I think that a LOT of bridal salons do this, and it makes no sense at all.  My bridesmaids all got their dresses (Dessy After Six) at different places, and they all came in multiple sizes too large.  I’ve always suspected it’s because they want to charge you for alterations…

Jim Hjelm runs small, but I do suspect they changed sizes in order to charge you extra to get alterations done there. I spoke with them when i ordered my girls dresses (Jim Hjelms). I went through Pearls Place and saved 1100.00 (I purchased 8 bridesmaids dresses for my girls). Nice savings!

I have just taken to telling them right off the bat that we will be having them altered elsewhere. They did this to me on my wedding dress, and for sure I don’t want to let them charge me $100 to take the bodice in one inch when I can have it done by a local seamstress for less than half that amount.
