So, I got the call yesterday that my dress came in! YAY. However, I’m super nervous it won’t fit. I haven’t been able to try it on as I’m plus size. Has any plus size brides had this issue? What do I do if it doesn’t fit and is too small? I’m hoping it’s too big, but who knows.
I did find out on the 9th that I have two real diagnoses and am not going crazy! I was diagnosed with severe insulin resistance and Hashimoto’s Disease. Basically impossible to lose weight. I’m hoping that with me working out as much as I have been I’ve toned up and it will fit. The doctor is highly hopeful that I will be down 50lbs by my wedding. PRAYERS PLEASE!!!!
FINGERS CROSSED THAT IT FITS!!! I’ll probably have a nervous breakdown if it doesn’t zip!

@knmw1106: *HUGS* They measure and order the dress to your largest measurement, and take in the rest in alterations. Not to worry!!
I’m sorry about your health issues. I have Hashimoto’s also and have struggled immensely to lose some weight. Fingers crossed for you!! *more hugs too*

If they measured you correctly, they ordered the dress based on your largest measurement [for me, it was my hips, I’m normally a US 20, they ordered the dress in a 24], I haven’t tried it on but I’m sure it’ll be fine [the sample was a 16, and it’s a ballgown, the bottom portion of me had no issues getting into it!].

I went on Saturday for my first fitting and real trying on the dress…IT FIT! It was actually HUGE in the bust, so I have to get some alterations…but I’m so relieved! YAY! I didn’t want to take it off since I was never able to try it on before, but I love it!!!
Also, I’m on medication that is it to help with my insulin and my doc said I should expect around a 40-50lb weight loss…HOPING FOR THAT…when should I start doing alterations? I’m trying to find a seamstress, but nothing yet.
