Thank you all for your input.
I know that I can be obsessive about my weight, and is something that I have been dealing with since I was a teen, but I think that I have it under control as I recognize my triggers for the most part.
I am going to cut alcohol and see how my body reacts to it, and if anything I’ll go ahead and let out the dress.
Again, thank you for all the input.

People should NOT be giving you advice on how to lose weight.
Change the dress to fit your body, not the other way round. You could be overweight and I’d still give the same advice.

dt2413 : I would again encourage you to check the size chart for the dress designer and compare it to your measurements to determine how off the dress sizing is and where. It is very possible the size 2 in whatever dress you ordered is just too small for your frame – I’m not talking about body fat or bloating here – I’m talking about your pelvis, ribcage, bust, etc. Losing weight may help the fit, but depending on where it’s too tight, it could very well not help much.
I’m not going to lecture you about your weight or diet, but please understand that if you ordered the wrong size dress, which it sounds like you did since you ordered based on an arbitrary street size number, then the solution is not that you should lose weight.

If weight / dieting is such a trigger to you it is absolutely bananas to me that you are going to try and lose any weight. Get the dress taken out or get a bigger size. Protecting your mental health and wellbeing should be your number one priority, not a dress.

Definitely get a larger size. Dresses do not follow the normal size range of clothing. Get the dress taken out or get a larger size.
