I haven’t gotten married yet, but I’m worried about this also!

I’m terrified that my dress is going to be too big and slip down and I’ll flash everyone!

I dont’t really have any advice except to leave your last fitting as late as possible, that’s my plan

@magicpotato: I’ve been worried about this too. I suppose you’ve got to make sure you eat your normal amount of meals a day. I keep trying on a pair of shorts I recently bought to make sure I haven’t lost or put on any weight.

I accidentally lost weight even though I didn’t notice about a month before.  She actually told me to make sure I eat or it wouldn’t fit even with the corset completely closed.  I gained a few pounds back although not all of it but it also helped that the seamstress was the only one able to tie it as tightly as she did so it didn’t look weird in back.  The seamstress also told me though that she sees a lot of brides lose about 10 lbs in the last two weeks before the wedding.

No, I actually gained a pound or two. Dress still fit, but it was close…

Get some heavy-duty double stick tape… it did this with a formal dress that was a bit too large and it really helped!

Make sure you eat! And get on the scale each day. Not to freak you out, but also take pictures of yourself to make sure your face doesn’t start to become sunken. (This happened to my hair dresser before her wedding when she hit her “goal weight.” She had to put on 3 lbs to get her face looking normal!)

I went for my final fitting yesterday. Um yeah, I’d lost weight all around my boobs. With my corset, my dress didn’t fit. The seamstress gave me the EVIL EYE. Ugh!

My mom said that this happened to her too. She just ended up getting a padded bra to fill out her dress better since the seamstress couldn’t continually take it in.

I saw my seamstress the morning before my wedding and she made last minute adjustments to account for the last minute changes.  See if your seamstress would be willing to do that.  For me it was only a pinch of fabric, but it made a difference.
