Well went to pick up my dress today from DB. They had me try it on to make sure it fit right and everything. I go and stand on the little platform thing. I love my dress and the ladies ( Ill call them A and B) is messing with it and I notice my dress bunching on both sides. I ask the alteration A why its doing that. “Oh the bodice is to long for you we must shorten it” What do you mean to long?! It fit fine before that just a tad tight! I ask the A can they make it smaller “No we cant”.What…You just said you can? Ok I start having a minor freak out when I turned around and realized it was all bunched up in the back to! A then says we can add bone to the sides and I asked her if it would fix it and she shook her head No. I ask her then why did you suggest that?! I ask the alterations manager to come over and ask A and B what went wrong and apparently they took it in to much. They measured me and added a extra inch and a half. At this point I start crying because my dress looked terrible. Now A and B start telling me they have to let it out in the hip ,which they didnt suggest before, AND shorten the straps around my neck. Im terrified that my dress is going to be ruined when I go back in on thursday to pick it up. Im scared to take it somewhere else, they ruin it. I try to take it back to DB and theyre whole “someone else touched it so we cant touch it” policy kicks in. UGH.
