- Wedding: September 2013
My bridesmaids dresses have arrived (ordered from ebay) after taking the girls measurements and ordering the corresponding dress size as stated online and i have a feeling the sizing has come up bigger.
I tried on one of the dresses last night and its too big on me so im pretty sure its going to be too big on the bridesmaid too.
The problem is (might not be a problem) the dresses have an elasticated shearing back. If i had known the sizing was taken based on the elastic not being stretched i would have ordered the dresses a size smaller as i know from experience they dont stay up to well otherwise.
is it possible to alter dresses with the shearing? they have a side zip too. I have no clue when it comes to alterations.
