  • THE BRIDESMAID’S GUIDE TO THE PERFECT DRESS

    As a key member of the bride's entourage, you have been entrusted with two primary responsibilities: accompanying the bridal party during dress shopping and grace the wedding day with your impeccable presence. In anticipation of these forthcoming events, I would like to address a pivotal task that requires your attention. You are going to need to head on over to a tailor or seamstress to alter your dress. So, how do you know if your dress will even need alterations and when they’ll need to be done? Or how much are they going to cost?  First, before even considering the alterations, you must remember when ordering your bridesmaid dress, please keep in mind that there is typically NO extra fabric in the seams for letting the dresses out. In case your measurements fall between two sizes, it is advisable to order the larger size and have it adjusted later. Remember, it is always simpler to take in a dress than to let it out. HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED MY DRESS TAILORED? This complicated question has a simple answer: If the dress doesn’t fit you properly, you need alterations. By adjusting the garment, you can ensure a perfect fit that complements your body. Alterations are crucial, ladies. You’re going to want to look and feel your best on the wedding day and in the photos that live on forever, so they’re a must! When it comes to a long day of standing, dancing, and posing for photos, being comfortable is just as important as looking great. Photo:   Bella Bridesmaids Las Vegas Now that we agree that alterations are a MUST, let’s discuss the most common kinds:   1. HEM THE LENGTH   You can't always produce something out of nothing, despite 50 Cent's catchphrase. Since there's no ideal method to lengthen a gown, most designers tend to make them longer to accommodate ladies of varying heights. It's likely that you may need your gown shortened by a few inches if you are shorter than 5’8”. Additionally, if you are tall, the dress might need to be purchased with extra length added. This usually adds six inches, so once the dress comes and you've chosen your shoes, you might need to have it hemmed to the proper length. Even if you just need one or two of the five, the bride will appreciate that she won't have to see your toes next. 2. TAKE IN THE BUST For those that are pear-shaped, you’ll need a dress big enough to fit your hips and derriere. But the bodice might be too loose. Tailors/seamstresses can take in the bodice (usually at the side seams), so the dress fits properly over your bust, and you are completely free to bust a move. 3. TAKE IN THE WAIST AND HIPS If you have more endowed breasts, you may have to go up a size or two to fit your bust. But then, the dress’s waist and hips might be too big. Like taking in the bust, a tailor/seamstress can normally take in the waist and hip, so the dress fits you from head to toe. 4. SHORTEN THE STRAPS   Unless you’re wearing a strapless dress, you must consider the length of the straps. Whether your gown has spaghetti straps or wide ones, they must be the perfect length. Otherwise, they’ll be slipping off your shoulders all day long. If they are not already the right length, a tailor can shorten them for you. WHAT TO BRING TO A DRESS FITTING Obviously, you must bring your dress to the fitting. But there are a few other things you’ll want to bring as well. Make sure to bring the shoes you plan to wear on the wedding day. That’s the only way to ensure you’ll have the proper hemline. You should also bring or wear the undergarments you will wear with the dress. A lot of bridesmaid styles already have built-in bra cups, but if you plan on wearing a bra, put it on when you try on the dress at the consultation. This way, you’ll get the perfect fit. If you plan on wearing any other shapewear, bring that too. Apart from glam (like jewelry and hair accessories), you should bring everything to the fitting that you are going to wear on the big day. WHEN SHOULD YOU HAVE ALTERATIONS DONE? Here’s a tip that’ll save you a lot of headaches: Never wait until the last minute to try on your dress or get your alterations.  Schedule a fitting approximately one month before the wedding. Some women prefer to do it earlier, and that is fine too but don’t wait until the last minute. Call well in advance of the time you would like to schedule as these specialty seamstresses’ appointments fill quickly. Want an appointment in September for an October wedding, call to set that September date in July.   If you think your dress needs extensive adjustments, schedule your consultation about six weeks in advance. That way, you’ll have time to do a second fitting and a final fitting when the tailoring is completed. Remember, during peak wedding season (June to October), bridal seamstresses get busier than toy stores at Christmas time. So, schedule your fitting as far ahead as possible to make sure you get an appointment. And don’t forget this one crucial step:  About one week before the wedding, try the dress on at home to ensure it still fits. Do not wait until the morning of the wedding to find out you can’t zip it up! HOW MUCH DO BRIDESMAID DRESS ALTERATIONS COST? The price of alterations varies depending on where you live, but most bridesmaids can expect to pay between $125 and $250 for bridesmaid dress alterations. In some cities, tailoring can cost closer to $300. It all depends on what the dress needs.   