- Wedding: January 2012
I bought my dress (a Sophia Tolli) off the rack at an awesome price. It fits perfectly, and I won’t need to get alterations done (aside from hemming and bustle), so I was really excited. However, my wedding’s not for another 4 months, and I’m worried about the fit come the wedding day. My weight fluctuates a lot, and I was at the lower end then, not to mention I just started birth control, so I’m worried I might gain a little weight. I don’t think it’s anything that can’t be managed by a corset, but then I’m worried I might not gain any weight. The problem with that is that I am a 34DDD, so the only strapless bras that will work on me are longlines, which means they’ll make my waist a little smaller, making the dress a little loose. My solution is to try to only gain 3-4 pounds from now to the fitting, cuz I’d rather need a corset than find out the dress is too loose. I would love to put a corset back in it, but I *really* can’t afford anything on alterations aside from the hem and bustle, so I’m just gonna have to adjust my weight for the dress. Add to that the worry my dress won’t stay up, and I’m freaking out over something that’s probably kinda silly. Anyone else have a similar problem?
