I had my dress alterations done several months ago and was really happy with the work that was done. Recently I've been having dress regret so I invited a few lady friends over to drink wine and help me get back into my dress to (hopefully) rekindle the magic. When I got it back on I loved it again and still felt beautiful however I was really regretting having cups sewn into the dress. I have a relatively small bust and I'm very comfortable with that but the cups made it look like I had just tried to stuff my bra. Ugh.
So last night I frantically called/emailed several bridal alterationists to schedule a rush appointment to have the bra cups taken out of my dress and the bust taken in. Got an appointment for this afternoon and rushed there, got the dress on, and had the cups snipped out to find out that it fits perfectly without them and I could have done this myself EASILY (but of course I was worried about accidentally ruining something.
The ladies in the shop were like, "Well…. Can we do anything else….?" My silliness cost me ten bucks (consultation fee) but at least it's done now I suppose! And the most important thing is that I actually feel like myself in the dress now.
