What did the store say about the fact that it came back to you without being altered?!

Edit: never mind! Misread your post! Sorry!

If the manager checked your seams, told you it could be let out up to two inches, and acted like it wouldn’t be a big deal, I would probably not worry too much about it. I know, easier said than done.  But they would be up front with you if you if they really couldn’t do anything about it, right? Since you have your dress with you, maybe you could take it to a local seamstress/alterations place to get a second opinion.  Don’t stress yourself out with trying to lose weight that you really don’t need to.  🙂

@megn133:  I think that’s a good idea to let out the dress even with losing the weight.  You’re right, you don’t want to drive yourself crazy!

@megn133:  Hunny you need to take CONTROL of your situation. Don’t wait around for someone to give you a call back and don’t leave any more messages with anyone anymore. Drive right on over to the dress shop and ask to speak to the manager. Don’t call! It will be harder for them to “shu” you away when you’re standing right in front of them. Calmly explain the situation and how this is not your fault since the expert in the store told you that the size 4 is your size. They need to fix this problem by either fixing the dress, and if they can’t, then they owe you a dress, period. If you’re not the confrontational type, take a friend or relative who is that will stand by your side when you go. One of my best friends is the go to person that I ask to help me out in situations like this. She won’t back down and take no for an answer and neither should you. Be more firm and don’t leave until someone gives you some type of concrete solution. If they say they need time to see what they can do, explain your wedding right around the corner and that you’ll be back tomorrow to see what will be done. Raise hell if you need to. If you show them you’re not going away, they will have to listen to you take you seriously. 

Good luck and keep us posted!!!

@megn133:  I’m so glad they are going to attempt to fix this for you….I got a little sick to my stomach for you reading this.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you!  Please keep us updated how it turns out.
