I recently bought this dress for my bridal shower next month. I tried it on at the store in a size 12 and was swimming in it, so the sales associate ordered it for me in a 10.
It came on Wednesday and it fits really oddly! There are pockets which bulge which is really unflattering and the bust fits in way that makes me think it still needs to be taken in a tiny bit. When I tried on the 12 I didn't even notice pockets! All in all, its really unflattering and needs alterations (the pockets removed and around the bust). My question is: Do I alter this dress or do I exchange it for the 12 and just have the bust area of the 12 altered? Or, should I completely scrap this dress and buy another? This was on amazing sale, but that isn't really the issue, as it was still over $100 and I want it to be flattering. I also really wanted a pink and green dress because hat's the theme of the shower. I found a great navy (also available in pink) dress at Lilly, which is now my backup. It was $150 and if its marked down again, its mine!
Advice please! :)
