I’m really sorry to read all of this! I wish you all the patience and good feelings in the world!

I don’t really understand why a corset back would not work? I tried on a size 8 dress yesterday (I’m a 14) and the lady showed me how she could make it work (which was also confirmed by my seamstress grandmother in law). Maybe ask another seamstress about it?

Is there no additional fabric under the seams? I’m sure she will be able to make it happen! 

Another suggestion is to go and buy a corsage, this could help making your back a little tighter as well as your breasts. You just have to figure out if you would be comfortable wearing one. 

 

I hope everything will turn out just fine!

Which dress is it? I’m not really understanding why a corset back won’t help. Put in the corset back and then take in the places it needs to be taken in.

Yay! I hope it will fit now! 

Also: the closer my wedding gets, the more I think I deserve something, too – like not feeling miserable over things. So you go girl, you deserve it!

What dress is it? Picture? I need to see this dress to understand why your seamstress is so adamant that it can’t be made into a corset back.

Maybe no extreme measures are necessary. What would make you feel better in the dress? If it were wider, or tighter or I don’t know?

If it’s a custom made dress, it must be possible to custom change it 🙂 Don’t panic! (that’s what I’ve been telling myself these days…)

@Rachel631:  Ah, gotcha.

Okay, so what don’t you like about the dress?

I was going to ask if you’d been doing weight training because that would explain the mysterious increase in size across an area that doesn’t normally gain weight! But I see that you have.

I’m just wondering whether part of the problem is that you bought your dress at such a stressful time and it just reminds you of all this.

However, once the parts that are too big actually fit you and you’ve made the alterations to the back it might genuinely look like a completely different dress and more importantly, one that’s made for you. 

If you honestly think you can’t wear it then eBay could be your friend though!

@Rachel631:  I also had a love hate realatiobship with my dress too. At first I was stunned because all my friends told me it was gorgeous and I looked tall and beauitful in it. The problem was my heart was set on a different dress that I had no chance of trying on and couldn’t commit to buy without trying on (I am just overly careful i never buy clothes without trying them on)

I agree with some of the comments that you might have negative thoughts with the dress bceause of the awful things that you went through when purchasing! My advice is to keep an open mind, get some gorgeous accessories (which it sounds like you started to do) and you sound well organised with your back uos.

I look at my wedding photos and although I don’t look the way i thought I would I am still very happy with my dress and my overall look and I hope you can feel the same way too
