        That bites!! I was really concerned about it too but the only thing I had done was to have it shortened and to have a bustle added. I think it helped that I got a corset back, it's alot easier to "mold" the dress to your body that way. Maybe the seamstress could add one (assuming it's not) and that would help? I don't know what problems you're having or if it would go with the dress style but it's a suggestion..

              LOVE this thread by the way.. i just read the whole thing! Nothing better to do when you cant sleep than come on BDW website! Anyway.. I actually bought my Maggie "Reese" dress before reading this so I did pay all that money, but I've decided I DO NOT want to trash that dress and any of you that know what the dress looks like would understand :) So I want a seperate TTD.. I cant seem to find the one I want anywhere! Not used..nothing. I want the Maggie Sottero "Melanie." I just messaged Landy's bridal and they want almost $400 for it and I dont want to spend that much on a dress that I will wear one hour to trash! Since some of you are a little more advanced at this maybe you can help me! I am writing gianinarbridal soon after this to get a quote from them! At max I was looking to spend $150! Maybe I am crazy and thats too cheap, but I already spent lots of money on my Reese! Which I might add is the awesomest DW dress! I highly recommend it!! Thanks so much girls!

                I really wanted to buy a knock off dress, or at the very least buy from an online store a dress I would have tried on in the store. But when I went to try dresses today I gave in to the pressure of the saleslady.

                Don't get me wrong, I love my dress, I just don't like the fact that I've already been able to find it online for almost half the price and it's only been 5 hours.

                  Dont be so hard on yourself. It happened to me with my last dress. Just know it fits, its the one and forget about searching for it over the net =). Trust me i found my dress $400 lower than what i purchased it from but everything happens for a reason trust me.

                    Thanks. You're right, what's done is done and the most important thing is that I have a beautiful dress that fits.

                      I saw your dress on another thread, and it is beautiful! Remember that for us Canadians we usually always overpay compared to US pricing. That's why I shop in Vermont for most of my clothes!
