Hi bees! Here’s my problem: I currently live in a country that is causing me a few problems. A. the dresses here all seem to be massive ball gowns B. the sample sizes are TINY, I mean size 0. I’m a small person (but clearly not small enough) and I could zip up 1 of the 6 dresses I tried on C. none of the brands I’ve been looking at are sold here. I won’t be back to NYC for many many months, if at all before the wedding!
What should I do??
I’m considering buying a used dress online so that it’s a bit less risky since it’s not as expensive. I’m not sentimental or superstitious about it so the used part is a non-issue if it’s in good condition.
What would you do???

I tried on dresses similar to the style I wanted to make sure that it suited and then had a custom dress made for me (direct with the factory that makes the dress I tried on in China) with the changes I wanted. It worked well for me. So if there is a style you like I would just try on the dresses in styles you like (don’t even have to be wedding dresses- evening gowns etc) and if there is a dress that you really like but cannot try on but know the style suits maybe post a thread asking for bees that have worn it to post detailed photos?

@j_jaye: That’s what I was trying to do but lost my mind because the sample sizes were so small I couldn’t get anything on. Seriously, could barely get things above my hips and some dresses they didn’t even let me try on. I wear like a size 2 so it’s INSANITY. Also, they just dont have the same style here so I can’t find anything similar to what I’m looking for. Just tons of shimmery, heavy ballgowns grrr
@HisNightOwl2014: interesting! did you use this site yourself??
