are you able to take it back to them and let them know it doesnt fit right.. i would definitely advice trying it on while you are at the store so they can see for themselves that it doesnt fit

I don’t have experience with “stretching” a dress. If it were me, I would take it back and make them fix it correctly. They should have had you try the dress on before you took it. By telling you to stretch it out, they are just being lazy. If I were you, I would be very upset and I would take it back to them and make them fix it.

This whole “wearing it to stretch it out” thing is crap. If it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t fit.  Yes, your body heat will warm it up some and the fabric will loosen, but two centimeters is a lot.  You’ve paid this store to fit your dress correctly and they owe it to you to do that.

If there is a seam allowance left in the dress they should be able to give you a bit more room, especially if they can loosen the allowance in all the seams around your torso.
