I have lost 40lbs. I have had 2 other fittings in which the dress was always too big. My last fitting it fit great on the boob area but still too big on the waist area. Today was my last fitting and it fits great on the waist and now it’s too tight on the back. Problem is I haven’t gained any weight, but I am on the last couple days of my period. I told my seamstress that I didn’t gain anything and then she asked if I was on my period and I said yes.. then she said that this was normal. But is it? I have a very irregular period so I don’t know how my body changes.
Does anyone know if this is normal to have a weight gain in your chest area or back? I don’t want a back fat bulge in my pictures and now this is added stress that I don’t need. I don’t know how much more I can lose in that area before the wedding.
Any words of advice?

its normal..i had a weigh in on the first day of my period in may– it was 10 pounds more then my weighin in april.. drink lots of water is my only advice.

Cut back on the salt and drink water – I am a small girl and I gain 5 pounds of water weight during my period and then it drops right back off. I’m an awful bloater.

It’s not unheard of for me to bloat 5 pounds right before my period and on the first day.

amanda.hearon: I gain exactly 5 pounds every time I have my period. So I am pretty sure you’re normal! It will pass!

I thought it was something normal. but if you want something that fits you should try a diet

I get it all the time I usually gain 2-4 lbs right before my period starts and then drop it when I start.

It’s quite usual for your breasts to enlaarge during your period, this may be causing your dress to feel tighter. Don’t stress, leave it a few days and try it on again.

Do the Jillian Michael Dandelion tea cleanse for the week prior. You just drink the tea juice mixture for 7 days in addition to eating healthy. It helps me de-bloat and lose 4-5 lbs before a big event.

I had my second to last fitting on my period, and my dress was too tight on my stomach and hips (it was creasing). I was freaking out, so was very carefull about what I ate. It turns out on my last fitting my dress was TOO BIG! We ended up having to do a little bit of last minute alteration work to make the dress smaller and pick up the dress even closer to the wedding. A little bit of extra stress, but it was perfect on my wedding day.

I tend to add about 10lbs during my period but it just magically leaves….I hate it. I have hope that you will be just fine but I agree about increasing water just to play it safe! Best of luck!
