Hi everyone. I’m back on the boards here because this community of brides has been more than amazing with their help! So, I bought my dress. It’s La Sposa – Detalle. And when I tried it on I really liked it. The thing is, when they clipped me into this dress they made it look more A-line than it actually appears in the dress advertisement. I worry that I will receive the dress in my size and it will be totally drop waist, like in the photos online. If this happens…what can I do? It’s pretty structured at the top and very tulle-y at the bottom. Will a good alterations person be able to take the waist in tighter and simultaneously let out the drop waist?? I don’t want it suddenly transformed into a ballgown, but I don’t want the thing to hug my hips super tightly. I hope this makes sense and that one of you lovely ladies can put me at ease. Oh, and my second question, can an alterations person make it more of a sweetheart neckline than it it? I know it sounds like I should’ve tried on more dresses…however I come from a place where there aren’t that many options. Help!
