- Wedding: September 2013
My dress came in and I was finally able to try it on tonight. It’s San Patrick Calais, and I had had some dress regret earlier, especially after posting on here and getting a really lukewarm response about my dress. Well, I just wanted to post update pictures, to reassure people that when your real size comes in it makes a huge difference! I tried on a size 8 sample, but ordered an 18. The dress tonight was a bit snug in the armpit/backfat area for my liking, and we didn’t zip it all the way because the zipper kept getting caught, but I have 4 months (exactly!) to lose a couple pounds, and alterations will fix the faulty zipper.
Anyway, here’s the before picture (the size 8 sample)
And here is MY dress in my size (at least approximately my size!). The black bra poking out is not what I’ll be wearing on my wedding day, so no worries…
So, I hope you guys like the pictures, and I hope this helps to ease the fears of any ladies who have dress regret because the sample didn’t fit right…
