Help....undergarment questions !

Recommended Posts

I have an appointment for my first dress fitting on friday in Edmonton (a 3 hour drive away) so I called them today to see if I should be bringing anything and they said everything I'm wearing underneath my dress and shoes. Do you think I have any of that?.....NO! So the question is for a strapless dress what do you reccomend strapless bra or bustier and why?

 

Also (oh yes theres more) for shoes I really haven't decided between flip flops or barefoot and am pretty sure I dont want a heel so do you think that will be a problem when measuring the bottom of the dress? I really wish I thought about these things more than 3 days before :) Ugh!

Can I just ask if your wedding date is next February, why are you having a dress fitting appt so early? You usually don't have your first dress fitting until 3 months before your wedding. That doesn't mean you can't go try on your dess and think about shoes, undergarments (bring a variety to try on or ask the dress shop if they have some to experiment with) and accessories. But they shouldn't be pinning and cutting anything this early, IMO.

Kris, where are you going for your fitting? I got my dress from Bridal Debut in Sherwood Park.

I agree with the other girls that the fitting shouldn't be until November.

Hey ...reallyhuh.gif? Now I'm stressed haha! I bought it at Pure Bridal. I found it in January, they ordered it and it arrived in June. Nobody ever said anything to me about waiting for the fitting. I guess it's in case your body changes (Though I've weighed the same since I was in grade 9 wink.gif Yikes, should I be cancelling this.....I really didn't want to have to drive that highway in the winter sad.gif

Kris - if you're not worried about your body changing at all, there's no rule that says you can't do the fitting earlier - I was just pointing out that there was no need to decide undergarments and shoes in 3 days and rush to get it done when you have plently of time. Maybe reschedule for September/October so you don't have to drive in winter but have more time to decide what you want to do about undergarments and shoes. Regardless of when you do your first fitting, I would suggest bringing both types of undergarments to see what works best with the dress or asking if they have sample ones you can try.

Kris-

I would definitely re-schedule. That way you won't stress out and you will have the time to buy the shoes you want and the undergarments you need. There really is no need to go for a fitting this early. You don't want to rush yourself and then regret things. I shopped at Pure Bridal and didn't have a very good experience there- the consultant I had was NOT very knowledgeable at all!! Oh well... Godd luck with everything- I know it will be fine!!!

Really? That sucks, I found them to be the most helpful of all the salons in calgary and Edmonton haha I guess it depends on who you get....Also I really wanted a pronovias dress so that kind of limited my salon choice.

I just phoned the salon, I think Im just going to take the dress on friday (make sure everything is ok with it and the color is right) and bring it back to calgary to get altered (that way if I have to do more than one fitting I don't have to keep driving out there)
