Dress Sizing for BM dresses
Posted 10 April 2008 - 05:09 PM
I'm a BM in a Sept wedding and when I went to get measurements taken and order the dress they ordered it 3 sizes bigger than what my street clothes size is. Aside from running small, does anyone know if they usually order it a little bigger in case you gain weight or get pregnant?
Basically I'm asking b/c the dress size devestated me and I'm trying to lose weight by the time I pick it up in June so I'm trying to figure out what size I would be. I know, I know I sound completely nuts but please just bear with me and entertain my fat girl dreams.
Btw it was a Jim Hjelm.

I swear I keep having nightmares that the dress will look like a tent or a parachute on the hanger and everyone will see it, and then I will go try it on and it won't fit! That would be super embarassing! I think I would die.

the bad news is that you will prob have to pay for alterations
but i know you would rather pay the $$ then not lose weight so it's all good!

Don't even get me started on why the do this. Personally I don't understand. They want us to feel like shit? My dress size was HUGE. I'm glad I got it MONTHS before the wedding because it took me time to forget about the size.

Uggh why do they do this? I know its just a stupid number but isn't this supposed to be the happiest time of your life? So why would they make brides feel terrible about themselves.
