    They should refund you the amount it will take to replace the zipper. I’d still leave a mid-range review on Yelp about the place so people know that they may be taking a risk with ordering from them with wonky sizes.

    I hate when zippers do that! I have had that issue before with a few dresses with side-zippers. I think it may be a design flaw and/or installation flaw of “invisible” zippers. 

    I agree that they should be willing to either:

    A) replace the zipper for you themselves

    B) pay/refund for the zipper to be replaced in your area

    Sorry you are having such a bad time with this dress and this shop!

    If there was deodarant(assuming that’s what it is), on the armpit, that dress wasn’t ordered. They were all like “hey we have a sample CLOSE to that size, let’s do that!”

    I’d be super pissed, and I think as a bride I’d be upset as well.

    I think at this point, you’re gonna have to have it fixed, and send them the bill. Do you happen to have any emails or sales slips that denote what they fixed? Or a list of the complaints that you had?
