If the dress is heavy and the weight of it is placed on the straps, the straps may stretch. Especially if they are on a bias cut. But in 6 weeks? Over the course of years, yes a big possibility but not in such a short time span. There is not seam allowance in the straps or sideseam under the armpit to let out?

Odd, almost all dresses have a side seam, even the stretchy ones. Dresses that are not stretchy, as I would imagine your dress is not, should have something there. If there is not fabric then you really don’t have options
