Ok, I guess I am a special mutant, a 00p bride is rare, and most of the sample dress was in size 8 or 10! They put like 5 clips or more ..sometimes extra hands from humans to hold the dress on me. Dress shopping was a weird experience. However, it is VERY important to try on diff style and color before ordering! Don't just judge based on pics, unless you are a super model mutant!
As I mentioned, ask a tailor or seamtress to take ur measurements ( DON'T DIY, I repeat...no DIY or u will regret it), and tell the dressmaker your concerns. For example, like myself, I look like a bamboo mutant, so I make sure that the dressmaker add EXTRA features to keep the dress holding up. I repeated several time that the measurements MUST be exact, or else..the dress will slide down. My bestpal is a Barrel Mutant like a 42-40-43, so I made sure the dressmaker add extra bones, extra stiffness to give the dress an A-shape..so she doesn't look like a burrito. Be precise, exact..and repeat several times...and please be nice to the rep...build a good relationship will also help a lot!
If you wanna sit down and an easy to make dress...Dress #1
If you wanna look like a curvy mermaid goddess, and don't expect to sit on a chair with the dress (i.e. if you got another more comfy reception dress), then dress #2 is the one.
