Whats with some people??!!

Postby Siana-leah » Fri Feb 29, 2008 9:56 pm

I went to a bridal shop with friends to look for some bridesmaid dresses and we found the perfect ones....only the highest size was
a 14.....i am a 16-18 depending on the store....
i thought i might try it on anyway and the cow....(bleach blonde mid 40's SKINNY! sales assistant)
just walks in while im changing and declares that the dress is WAAAY to small and that I will definitely need a size 18 at least!
then she walks out and tells my friends (and every1 else there) the exact same thing.....
(picture me clutching an unzipped dress with a bust that was surely made for dolly parton....bottom jaw dropped to the ground....
i was a bit embarrassed so we just left......
and all this after i had accidently backed my NEW car into a dumpster!!!!!
doing good siana......doing good!!!! :x

That sales assistant - what a COW!

I remember for my sisters wedding I was a bridesmaid and at the time 72kgs or so and a large 14 or small 16 and we had to wear those horrible corset things and the sales assistant made the biggest deal about me having to have extra clips on the back because even the large ones wouldn't do up all the way. The my dressmaker told me to stop putting on weight or the dress wouldn't fit me AND I had made an effort and lost a few kgs!!!

People can be mean thats for sure. And they should def stock more sizes.

Sorry about your car, that sucks, what a crap day you've had! I hope tomorrow is a better day for you hun (((HUGS)))
Saying goodbye to calorie counting AND scales for a while.

Just enjoying the new and improved healthy me and embracing my new lifestyle!

People definitely need more tact - I don't know why people are like that!

She doesn't deserve your business anyway, definitely hope that your weekend gets better. I read in your other post that you went home and did a big work-out so that's excellent. Much better than going home and eating.
Cheers,
Kate

Shame that she wasn't there - you could have proven to the stupid [email protected] that you could fit into that size, despite it being a bit tight!!! Nothing like proving people wrong.

Fantastic work about fitting into the size 14 - I used to be there about 18 months ago, and my aim is to get back there soon.
Cheers,

You poor thing!

I would've bluntly told her where she can shove the dress!!!

Congratulations on fitting into a size 14. Yay for you!

Hi Siana-leah. I too have encountered the same probs of bridal stores not catering for the more generous woman, but the sales assistants have been very lovely, and discreet, and tactful with me. I feel bad for u though, I mean what a cow treating anyone that way!!!! A wedding is the pinacle moment for any woman in her life, and we're sensitive enough from all the pressure to lose weight and look perfect, thats just terrible babe!!

THATS DEFIANTLEY SLAP WORTHY. I have had that happen before and hated it, made me feel sh!t for the rest of the week. Alot of shop assistants need to learn tact. When i went to a wedding expo a few weeks ago i even got upset when i was handed a curvy and curvacious (or what ever it is) brochure for a wedding boutique.

Sorry you had such a bad day but glad to hear you went back there anyway and tried the dress again. Thats great.
