Good for you!! Shapewear can definitely make a difference, so it’s worth giving it a try. Plus you still have 2 weeks to go, so you might be really close already when you try it on. 🙂

Firstly, a huge pat on the back for losing so much so far- you’ve done really well! 

I wear shapewear on most special occasions… I too have lost a large amount of weight and now have excess skin which tends to show up under certain garments. My favourite shapewear piece is like a one-piece swim wear (we call them bathers here…) with a hook and eye clasp between the legs for ease of using the toilet. I lose an inch all around and also have a much smoother look under my clothes. Mine was really cheap, under AUS$20 and does the trick! 

You might also be able to have the zipper back converted into a corset if needs be. Take it to your seamstress and see what options you have. 

Good luck, and don’t worry too much!

I wore a waist cincher and it worked nicely. Helps me get into pants that are way too small in the waist, lol. Congrats! Can’t wait to see the dress and be very proud of your weight loss!
