The best time to wear a dress is after the wedding, says a clothing manufacturer who has designed dress styles for weddings, graduations, and parties.
“If you have a wedding in the future, you can wear this dress at home and be comfortable, but then you have to get dressed for the party, or the party for the wedding,” says Jill Smith, founder of The Dressmaker, an online shop.
“I would rather be in my wedding dress, than at home with a baby or something.”
“If I’m going to the party and my dress isn’t going to fit, I’m just going to be a little embarrassed,” Smith says.
She says that when it comes to planning your wedding, the dressmaker advises wearing a small amount of fabric and that you will need to wear shoes and socks for the event.
“We recommend getting a couple pairs of matching shoes,” Smith explains.
The dressmaker has been designing wedding dresses since 1999 and is one of the top sellers in the world, with more than 8 million customers worldwide.
“When we were in college, I was just like, I don’t know, I’ve got to get this dress,” says Smith.
The new designer says that she does not have any regrets about what she’s created.
“The only regret I have is that I haven’t worn it much longer,” she says.
“It’s not like I’m wearing it in my dress again, but I still feel like it’s a great idea.
It’s a dress for the moment, not for a wedding.”
