I’m sure a seamstress can let it out

You have 2 months, that is plenty of time to either lose a bit of weight or have the dress taken out a tad (or both if need be). Tell the seamstress your concerns and get her opinion.

FWIW I would NOT make that dress a corset. The back is too beautiful.

Bryttany Bischof :  They can’t cut at the hips and make it larger?  Sorry not a seamstress

Bryttany Bischof :  Go see a seamstress now for peace of mind. In the meantime, keep on cutting the carbs and upping your healthy fats. You’ll lean out big time! I’ve dropped almost two pant sizes by doing that.

Bryttany Bischof :  Eeessshhh..I honestly wouldn’t stress about undergarments until you figure out how the dress will fit. It is low, but it’s beautiful!

If you’re really in a pickle, try the wildrose cleanse. I lost 15 pounds in 12 days. No, you don’t starve yourself or anything, you can eat as much as you want. You just cut out EVERYTHING that’s processed and strictly eat whole foods. I actually didn’t even miss eating sugar or fatty foods while I was on it because I felt so AMAZING!

Try shapewear, do lower body weight training (it will firm you up and slim you down), eat whole foods (nothing from a box, processed, sugary, etc). And ask your seamstress if there’s any extra fabric that she can let out.

It’s a beautiful dress!

Ask a seamstress how much she can take out. If you can physically get it on at this stage then taking out the seams and dieting like crazy is likely to be enough. You do have two whole months, you can do it! I think a corset on the butt would look pretty odd.

Jump on MyFitnessPal and track your food. It will guide you through setting it up and all you have to do is log your food and stay in your calorie limit. You will only lose weight in a calorie deficit, and you can’t guarantee that just by cutting carbs. You can safely lose up to two pounds a week and you have two months- that is plenty of time to lose 10 pounds.

Try it for a week and if you can’t stick with it, talk to a seamstress about letting out the hips a little bit. But even if you try to stick with calorie counting for the next two months and fail half the time, you can probably manage to lose a couple of pounds, which will help it be more comfortable if you can’t lose it all.

Bryttany Bischof :  Start having fiber every day, or as often as possible. I had a similar issue with my dress and it really helped me to shed pounds off my belly and hip area before the wedding. Fiber basically binds to fat and helps to remove it from the body. I used this one and it worked very well- http://www.vitacost.com/renew-life-cleansemore-60-vegetable-capsules-1 . Quite easy to find in any health shop. Or Psyllium husk, I’ve heard it’s also effective. That plus some healthy exercise (esp. jump rope) really does the trick!!
