Hello bees! How tight does your dress fit??? I am absolutely in love with my dress, it is a zip up the back style that has the covered buttons running down the back, but it has an internal corset that shrinks my waist by about 2-3 inches. It is the most amazing dress… once its on! The trouble is getting it on!! It literally takes 2 people to pull it together and get it zipped..
Does that seem normal? I’m worried it might burst during the reception or something! lol… once its on its quite comfortable despite the tightness and I can breathe just fine..
Anyone else’s dress fit like this?

Ouch, I’m not a professional when it comes to dresses, but that just seems so painful. Are you okay with it being that tight?

Mine’s kind of the same deal — zips up the back and a corset inside. And, it does take one or two other people to get me into it. I don’t think it’s uber-comfy when it’s on, but it was a custom-made dress, and the dressmaker was there for all my fittings, and showed another person how to pull it together and get it zipped.
I guess that’s just how some of them are supposed to fit!

@lil- it sounds like it will work just fine for you… As long as you know yourself and won’t feel claustrophobic, I think you’ll be fine. My sister’s fit like that and she did fine all night. I kept checking on her, but she had no problems.
For me, there were a couple of dresses I put on that were so uncomfortable that I wanted to pull a Carrie Bradshaw and rip it off and run out of the store. But, I know this about myself, and as a consequence I picked an exceedingly free flowing dress. It’s way too big for me right now, but when I get it tailored, you can bet I’ll include a little wiggle room (but not too much!).

My gown fits fairly snugly, but like you I can still breathe and feel comfortable in it. I don’t like strapless gown that don’t fit properly in the bust, as I think they make it look like you’re wearing an armored breastplate that isn’t attached to your body properly.
I say if you’re comfortable and you’re not straining/damaging the dress by wearing it so tightly, go for it!
Do you have a picture you could share?
