Today I had my first fitting for alterations and my dress is tight on my ribs. 😐
Is this normal? I didn’t gain any weight and it’s tight in an area that seems impossible to have gained weight in, even if I had (right under my “girls”). I can’t figure out why oh WHY my dress is tight. The sample fit PERFECTLY!
I’m going to start back on P90X since I’m worried about the dress not fitting, or is there an option to have the dress “loosened”? Or “stretched”? In that particular part of the gown?
Thanks in advance guys. I’m really freaking out about it, as the wedding is soon.

Samples are tried on by hundreds of women, many of which are larger than the sample size. The sample dress probably stretched out and I am guessing yours will too! Both of my gowns did.
Are you still able to breath and move around comfortably?

@MissTatas: I can move around but breathing is a tiny bit uncomfortable. Which is why I’m kinda freaked out. :/

You can gain weight in that area, I do quite often, it’s my 2nd red flag (after my thighs start touching each other) that I’m putting in some weight, I get a small roll right under my boobs (It’s like the fat purposely avoids the waist line).
If you can move and it’s just a matter of breathing I am sure a good seamstress can loose some of the dress (since it sounds it just needs to be a little bit), but it depends on how good the seamstress and the dress, does it have beading? lace? I was once told wedding dresses are made to be easily altered up to two sizes up and down, so I am hoping you case is something easy.

@heathuhhhhwebbbb: What is the dress fabric? Depending on the material, you might be able to “stretch out” the dress a bit. BUT I would recommend having your seamstress let it out a tad instead.
Also, stay away from weight training and focus on cardio/clean eating to stay lean. Although muscle takes up less room than fat, when you first start gaining muscle, you tend to get “bigger” first and then it all starts toning up later.

Whoops…a bit of overzealous posting at play.
