I’m glad I’m not the only one with this problem! I avoid mentioning that I’m trying to gain weight to fit into my wedding dress because people just have the most incredulous reactions. I’ve had a hard time keeping weight on the last year or so, and I want to gain a few pounds so my dress fits snugly rather than a tad too loose. I’ve been working hard at it for about a month and the dress is starting to fit better already!

Same problem here! When I took the measurement I was 7 lbs heavier except that I pack them all in my bum LOL

Yep!  I’m more than 23 pounds lighter than when I bought my dress (and almost 3 dress sizes).  I could zip it then (with some effort), but now it’s going to have to be taken in.  Makes me wish I’d bought a smaller dress, but I’d rather take in than have to squeeze in!

YES! I’m terrified of this! Not because of losing weight, but because usually strapless dresses are constantly falling off of me. I hope I can find a good seamstress!

maggie dresses are good because of the corsette…

im a street size 2/3 and they ordered me a 6 in maggie (32Dear Daughter boobs) and i told the tailor that i was planning on losing weight and he said its perfectly fine because of the corset. it has room to squeeze in.
