I was wondering if someone could give me some advice. I went to London in April to find a wedding dress. I ended up finding a beautiful Peter Langner skirt that I then ordered. It is a bery big skirt and I was already worried about the size of it. It now arrived yesterday and it is DOUBLE the size of the one I tried on.
I have e-mailed the store, who contacted the designer and now both the store manager and the designer are sendng me rude e-mails claiming the skirt is exactly the same as the one I tried on….I have photos of when I tried it on i the store and the one I just received, and you can see there is a huge difference.
What can I do? I based my purchase on the skirt in the store, had I known it would be so different I would never had got it!
ps.tried to attach the photos so you can see the difference but something went wrong….

@lee78: Many samples are worn and the toole or other types of fabric can get weighted down with body oils, being stuffed in racks etc and new fabric can stand up and be stiffer.
Without a picture it is hard to tell if extra layers were added or not.
If it tool or another type of fabric?

I would also say that it probably is the “same” size as the one that you tried on, just that once dresses have been tried on a hundred times the tool/crinoline gets flattened, softened, more touchable. It should be very easy to just go to a local seamstress and have a few of the underneath layers removed, assuming that’s how the skirt is filled.

I’d talk with a seamstress and see if you can have some extra layers taken out. It probably is the same one but just because it is brand new and hasn’t been tried on many times it appears larger/stiffer.
