I bought a mermaid dress for my wedding in the Pronovias sample sale.Its a size too big for me and when the lady pinned it back around my body really tight it looked really fitted, slimming and amazing.
I'm a bit worried that when I actually go to get the dress fitted it won't be stitched as tight as she had shown me in the store (as I'm guessing the seamstress will probably adjust it to my measurements) whereas this lady had squeezed me in a bit making my figure look quite nice. The dress doesn't have one of those belts to strap you in so it would really be down to the alterations to give me a nice shape. I hope this makes sense.
I was just wondering, has anyone found that their dress didn't fit as tight and snug as when it was sold?
As my dress is from a sample sale I need to find a seamstress who will be able to alter it for me, unfortunately I couldn't get it done at the store.
