- Wedding: March 2014
I ordered my dress today and got measured. When the lady took my waist measurement, it was a little snug. I’ve always been under the impression that I should be measured loosely. Is that not the case? For example, I was expecting to be 26 inches around the waist, so I was surprised that I measured at a 24. What makes it worse is that the dress I ordered is 23.5 inches around the waist, which they said would fit me (I told them I am losing about 10 more pounds).
Now that I am home and the wedding dress euphoria has passed, I’m panicking more and more. I took my measuring tape out and I’m a 26 “loose” measurement. Help! Did someone have the same problem? Is this normal or should I call the shop back and ask them to re-measure me? I am so worried that it’s not going to fit!
