I picked up my wedding dress from Alfred Angelo yesterday. I asked them when I should go in for alterations and they told me, "Two months before the wedding."
When I mentioned that my wedding is in 6 weeks, they told me I have to be in by Thursday for alterations or the dress (it's actually a bridesmaid dress) won't be ready for my wedding day!
I'm freaking out a bit since:
1) I ordered the dress a size bigger than the recommended and it's still tight in the chest, and
2) I haven't gotten my undergarments yet. I need a bra that is really supportive since I'm a 38DDD-F and a shaper since my dress is satin and my size 16 hourglass curves are uneven.
There's not much I can do about the dress except have the seamstress take it out, but I need something to life the girls so they fit in the bust at the right place (they're actually sitting about 1" below where the bust stops on the dress).
I'm going to check out Lady Godiva's today, but I'm nervouse since I've heard their service and selection has gone downhill since I last shoppped there 10 years ago for my sophomore prom undergarments.
Does anyone have suggestions on where else I can find supportive, plus-sized bras and shapers?
