- Wedding: October 2011
I’m about to get ready to go to my fitting. I am super duper nervous about it because I have had a lot of problems with this darn dress!!!! It is a very long story but here is a quick short version.
I bought a size 14 sample. (I am a size 2 street size.) The dress shop that I bought it from altered it for me and I was never happy with certain parts of it still. I fealt it needed more alterations and you bees also helped me to see that it did. I called the shop to ask if I could come in and see what I could do to fix the problems with it and they refused. They said it is fine and I can come back 2 weeks before my wedding. They said they are very busy right now and I had to just schedule my last fitting before the wedding. My wedding isn’t until October…this is a long time to worry.
They were rude about it too and seemed annoyed with me so I went there and asked for my dress and left. (Btw they had no one there and were just playing with each others hair…:( Then I took it to another shop where they let me try it on in front of their seamstress. I also tried on other dresses to make sure this was the one. Everyone there agreed that my dress was great but needed alot of work still. I mean alot.
The first shop stuffed the bust with 4 bra cups because it was so large on me. (I felt like a stuffed turkey). Also the cups were D’s and I am a measly B. The new dress shop said I only needed the normal 2cups. They just needed to recontour the bust and move things around. It also still needed taken in an inch at the hips. It also needed lace added where it was bare. The bustle could be changed to look a million times better. (The last dress shop didn’t want to show me other bustle options.) Oh, there are many more things too but I won’t bore you guys anymore.
Long story short (which I kind of lied about now looking at how much I have rambled.) The new shop said they should have never sold me this dress being that it needed so much altering and that the bust was so huge on me. But, they think they can fix it to look nice and I do love it so I can’t wait to see their magic. Fingers crossed. Ahhh here I go. I will post pictures after. Thanks for listening.
