Wedding dresses and deb dresses can also be fitted with straps to compliment your gown. Depending on the style of bridal gown you choose allow 2 or 3 fittings. Leah S Designs recommends fittings start 6 -4 weeks before your event.

What to bring to your gown fittings

You will need to bring your shoes to make sure your gown hemline is exactly the right length. Your shoes will also dictate the bustle placement an a wedding gown.

Undergarments are also important as all bras will make your bust sit differently. So it is important to wear the one you will be wearing on the day.

Alteration Tip : If you are wearing a strapless bra check in the mirror that you have the right size. It shouldn’t cut into you any where. An ill fitting bra can be the main cause of back fat.

If you are wearing magic pants on the day bring them too.

Alteration Tip: If magic pants are easy to get on they are not the right size.
