Okay so I get this call today about my dress. They say that they just got word from the designer that it's being discontinued! I knew something would come up and I knew I should question why one visit they couldn't find it for me to try on again and why it was cheaper than most of the dresses there, etc....

 

Anyway, they say that the designer isn't cutting anymore of those but that they have a size 12 in stock. Now when I ordered it last week, they measured me at a size 12 and I requested a size 10. So that is why they called to tell me to see if it was okay that they order that one instead.

 

My only concern was alterations. I know everyone says they are going to loose weight, but I AM!!! I am on a strict diet and exercise regime and I hope and really think I will end up in a size 8 or even if lucky a 6 (maybe a little unrealistic). I wasn't sure how many sizes they can alter down? So they told me 4 sizes and so I told them to go ahead and order it.

 

I hope there are no other issues and that I made the right decision? I mean, I was already late w/ the ordering and thought I would have to do it rush...turns out that since they have it already cut, they will ship it w/in 2 days and it should be here w/in two weeks!!!!! Plus I don't want to have to try on more dresses! I'm over it!

 

A part of me feels, wow, this turned out pretty good...the other part of me can't help but feel, god I hope this isn't just the beginning of many more issues w/ this dress and then I end up with the wrong one or whatever! UGH!!!!

Can you negotiate with the store to reduce the price of your alterations, or eliminate the alterations cost since they were not able to tell you correctly about the dress availability?

oh that's a good idea....I think when it comes in...I will ask about that and try and get any deal i can. They kinda told me that based on my measurements I would have to have it taken in anyway because my hips are much wider than my top blah, blah...I didn't even put in the original post...they said the alterations would run $300+

 

But that is a good point. Thanks!

Great idea, Tami! Michelle, they should definitely pay for at least some of the alterations. If you lose a lot of weight, 4 sizes is going to be a lot of alterations.

Uhhh,,,I would think that they should have told you that prior to you ordering. Then in that case, they would have just offered you the sample in the store.
But, maybe they really don't know until the designer contacts them.

yeah michelle, i think you should call them back and tell them youre concerned about alterations costing a lot since you ordered a dress larger than you need, see if you can get that squared away upfront so you dont get charged a bunch later. ps $300 for alterations, seriouslyhuh.gif??
