(Closed) Between Lazaro sizes… what to do?

posted 9 years ago in Dress
  • poll: If I fall between sizes, should I size up or down with a super beaded dress?

    Size up

    Size down

    Even beaded dresses are made to allow for some alterations, so relax and order the 14

    Also, when I took my dress to a seamstress she said Lazaro gowns are made to be altered because of the way the seams are and typically all of the detail is done on a sheer overlaY. This makes it easier because everything doesn’t have to come off for them to alter the dress. It is less reconstruction. I was surprised and relieved.

    I would be really nervous about having to lose weight to fit into a dress. Wedding gowns are so structured and intracite, that there’s not much give. My gown was a size 10 and super tight, but I bought the sample. I think even if I had lost a ton of weight, it still would’ve been tight because of the way I’m built. I would find a trustworthy seemstress (especially one the shop recommends)

    Your dress is gorgeous! 

    Alterations can be stressing, but experienced seamstresses deal with all sorts of alerations and dresses, I think the details will actually make it less obvious, imagine a plain dress with no details being altered, not as much work of course but the lines would be so obvious. Go up in size, dresses that are too small are anything but flattering. 

    Good luck πŸ™‚

    @LilianHarlow:  hmm.. I am  36-27-37 and when I tried the dress on for the first time it was a 10 and there was a little room in it. I then ended up purchasing a sample size 12 and now I am getting alterations done. My dress is more of a mermaid so i guess it depends on how you are built. If I were you I would probably order the 14 and then shop around for a seamstress. I took my dress to the seamstress to show them before deciding they would do the work. Because you will only get it 6 weeks before I would take pictures to different seamstresses to get their opinions and ask other girls who purchased this dress how alterations went. I have seen this dress on other bees so I suggest asking around. I hope this helps Smile

    jagboo33:  Do you still have your Lazaro 3059?

     

    If so, what size is it, and would you consider selling it?

     

    I need between a 12-16.

    Thank you

    Absolutely size up!  Seamstress can do amazing things!  A lot of dresses can’t be taken out (a lot of time intricate design doesn’t allow for extra fabric to be left at the seam).  Even if they can take it out, it would be much more expensive and change the look of the dress.  Definitely definitely order the size up!!
