    Hello ladies,

     

    Today was my try on appt. my dress arrived last week. I was so excited to finally try it on but then when I did I was so disappointed, not because of the dress I still love it.  I imagined the dress fitting like a glove! The sample I tried on looked better ! I know once alteration and everything is done I will fall in love again but until then I have this imagine of a baggy dress in my head!!  I think they ordered a bigger size to hit me with alterations( not nice)

      Sorry to hear that...did they really order a bigger size? Maybe you should take your dress to another shop for alterations and not give them any more business! I have a different concern with my bridal shop...my sample I tried on was too big and they told me I need to order size 0, and I'm so worried that it might not fit!

        I'm originally a 6 in dress sometimes 4 it my dress was ordered a 10!!!!! The consultant said wedding dress sizes are different than normal dresses sizes.  

         

        If they took your measurements and suggested a smaller size you will be fine. Fingerscrosses*** :)

          @ Brendee

           

          Sorry about you disappointment....I can't imagine how after you've tried on the sample,your dress came in a larger size. I  hope that was not done purposely in order to gain profit.  I'm with redginger, if they're charging you a hefty price for alterations, take it to another shop.

            It will be okay after alterations! Just think of it as prolonging the excitement of that one day you try it on and it is perfect!

            I think that once you have the alterations done it will fit how it is supposed to.  I hope they didn't purposly order a sit to big so that you would need alterations, if thats the case I'm with everyone else-take it somewhere else for alterations.

              Same as me. I am a 2 - 4 in clothes & dresses and my shop ordered me a 10 as well! I was freaking out that it would be huge! It came in a few weeks ago & when I went to try it on I was a little disappointed but was glad that it was bigger then smaller. I am short & knew I needed alterations so I didnt care. My shop charges a flat fee so I guess it doesnt matter how much they take inoff.  Dont worry it will all work out & eventually fit you like a glove! Just think if the 10 came in & actually fit you like a glove. I know I would have been crying!!! lol!

                I bought my dress on RK bridal in NY and their alterations prices are under $350 for basic . I'm assuming that shortening the dress and taking in the waist and hip is a basic alteration ! I called today and they told me the reason why is because of my bust. Petite with a C cup . You would think I was huge! I guess I will have to wait to march ...

                  Aww I'm sorry you're disappointed. The good news is they usually order the side that will best fit the largest/widest part of you, then tailor the rest to fit you like a glove. Sounds like you're well on your way. I'm sure it will be stunning.
