Subject: We were meticulous with our measurements, however...
In reply to: TIA 's message, "Curious how much tailoring people typically expect when new dress arrives? Some dresses seem to fit like a glove, but is that really straight out of the box? Are some BNDMs better than others at getting the right fit?" on 20:04:54 07/27/17 Thu

it took a while for Elevation to make the dress, so we resubmitted measurements. They have a meticulous process, so I felt confident.

The dress came a bit tight, enough so across the bum so that we had to take it to a seamstress to let out. She said the hip measurement was EXACTLY her measurements. She suggested that next time, we ADD an inch to the bust and the bum, just in case. A little frustrating to pay MORE to get the dress to fit, but I guess it's pretty hard to get exact fit all the time from far away.

We love the dress though!

  • Fitting dresses from far is hard. Numbers on paper don't describe well exactly how a body is put together. 2 dresses from one dress maker always required alteration. New Dress from Taylor fit like a glove out of the box. Skyped measurements so they could see her. (NT) -- very happy, 13:29:51 07/28/17 Fri
