I know a lot of you have selected this gown for your destination weddings! Had a question for all of you:
I brought my gown in for alterations this past weekend and was really pleased with the experience. One thing I was surprised by is that rather than sewing in cups as I had expected, the seamstress wants me to buy a strapless bra that she would alter and then sew into the dress. She says that it will not show or mess with the way the dress lays, but that it will give me more support and lift. Sounds good in theory, as I'd like to see my gals looking their best, but I have never heard of this. I'm also worried about the low-back and how that will work out. This is the first thing I've ever had altered to me other than pant length, so I'm not especially confident. The Yelp reviews for this lady are great, but I have no idea how to tell from my experience how this will turn out and I am nervous.
Anyone have any experience with this? Did anyone DO this with their Reese? Reasons to go one way or the other?
Thanks for any thoughts and experiences!
