Forum home Weight loss for your wedding

dress agony

I am taking my dress along to bridal store (not where I bought it) and I am trying on my dress in front of the woman as I am paranoid that it is the wrong fit. I need to know now if it is wrong and need to order a different size as then I know how I can rectify it.

I am losing weight and already the dress was too big when it came in so I think that the size is all wrong. I wish I had quit my losses and just walked away having only paid the deposit because I know if I was chosing the size now I would have been advised to go for the smaller size.

I would have ordered the smaller size had i known that due to personal circumstances we postponed the wedding.

I am worried and losing sleep over it as the dress was incredibally expensive. What;s more my Dad warned me and will say "i told you so!"

    Why don't you just get it taken in?

    I'm sure you can take a dress in up to three sizes smaller x

    Seamstresses can work wonders on ill-fitting dresses so do try not to worry yourself. Unless you have had a dress specifically designed for you, no wedding dress is made to offer you a perfect fit and it is expected that brides will have it altered for the best fit.

    Once it's been taken in I bet you'll feel a million dollars.
