So my dress arrived (YAY!!!!) and I can get it on and off, though snugly, but I am seriously concerned that it isn’t going to fit right – it’s 2 sizes smaller than the sample that I tried on at Kleinfeld, and fits everywhere but seems to be tight around my hips/butt – like the fabric pulls instead of laying right. I haven’t been able to do the corset back because I have no one to help me, but I am a bit freaked out about the prospect of the dress not fitting me properly…
Is this something that can be fixed in alterations? Do I need to lose weight?
Here are some photos of the dress and the photo of me trying it on in the store…

If its just the littlest bit snug, i would just avoid bloating the days before the big day (reduce salt, alcohol, drink water constantly to lose water retention etc) 🙂 It looks beautiful, congratulations!

The photo of me above was taken a few months ago when I tried the sample on in Kleinfeld. I have no photo of me in the dress since it arrived and the dress hasn’t been altered yet, so…what I am really wondering is whether alterations can fix the pulling of fabric around my hips or do I need to lose weight? I really don’t want this to be an issue of bloating in the end. I want to be confident that my dress will fit and look fantastic!

Take it to a seamstress and see how much it can be let out, if needed. Many dresses have a little extra in the seams just in case!

You are so tiny! Don’t stress yourself out about losing weight. Just have someone let it out in those specific areas.
