Samples are tried on by hundreds of women, many of which are larger than the sample size. The sample dress probably stretched out and I am guessing yours will too! Both of my gowns did. 

Are you still able to breath and move around comfortably?

You can gain weight in that area, I do quite often, it’s my 2nd red flag (after my thighs start touching each other) that I’m putting in some weight, I get a small roll right under my boobs (It’s like the fat purposely avoids the waist line).




If you can move and it’s just a matter of breathing I am sure a good seamstress can loose some of the dress (since it sounds it just needs to be a little bit), but it depends on how good the seamstress and the dress, does it have beading? lace? I was once told wedding dresses are made to be easily altered up to two sizes up and down, so I am hoping you case is something easy.




Good luck!

@heathuhhhhwebbbb:  What is the dress fabric? Depending on the material, you might be able to “stretch out” the dress a bit. BUT I would recommend having your seamstress let it out a tad instead.


Also, stay away from weight training and focus on cardio/clean eating to stay lean. Although muscle takes up less room than fat, when you first start gaining muscle, you tend to get “bigger” first and then it all starts toning up later.
