Yup, Sample could have been stretched out. I tried a 4 on at the bridal salon but when I ordered it via a preowned weding site in the same size, it was about two inches too tight above the waist. I even lost a few pounds but nope, too tight. I didmt think I could let it Out, but the seamstress did an amazing job. I’d take it in and just see what an experienced seamstress says.

Mine was the same way. My sister in law gave me the best advice: wedding dresses are like jeans straight out of the dryer. They come super tight and need to be stretched out a bit. If you’re worried about letting it out, I would try and wear it for a few hours here and there and see if it stretches out a bit. It will probably all depend on the style of the dress and which of your measurements measured at a 10 and which measured at a 12.

Looking at the dress, so long as the problem area is not your bust it should be possible to make it 1-2 inches bigger. The fabric in the side seams isn’t lace so if you let that out it would be roomier around the waist and upper hips. The bust area might be more difficult but there might be some extra fabric at the top of the straps.

canadiana188:  I’m getting married in the same day as u and my dress also does not fit. I am hopeful I can loose the weight before we start alterations but I just can’t get motivated to work out.
