Why would the latest you can do your first fitting be in July if your wedding is in October???  My wedding is next Saturday and my dress arrived TODAY!  (not by choice) and so I had my first fitting today….. they told me that alterations can be done within 24 hours if need be….. so I don’t know why you can’t wait until September to do your fittings?  And that’s plenty of time to lose a few lbs if that’s what you want.

I’m so sorry this happened.  You have a little time to try and lose weight if you can but thankfully you have a corest dress that can be altered to work either way.  I wouldn’t stress out completely because you have a good fix but understand the stress.

@JessChris1020:  July 1st is the latest you can do your first alterations appointment? That seems so early! My wedding is in 5 weeks and I haven’t even done my first alterations appointment yet. Anyway, on to the issue – did the consultant measure you or just take a guess at the size? Was the sample size 16 way too big or just a little big because usually they are a little stretched out from being tried on so much and the consultant should know that. If she never measured you I would tell them they need to order you a new dress in the right size and have it there by July 1st so you cab gace your first alterations appointment.

I agree with @OliveT: also.  I got my fittings two months before my wedding so you probably have more time.

Not fair to you. I’d raise hell bc they made you get a sz too small!!! You shouldn’t have to pay when you insisted on a 16!!

Yep – this isn’t your fault. They ordered the wrong size, so they need to fix it. Plus, you shouldn’t be under any pressure to lose weight because of their mistake. Good luck.

Not your fault!

The shop is at fault here!

I’m so sorry they did that.

The only advice I can give is try to lose some weight before July 1st, and then add a panel if you have to. I’m really sorry this happened, I would fight the salon.

I morally agree with the posters who are saying it’s not your fault, but unfortunately I have to legally disagree.  No one FORCED you to sign that contract for a 12.  You could listen to their recommendations all day long but in the end you signed the dotted line for a 12 so you are bound to it.  Now this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t raise hell with all levels of management, but unfortunately you’re probably not going to get very far.  (Trust me, I went through this as well.)

If you genuinely want to lose weight, then do it safely.  Consider WW or modifying your diet.  But if not, just go with the alterations.  It’s a shame they put you in this situation but you absolutely still have time to make it work.
