This is me in a size 18 wedding dress. I believe I was a street size 14 or so. ETA: your dress is gorgeous!

Your dress is beautiful and so are you!

You should purchase a tailors tape measure if you don’t already have one and measure yourself. Compare your measures to Allure’s size chart, found here:

Loren Irwin :  Your dress is gorgeous! I don’t know how big your seems are, but my seamstress was able to add almost 3 inches to each side by letting out the seams fully. She ended up having to take it back in! Anyhow, DB here. Size 18.

MmeSilverBullet :  it might just be my phone but your picture isn’t showing up. Not sure if it might be different on a desktop.

 Can you get a seamstress to remove the buttons and do a corset back? That will give you more room. The dress is beautiful!

Loren Irwin :   Beautiful gown. You can get the dimensions of each grown from the bridal salon selling them to gage how many inches you have to loose. Might want to consider a back up dress just in case. Good luck!

I don’t know if my dress is an 18 (it was made to my measurements), but it’s definitely big. They measured my hips at 50″. It’s a little snug in the hips, but I do hope to lose another couple of inches. If the salon can squish 50″ of butt and hips into a trumpet, there is hope for you for sure!
