Forum home Weight loss for your wedding

Lost 1 stone now my dress doesn't fit!

I bought my dress last year and it is a Ronald Joyce size 16. When I first tried it on it fit like a glove it took two people to get me in it as it probably was a bit small for me but I just needed t loose a bit of weight. 

Anyway now it just does up with noe problem but I am nervous about getting it taken in as I dont know how much this will cost and it needs like a foot to be taken up on the material (Chiffon) and possibly the diamante on the dress to be placed in a different area as I am only 5ft 1 so my hips are not in the same place as where the diamante is. 

Anyone else had their dress altered dramatically? How much was it? and how did it look and feel?

    Dresses can be taken in three dress sizes so you will be fine image It cost £50 for my hem to be taken up but it completely depends on your style of dress.
