You said that you’ve already tried it on.  What about the dress was different then than it is now?  Was it a different between Misses and Petite?  That tends to make a huge difference in any clothes, but especially dresses.  Either way, I’d say that alterations can help to an extent, unless it’s not Petite.

I think alfred angelo’s size chart is way off.  I did the same as you – ordered an 8, street size 6 – and when the dress came in it was GIGANTIC.  I altered that baby big time, and it ended up looking fine.  There was also another Bridesmaid or Best Man dress that I wore (from bella bridesmaid) that was like the most unflattering thing ever – I’m taking the size 0 girls looking like they were 5 mo preggers – and no amount of tailoring would fix it 🙁  It’s worth a try though …

Maybe talk to the bride and when you have it altered possibly have it turned to a tea or cocktail length dress if she would be okay with that.. you’d probably feel a lot less like you were drowning in fabric that way.

I think the alterations will make it work.  It’s a lovely dress and I bet it will look better once the length is right.

alterations will help a lot… if you get it fitted perfectly at the bust, then that will define your figure and the rest of the dress will flow down nicely. I’d also wear nice high heels to give yourself some height.

Yeah I actually really like the dress.  I’m sure after alterations you won’t look so bad.  But, I gotta say, I wouldn’t say much to the bride.  I’d send her a picture of me in the dress and see what she says.  I may just be a bit too sensitive because I have a couple BM’s that are so vocal about their dislikes (about themselves and thus the dress) that I wanna punch ’em in the throat.  Not that you’d be as obnoxious!  But sometimes it hurst feelings knowing your girls don’t like something you chose for them, ya know?

sure!  Hope they help, even though the styles arent the same, and my pictures aren’t very clear (they were the best I have, sorry!)

A good tailor can work miracles.  Take it to someone really good and see what they say.

If you haven’t had it altered yet, then don’t waste your time worrying. Bridesmaid or Best Man dreesses are meant to be altered.  If it fit in the store it will be fine,

It looks like it should be such a wearable dress!  I bet alterations will help a lot.
