Post # 1
My seemstress was highly suggested from the salon and basically anyone I spoke to or saw online. So I trusted her, but I was nervous. It was a strapless dress, so I was worried about it falling down. 2nd fitting comes,It was wrong. She didn’t take anything in on my hips…cause she was worried I wouldn’t be able to move, if you were my height or taller, you would have gotten a pretty epic view of my boobs. So after 30min of arguing with her, she finally shifted around me and saw what I said and agreed to take in some from my hips.
Fitting 3 I was so nervous but she kept telling me it would be perfect. The train was also bustled, so that was part of it. Well I couldn’t see my boobs anymore,but my dress was now hanging. I had the beautiful open lace and beading and it was very obviously sagging. She didn’t take any in around my butt and hips, but said she couldn’t take anymore. So where my butt used to fill out my dress, my dress now hung on my butt. She agreed to fix the sagging and I made her promise she wouldn’t make the top any tighter. Fitting 4 she fixed the top and then I had muffin top. We could barely zip the dress! I almost cried and literally just gave up. My dress was also missing a piece of lace, so a week before my wedding they had to add a bunch of lace to my dress, there was no more time to alter it. My bridesmaids and moh swore it looked perfect and we were able to fix the muffin top,top. That it looked fine in the back.
Now I have my photos and I’m devastated. I had muffin top,in a dress that fit like a glove,then didn’t fit,then was fitting in all the wrong places. I had no butt, nothing was fitting below my chest and skin pouring over my dress.
sorry for the long post. I’m sure I sound like a crazy person, but I’m devastated. I keep trying to think positive and remind myself no one could tell or everyone said my dress was great. My husband keeps saying it was perfect on me. But I just can’t get over how it was supposed to fit and literally did not fit that way on my wedding. It felt like a totally different dress that was squeezing me at the top and loose at the bottom. Am I alone in this? Someone tell me I’m not crazy and this feeling goes away.
