I feel the same way about my dress. The sample fit perfectly but I wasn’t able to squat enough (I didn’t know squatting mattered!) according to the woman at the bridal shop so she ordered one size up. I haven’t taken my dress to a tailor yet…I’m too worried!

if you have a good seamstress you will be fine – they will tailor that dress to fit you perfectly. No need to worry just yet.

ETA: when you go back for the second fitting don’t be scared to be really vocal about you want and how you want it to look – they wont know if you dont tell them.

That happened to me with my first wedding dress. (I was engaged before this one years ago).

Anyway, the sample size fit PERFECTLY and I was totally in love with it. When my actual dress came in it was tight on top and big on the bottom. NOTHING like the fit of the sample, and I actually hated it. They ordered another one fore me in the next size up to fit my bust and it was even worse than the first one.

I ended up just having them clean the sample dress and I took that one home. Luckily it was a brand new sample so it hadn’t been through a ton of wear and tear.
