I have been waiting months (like you all) for my dress to arrive imaging how amazing i’m going to look in it and how i’m going to knock his socks off. The dress arrived a few days ago & I was a disappointed – the dress i tried on in the store was really tight (it’s mermaid) and i looked hot and loved it but i couldn’t breathe or sit so ordered a couple of sizes larger and so now it fits more comfortably but the wow factor is gone. Did anyone else have this situation and when the alterations were done the wow came back? Alterations make all the difference right?

Hasn’t happened yet, but that’s whats going to happen to me! The dress in the store was waaaay to big on me, except at the hip. So I had to order the same size as the store sample! It’s THREE SIZES too big on the waist and bust. I almost didn’t buy it in the first place because it looks so bad before it gets clipped.
It’ll be better with alterations!

I kind of did.
For one thing, when I got to the shop to make a payment, the manager said “Oh, your dress came in about 3 weeks ago, but you still had SUCH A BALANCE that we didn’t want to contact you yet!” So annoying.
Anyway, I tried it on and after working out and losing weight, it is a tad snug. If I had to wear it tomorrow, it would be okay, but it can look better. So, that means more gym, less calories for the next few weeks.
Once you get your dressed altered you’ll feel better!

I loved mine when it came in, but after my alterations it was horriable. So my dress fit perfectly when it came in, except for the length of course. When my hem and bustle were supposed to be done I tried it on again, and it was a good 3-4 inches too short. In the long run they fixed that issue and also added a lot of lace to the skirt, and now my dress looks good again. Between the visit that the dress was too short at, and the one that they fixed the length, I was so afraid that they were going to mess up my dress more. I was freaking out the whole time.
