this will be the first time that i’ve been in a wedding of TWO of my bff’s at the same time. and the wedding party is packed full of close friends. i’m super excited. yesterday i had to call in my measurements for my bridesmaid dress. i had a co-worker take my measurements and then i placed the call. after giving the lady my numbers she pulled up the designers size chart. this is what followed:
store lady: “well according to your bust and hip size you will need a size 10. but according to your waist size you are a size 18.”
store lady: “so which size do you want to get?”
me: “um well, i usually fluctuate between a size 8 and 10.”
store lady: “well according to this chart you might want to get a size 18.”
me: “well i know i’m not a size 18.” (said in a matter of fact tone, not in a snobbish i’m smaller than that tone)
store lady: “well once we order the dress, it’s yours.”
me: “yes i know. but let’s just go with the size 10”.
store lady: “ok if thats what you want.”
it was quite a funny conversation. i felt better when stacie called later and had a similar experience. after grilling the lady about what sizes everyone else ordered. can they tell her my sizes? maybe i should sue. maybe i can get my dress for free. just kidding. or am i?
