- Wedding: June 2013
I need advice from all of my fellow Enzoani Dakota Brides… I have been measured for my dress already but they cannot order the dress with the designer until i have been in to have my ‘hollow to hem’ measured as i need the extra length. The problem here is that they have now given me time to think (always dangerous).
My concern is that when i was measured they obviously took my sizes as they are now, however due to a busy period of parties/weddings/holidays i have recently gained a bit of weight around the tummy (not ideal for ordering my wedding dress).
I am normally around a 12-14 (uk size) and want to make sure i am a 12 for the wedding (i want to look my best possible me).
However when the bridal shop took my measurements and checked them against their size chart for Enzoani, they concluded that i matched closest to a size 18 – I was quite shocked by thisbut the lady at the shop explained that the wedding dress sizes come up a lot smaller – so i am assuming this would be a normal size 16 which is still bigger than my normal size.
My concern is that if i do lose the weight, will the dress fit me properly? The Bridal shop assistant explained that they could adjust the size around the chest and waist but not around the hips.
Has anyone had any similar experiences/advice?
