I’ve decided to go the pre-loved route when purchasing a wedding dress. There’s one that I’m pretty in love with (a Maggie Sottero), and the price is dead on 🙂 The one snag is that I really think I’m a size 6, and the dress is a size 4. I’ve made a little chart with the measurements:
The dress has a corsette back, so that really puts my mind at ease, but I’m still a little bit worried I’ll be like overflowing out of it. I’d really appreciate any thoughts/suggestions you might have!!

Is there some way you can try that dress on at a store? Try on a 4 at the store and see how it fits! Then you can order the pre-loved one.
Also if you post a pic of the dress we can help you better!
Are you maybe thinking of losing a few pounds or are you just fine right now?

I agree – it would be helpful if we knew which dress

If you know who you’re going to use for alterations, maybe show them the dress and your measurements and get their feedback on the matter. I know to take my bust in the seamstress had to rip apart the whole front of the torso and bring it in from around the waist.

Yes, I think I can try on something similar – I might even be able to try the dress itself on! (Although that would be a bit of a drive) And yes, this has been such awesome weightloss motivation. Thus far I’ve convinced myself out of my morning donut and am super excited for today’s gym session 🙂 yay!!
Haha I’m such a goof – of course posting the dress should have been an obvious first step! It’s the Maggie Sottero Fiorenza (in white). Here’s a picture:

@GreenDream: I can totally imagine what a pain altering the bust would have been. Espeically in dresses that have some beading or intricate lacework – what a nightmare! My worry is the opposite of yours – that there won’t be enough material in the bust to allow for any expansion-type alterations. And even with a bit of weight loss, I’m really hoping not to loose any in the boob area!
