Wedding Gown: How Much Can They Actually Take In a Dress?

Q:

How much can they actually take in a dress?

A:

It's pretty common for a bride to fall in love with a sample-size gown, buy it for a great deal and then have it taken in as many as eight sizes! But being able to do that really depends on the dress -- seams, pleating, beading and any other embellishments. One with lots of detail might be hard to rework to fit a smaller frame.
