- Wedding: October 2012
I will give you the background, and hope for the best! I’m due to be married on Saturday, 20 October 2012 in Australia and I recently purchased an authentic Maggie Sottero Kendra wedding dress from a Bridal shop in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
Unfortunately, due to the “professionals” giving me false/wrong advice and now not taking any responsibility for it, I received my gown in a Size 6 US… but need it in a Size 8 US. Again, this Bridal Shop gave me hope by saying the dress could be taken out to practically match the size requirements of a Size 8 US, but my wedding dress alterations lady has found this NOT to be the case, and at best she can take it out a centimetre in the Bust and Waist, but not the Hips due to the seaming.
I’m wondering, and I know completely it’s a long shot, if anyone has the Maggie Sottero Kendra in a Size 8 US in ALABASTER colour and somehow needs the Size 6 US so that we can swap. I understand this is unlikely, but I have to try all avenues because I can’t justify buying a new dress because of this.
I’ve started hardcore dieting to try and lose the kilos and inches, but the hips is where I’m technically a Size 10 (don’t ask me why they allowed me to buy a Size 6 when clearly my hips were never going to fit – they never mentioned my hips being a Size 10 until I tried to return my dress because it doesn’t fit at all).
Please spread the word, or by all means offer helpful advice if you can… I’d really appreciate it 🙂