For example: Just shortening the hem or straps? If yes, that will be less than a dress requiring more alterations, like taking the sides in. Hemming a bridesmaid dress is normally between $90 and $130 depending on the number of layers and types of fabric. Dress details are another factor that makes a huge difference in the cost of alterations. Gowns with beading and sequins, while beautiful and totally reminiscent of  The Great Gatsby , take more time and skill to alter. You will pay a bit extra to look like Daisy. CONCLUSION Having the proper alterations is a  must . You want your hem to move gracefully and for your straps to lay nicely on your shoulders. However, please remember; you will probably only wear this dress one time. You need to determine to what extent you want to have your dress altered. Do you REALLY NEED to have the waist taken in? Or can you get by with just hemming the gown?   A good tailor or seamstress will make your dress look and fit stunningly. So, finding the right one is essential! And if you don’t know one, ask for recommendations. Check Google ratings! Be sure to book your fitting well in advance. Bring your shoes and undergarments with you!   Spending a little time and money on getting fit BEFORE the big day ensures smooth sailing the day of.  And that will keep you smiling from photos to the dance floor - all day long.

  • Dazzle in a Strapless Wedding Dress

    Choosing the perfect wedding dress can be overwhelming, especially when considering strapless dresses. While they have a magical quality that can make you feel beautiful, it's important to note that they also come with a frustration factor. It's essential to be comfortable in whatever dress you choose for your special day. If you are not comfortable in strapless garments, it is advisable to avoid opting for a strapless dress. Your comfort and confidence on your wedding day are of utmost importance. It is essential to understand that all strapless dresses share a common feature: boning. Therefore, knowing how to assess the boning content of the strapless dress being considered for purchase is crucial for success. The placement and type of boning will determine whether the dress fits perfectly or causes discomfort. Regrettably, not all wedding dress designers comprehend the structural requirements of a strapless dress. A poorly designed dress may compel the bride to repeatedly adjust it, while a well-designed dress will remain securely in place, allowing the bride to enjoy her celebration without any concerns of sagging, biting, drooping, or shifting. I have seen many strapless dresses that have insufficient or no boning. The best advice I can give you is: DO NOT BUY ONE OF THESE. Here are the essentials you need to understand about boning. How to identify boning in a dress. Boning is a strip of stiff plastic that is sewn into the inside of a garment to give it support. Sometimes it's sewn into the lining or, as with many wedding dresses, there is an extra corselet designed inside the dress where the boning is set. Boning comes in several forms. One is a solid plastic stick that is wrapped with a thin cotton fabric sheath. It is the sheath that is sewn into the garment and secured at each end, so the boning stays put. There are many other forms of boning, from other variations of the plastic strips to metal plates that go from super stiff to very flexible metal mesh strips that offer support while allowing the wearer a great range of movement. For strapless dress's boning is sewn into the bodice to give it structure. Usually at seams, it can also be found placed strategically to add structure to other design elements of a garment like a heavily decorated bust line. It is usually sewn to the lining of a bodice, so it does not show any impression on the outside of the bodice. To find where boning is one must poke at the bodice until you feel the strip. This can be done while the garment is on or off the body. It's not difficult to feel the boning even if the garment is heavily beaded. How boning works. There is a popular misconception that a lady needs large breasts to hold up a strapless dress. I can't tell you how many times I've heard someone tell me, "I just don't have enough to hold up this dress.” Proper strapless design has nothing to do with the women's breast size. Boning is used in a dress bodice to provide the structure to hold the dress up most of the time. Just as I have stated in other places, “your breasts don't get supported by the dress.” The reverse is also true - the dress is not supported by your breasts. Boning is properly placed in a bodice vertically, running from neckline to the waist seam. Often boning is set past the waist to stop well into the hip area and it is sometimes found in horizontal strips in various places in the bodice. It is placed to the waist so it can push against the top of the hip up. The waist area of the bodice needs to be snug to support this pushing point. The neckline should not be snug, so it does not compete with the base of the boning or produce flabby flesh pockets at the top of the bodice. This not only feels odd but looks very unsightly in wedding photos. In a wedding dress, the minimal amount of boning should be in each side seam and princess seams, front and back. That's 6 strips. Each strip should run from the neckline to at least the waist. It’s not unusual to find up to 16 strips in a bodice. Six strips are minimal but the more boning the better. Strapless dresses with a low dipping back neckline have a difficult time staying secure even if they are generously boned. Another important factor in bodice security is the back neckline. Though very dramatic, low back necklines lessen the result of the work boning is trying to do to add structure to the bodice. The lack of fabric in the back