My dress came in, and it's too small!

Recommended Posts

I went to visit my dress on Friday, and it was too small! It zips up but I think I popped a rib out of place to get it zipped up! sad.gif They lady at the shop said I need to loose 1 to 2 inches to fit in the dress. She said this like it's not a hard thing to do which annoyed me a little. So now I'm all stressed out about my dress, am I going to loose some weight? Is the dress going to fit? What if it doesn't? sad.gif If I don't loose the weight hopefully they'll be able to take it out a couple of inches.

Oh dear.

Did they measure you in the shop if they did and you havnt grown then i wouldnt be letting them anywhere near with pins to take it out.If its there faux pas then tell them straight you need them to rush order a new dress two inches is one dress size.Quite honestly i dont know where you could loose the weight from and for it not to affect your whole look.Is it worth walking up the aisle maga skinny with you not looking anything other than waif like.

Be strong if its there muck up demand a rush order, yes you have time but theres no way you are leaving your nerves janggerling because it hasnt been smooth sailing so far.

It will be worth the stress lol its a very pretty dress xx

Well I definitely agree with you that it is not that easy to lose an inch or two, but I know you can do it. On the bright side, the dress looks FABULOUS!

oh no i'm sorry!! from the back pics, it doesn't look like it's too tight at all. but of course you want to be comfortable. I'm sure you'll be fine. try not to stress b/c it might make you gain weight. honestly, from the pics it doesn't look like you need to lose any weight at all, it seems like you have a thin frame already so maybe you will need to have the dress let out a little so you can be comfortable. that should be easy for a good salon.

Honestly, the dress looks great.. It really doesn't look to small at all.. BUT, you want to feel comfortable in it. If the dress store measured you, they should order you a new dress!!!! THey are the ones who messed it up....I really don't see that you could lose 2 inches anywhere you look small to start with. I would get on the store to order you another dress if they are the ones who messed up the measurements. IF all else fails, there is probably a little give in the sides where someone could take it out a little. or maybe you could bargain for alterations for free , thats if they are able to take it out.

This happened to me too. The store rush ordered a new one and I had it in 2 weeks. You do not need to lose weight! It looks like your wedding is next February...why aren't they ordering a new one?? Oh...also for mine the dress didn't match the meaurements they sent in! It was the designers fault!

First, I don't think you need to lose 1-2 inches to make the dress fit. You are so tiny as it is. See if they can let the dress out, or if they screwed up ordering it (my bridal shop did!) see if they can get you a new one asap. You have time!!

 

However, you look beautiful in your dress! Comfort is a must though. You don't want to be miserable.

Oh no!! They should definitely take responsibility for this and find a solution... not asking you to lose weight! Maybe you could have it altered into a corset (lace-up) back?

first of all, you and the dress look beautiful! 2nd, im appalled someone would say that, how very unprofessional! not to mention completely whacked. you dont have and inch or 2 to spare, and even if you did there was obviously some mistake made in the measuring or ordering process. why on earth would they measure you then order the wrong size?

 

hmmmm, im also wondering if it could be possible the dress is mis-labeled? is there a way to try on the sample dress in the same size to see how it fits? if the sample in the same size fits fine, the dress could be made incorrectly or mis-labeled.

 

either way, be firm and tough about it! this is a big costly mistake and you should NOT be responsible to fix it.

 

good luck!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
