I have to say, I’m not a fan of Wtoo BM dresses!  I am a street size 8/10.  Have a larger bust, so I ended up ordering a 14 Wtoo dress for a wedding last fall.  That should have made me fit right in the chest but be way too big elsewhere.  When I got it, it didn’t even zip!! I had to have it taken out (even after I lost about 8lbs between getting the dress and the first fitting).  Their sizes are totally whack!!  Luckily I got a good seamstress, but aside from killing my self esteem, I paid a fortune between the dress itself and the alterations.  

I also had zipper problems… I will never make my BW wear Wtoo dresses lol

Can’t speak much about the designer, but I can say that the exact same thing happened to my sister for my wedding.  She is super petite and ordered the smallest size available, as recommended by the bridal shop.  When she tried the dress on, it was loose in the bust but wouldn’t zip all the way up!  She does have a wide back…maybe that was it?

Her seamstress was able to let it out as much as possible and reconstruct it to make it work….if not, we would’ve had to purchase extra fabric to make a panel in the back.  Don’t know if this would be an option for you??

Find another seamstress if this one isn’t willing to work with you…way too stressful (not to mention the $$ you’re shelling out).

I’m fairly certain that most bridal clothing companies enjoy watching brides and bridesmaids stuggle with ill fitting dresses- if they fit perfectly then stores wouldn’t get to charge loads of money for alterations!  But Watters in gerenal just seems to be awful- it makes me feel a little better that I’m not the only one to expereince this.
