I purchased my dress about four months ago, and almost immediately had dress regret. I bought it because it was the right price, had all the “elements” I wanted and my mom and sister both loved it. I loved it too, but it was the only dress I ever tried on not in my size, and the second I purchased it, I was wracked with regret. (These boards don’t help! So many pretty dresses!) And because it wasn’t in my size, I was living in fear that the back would hit right under my back fat, and it would be a disaster.
Here’s the dress when I bought it:
I just got a call that my dress came in, about two months early. I was so nervous, all morning until the appointment. I spent my early morning looking up boleros and cheap pre-owned dresses, just in case it really was awful.
And the moment of truth – I got it on, my sister proclaimed my back as perfect and totally covered, and I looked in the mirror.
Just like that: Dress regret gone. I love it more than ever, and I can’t wait to wear it. It’s going to even more awesome when the alterations are done.
And now here it is, in the right size, pre-alteration:

Thank you! I forgot I had a better picture of the back. I really love it (that bow!), so I’m glad I don’t have to cover it due to body-image issues.
Unbuttoned due to laziness. In theory, the bra straps won’t be showing either 🙂
(Thanks for all the love, ladies. I needed a pick-me-up today!)
