The great thing about corsets is that you can pull it closed. If you gain 10lbs you’ll be fine. Don’t stress about it. You will look great on your wedding.

Moms can be overly critical in their quest for perfection.  You love the dress and it flatters your body.  Listen to the alterations lady, she wouldn’t have kept complimenting you if she didn’t believe it.  No ones needs more negativity, especially during a stressful time.

@missjewels:  Just tell your Mom, “One more comment like that and you’re reservation at The Retirement Castle will be confirmed.”

I wore a waist cinching corset underneath my corsetted dress (I wore two corsets pretty much) and it worked out great. I was afraid I wasn’t going to fit into my corset back dress either, but my girls squeezed me in there and when I couldn’t breathe well, it was tight enough.

I’d just shake it off if I were you.

@Nona99:  *snort*

@missjewels:  Sorry your mom is being a jagoff. Mine loves being critical, too: if it’s not my weight, it’s my grown-out acrylic nails or roots. I remind her she’s no spring chicken when she acts like that, you should consider doing the same.

Your waist IS super tiny and I’d be willing to bet anything that corset dress looks incredible on you.

@Trixxie_90:  This!

I’m petite and my dress has a zipper. I’m worried that I won’t fit in my dress!

@Hyperventilate:  why didn’t i think of TWO corsets??

It was comforting to know I had a corset back and no matter if I lost 10 or gained 15 that dress was going to fit on my wedding day. 

OP don’t let your mom get you down, I’ll bet shes feeling some jealousy over your tiny waist and big boobs!

@missjewels:  I don’t know your mom and if she regularly insults your weight or not.

But if my mom said that to me, I’d just be like, “Truth. Don’t let me eat rice when I get home.” Because at the end of the day, I know what size I am, I know the dress I picked was perfect on me when I first tried it on. It’s realistic for me to control my weight until my fittings and my wedding day. 

I wouldn’t take offense, and I’d just watch my weight.
