    i am a street size 8 and the davinci bridal dress is a bridal 14, but i needed it altered down. the 12 was slightly tight in the hips so she ordered it one size up for me just in case i wasnt able to lose enough weight.

    i like the longer one too, i think its "younger" looking and more "me" if ya KWIM. just gotta figure out how to keep my boobies in it though! haha. i ordered the jcrew dress in a 12, only because jcrew stuff seems to run a little small and typically when i buy pants there, they have to be a 10. i ordered a dress there awhile back that was an 8 and it was too tight for my comfort, so i figure by ordering a 12 ill be safe and will need to have it altered for length anyway since im 5'2". the problem for me is that i would order the petite since those are for people under 5'4", but the hips would be too tight because i have stupid wide hips.

    i freakin hate this! i'm short too (5'3") and i firmly believe that just because you need a shorter, more proportionate length, it does NOT mean you are a tiny person all over. so freaking frustrating! i am constantly having to hem things. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    oh i know. i have to have EVERYTHING hemmed, even my freakin jeans. i automatically tack $15 on the price of everything i buy that would require alterations, and if i think $15 extra isnt worth it, i dont buy whatever it is.

    too bad you dont live closer to teach me how to do it. i've been contemplating buying a sewing machine recently, but i have no time really to learn how to do it, and nobody to teach me.

    i totally would teach you my tricks is it really $15 a pair? do you go to the little dry-cleaning shops or to a seamstress?

    $10-15 depending on what it is. i generally go to a dry cleaner because i dont know any seamstresses that are close by where i live.