shifts the boning's push from the waist and redirects it towards the front of the dress. This gives the bride the unhappy feeling that her chest might get exposed if she tries to dance or give a hug to a loved one. Two activities she will be wanting to do often during her reception. Looking good in a strapless dress is one-part dress design and one-part posture. There are only so many things any dress can do to make you look good. Strapless dresses are designed in a special way to sit on a lady's body to show off her assets in the best way. Many a lady who puts on a strapless dress for the first time feels very odd if she has no idea that there is a special posture she needs to have to make the dress sit correctly. This has nothing to do with the way most woman normally sit or stand. It is also not that soldier stance that has you setting your shoulders ridged. It is a straight back stance where your shoulders are back slightly but softly. Think of it as squeezing your shoulder blades together and easing them down your back. Your bust does perk up and show more prominently, but it's not that sticking-your-chest-out soldier stance. Another way I tell brides to think of it is, maintaining contact with the bodice front. The skin of your breasts will be in full contact with the bodice front. Keep them in contact and they will be set into the design of the dress as they were meant to be and show off your figure to its best advantage. #wedding #weddingdress #weddingdressalterations #seamstress #alterations #tailoring #perfectfit #bridalwear #thecoutureseamstress #bridesmaid #coutureseamstress #bridalgown #bridaldress #bridalgownalterations #bridalgownalterationsexpert #mothersweddingdressredesign #mothersweddingdressrevamp #mothersweddingdressremade #straplessweddingdress

  • More Wedding Dress Shopping Information!

    Are you looking for a beautiful wedding dress that fits your budget? We understand that many brides are on a strict budget and strive to find bargains without compromising on quality. The internet has become a treasure trove for affordable options, from second-hand services to online marketplaces like eBay, Craigslist, and Poshmark. These platforms offer great deals on wedding dresses, whether you opt for a gently used gown, a designer knock-off, or a budget-friendly alternative. While these options may not provide the in-store experience of trying on dresses, they present an opportunity to find the perfect gown at a fraction of the cost. Don't let the hefty price tags at bridal shops deter you from finding your dream dress. Explore these online avenues and discover hidden gems that align with your style and budget. Don’t mistake what we are saying, shopping at alternative markets for wedding gowns can be risky, especially when you have to pay upfront for a gown that is not returnable from a place you can't physically visit. This can definitely rattle the nerves. Bridal salons provide an exclusive experience where you can see and feel the gowns before making a significant investment. If you are willing to do some online investigations, you may be able to find the gown you love by searching sources on the internet for the designer and style number and comparing prices. Remember, no matter what way you decide to go (whether new or second-hand), you will still have to include costs for altering your gown. If you're planning to shop at alternative bridal markets, here are some vital rules to keep in mind: 1.      Don't trust the gown you see in a web site picture. Photos can be edited to conceal flaws, and the resolution may be lowered, making details harder to discern. Colors on your screen may also differ from reality. Moreover, be cautious of listings with stolen designer photos that misrepresent the actual product you'll receive. 2.      Knock-offs are very prevalent on the internet.  A knock-off is a copy of a designer gown that is usually made with lesser quality construction techniques and cheaper quality fabric. It is perfectly legal to copy any design out there; however, it is very much illegal to copy a designer label. The easiest way to tell a knock-off from the real deal is to look inside for the label. Price is also an essential indicator of a knock-off gown. If you encounter a designer gown being offered at a considerably reduced price, it is probably a knock-off. 3.       Custom Made Claims are NOT “custom made.”  Exercise caution if the advertisement references 'Custom Made' but the pricing seems unusually low. Authentic designer gowns are typically Special Order, not custom made. 4.      Investigate the seller. When shopping online, it's crucial to pay attention to seller ratings. Just like eBay, many online marketplaces have a seller rating system that provides valuable insights into the credibility of their sellers. Before making a purchase, take a moment to review a seller's profile and feedback from previous customers. This information can help you make informed decisions and ensure a positive shopping experience. If you decide to purchase a gown you have investigated, be sure to get the additional information below before making your final decision. - what was the original size of the dress - was it altered to fit the previous owner - were the alterations done by a professional seamstress/tailor - Ask for detailed measurements (of the bride at the time of wedding and/or the garment after alterations) - Inquire about the fabric and quality - Clarify the return policy, if any - get your alterations done locally Bear in mind, while knock-offs can present an economical alternative, it is imperative to acknowledge all the associated risks.

