Cuteboy2me: Dress Fitting Nightmare Realized!
Camera Angle #1
Camera Angle #2
I will try to keep this short, but if I don't please stay with me. I REALLY need help!
I had my first fitting today and it was as bad as I had expected. Bad and then some. I knew right from the get go that my dress had cleavage issues. When I was buying my dress I was told that I could order a rhinestone piece to insert in the middle of the gown to cover the cleavage, that was the information from the bridal sales floor. From the seamstress today, she was trying to fill the gap with fabric. That looked atrocious. I am looking for something that is similar to the collection of rhinestones that are in the picture.
I have gained 10lbs since purchasing my dress. So, today I was told that nothing can be done with my dress since it is too tight and it doesn't hang properly. I am booked for another fitting in a months time. The seamstress says there may be enough fabric to let out the sides some, but if I don't lose the 10lbs there is nothing she can do. I almost punched her in the throat. I told her with attitude that between the 2 of us, her letting out the sides and me losing the weight, the dress will fit. I am so pissed (sorry for the language), that I don't even want to try my dress on again.
I know I gained weight and I'm not blaming anyone for that. I only have myself to blame!
I was told that my veil would be upstairs to try on with my dress. The seamstress said, "I told them no. Veils do not belong in the sewing room". I need to get a pin or something to cover the bra and the cleavage, so I wanted to go downstairs to see if they had anything in the store and the seamstress tells me that she doesn't have time for that, she has other clients and she is on a time line. I can respect that, but it is never the message, but the tone that will set me off. This woman was horrible and her tone even worse.
So, my first fitting was that of bridal nightmares. I know I've done this to myself and I've gained the weight. I have to lose the weight. That in no way excuses her ignorance and tone that she took with me or my daughters. It was beyond rude.
After I was out of the dress, I went down to the bridal floor to see if I could find a piece to make work for the cleavage area. I was just left on my own to dig through scraps and bits of fabric with some bling on them. Nothing to be found.
I have never been a big fan of this bridal salon and this experience just hits that home all the more.
My to do list is:
- Lose 10lbs by the middle of August
- Find a solution to the low cleavage, so the bra I have doesn't show through. Solution being a pin or a different type of bra.
Thanks for any and all advice you offer up.
