@Mee:  Humm that’s a hard one. You should really call the AA store you want to go to and make sure they have some gowns in your size before you make the drive.  Good Luck.

@Mee:  I used to be a stylist at an AA. I don’t want to sound negative, but the chances of them carrying a size 0 is going to be next to 0. We only had 1 sample that was a size 2. That being said we did have a decent number of dresses that were size 4’s and 6’s which have the potential to be altered down to a size 0. However, most of the dresses are going to be size 8-12 so it really depends on what samples they are selling and if they have those small sizes available for that sample. I would still consider going by. I would set up an appointment if possible so that you can be guaranteed a stylist even if it’s busy. At the AA I worked at, we only helped one bride at a time so you should get 1 on 1 attention. I know you said that you don’t want to call, but if you are unsure calling is going to be the only way for your to get any real info. Good luck!

I ended up ordering a 0 but tried on a 4 and I don’t know if they had anything smaller (most of the ones I tried on were clipped 10’s). I would check out the website and see what you like, then call and see if they have any of those dresses in your size. It may not be worth it because the cost you’ll spend on alterations might not make that 25% off worth it. But if it’s not too far, it might not hurt 🙂 I’d just recommend getting your alterations out of store if you do go with an AA dress.

I would go anyway because your prolly not a dress size 0. Different designers have different sizes. For example I can fit into a DB size two but my dress that I orderedfrom a different store was a size 6. Im a street size 0-1. So you maybe surprised. Also even the same designed could be different sizes because the way that the dress fits. So still check it out!
