@SoonToBeMrsD921:  A fit and flare is certainly supposed to be pretty snug.  Maybe when you wear it on the wedding day, you can get whoever laces you up to not tie it quite so tight?

When I tried my dress on last week, the lady said to put it on at least an hour before the wedding and then tighten it because it will relax into your body. Maybe she just tightened it a bit too much? It will probably give s bit…

@SoonToBeMrsD921:  I believe I was told that if a dress that shape is too tight in the waist and bust then it will pull thefabric from the lower tummy area causing it to not lady flat/bunch.. maybe take it for a “quote” somewhere else to get a second opinion.

At my seamstress appointment this past week she said that you want it to be tight because it will eventually losen up and fit to your body. In a matter of 5 minutes after her tying my corset back it already became loser and fit with my body. Have someone tie it for you and see how it feels after wearing it for 10 minutes. Hope this helps!

Mine relaxed after a few hours, but I was basically unable to fully sit the whole day. I could not pull the dress up to use the washroom. But so, so worth it.

@SoonToBeMrsD921:  I wore a very fitted tight trumpet and I couldn’t sit down all day and I felt like it was going to rip when I sat down for dinner.  (Part of mine did end up ripping because so many people stepped on the bottom) I highly recommend having a second late night reception dress.  I changed into mine after cake cutting and I was SO happy that I had it.  It was the best decision I made.  I just got one from Bloomingdales (not a fancy “wedding” one) and I kept the tags on unti lthe last second just in case I didn’t need to wear it.  I was really really happy I had it though and I ended up changing into it and making a dramatic appearance during “Don’t Stop Believing” and everyone cheered!

My dress is a mermaid and has a corset back and it definitely is not the most comfy item I’ve ever purchased. When I made a joke about it to the sales girl, she kind of gave me this ‘suck-it-up-buttercup’ look and said basically the same thing: “that’s a tight dress for ya”!
