I purchased David’s Bridal Style 9T3090 this past weekend. I tried uploading photos of it but for some reason came across some problems. Here is a link…
Please take the time to look at the front and back views so i can get your opinion. anyway, I ordered a 16. In jeans, I wear a 12-14. The fit perfectly, just didn’t zip about 2 inches up to the top. Here’s where my fears come in. I am currently working with a nutritionist and doing a pretty intense work out program and have lost 13 pounds so far (doing this plan for about 2 months). My wedding is in April 2012 so I am hoping to lose another 20-25 pounds before then.
When I chose the dress, I thought I had to hurry and order it to ensure that it would come in in time. Instead, it was on sale so I bought it off the rack. I was not expecting to go home with a dress the same day, by any means. I think that’s another contributing factor to my worry..
Now I am terrified that the dress will not be able to be taken in very much, especially because of the lace part in the back. I didn’t want to buy a too-small dress in case, for whatever reason, I wouldn’t be able to lose much more weight. Now that the weight is coming off, I am having nightmares of my dress being all disproportioned or ill-fitting if I go down a few sizes. I read somewhre that this dress can only be taken in two sizes–Just want your opinion, bees! Thank you:)

I just wanted to say that your dress is beautiful!!
Obviously i recommend speaking to a professional, but I don’t really see it being a problem.
good luck and congrats on all of your weight loss so far!

Hey dress twin!!! i maintained my weight for that dress… but with any dress you usually can only take it in 2 sizes or let out 2 sizes.

@banana_anna: thank you! I adore it..I just hope it retains its shape and beauty after it is all said and done..i don’t want to be afraid to loose weight so my dress looks good! I never thought I’d fear that lol
All sales are final on the dress so I’m stuck with this size no matter what

You are not going to have any trouble taking the dress in. The lace part will actually be easier to take in than the satin part, because the pleating needs to be matched up on the satin part, but a good seamstress will not have any trouble doing that.

Well, if you get too thin just think of the fun you’ll have gaining some weight to fit into your beautiful dress!

you probably already got this figured out but i had the same problem with the same dress. once you lose more than 2 sizes they exchange the same dress for a smaller size. i traded my bigger one in already and had no problems.

YAY A DRESS TWIN!!! and I totally feel ya with this one! I have been trying to lose weight too and my aunt is a pro seamstress but even she told me that typically a dress can only be taken in or let out 2 dress sizes…I do know that DB will let you exchange your dress up to a certain point..i think its 6 months..
