    So I made a previous post about my uniform being tight i sent her a text about a week ago and she has not replied back which is weird because she usually replies soon so I’m kinda taking it as a “deal with it” type of situation so does anybody have any tips on stretching out your top or should I try again ?

    Applying heat will help almost any fabric stretch out a little. So like using an iron - CAREFULLY - on a low heat while pulling the areas that needs stretching can help. Be SUPER careful with this though!! If the heat is too high it can burn and discolor the fabric, remove rhinestones and will take away from the longevity of wear you can get out of the uniform. This is sort of a last resort option, Ideally getting it altered is best. But sometimes they stretch out a bit just with wear, so maybe wear it a few times first and see if it feels better after moving and wearing.
