My dress had to be let out in the boob area (in the back). It wouldn’t zip past my bra strap. I have a 14 month old that is still nursing. The girls haven’t settled down yet, even though I’ve lost about 15 lbs. My dress fits great, but if I gain any weight, I’m screwed. We have 11 days to go, and I’m hoping to lose at least another 5 lbs so that my zipper doesn’t burst at the reception. Surprised

Your dress looks great! I am only trying to lose weight so I can eat more during the wedding. I am actually simply trying to get back down to my regular weight before moving in with FH.

My dress is too lose in the boob area (can you tell?) last time I tried it out which was when I had my hair trial a few wks ago. My mom said she knows someone who can fix it so hope all goes well… 18 days out!

Your dress looks fabulous! I’m going this Saturday for my final fitting and alterations and I will probably need my dress to be brought down by two sizes and I’m nervous!!!!

I haven’t even had my first fitting yet! The alterations place I’m going to said they only need a week between first & second fittings.. then if anything needs to be fixed after the second it can be done in a few days. Tomorrow is my first fitting, fingers crossed all goes well & the dress will be done & ready to come home next week!

You ladies look great!

Here is mine.  There are still some alterations that need to be done at the top so it still looks a little funny because it has some pins in.  The top will never fully fit me correctly since the dress was ordered way tooo big, but the second picture shows how it looked at my first fitting!  I had cups sewn into the dress and still am wearing a bra! Two inches had to be taken off on both sides so they did a lot of work on this dress!

I’m having my final fiting on Monday.  They had to let out the chest, hemmed the bottom since I’m so short (5’2″), and obviously added a bustle.  I hope it looks amazing when I see it Monday!!

I had my first fitting two weeks ago and another yesterday.  The one two weeks ago was awful!  My shaper did nothing for me; I was having nightmares that I was going to look like a sausage stuffed into my dress.  Thankfully, yesterday, the seamstress put me in a bustier that worked wonders!  She needs to make some alterations so that you can’t see the bustier (keyhole back) and shorten my straps just a little.  My final fitting is April 11.  Cutting it a bit close, but I think my dress will be perfect by then!

I had asked the seamstress to remove some flowers from my dress (Allure 8764).  Then yesterday, the shop owner told me that she’s going to attach the flowers to a comb so that I can wear them in my hair.  I didn’t even ask her to do it – she knows that I always wear a flower in my hair and thought if it herself!

Here is my first fitting…. I had to get the dress hemmed as well as put some cup in at the top! We will see how it looks in a couple of weeks.

@vasfinest:  May bride and yes I do want to lose a few pounds. My dress will fit fine even if I don’t. I would like to lose it for the honeymoon where I will be in a bathing suit most of the time.
