Have you ever bought a dress that you liked so much but wished it could have been adjusted to fit your body perfectly? I’ve experienced this many times. So when my husband told me about A.T.E Clothing Shop, it got me curious. I told him about the possible prices though, I’m one “kuripot” mama so as expected, I said no. But one Sunday afternoon, he was driving and I just realized we were already at their branch in Mabolo. Smart move of him!!!! Anyway, this isn’t a sponsored post but I decided to share my experience here because I love their service and few friends are asking me about this shop.
A.T.E means Alter To Enhance and from the name itself, clothes are altered to properly fit your body and they do customization as well. When I went inside, I realized it’s not an ordinary tailoring shop. They have good collections of ready-made dresses which makes them look like a boutique shop as well. The display is arranged by color and design so it’s very easy to find the what you like. And once you fit the item, a friendly staff will assist you and check the clothes for possible adjustment, all for FREE… Yes, clothes can be altered for free but if the design needs to be changed or you want to add something, then there’s an additional fee, just a small amount, I think Php100 if I remember it correctly. How good is that right?
They have amazing fitting rooms, and as I mentioned earlier, staff are so friendly. After paying, I only waited for around 5 minutes for them to finish the alteration. As for the price, their collections are between Php 400 (they do have kids collection, perfect for mother and daughter twinning) to a little bit over Php1000. My chosen dress, that was Php 1100, with free alteration. So far, I have worn the dress in two occasions and I loved it so much because it fits me well, very comfortable and the design I chose was a versatile one, I can wear them in different ways.

There are many ways to wear this dress that I bought at @ate_clothing and this is my style for today’s #wedding event. I was one satisfied client during my visit to one of their shops here in Cebu. They alter dresses to best fit our body for free (for the 1st alteration only) and waiting time is very short (I waited only around 10 minutes). Anyway, my husband was the one who convinced me to visit this shop, I’m glad I gave in to him that day😍. #cebumommyblogger #ootdmom #notsponsored #supportlocal 👠 my 3rd pair from @layshu_ph 😘
I’m planning to go back there and choose a design for me and my girls, it’s been a while since we last bought a mom and daughters dress anyway. Want to try ATE? See below for their locations and contact details.
