I am supposed to go in for my first official fitting in three weeks and I'm really nervous and scared because I ordered a size 12 when I probably should have ordered a size 14 (I'm sort of between the two). I would like to lose 10 pounds before the end of June and didn't want to end up paying an arm and a leg for alterations so I went with the smaller size. Now the pressue is ON!
I only have a really blurry picture from a cell phone so I'll wait until the beginning of May when I go in for my fitting to post a pic. Anyone else try on a Cassandra or order one??
Just curious.. around how much did everyone pay their Maggies? I ended up getting mine for 1550$ tax inc. I'm in Montreal, Canada so just wondering what the difference in price is between here and the US.
I did the same thing. For me the bigger size was going to be more money and there was no way that I was going to pay more for a bigger size. My measurements were just off on the waist. I need to lose about 3 inches off the waist. So far I have lost half that. My wedding is in July so I still have some time and my first fitting is June 5. My dress Catarina is still not in yet, but everytime the phone rings I panic lol. My maid of honour's dress came in and it does not fit at all. When we went to zip it up it was to tight around the chest. I think they measured wrong. She has gained some weight but it was at least a 4 inch gap. (this is my worse fear for my dress). They can let it out thank god. I was thinking we might have to call in Tommy Europe!
I bought my dress in Port Perry, (just outside of Oshawa On) They were having an amazing sale 25% off if you ordered before the end of the year (2010) but this store is famous for always offering 25%. I paid 1717.00 for my dress. with the discount. I was please with that.
I am now looking for shapewear with a low cut back I think I am going to need some help sucking everything in lol. I did see something online at Victoria Secrets . Hoping they have it in the store so I can try it on. Anyone know of another store that would have low back shapewear?????