  • Wedding Dress Shopping Information

    Written by Delbra Percy, The Couture Seamstress "Buyer be aware" is an old adage, but very true. We, as consumers, must look after ourselves. This goes doubly true when you are a bride. Brides are usually young and rather inexperienced with formal wear, as with the other aspects of wedding planning.  Here are a few rules worth thinking about when you set out at the task of shopping for the most important garment of your life thus far. Some of these rules overlap, while others will not pertain to all brides. These guidelines will provide you with information so you are able make a better choice toward your real dream dress; one that will be right for you. 1. A dress that looks good in a magazine picture does not mean it will look good on you Falling in love with a picture in a magazine may be a big mistake. It is not the dress that will make you beautiful on your special day. It is you. Do not fall into the trap of thinking a dress can hide any flaws in your figure. It can help a great deal, but the emphasis should not be on the dress but the person in the dress. While wedding dress shopping, look for a dress that flatters your good figure points but does not try to overpower you or enhance your bad points. It is so easy to buy a dress that wears you. Which would you rather hear your friends and family say, "what a beautiful dress" or "what a gorgeous bride?” 2. Salespeople want to make sales This is going to sound harsh, but in all too many situations it is the norm. A salesperson is motivated to sell you a dress. It is their job. The best bridal salespeople do care and make you feel like they are truly doing their best to help you find the dress that is right for you, not simply a dress they can sell you. If you feel uncomfortable with your salesperson, ask for another. If you feel pressured, think about what you want, come back another time, talk to someone you trust. Remember, it is your decision, and nothing must be done immediately. Quite a few salespeople are paid by commission. That means the more dresses they sell the more they get paid. They do not get rated by customer satisfaction. In some bridal stores the salespeople are paid on a graduating scale. This means the pricier the dress you buy the more money your salesperson makes. Sadly, most salespersons know extraordinarily little to nothing about dress construction and alterations. But you should be aware they are going to do everything in their persuasive power to convince you that the dress you like can be altered to fit you perfectly and make you look more beautiful than Cinderella. This is not just a quirk of the bridal industry. Any store you enter may have sales staff that are paid by the sales they make. It is just the way retail works. It is my experience that from speaking with brides who have requested specific alterations, that they were guaranteed by the salesperson everything they wanted to have done could be altered that way or even added (sleeves are an example of this) later. Again, this is not always possible. Take pictures, consult a seamstress, do what you need to do to make yourself feel good about a purchase before actually making the purchase. That dress can be ordered a week later with no problem!  In the bridal stores where you are not allowed the luxury of returning a dress, it is especially important that you make your choice carefully. Simply listening to a salesperson’s advice may cause you problems later. I cannot tell you strongly enough how heartbreaking a time you will have if your newly acquired "dream dress" ends up being a nightmare to alter - or worse, an impossible situation. Bridal boutiques and stores usually have a no refund policy - and they mean every word of it! It is your tough luck if the dress cannot be altered, even if the sale's lady & even another seamstress said it could. Their policies are strong. You need to take it upon yourself to be responsible for your choice of dress and be very sure it is right before you pay for it. One last thing, if you don’t LOVE it without making changes, a seamstress cannot make you love it after the alterations. As a seamstress our job is to make the dress fit your body, nothing more. 3. Never buy a dress that is more than one size too big or too small Salespeople will tell you that any dress can be altered. As you stand there in a dress that cannot be zipped up because it is 6" too small, a salesperson will assure you that pieces can be taken off the bottom to be put in the seams to make the dress fit or the zipper removed, and a corset back put in. Though these ideas are usually true, that same salesperson will not tell you that it may also look either very odd or simply awful after the alteration is done - and it will cost you quite a bit to have done. I have done this alteration procedure several times, mostly on dresses that belonged to the bride's mother and passed down for the daughter to wear. In this case you do some odd things to get the dress to fit. But I do not recommend doing these type things on a new dress. It is not good for the structural integrity of the dress, and it is better to simply pick another dress. The perfect-fitting wedding dress is an exceedingly rare thing. In my 45 plus years of working on bridal garments I have seen only a handful of dresses that needed nothing adjusted, not even a hem. The trick to getting a great fitting dress starts with the best fit you can get off the rack or ordered carefully. And the rule of thumb is, "it is easier to take something in than it is to let out.” Quite often it is impossible to let something out more than 1/2 inch on each side. It depends on how much fabric is in the seam allowance and if it has been clipped to smooth out curves or not. That is when adding pieces becomes necessary. The final decisions are always up to you, but let me give you my best advice. Do not let yourself be talked into buying a dress that needs more alterations than you feel comfortable with or that your budget can handle. It is best for the structural integrity of the dress to have the least amount of altering as possible - and that's coming from someone who makes a living altering wedding dresses. 