I think that you have a right to complain and see if they will let them out at no cost. If not, do you have the time to return them and look someplace else? I bought my Bridesmaid dresses at Banana Republic on clearance for $17 each. When I bought them, they had the dresses available in size 0-16. Maybe go look around and see if there is something that you like that you can buy off a rack to find out if returning the other ones is a viable option before you start negotiating with the shop where the current dresses are. I’d be livid.

I’ve never heard of bm dresses not being altered.

I would also think that the girl that measured as a 10 but ordered an 8 will be out of luck, as the samples are very often stretched, and not an accurate measure of the 8’s.  I suspect she would have had to sign a waiver.

If the one other didn’t try on the sample, it may just be that she carries her weight differently, and the dress doesn’t fit.

I would just get them altered.  To me it’s part of getting a bridal store Bridesmaid or Best Man dress.
