Oh boy that’s crazy.  My sister-in-law ran into a smiliar situation.  When she ordered her dress she was a true size 8 but the boutique insisted on ordering her a size 10.  Since then she lost a lot of weight due to stress so she’s now a size 6.  She had to go to about 3 or 4 alteration appointments in order to make the dress fit correctly.  Her particular dress tied in the back … so you could tell that the dress wasn’t her true size since the “V” in the back was almost non existent.  They had to sewn in 2 bra cups on each side.  As far as the hips and under arms go I know they took that in quite a bit but the work was done well.  I would recommend going with a REALLY GOOD seamstress!

Ah….she switched from an 8 to a 10 without consulting you?!Is she going to discount your alterations since she made the size change?

Def a problem with her not telling you that she switched sizes on you….look over your contract you signed for the dress and see what size it has listed. ……If it says 8 on there and she ordered a 10….well that means they violated the contract and without telling you…major NO NO….hopefully they will at least cover the cost of your alterations!!

@Mrs.em2hurley:   You could fit into a size 6 and have lost 30 pounds since then?  Wow, that’s a lot for an already small person.

Yikes, I agree! If they changed the size without consulting you, you would be well within your rights to ask for a full refund (not that it’s what you want) since they didn’t honor your contract. 

Also, does anyone else think the “It was going to take too long to order an 8 so we ordered a 10” sounds like complete BS???

@FirstBlush:  I agree that does sound very strange!
