My dress came in around a month or so ago, and I went down to the store to try it on. It fit PERFECTLY – just a tiny bit too long, so I booked an appointment with the seamstress.
When I got to the first fitting appointment, the dress was tighter. It fits, but just. The thing is: I haven’t gained any weight. None. I weighed myself the day I bought the dress, the day it came in and right before my fitting!
It is tightest around my chest/ribcage. The only thing I can think of that’s changed is that I’ve been running more lately. My boobs have got bigger too but it’s not really tight in that area. And like I said, I’ve not gained any weight!
I am so worried that the dress will not fit. Apparently it cannot be let out 🙁 🙁 Any advice?

What are you doing for exercise?
Working in a dress shop, we’ve seen women who work out to lose weight for their wedding and get in shape, but end up strengthening muscles and in essence ‘bulk up’
Sometimes looking at the bride you can’t even see the difference in muscle tone, but it can be just enough to change the fit of a wedding gown 🙂

@Spideykiss: when I run I know that I dont gain weight but I do get bigger and my clothing fits differently, mostly in the upper chest area. I recently switched to pilates reformer to help be more lean but also get better posture for the photos. Havent lost weight but have lost inches.

@Cecilia_Noelle: Cardio, but since the weather has been better, I’ve been running outside more rather than at the gym (I use a range of machines there – mainly cycling and the elliptical).
I’ve been told basically to lose weight but I’m barely eating enough as it is and feel really run down.

also pay attention to where you are on your cycle. sometimes you retain water in places, are more blotted…. could have played a factor as well.

@Spideykiss: Are you on an extreme diet? Cutting calories too low will put your body in starvation mode, making your body consume muscle and add fat. Since a pound of muscle is smaller than a pound of fat you can hypothetically remain the same weight on the scale while being a bigger size. Don’t cut calories too low, always above 1200 and probably more if you’re working out a lot. Hope that helps!
