@Spideykiss:  Maybe The Running Changed Your Upper Body? Better Posture? I Feel You Though My Dress Waited Two Years So Least To Say It Did Not Fit Nice, Second Fitting It Fit So Much Better, i Just Had My Last FittingThis Week And It’s Tight Again And i Lost About Six Pounds Between Second And Last! Mine Can’t Be Let Out Either Luckily It’s a Corset , i Have a Little Room. Don’t Worry bee I’m Sure Is Fine Maybe Bloating ManyThings Plus i Think The More Stress The More You Lose Hence My Six Pounds. i Wouldn’t Worry Unless You Were Really Uncomfortable

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.

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!
