@psb23:  I think most dresses do this, especially if they are corseted… my seamstress told me to get dressed no later than 45 mins before the ceremony so that the dress gets a chance to lossen up and mold to my body better… i think its true, bc when i put it on it was tight and high, by the end of the night, it was weighted down and pretty much dragging on the floor…. i think your seamstress is correct.

@psb23:  It depends on the fabric of your dress. For example, silk tends to shrink when being steamed/ironed, but it would stay that way and not become longer again. What’s your dress made of?
