I just came back from my first fitting and absolutely love, love, love my dress (and my seamstress). I requested that it be made a little tighter at the hips, but she said that if she brought it in any further, I'd have a hard time sitting down (which makes sense); however, while standing, I feel like the dress looks a little lose around the hip area and doesn't put as much emphasis on the mermaid sihouette as I woudld like. It's not super loose, but it's not hugging my hips the way the rest of the dress does.
Anyway, I left my appoint not 100% loving how it looks around my hips and I feel like I'll be standing 80% of the time anyway - who needs to sit, right? If you wore a mermaid/trumpet dress, how tight was it? Any problems with sitting, if so did you really care? Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
