I ordered my dream dress just a month after getting engaged a year and a half ago. It fit like a glove and is so beautiful! Problem is, due to a new medication, I have gained 22 lbs since then and it doesn’t fit I’m getting married in six months and alterations need to begin in four. I spoke with the manager at David’s today to see what my options are and she said they could exchange the dress for a new one. I’m sure I’m only going to get what it’s worth now at the discontinued price. I don’t know how realistic it is to think I can lose the weight in that short amount of time, nevermind the added stress it has put on me. I’m so confused. One minute I say wait it out, the next minute I say save myself the stress. Ugghh..Help! Here’s a pic so you can feel my pain! Not the best of me, but LOVE this dres..

That dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you!!! I’m sorry you are going through this..I’m not sure what I would do in your situation but I understand it adds stress to you so maybe the better option would be to pick a different dress (I hate to say that because I LOVE that dress on you!)

I think you can easily lose 22 lbs in 6 months. if you stick to a loz cal diet adn workout a few times a week you can lose 1-2lbs a week.

Thank you so much! I went to David’s, tried it on, and it’s almost two sizes too small. I cried my eyes out, and then tried some other dresses on. Nothing even compared. The consultant told me if worse comes to worse, they can put a corset in. That made me feel better, but I would rather lose the weight and avoid the $180 corset charge! I’ve been working hard these last two weeks and so far have lost four pounds and weigh in again on Thurs. I figure if worse comes to worse, I’ll have the corset put in, but I would rather bust my butt and get the weight off. I love this dress so much!!
Thanks for your support!
