KittyCatToe:  My bridal store made me sign a waiver saying if the dress doesn’t fit me, it is not their fault! I ordered the sample size which almost didn’t zip at all. They squeezed me in there and the dress was screaming for help. I’m down 16 since. It comes in soon (next couple of weeks!) I’m hoping I have a success story just like yours!

Congratulation girl, good for you!!!

KittyCatToe:  How many sizes smaller from what they sized you as, did you order it?  I need to order my dress and since I’m 8 months away, I’d love to lose 50lbs by the wedding.  I wouldn’t order 5 sizes smaller, but maybe 2 because I’m sure I can lose 30 if not the ultimate 50.  I don’t want to be too ambitious but don’t want the dress to be so huge that it can’t be altered.  I know I will lose some.  Your dress looks great btw

KittyCatToe:  Eeee love this thread, I did the exact same, tried the sample UK size 12 and it was perfect but a tiiiiny bit looser in the hips than I wanted so I ordered a size 10 and convinced myself I could lose 30lbs before it arrived in September…trouble is it arrived 2 months early(wtf!?)& I have to pick it up in 3 weeks, I’ve lost 10lbs of the 30lb goal so far so I’m not holding my breath(pun intended)that it will fit! Your dress is gorgeous and makes your figure look great!

That is awesome… I’m 6 months away from my wedding, I think this thread is giving me the much needed boost to do what I should have been doing all along.

That dress is beautiful and you look beautiful in it! Congratulations on your weight loss! I was really upset when my boobs got smaller too, but you can always put more things in your dress (pads), but can’t put in any less lol

KittyCatToe:  Great work, looking good! I did a 1200 cal a day program too when I was losing weight – I was so glad when I could up my cals, haha. I think it was a good decision to order the smaller size – the shop ordered me the size I was when I bought it and it cost me $500 in alterations as I had dropped another dress size by the time the wedding came around.
