I’m sure it’s not as bad as you think.  Would you post a picture so we could give you some honest feedback?

@coolbride125:  Aww, sweetie, don’t do that! Can you bring someone else with you for a second opinion on the dress?

Go back today and see if there is something you can do. There’s no way production started on your dress yet, so depending on the designer, they might be able to switch you.

I am confused though about why you want the dress to be big. Dress sizes are not street sizes, so don’t let the number 12 freak you out. That’s probably closer to an 8 maybe even smaller in normal clothing. 

What shape is the dress? I’m not really getting how it doesn’t flatter your thighs but would also need crinoline that you don’t want to put in.

You liked the dress yesterday for a reason.

And don’t cancel the photographers. If you hate the dress that much and can’t cancel it, then sell it and order a dress you do like.

Take a deep breath. Size 12 does NOT mean you are huge. I am a size 4 street size, and my dress was ordered in a size 10. Bridal sizes are stupid – I don’t understand why they try to make everyone feel fat!

I’m sure it looks stunning! Just take a step back, take a look at the dress, maybe try it on again with some accessories and your hair and make up done up a little more than usual. If you still don’t like it, see if you can switch your order or use your deposit towards another dress.

Good luck!

I’d kill to be a size 12 in bridal. I was bridal size 20, guess that means I’m ginormous.

Is the date on your profile correct? If so, you have so much time before you need a fitting. If your self conscious about your legs and butt, start working out! You have more than enough time to change your body and feel amazing in your dress!

@coolbride125:  What’s the shape of the dress?  A size 12 in bridal isn’t bad — My dress was ordered as a 12 and I wear a 4/6 street size.

@coolbride125:  Is your date right? You can find a new dress in time. If you order from a designer, you may need to rish the order, but you have 4 months. It can be done. You can also shop samples since your bridal size is a common sample size or you can order from a store with fast turnaround, like Alfred Angelo or Davids.

You are not fat! Size 12 bridal is not fat! I was a size 18 in bridal (size 12 normally), and I didn’t look fat. You need a self-esteem boost! You’re going to be a beautiful bride. Be careful that you don’t overdo it with the calorie counting and exercise or you will actually stop losing weight. All things in moderation. You have until at least 6 weeks before the wedding before you need to start alterations. You have tons of time.

What the hell are you talking about??? There is NO poochy belly. You look amazing! A shape like yours is made for a dress exactly like that 🙂
