Hi Bees! Think I posed this the wrong place the first time… but anyway!
I was hoping some of you could tell me your experiences with Bari Jay bridesmaids gowns – I was all ready to order them and then I heard that they were a difficult company to deal with and that the sizing is really off. Can you shed some light? Thanks!
Below is the dress I’m thinking about.

@cmarti45: Hey I got your PM just now, but anyways..the sizing was only off for my plus sized sister, I think that could have been the stores fault though trying to get more money out of us. Their dresses fit good for the most part, the strap had to be tightened and the one taken in a good bit, but they still looked great! Plus, the store we got ours at capped alterations at $40 for the bridesmaids, so it wasn’t so bad. I will say the dress I chose worked great on everyones bodyshape…and they all were very different shapes! Here is a photo from a distance…

@cmarti45: I was not best pleased with Bari Jay sizes and their customer service.
We followed the “chart” and sizes were off by 2 sizes, my daughter is a size 8 – 10 their size chart showed size 14. I phoned Bari Jay to discuss what could have gone wrong, seems like the manager hung up on me, called back she was on the phone, then in a meeting, finally I got hold of the owner who said they don’t talk to consumers and we should not order online and defended her size charts which were really off for our bridesmaids. I felt this could have been avoided and wanted to know what went wrong, also the dresses would be distorted with such a big difference in size at a cost of $100 to alter, that is no small change. I did not receive an apology and the owner took no responsibility to find out what could have gone wrong and get back to me, I got nowhere, it was a total waste of time. I would personally be careful with the sizes and size charts if you have your heart set on Bari Jay dresses.
