So I went and tried my dress on last weekend (pics were posted) and now I’m really stressing about everything.
One, the dress doesn’t fit as it hasn’t been altered yet but it’s big to the point I had to keep pulling it up yet the top of the corset was tight enough to let an additional back fall out 🙂 I had previously tried on a dress that was actually too small but it made me look really thin in the bodice and under the chest. I’m bummed that I don’t look that thin in this dress and scared that having my alterations wont help.
The arms, the back fat and thinking about where I’m going to find the perfect undergarments when it comes time is really freaking me out!!!
I went from finding a dress drama to now having one and it all becoming too real that I have to be viewed by a couple hundred people in it!!
Anybody else freak out when their dress came in?

Yes. And I freaked out at my 3rd fitting because now that it actually fits me and is not too loose, I feel like a stuffed sausage. lol. The last time of taking it in also gave me chicken wings, which I had never had in this dress because it was always loose on me. I was really upset for days. I am keeping the faith though and trust that my seamstress will make sure I feel comfortable. I have one more fitting and if I do not like the feel of the top of the dress again then I will ask her to let it out a bit. She’s been very good so far at tweaking little things here or there so I have no reason to believe she won’t be able to fix whatever is bothering me.
As for your dress, know that once it fits you it will look totally different. And don’t forget to be specific and speak your mind if something about the dress is bothering you. If the top needs to be let out and the rest of the dress taken in, then that’s what you need to do. Tell your seamstress how you want the dress to look and I’m sure they can make it happen. Good luck! And keep reminding yourself to breathe. 🙂
