Most wedding dresses are ordered off the peg but will require a number of fittings in the run up to the big day to ensure that perfect fit. It is not just the waist and length that will need to be considered, any part of the dress that is fitted should follow your bodies contours creating a smooth and streamlined silhouette. A professional seamstress will be able to alter a number of aspects of an off the peg dress to make it fit as if it was made to measure.
