David's Bridal — Poor Service/Alterations
I purchased my wedding dress at David's Bridal in Ft. Myers. I decided to get the alterations done at David's Bridal. I wound up spending almost as much in alterations as the dress itself cost. Ok, that's fine, as long as it's done right. I went in in April for my alterations. They pinned me and I was told that they would be taking in the sides, the zipper and hemming it, in addition to the bussles. I went back in 3 months later for my "final" fitting. The dress zipped up past my hips and waist, but didn't even come close to zipping up around my ribcage. The first words out of the alterations lady's mouth were "What did you do?!?". Ok, I'm in the fitness industry. I work out, take good care of myself, and eat right. I've been the same size, and basically the same weight, for the past 8 years. I told the lady this, and she said that sometimes people "redistribute their weight". FROM WHERE?!?! I'm the same size everywhere else...all my clothes fit the same...I was wearing the same bra I had 3 months prior. And, what major change had my body gone through in the past 3 months that would cause me to "redistribute" my weight? So they remeasured me. Everything else was the same...except the bust. The had written me down as a 32 in the chest the first time I went in...I haven't been a 32 since 8 grade. When she remeasured me, she found I was a 37.5, which I am. She said, "here's the problem...you gained 5.5 inches in the bust". REALLY?!? 5 inches in 3 months, without surgery!!! She then told me that it wasn't their fault, I obviously gained, since they didn't take in that area. I mentioned that she told me 3 months ago that they'd have to take in the zipper. She said "oh, no, we didn't touch the zipper". I went home, checked the alterations receipt, and sure enough, there was a charge for "Taking in zipper". I called the manager, and was assured that this would be taken care of, at no charge. Later, I got a call from the alterations lady, who proceeded to yell at me, saying that she never told me that they didn't touch the zipper...that I was wrong. She wouldn't let me get a word in. So, two weeks later, I had to go back in for a refitting. Same situation...nothing was done to fix it. While, this time, she did admit to taking in the zipper, she still was insistant that I gained. She told me that even if they let the dress out to where it was prior to alterations (which had me swimming in it), it wouldn't be enough. I'm going back in a month for my next "final" fitting, and I'm worried that the dress will still be messed up, I'll be out $1000, and have a month to find a new dress.
