Hi, I am looking to buy a used dress that has been altered. This dress was taken out and is a size 14. I am a size 12/14 but plan on losing some weight by next year so I am wondering if I can get the dress taken in after it has been taken out. Does anyone know if that is possible or has had that done before? I don’t want to buy the dress and then realize I can’t get it altered again. Any help would be great!!!!

@lizgreen77: Usually dresses can be taken out one size and taken in two sizes while still looking like the same dress. It depends on the specific dress though. Ones with beading or lace are more difficult to alter (especially if the beading/lace meets in a specific way). If you post a picture of the dress it will be easier for us to judge if the dress can be taken in. I suspect that it should be pretty easy since the dress used to be a little smaller.
