So I had my second fitting today, and it was great! The dress fits perfectly. Just a little hemming to do.
What I’m obsessing over now is that getting into the dress and being nervous during the appointment had me sweating. The dress in the armpit area got a little damp (okay, this sounds really gross, sorry), and after doing some research online I am semi-freaked out that I’m going to go back in to the seamstress in a month and find the silk with yellow stains.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Does a short exposure to a bit of sweat automatically make yellow stains on light-coloured silk taffeta?

Ooh…I don’t have an answer about your stains (or potential stains). But I have also worried about this – I am a sweaty lady! But, I am willing to bet that your dress is OK.
Also, I’ve been using one of those prescription strength anti-perspirants these last two weeks before my wedding. I only use it every two or three days, at night only – it’s strong stuff – and you also can’t use it the night before you have to shave. But it really keeps me dry.

Yeah, I never thought about needing to be careful during fittings.

Yikes, could a dry cleaner fix that?

I’d say before you go back for your next fittings, start using Certain Dri. You apply it at night and over time it prevents the wetness from sweating. It’s pretty sweet stuff–definitely good prep for a wedding.

@ Vonnegurl – yeah, at least this has made me realize how important it is to control sweat on the real day! I’m going to be looking at some more serious stuff for sure.
@ brittanymichelle – Haha. Thanks for the comment, it made me feel a little less gross and less weird about admitting to the general public that I made my dress sweaty!

I was sweating so bad in my dress! Though I am not overly worried about sweat stains since the dress comes below my armpits. Certain Dri sounds like something I’m going to check out! It was only 75 degrees in the alterations shop and it will likely be 85-90 on my wedding day.

Certain Dri works wonders. Be careful to read the directions and follow exactly to avoid irritation. Don’t put it on right after shaving or a shower…ouchie! Also, let it dry a bit before you get dressed for bed because it can stain fabrics. Aside from those precaution, it really works!
