I picked up the dresses 2 weeks ago. My sister and best friend both ordered size 14s. My bf just had her 2nd baby so we ordered 14 for her as she is usually a 12. Both the 14’s are too s on both of them. Their measurements were slightly different to the first time they were measured but not drastic enough for a 14 to not even come close to zipping up so were convinced the guy wrongly ordered size 12’s. even when I got there with my mum he said two 12’s and an 8 right? And we were like no two 14’s! He just went along with it and said oh yea that’s right but the dresses didnt even have the sizes on them.
Anyway we took them back so he could let them out. He told us they allow 6 inches of material to be let out but I think that is a lie. We measured the hem inside the size 8 dress and it only measured 1.5 inches on each side so 3″ in total. anyone know from experience how much is left over on bridesmaid dresses to be let out? I don’t know what I’m going to do if they still don’t fit 🙁
