Don’t purchase a smaller dress – your dress can easily be taken in!

@Mode:  I’ve lost at least a dress size since I purchased mine and I’ve been told the dress will be fine when it arrived and I tried it on. I’ve got my first fitting alterations appointment in early Feb so we shall see how we go, but I’m not worried.  

It all depends on each individual dress but my sister bought a Maggie Sottero gown and they ordered her a size 14 Australian (10 US) as her hips are bigger than waist etc (we are all pear shaped) She lost a ton of weight and would have been a 4-6 US when the wedding came. They took her dress in to the maximum they could and it was all fine but they said if she had lost anymore than that it wouldn’t have been able to go any smaller.

@Mode:  I would say def don’t buy a smaller dress! It’s much easier to have a dress take in than let out!  When I went for my first fitting  y dress was literally falling off of me because of weight I’ve lost. It’s a corset back that’s pulled as tight as it can and still won’t stay up lol. im actually going for my next fitting in a few weeks to get the corset taken in.
