Long story short I bought a dress online from a pre-owned wedding website – stella york 6025. I bought it to fit my largest measurements and it needed minimal alterations to the length and bust. The waist fit me perfectly when i got it. I am small chested and have a wider waist. My seamstress took in the side of the waist along with the bust and it was a struggle to zip it up and I cant breathe in it. Its super tight on my rib cage. She kept insisting that it needs to be tight to stay up. I stood my ground and asked her to please let it out to its original state. She let it out but its still too tight and the bust is still too big. She was insisting that I looked beautiful but I know what too tight is and I did not need the added pressure to try to lose weight. I finally took it home and sought a second opinion. My new seamstress took a look and thankfully there is a seam allowance and she is letting it out a full 3 inches in the waist. I am praying that it fits me perfectly.
