I bought my dress, it’s a mermaid/ trumpet fit, and I tried yesterday to sit down, I can sit down but gosh not comfortable at all I worried that I will rip it aport lol, so I wonder if it is because it’s too tight – and I need to let it own half inches (the sales lady told me it’s the case with all mermaid dresses and she wouldn’t let it out personally) – I am planning to wear a shorter dress for reception because of this. I wonder if what she told me is true or just because my dress is too tight, please help!!!

@zoecn: With these styles (specificqally mermaid), you should have ~little~ problem sitting down (typically you just pull the dress up a bit and then sit very straight). It’s not the most comfortable, but it shouldn’t rip.
If your dress is too tight or the material is too stiff with little stretch/give, then you might not be able to sit at all. This shouldn’t be a problem if you’re changing for the reception, but you might want to think about having to sit in the car/limo on the way to the ceremony and reception. If you have to sit at all during the ceremony/transporting time periods, then you might want to consider having your seamstress let it out a bit, even if you are changing.

@zoecn: I think it is a little uncomfortable when sitting in a mermaid but you’ll be stood up for much of your day

@zoecn: sounds like its a lil too tight on the hips. obv mermaids are more ‘difficult’ to sit in than an A line or ball gown, but sitting should still be possible and comfortable..just like if u were wearing a pencil skirt, there should be enough room to bend at the hips. I would get it taken out a touch!

@MlleFabuleux: thank you, my dress is satin dress so the material doesn’t stretch much at all, I think the only other way is if by the time of my wedding I haven’t lost some weight, I probably will let it out above the thigh half an inch to be able to pull it up ( I still can but I dont want too tight anyway). Fortunately I will most likely have ceremony and reception at the same place and I will stay overnight or change in the morning there as well, so not much sitting in the car. But I do plan to do an hidden zipper just to be able to pee, or if I sit in the car I can zip it down. Let ‘s hope the plan will work and I wouldn’t needd a second dress, I love it a lot would want to use the most out of it 🙂
@CatyLady: I would hope so too
@Khlobee: thanks, did you or are you having a mermaid dress? What type of material of your dress if you dont mind me asking?

i have the mori lee 1653 sample i purchased and then gained weight. i am now overflowing the bodice. has anyone been successful letting this dress’s bodice out. i know satin can be hard, showing original stitching. any hope? will shapewear help with back and front bodice overflow?
its mermaid and hard to sit comfortably. so maybe hips to let out also:(