4. Do not diet once you have started your alterations (preferably do NOT diet or lose weight once your dress has been ordered!) If you diet and change your body more than one size of the dress you ordered, alterations will be costly to make the dress fit your smaller body and you may lose design elements of the dress that you will not like losing. Losing design features could also create issues with the structural integrity of the dress which would mean the fabrics don’t hang as they should. I get emails from brides all the time, asking how to plan for dieting in ordering/buying their wedding dresses. My answer is always - do not diet after you have ordered your dress and definitely not after your alterations consultation! If you have been dieting before you shop for your dress, it is best that you stop once the dress is ordered and go on a maintenance plan to keep your body shape the same as it was measured for the size of the dress. This will save you costly alterations and the great stress of dieting while dealing with the multitude of things that must be dealt with in planning a wedding. This is supposed to be a happy time. If you have been dieting it is always best that brides stop once they have their initial consultation. If you continue to diet and the dress alterations must be re-done because you have lost weight, the cost is on the bride to pay twice for those alterations. The seamstress does not want the stress of doing the alterations twice should the bride's body be smaller than it was when the dress was initially fitted, and what customer wants to pay twice? Seamstresses want to do their best work for each bride they service. Having to re-alter a dress that should have been already completed may not be feasible in their work schedule. Now, all that said - it is a good thing for a female to care enough about herself to want to improve her body and become a healthier person. Dieting may be part of this, but it is not a good idea to do it while planning a wedding. If you’re doing this for the good reason of your own self-esteem, do it well before the bridal dress purchase or after the wedding. 5. Just because a bridal consultant takes your measurements does not mean the dress is being made to those exact measurements. If you are not buying a dress off the rack your sales associate will take your measurements to determine what size needs to be ordered. This does not mean the dress is going to be sewn to your exact measurements. Many a bride has been surprised and even dismayed to find that her newly arrived dress does not fit her perfectly. "But they took my measurements?" is usually a common reply. You need to understand the difference between "Special Order " and "Custom Made.” In “Custom Made,” a garment is cut and sewn to a specific set of client measurements and should fit well when finished. In contrast, a Special-Order garment is chosen carefully using size charts to determine the best size to order that will make alterations minimal, but it usually does not eliminate the need for them. Few retail bridal boutiques can offer “Custom Made” dresses. It is a very expensive undertaking that few customers can handle. Special ordering is sometimes tricky because the various companies have varying size charts and when you add the fact that no two brides have the same body, you can start to understand why alterations are a necessary part of the dress selection process. When your sales associate selects a size for your dress, she looks at many factors. One of the most important is your figure proportions. Since it is always better to take a large area in than let a small one out, your associate is going to select a size determined by your largest proportion for the size category you best fit into. This means that if you have a large bustline in proportion to your waist and hips, she will select the size to best fit your bust and you will need alterations in the waist and hip areas to make the dress fit your measurements. In contrast, a small-busted bride will have to select a size according to her hip measurement. Alterations may be needed in the bust area, or as many brides choose, padding can be cleverly added to enhance the figure to fit the dress.  If there is more than a two-size difference between bust and hips, I would suggest the bride look for two-piece bridal dress. This means a better fit, because now you can purchase 2 different sizes, one to fit the bust and one to fit the hips. Some dresses may also be specially ordered to fit your different body measurements. Always check with your salesperson to see if that may be the case for the dress you are hoping to purchase. 