“I love working with a girl to make her dress fit perfectly,” Southern said. “I don’t mind if they are picky. If something is not right, I have to fix it; that is important to me.”

She also delights in helping a young woman find the perfect new dress for her big wedding day, prom, homecoming or cocktail party. She said every woman should have the chance to feel beautiful. Trying to find the perfect dress in this area can be challenging and time consuming though, Southern said.

“This boutique is really filling a need in the area,” said Joy’s husband, Mike. “Plus she’s got the creativeness and eye for fashion that makes it all work.”

Getfitted carries cocktail/party dresses, as well as bridesmaid and wedding dresses. Southern said she can even order dresses for women who don’t find exactly what they want in the store.

Getfitted is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 11:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
