Most of the time, they will have a sample size, and it’ll either be bigger or smaller than your size. If it’s bigger they will clip it on so you can see how it would look, if it’s smaller you can still try it on, you just wont be able to zip or lace it up.

They probably won’t order a dress specifcally for you to try on. Many women try on 10 or more dresses without finding one they love.

Yes, I did exactly this. However, the shop charged me £40 for it! They got it from another store in London I think. It was a Maggie. I’m glad I did it as I wanted to try the dress badly and could not locate it in my area. However, do check what size they can get it in for you as I seem to remember most of the samples available to order in were 8’s which is ridiculous given the average woman in the UK is a 14.

I have heard of this but for a fee, like $50-100 per dress to bring in. But then if you order any dress from that store they credit it back to you.
