I tried on several that we’re too big on me…. With the big clips you will be able to get a good idea! The dress I went with the sample size was too big but I was able to get a very good idea…. Then it came in yesterday in my size and was very happy with the fit! Def try it on!!

The clips will hold it all in.  I liked how the sample looked on me better than my actual dress did at my first fitting!  And don’t let them talk you into buying the next size up of what your measurements are.  Mine swum on me last week.

Every single dress I tried on was WAY too big on me! The clips held it in place very well, and now that my dress is almost done (one more fitting left) it looks just as I expected it to.

All the dresses I tried on were 6-8 sizes too big (bridal sizes). When I bought my dress, the sample was a 10 and I am a 2. The consultant will clip the extra fabric in the back to get a better idea what it will look like. But you for sure need to use your imagination a little bit and trust that it will be nice! It’s helpful if the salon has another dress in your size (not necessarily the right style) just to see how that designer’s size/fit runs.
