@Mogs:  Sure, you can lose a bit of weight so it will fit.  No sugar, no starch.

@Mogs:  Well, you could certainly wait until it is taken out, and try it on then.  I’m sure that if you did have to lose weight, it would be minimal.

@Mogs:  The seamstress should be able to fix that no probs. If the zipper went up halfway that probably means it’s only an inch or two too small for you in certain areas. There should be that amount of fabric available in the seams for it to be let out.

My sister-in-law gave me the best advice that I got all throughout wedding planning: wedding dresses are like dryer jeans. When you take your jeans out of the dryer, they’re really tight, but they stretch out after you wear them for awhile. Wedding dresses show up from the manufacturer all stiff and tight, but they loosen up some with wear. See if you can wear yours around a bit to stretch it out.

It sounds like it almost fit. A seamstress should be able to work with that on any wedding dress. I know personally I retain water more during certain times of the month and feel more bloated. Did you wear different undergarments underneath when you tried it on again? A good corset goes a long way!
