Wedding dress: mission fitting
Repeat after me: "Trying is our everything!". That's why, when it comes to "the" dress, fittings are very-very-very important. Even if You have a super-duper designer dress, but poorly adapted to the curves of Your body — it won't cost a tenth of the cost on the price tag.
Here are some useful tips that will help avoid constantly slipping or compressing dress.
1. Time management.
Quantity of fittings should be at least 2 (in the ideal case). It is advisable to come with wedding footwear, so you can customize the dress according to Your high including the heel height. If You don't have shoes, add +1 fitting in the schedule. A break between fittings is normally 7 days if you have a very large alteration, for example, the corset or breast cups, such alterations can take up to 14 days.
Accordingly, the 2 fittings are 2 weeks of time.
If you know You'll order it from abroad, keep in mind the period of delivery.
Final fitting should be held no later than 2 weeks before the wedding.
2. Budget of fittings.
In the case of buying a dress in the salon for the fitting an extra fee will not be charged. However, if You order it at an atelier or from abroad — for every adjustment or alteration there may be a price. Check for yourself the cost of a difficult fit and an easy rework.
3. "I will definitely lose a couple of kilos before the wedding!"
Never buy a too small dress that You think will be Your incentive to lose weight. It’s almost never possible to accurately and certainly predict how much weight You will lose. Unless Your personal trainer and nutritionist will make You a program. It’s much easier to take in a large than to enlarge a small one. 40% of dresses are with corsets — this is very easy way to adjust it according to Your body.
Wish you good fittings!
