I love your dress. Also, you look smaller than an 18W.

Don’t alter it to closer to my wedding.

I had a short engagment and I had this problem and they said if they had to take it in a 3rd time they would charge me so I ate like crazy and now I have alot of extra weight and its sucked.

So just wait!

Oh gosh, congratulations! That’s amazing news and soooo awesome. I think it’s a case of going to the right seamstress, I’ve heard of magic being done from a size 14 to a double zero! Don’t fret too much, people will make it work for you. Just enjoy your new lifestyle and body!

I think the fact that it is a corset back is a huge advantage for you! You can use several inches, and it will still fit. I would say to do alterations maybe 3-4 weeks before your wedding.

LOVE your dress! You look stunning! I would say that it would be an easy dress to alter becasue of the corset. The seamstress doens’t have to worry about where zipper lines up so they would only need to take in the sides and possibly the bust. That might need some reshaping if you lose some of your girls in the weight loss.

Congrats on going healthy! Please share your strategies!
