Can you take it to a seamstress to have it let out a bit?

you have plenty of time.  it sounds like your dress will be fine if you drop 5 pounds.  5 pounds in 4.5 months is more than doable.

Mine did not loosen up. It stayed as tight/snug as it was. When my seamstress finished my dress, it was so tight I found it hard to breath after a few minutes. She ended up taking out a half inch from both sides and then it was pefect. This was two days before my wedding, though.

CanadianBride456:  4+ months is plenty of time to lose a few pounds. I lost 30 pounds in that time frame alone… Just takes dedication. Also, my dress did not loosen up throughout the evening. Then again, it was also corset and tied pretty tightly. Many bees do say theirs loosen up.

Why can’t you get it altered? Bridal gowns have a ton of room in the seams. 4 months is a lot of time to get it altered.

If you want to try to lose weight, you have plenty of time to do that. I would also set up an alteration appointment a month or so before the wedding in case you do not lose enough weight and end up needing it taken out. Just in case.

CanadianBride456:  I was going to say, 4 months is plenty of time to lose the weight. But, having gone back and looked at your photos, you look like you are already thin and don’t really need to lose any weight. So, if you don’t want to lose weight, your best option would be to just have it let out a bit.

No it probably won’t loosen up unless you wore it around every day and gave it the same wear a sample dress in a store might get. Are you wearing any type of undergarment or bustier under it? If so, try taking that out and see if it’s more comfortable. When a dress is tight, a lot of times you really don’t need all the extra shaper stuff you might think.

Oh ya. Wedding dresses have enough room int he seams to go up at LEAST one full size. Most dresses have 6-8 seams that all have like an inch in each seem. Bring it to a good seamstress and you’ll be fine. Def want to be able to eat and breath and sit on your wedding day!!

You could also try spanx or something similar, depending on where it’s tight…

CanadianBride456:  I strongly suggest you wear a dress that fits comfortably. My dress was a tiny bit loose on my wedding day and even so by the end of the day I wanted to get out of it because it was stiff and heavy, so if you can’t breath properly I would imagine it to be a nightmare. So if you want to lose a bit of weitgh try that and if not just take it out, but make it fit you comfortably 😉
