Ok so I got engaged last June and my wedding is this September. Well I found my dress quickly and it arrived around October of last year. When it came in it fit.
Well now its may and I am convinced that I have gained weight. And I am terrified it will no longer fit. My first alterations appointment is not till July.
If I have ggained weight then I have time before then to lose it. But I dont know if I should try the dress on again. It is sitting in the closet taunting me.
Should I try it on again?

I personally have a hard time mentally getting into a weight loss routine. If you think trying on the dress & it being tight & too small will get your butt in gear to actually get back to the size you were when you bought it, then go for it! If you think you’ll get depressed and have dress regret bc it doesnt fit anymore, then dont. You know yourself enough to know how you’ll react if it is indeed too small now. But shoot, you never know. it could still fit perfectly! personally, i’d put it on, whether the outcome would be putting my mind at ease, or giving me a kick in the butt to start eating better and exercising more.

I would try it on, the sooner you do the more time you have to come up with a solution if it does not fit. If it does fit, it’s one less thing to worry about and then you know you can just maintain your weight. I’d rather know than have to worry about it. Even if it doesn’t fit I’m sure they can alter it! Good luck.

Ibblet: Heck yes try that dress on again. I purchased my gown in August, tried the sample on (again) in December and then it came in February.When it first came in I went ot the store to try it on just to be sure butmMy first fitting is not until June!

Definitely try it on, you’d have an easier time shifting the weight if you started now instead of trying to crash diet in july. My .02

I thought it was at the bridal shop or something so it would be difficult to try it on but if it’s just in your closet… of course you should try it on to see if it fits.
