Dress Fitting Dissapointment.
I feel like all I ever do is come on here to moan, I'm sorry! I think the fact my wedding is next month and I don't really want to lay my stresses on others probably doesn't help.
I've just been for my first dress fitting and all I've wanted to do since is cry.
I was so confident I'd lost weight. My waist is smaller (which, for a mermaid dress I was pretty psyched about) I was pretty sure my arse was still in check and I my boobs haven't changed size since I was about 16. I even did a size check the other day and the skirt I had since I was 18 fit like a glove
They took my measurements a few times before I got round to trying on my dress, and then pinned me up as they're taking a fair bit from the bottom. But by that point I'd already started to feel like crap. Looking in the mirror I felt hideous. Then they told me they'd have to take the dress out around my hips, which when they ordered the dress, they did say my hips measured larger than my top half, but ordered the smaller size and even given that I was told not to lose too much weight.
But, apparently now I measure larger on my bust and my waist but my hips are the same. They told me that I HAD to maintain my weight because the next fitting will be my last (I should have up to three included in my alterations costs. £200 may I add) but I feel disgusted with myself that I've put weight on for my wedding and that I'm going to look like shit without being able to do anything about it. Because clearly the year long diet hasn't worked... even though I thought it had. I eat around 1200 calories a day and walk to work every day and I've been doing a few toning exercises too
I spent the last couple of weeks thinking I was finally seeing results, only now I'm back a step one and don't know what to do. I look at myself and don't see what I saw in that mirror today. I feel awful because I love my dress, my parents have contributed towards it and my sister ran me on a 100 mile round trip to go to the fitting and I couldn't even speak on the way home I was so disappointed with the experience.
Has anyone has anything similar? Does it tend to work out alright in the end.
I mean they also made me take my bra off when I've actually bought a bra for my dress but measured my bust with a bra?! Arghh bride-lema! 😭
