The most important thing for you to do is measure yourself with a cloth tape
measure. Wedding gowns are not the same measurements from label to label. Used gowns may have been altered leaving no extra
fabric to let out. If you want a gown that is a good size for you you must measure yourself and compare it with the measurements
of the gowns shown on this site. You might still have to have a gown altered. A gown too small with no seams to let out
will have to have additional fabric added. This can be done but you should avoid doing so because the fabric color will never
match unless it is taken from the dress. I will remeasure the gown for you and will let you know how
much the seams can be let out. E-mail me (BridalGownsUsed@yahoo.com) because it takes a while to measure.
My thinking is, listing the gowns with measurements will give
you a better idea of what might fit your measurements or where it has to be altered. Wedding gowns are made to be altered
easily and there is almost nothing that can't be made to fit...within reason. A too short gown can't be made longer except
through adding a ruffle. A tulle overlay skirt might be made longer this way. You could also add a length of wide lace
or beaded fabric made for hemming bridal gowns. It is very expensive. Alterations are also expensive especially when they
are complex but some are easier than others.
If you have a question, please ask. I want you to be a happy
customer and a beautiful bride.
