I had a heart attack moment when I saw pictures of me in the sample dresss. The sample was “well loved” and just didn’t have the poof I remember in MY dress. Once I put my dress on again I felt much much better.

The general rule of thumb is 10 lbs = 1 dress size. So unless you lost 30 lbs and didn’t know it then maybe they measured wrong. I like the way the place I bought my dress from sized me. They got dresses from the same designer but in sizes close to me and asked which fit better. My dress still came in too big in the chest but that’s easy to fix. Rather too big than too small! I’m glad they were able to find one that fit you though. Do you have pictures?!

Mine was also during my first fitting. Even though I ordered split sizing to accommodate my pear shape, only the hips fit play and everything else was way too big. This made me look as wide as my hips are throughout my entire body, so I looked like a big box! It was awful and I definitely cried haha. But they took it in and it ended up being fine. Yours wi be too! Good luck and try not to worry 🙂
