It fits like a dream… almost.. it was a bit snug but I still have until February to lose that 5 pounds which I think is totally doable. Other than that, it fit everywhere including the length. I may not even need alterations which pleasantly surprised me as I was expecting it to be too long on me. I feel that my decision to go this route was meant to be and all my anxiety went away. I am so excited and the horrible thoughts I had in the past week prior to receiving the dress are now gone. I just can’t stop staring at it. I don’t know how to take a picture of myself in the dress yet. This is kind of hard to do it alone. It is the Casablanca 1975. It was brand new with tags, there were two tags on the dress, the type you have to break off in order to wear the dress. One of the tag is attached to the dress and the zipper so you can’t pull down the zipper without breaking off the tag. Not only I feel good for paying less for this dress, I felt good I was able to help out a private owner who needed to sell her dress.
I just wanted to share a preowned wedding dress success story in case anyone is thinking about that route. I paid $400 less than retail was asking for which included the 15 percent off if I chose to take their sample dress. The sample dress at retail was too long and I would have had to pay another $160 just to have it hemmed.
