One rule I’ve always had is “DEMO. DEMO. DEMO!!!!” But on occasion, I forget. It never really ends well. Case in point… this absolutely beautiful dress from B.C.C.!
The Emily Romantic Corset Dress by B.C.C. for The Seasons Story is lovely and so completely my style. I was so excited to wear it while we’ve been on vacation that in my haste, I didn’t demo. Unfortunately, the dress is “standard sized” pretty much in name only. The Small does fit me, but then I noticed something really really wrong with the arms.
At first I thought it was my Slink hands because sometimes longer sleeves don’t fit quite right over them. But as you can see, my hands stop well before the sleeve starts. I tried moving up to a size Medium, but for some reason, that made the dress completely jam into my shoulders, although the opposite should have been true. I even went up to a size Large, which was not really that much larger than the Small and came with its own set of issues. Then I tried changing my shape, but that didn’t really work that well. I sent a notecard to the creator a couple of days ago to ask if maybe I could get a new alpha that goes down a little further on the sleeves, but I don’t know how much that’s going to fix the problem and I haven’t heard anything back anyway.
That all being said, this dress is really really pretty. If you want to buy it, definitely demo it first!
