We all want to look stunning when we go out and a good spot to start is with a good fit. Fiddling with an ill-fitting gown all night might turn heads…but not for the right reason.
There are a few things to consider to achieve a great fit. For complete peace of mind try on the style you like as well as at least one other. What looks good on the 6’ tall size 8 model in the magazine or on the computer may not look good on you.
When trying on, listen to people whose fashion advice you trust. Try on the gown in your size or a size that is close to your size. Buying a gown straight off the rack means you get to try on the actual dress and you know immediately whether it will need minor alterations to fit or if it is a major job.
To avoid stress make sure you book in early for alterations. Make sure you have your alterations done by a reputable seamstress or tailor. Ask to see some of their alterations. Make sure you have your actual shoes and any undergarments you are going to wear on the night at your dress fitting.
