If it has a corset back you might not need any alterations at all–just lace it a bit looser up top!

i bet you can burn a couple calories by panicking, so that could help a little bit! 😉  Don’t worry, you’ll be good w/ that corset.  Wish i had gotten one! haha

If you purchased your gown new, most designers leave some extra fabric for adjustments. To know for sure you will need to talk to a seamstress. Make sure it is a seamstress that has experience with altering bridal gowns; especially if your gown has a lot of beading.

Definitely no need to panic, esp if you have a dress with a corset back. You can lace it up looser AND your dress could probably be let out at least 2 sizes if necessary (1 dress size = about 10-15lbs).

If its a corset back you probably dont need to take anything out.  You can have the top looser than it was and the bottom tighter and it should work.  I kept saying it was fine if I gained weight before the wedding because it was a corset dress not zip up 🙂

Your wedding isn’t until April, right? You might have a lost a few pounds by then.  Try not to stress.

Don’t panic! You’ll be fine, especially with a corset back. If all else fails, I’m sure you could get some alterations done!

Yeah you may not need to let it out, but you DO have time to watch what you eat and exercise a little. That’ll probably make you feel better than having it let out!

You have time!
