So I bought my dress back in April one year out from my wedding. I was told I would see the dress in December but it arrived early surprising me by arriving at the end of July. I tried the dress on in August and it was loose. I had lost about 10 lbs. my dress was ordered in a size 18 to accommodate the fact that I am a 38DDD up top. My current weight is about 25Lbs down from when I ordered the dress but I am the same cup size. I am now panicing I don’t want to go try on my dress because I am scared. Amother young woman at work said she lost two dress sizes and Davids Bridal said she would have to order a new dress because it cannot be taking in two sizes. My dress is a Maggie Sottero mermaid with lace and a corset. Could this happen to me. I just want to be honestly prepared before I go to a fitting.

Crudd49: Don’t worry about it too much. You have a corset which can help you adjust your size VERY easily.

Also…DB is not the only place for alterations. They are limited to what they can and will do so if needed, find someone else to do the alterations if they give you an problems.
I wanted my 1 BM dress to be shortened to tea length and regardless of the dress, they had an automatic “they don’t do that” response.

It just may cost you more money but someone can fix it for you I’m sure.

I would not use David’s Bridals alterations. They are expensive and not very well done generally. I work at a very nice bridal boutique. I have seen our seamstresses take sample gowns from a 12 down to a 6. An average alteration price at our shop is between $150-$300. Take your gown to a local alterations place and see what they say.

I lost 40 pounds and was able to alter my dress through a different shop and it only cost me 100 dollars! Where are you located?
