The other day, when going through egl_comm_sales , I saw octavekitten 's sales thread. She purchased an AatP Circus JSK, which promised a max. bust of 36 inches. When she measured, it was only 31 inches! She had to have it professionally altered in order to fit.
This made me question whether or not my own JSK was incorrectly sized (or sewn). Yep. My JSK has a maximum bust of 31 inches, too. SIX INCHES LESS THAN ADVERTISED! When you pay $350+ for a dress, I guess I just assumed it would be made to the manufacturer's posted specifications. Needless to say, this has made me incredibly weary of purchasing any new items from BtSSB/AatP.
Has anyone else had serious sizing issues with either BtSSB or AatP before? Or was my experience anomalous?
