when i went dress shopping at davids bridal they let me put my own dress on then they zipped me up or laced me up so they really didnt see my body.  Your wedding dress size is generally bigger than whatever your street clothes are.  After my baby I was a size 17 in jeans and I managed to get back to my size 11 after about 7 months.  Try cutting out soda and even juices.  I was just drinking green tea and water.  Instead of regular milk try almond milk.  Work out as much as you can and cut down on the amount of carbs you eat.  It’s hard in the beginning but you can do it!!!!  And dont be afraid to go dress shopping.  Your hubby loves your body and he’s going to love you in any dress.  Get a dress to fit your body now and if you have o alter it down then its ok but at least you dont have to worry about bindging to fit in it.  GOOD LUCK!!!!

You need to go dress shopping now, hon. You’re cutting it close to get many dresses in on time.

The consultants will be nice to you. It’s their job. If they aren’t nice, leave. I am a size 18/20, and everyone was totally lovely to me through the whole process. I prioritized being realistic and having a sense of humor about the whole thing — not everything looked good on me, but I knew that SOMETHING would…and in fact many somethings did.

Make sure you wear the sort of underwear that you want to wear under your gown — so a GOOD strapless bra and whatever sort of support garments you want to wear. For me this was a VS bra which added at least a cup size to even out my pear-shaped self and a pair of Lane Bryant full briefs which smoothed everything out without being as restrictive as Spanx. Do what works for you, though.

All I can say is not to be nervous and to keep an open mind. 🙂

I am 100% with all the advice the two ladies above me gave you. Also please try to enjoy your experience.  This is the part we’ve been dreaming about right?!  Once you put the veil on you see yourself in another light!  So if you feel yourself getting overwhelmed in the fitting room take a deep breath and remember that you are doing this all for you and your soon to be husband’s special day.  Congrats sweetie and enjoy!
