So, I picked up my dress last Saturday. Its a label size 12, and I'm normally a size 4 or so.
When I bought the dress the lady said she could alter it to fit perfectly.
I tried it on after she had already altered it, told her it felt good except for up top. So she added some double padded cups to it and sent me out the door. I assumed it would be fine. . . WRONG.
From my mid-section down things are great. But the whole size 12 up in the chest section is kind of scary. I don't want to have to worry about going to hug someone and my girls coming out!
Of course, when I got home I tried it on just to make sure it fit comfortably. I even taped the girls up to try and get my dress to work, which of course it doesn't because it still needs taken in quite a ways in the back to be tight against my body.
I'm afraid the lady didn't feel comfortable with the alterations in that area and that's why she sent me out the door before having me try it on again.
My dress is lace and I don't really think some stitching would be that noticeable along the sides, but there are rods that run along each side that make it a little difficult to be done. Altering in the back wouldn't work either because that's where it zips and has button closures.
I'm debating on calling the lady to see if there is anything she could do. Or trying to seek out and find someone else. Or if there is another resolution that might help without having to alter!
Help, please! I know there has to be ladies that have had this same dilemma!
Thanks in advance.
