- Wedding: June 2013
So I’ve really turned up the already strenuous work out these last few months with a bootcamp addiction on top of running, and I’m really happy I did it because weight loss is usually such a slow process for me. Whenever I turn it up, my body resists the loss for a long time and it’s easy to give up and go back to the usual, but I’m glad I stuck with it. I am including a picture of one of the first times I put my dress on so you can get an idea of the difference.
However, I am concerned about alterations & the wedding is in one week!! We started the alteration process about 3 weeks ago. The dress was too big in the chest (as usual!) so we decided to take it in there, but my sister said the corset back was just right and we should’t alter it. Knowing how hard I’ve been working, that made me a little nervous incase I lost any more. Well, I did! Now the bottom of the corset is totally connected and actually a little loose in the hip area (it’s too late to takeit in at this point). I’m not sure if you can see that clearly in the bottom picture. But now the top was taken in and puffs out at the bottom of my chest which is makeing it looser in the ribcage area. That makes me feel like I have to tighten it more on the top which of course creates more back and armpit fat. He is going to take it in a little more to compensate for the part that’s poofing out. I’m hoping that will make it so we don’t have to tighten it as much on top, but will maybe have a little more room for tightening toward the middle. What do you guys think, any suggestions? Thanks!!
The dreaded before pic;
After weight loss, before alterations;
After first round of alterations; I think it fits fine, But the chest really needed to be taken in so I don’t fall out.
Most reent alteration. I’m not sure how well you can see it but it’s all the way together from about the middle down;
The next few pictures show the difference between it poofing at the bottom of the chest & the when I press in. I think you can also see how it puffs out a little around the rib cage too. I’d like it to lay flat once it’s over. I think the pressing in helps with the armpit area, but i guess we we won’t know until it’s done!
Thanks for looking everyone. Any advice or encouragement is greatly appreciated. I still love the dress & will probably be able to get over a little akwardness…
