Dont take this the wrong way but how much too small is it? Exercisable weight loss amount?

Could she not have the back adjusted to maybe a corset bac and material behind if you know what i mean x

go to wedding shops and ask a seamstress to try and largen it?? they should be able too

i got mine from china ebayer!! you need to order 3xsizes bigger!! they are tiny,,,

i ended up having an insert panel put in by dress maker.............

only option!

cant she return and ask them to issue a replacement or refund to buy another , i brought mine from them and it was too big and they amended it , just had to send back got to them with in 3 days and they sent another.

when ordering surely they would have asked for exact measurements, as I have been looking at some.
I would put a paypal dispute in if that is the case, in the mean time.......hire shops?

Where is your friend based? One of my friends runs a bridal shop and she's having a sale in a couple of weeks to sell off some stock so maybe worth a phone call?

PM me if you're interested and I'll give you her number and link to website.

Tell your friend to invest in a big bag of billy and go clubbing every night for 3 weeks, the weight will soon fall off her.

Bit of running, sensible eating - her fiance will probably appreciate it too.:thumbsup:

If it is "made to measure", your friend would have to give exact measurements of her body frame. 7" too small in the boob section sounds like a major error. If your friend is sure all the measurements she gave were correct then definitely get them to make a new dress. If they are totally in the wrong, then 3 weeks is definitely enough time to get it sorted.

But you also need to factor in that no MTM dress will come out perfect, she will need to bring it to a local seamstress to do a little bit of final altering.

tell her to go topless,a kind of elvis presley themed wedding:thumbsup:

bet shes in a right panic. I agree get her to contact the seller there is probably enough time to fix it but i guess it would have to be an error on there part. best of luck to her, not the kind of stress you need!!

no help but surely made to measure fittings should take about 3-4 fittings/ adjustments

good luck
