Hell yes. I tried on my dress at trunk show and the boobs were way too big and the rest was too tight, and it was supposedly in my size. When my dress actually came in, in my size it fit great. The sample from the trunk show apparently was fitted for someone else probably for a fashion show or something. I loved the dress and knew it would look great so I went for it even though it was so ill fitted from the sample.

I think that any of these will look great when they are in your size and altered. Not sure why he shop girl didn’t clip them for you.

Absolutely! Scroll through my dress posts. I’m small and the original dress sample looked like I was playing dress up. I sent the photo to my bridesmaids and their reactions were all along the lines of “oh no, don’t pick that dress!”. I finally got my dress in the other day and sent everyone the photos and they were loving it. The dress finally had shape and sat properly on me. It was a world of difference.

My shop used rubber tipped aligator clips from the hardware store. Those suckers don’t budge! you could probably do handstands.

@MrsPhilly:  i know this is a few months old now, but did you finally pick a dress?  

 

I had the same concerns as you.  I ordered Marielena and I will be picking it up in a couple of weeks so I will see what she’s like in my size.  I’ve been a nervous wreck waiting to see if she will fit properly in all the right places.