6. Check everything when you pick up your dress Whether buying a dress off the rack or ordering one, examine it VERY carefully before paying for it or accepting delivery and taking it out of the store. If you find a flaw after you get the dress home, the store is under no obligation to fix it. They do not have to give you any compensation either. "All sales are final" is true in the bridal industry. a) Check for fit - As we discussed earlier, when you order a dress with measurements taken by the store attendant, the fit should be close to good but not usually perfect. The measurements are used to compare them to a size chart for the dress, and the store associate picks a size that will give the closest fit. However, alterations are often necessary to fine-tune the fit. Be sure to double check that the dress fits according to the size you were measured. I have found dresses marked as a size 10 but in actuality were marked incorrectly and the dress was a size 6. Always check! b)  Check for flaws - If you wait to examine the dress when you get home and find a tear in the fabric that happened in the shipping process, it is your problem to fix. The store does not have to help you. Some will, but most will not. I do not mean to sound cynical, but I do want to forewarn you. c)  Check for alteration elements - If you are buying a dress off the rack that is a little too tight, and you have no choice to get a larger size, check the seams for let-out space. If the seams are trimmed close or clipped for better shaping around curves, then it cannot be let out. In a normal situation, the dress can only be let out about 1” total. If the dress requires more than one inch to be let out it is better to find another dress than go through the heartache of finding out that the one you bought cannot be returned and is not able to be altered. If the dress needs to be taken in check the sides seams for design elements that may be lost. Most designers will position lace and beading away from alteration points like side seams, but often these get taken in at the seams when they are sewn. Some laces can be removed before the alterations are done and replaced afterwards, but this too has its drawbacks. Beads may fall off in the process and create a costly situation to replace. Taking along a trusted friend or family member who sews is helpful, but wedding dresses have special fabrics and construction that she may not be familiar with. 7. Buy the dress YOU want This may seem silly, but many brides buy a dress that is "close" to what they want thinking they can alter it, or they purchase a dress because their mom or best friend thought it looked the best on them. It is great to alter for fit but altering for design change is another thing altogether. Do not be tempted to buy a dress that is marked way down just because a salesperson says it can be changed into the dress of your dreams. Yes, it may be possible. However, by the time you make the design changes to the sales dress, the cost of the changes would mean you could have ordered the new dress to begin with. Remember, the salesperson helping you probably knows little to nothing about alterations and less about design changing. Recently I have had a rash of brides that have wanted me to add a slit to their dress. This is one of those things that salespeople say, “oh, sure, that can be done inexpensively. Not a problem.” That is not true.  If there is no seam in the dress where you would like to have a slit placed, it is not an easy alteration. It can cause structural changes and the dress normally will not hang properly after the cut is made. 8. If you are a C cup or larger - You Will Need A Bra unless you are normally comfortable without one If you are large busted and need support, you will need to shop for a dress style that lets you wear a bra that will support you. The dress cannot give you this support even if it is boned. Dresses are designed to support themselves, not your breasts. Many small breasted brides can go braless in many dress styles, but anyone with a C cup or larger may find that this is not the case for her. Seamstresses can change the bra pads to a push up, however, this doesn’t add support, it simply lifts you breasts up – which may be all you are looking for or need. Proper support is so especially important not only to how you look but how you feel that day. If you feel lousy, you will look lousy. I advise you to purchase a bra first and then go looking for a dress style that has a neckline that will cover the bra back and front. Do not let yourself fall in love with a dress that will not provide the coverage necessary for you to wear the bra you are comfortable wearing. If you truly want to go without a bra, then looking for a dress that has straps is best. Bodice alterations are complex and require many hours of work. If you are willing to work with your seamstress to find the structure you need and allow her to spend the time necessary to add both structure and possibly straps for your support then by all means give it a try. But you may be adding quite a bit in alterations costs. If you have a bridal dress that has an open back (meaning a dress that has nothing between the side seams of the dress and the center back of the dress where a bra back would be, then there is no way to make the dress tighter in the front. If your salesperson placed a strap here to show you a better fit, it will require a strap here to get this fit. Is this what you want? The point we're trying to make is to be aware. The final decision is yours, the bride. Stand up for yourself.
