This is a little bit of a rant. I have a fitting later today.. and I’m so nervous about it! My last fitting was about a month ago, and it was supposed to be my final fitting. I’ve literally been the same exact weight for years.. no fluctuation. I’m very tiny.. I weigh 95lbs. So I went in last time & the dress was still way big on me! When I came out, the seamstress made a big deal about how she was so sure it was going to be too small on me so she made it bigger than it was pinned. She then talked so loudly about how I needed to stop dieting & losing weight, blah blah blah, and if I lost even a pound to not bother coming in next time. She made such a big deal and was talking so loud (it’s a small shop) that all the other ladies there gathered around and started talking about how I was so thin.. I just felt really embarassed. Especially because I really don’t diet and I know I haven’t lost a pound. I’ve weighed the same since high school! And I’m 23 now!
She almost seemed mad that she was going to have to take the dress in more, like I was causing a problem. My mom was with me & said she got the same vibe from her. I left feeling like I was going to cry. But I’m almost dreading going in for my fitting today.. and that really makes me feel sad. Advice? Anyone deal with something similar?
