I was so excited to finally see my actual dress, some 5 months after ordering it. I loved the dress when I tried it on and was so excited about it. I went last night to "inspect" it and try it on. It fits and it's by no means "terrible"...but I don't feel the same about it. It didnt seem to lay in the right places. I'm not saying I think it's a different dress, it is certainly the same dress but some things seem different to me. I think my main issue is that the fabric it is made out of seems different than the sample (it seems to feel cheaper now almost like they used a better quality to make the sample dress than my actual dress)...Something about it just doesn't seem "right" and I certainly am no longer in love with it. Partly I know the lighting was bad this time and I know that the sample was a huge size so it looked different, but you would think that I'd like the dress more when it fits, but I dont.
I've been comparing the photos of me in the sample dress to me in my actual dress all day and I can't figure out what exactly it is (aside from the fabric). Now, I'm just not sure what to do.
Has anyone else experienced this? Did you eventually get over it? Did you try to compare the dress to the sample to determine whether they did actually use a different fabric? Do you think I need a new dress? I really want to love it and feel beautiful, and right now I just feel disappointed.
