Quick question….I am curious to know did your gown (made to your measurements etc) look a lot better than the sample you tried on?
The reason I am asking is this. I tried on a gorgeous dupion strapless gown today. It is simple, yet elgant. I tried it on in 3 different styles and sizes. The size 10 was very tight and my stomach was bulging in a bit. I loved the dress but I couldn’t see past my stomach…I felt a bit disheartened. The sales assistant then told me she had a size 16 in the same dress.
I tried on the 16 which was far too big BUT she pulled it back behind my back and the stomach look AMAZING. I couldnt believe how different it looked. No pulling therefore VERY FLATTERING. But the size 16 was super long and down the bottom it had way too much material…and again I had difficulty invisioning it with the proper hem length…and fitting me properlly.
So my question is….as the samples are hardly ever the “perfect” size….how did you envision yourself with it sitting correctly. And after the long wait…and finally making it to your first fitting in the correct size, did the dress look amazing on?
