Did you try it one with a different bra than you did the first time? When I tried on my dress origionally the size 4 was too small (I had a strapless bra on), I went back to the store to try the dress on for my Future Mother-In-Law and Maid/Matron of Honor and did not wear a bra and the 4 was almost too big. Apparently a bra can make a big difference.

I had to let me dress out about that same amount, and it only cost about $150 in urban Boston (read: $$$). It’s bound to be way cheaper in North Carolina. I think you should contact a seamstress ASAP – at least then you’ll know what you are up against. Better to go in with all your options!

alterations people can do amazing things… I would take it ASAP to someone (reputable!) and see if they can fix it in the time. DON’T try and rely on “losing weight.”

Is there a local seamstress that can switch the dress to corset?  I would @ least search.

How much weight do you think you need to lose?  Normal weight loss is 1 lb a wk so I don’t know if this will be realistic or not?
