. I was not comfortable sending that information over email, and she was not comfortable doing it over the phone. Ina found an alternative, which was a form that would include name, address, birth date and birth place. I asked if I could fax the information, but their fax number is no longer in service. Their web site does not have encryption either. We ended up speaking on the phone so she could fill in the form. Then I had to go to the bank to do a wire transfer.

In the end, it was worth it. I did get to wear it once, after it arrived, to make sure it fit, and I asked my wife to take a picture of me in it. She will be making it my Christmas gift, given how much it cost. I am really looking forward to wearing it to serve her.

A few weeks ago, we ordered a few Janice C. Parker books and are currently reading from My Husband Is My Sissy Maid for about 5 minutes most evenings before we go to sleep. It looks like I will have more opportunity in the near future to wear my serving dresses in service of her.

The journey has been long and it has taken persistence, communication, learning, understanding, figuring out what works, learning how to be ok with what doesn't, more communication, less communication and dedication to each other's satisfaction in life and our relationship together. We are in a very good place at the moment. It is very helpful to have a web site like this to help me grow in my understanding of myself as well as understanding the impacts and possible responses from my wife. Thank you all for your input here.

Because of my order, I just received an email from what appears to be an updated version of this company, Dinetra (https://dinetra.com/product-category/hotel/donna-hotel/). 

I love the electric blue and plum coloured uniforms.

Blue would be my preferred choice too but my wife would insist on a long, transparent PVC apron over the uniform to keep it better protected. Thanks for the link too, some nice uniforms if a tad expensive. Will leave it around for my wife and drop hints for Christmas.

They do look to be very well made, and authentic as well rather than some of the plastic french maid versions that I suspect a lot of us a familiar with seeing advertised (usually from online fetish shops).

Well, the Mercatores website is still there, and the two companies have different addresses that appear to be close to each other based on the postal code. Interesting how my email address was used by this second company. In this case, I am happy to have learned about this other company. I could imagine another case where I would not be happy receiving this unsolicited email. Marketing people are smart these days.

I emailed Dinetra to find out how they had my email address and I was pleasantly surprised to receive a response fron Ina Pancev! It turns out that she is a founder of Dinetra uniforms and given our previous good contact, she wanted to let me know of the collection her new company has to offer. I have found what I will be asking for as my Christmas gift this year. I also love the smart hair piece, Kesly:

I have several examples of this kind of head piece for when I am in my more formal uniforms; a traditional black and white ensemble. The final item to complete a most humiliating appearance.

My wife and I looked through a number of the uniforms on the website that appealed to me and she too was drawn to the plum coloured uniform. She said to go ahead and order it, as well as the matching apron and the Kesly hair piece. I was also very interested in the black version of the same dress as it comes in 100% polyester satin fabric.

I had a very delightful email exchange with Ina. When she sent me the filled-in order form, there was a 10% discount added in. She always signs off her emails with "We remain at your disposal for any other queries". So I asked her if she had a recommendation for which type of pantihose would go well with the dress, given that I have found that the Italian-made ones that I have been able to find here to be of high quality. I suggested that we would be happy to forego the discount to have one included in the order.

Her response was adding tights is not a problem and that she would choose a pair that goes well with the dress. Ina was very thoughtful in her choice, explaining how she made her choice and said for me to consider them a gift from her for the trust that I have given her. She also said that she is including a small sample of the black fabric so that I will have an idea in case I wish to order the black dress.

This time it was much easier to complete the transaction. I simply phoned using WhatsApp in order to give them my Amex number over the phone.

Ina was not available when I phoned, so I spoke with Rafael, who spoke English very well. After I gave him my credit card details, Ina had returned and so he gave the phone to her. We had a nice chat with both of us thanking each other for the very pleasant exchange. Her English has improved.

Later in the day, Ina sent me a photo over WhatsApp of the parcel she was sending to supply the tracking number to me. 

It was such a positive experience with a very sweet person. I highly recommend Ina and her company. I can't wait for the package. As it is a Christmas gift, I am wondering if my wife will let me try it on when it arrives or if I will have to wait 4 months.

If any of you do end up ordering from Ina, please do say hi from me.

I imagine the anticipation will be crippling if you do have to wait.  Big Grin It is good to hear that you’ve had such a positive experience, though.
