Well, I think it’s great that you worked so hard, yes maybe they need to let it out a little, but remember it’s cos of all that great muscle you built up 🙂 once you try it on again, I am sure you will feel great, and you will see all the hard work you did paying off 🙂 (hugs)

My friend has that same issue with dresses. She’s a sporty girl too and it’s all thanks to muscle. Just saying, I rather have firm then flabby legs anyday. Yes, you may have to have your dress let out for your wedding DAY but the months after, you’ll have nice looking legs and I’m sure the fi won’t mind one bit. And how dare her say that to a bride! She’s not paid for rude comments!

I’m sorry – that sounds like a very frustrating situation!  And that woman doesn’t sound all that nice or sensative, but all she can really tell you is if your shape has changed.  I don’t think its all that uncommon to have things fit a little tighter if you gain some muscle, which is actually a good thing!  If you were feeling great before you went in – thats the important bit, but I am sorry that it is causing you issues with your dress.

Go take a nice bubble bath, have a glass of wine, do something relaxing. I’m sure the stress of life and wedding planning is just getting too you right now. Like all the PP have said, being fit is NOT a bad thing. I’m sure by the next dress fitting everything will be perfect. Cheer up! =)

EW that seamstress should be fired! That’s so incredibly rude and inappropriate to say to a bride, of all people. I have muscley quads as well, and it can make dress/pant shopping a little tricky. I wouldn’t worry too much about letting your dress out, because you know it’s not because you got fat, its because you got really fit! You should be proud of yourself! I know it’s easier said than done, but I’m sure you look beautiful!

@hanzabelle: I’m sorry you are feeling bad about your dress and what the dumb seamstress said to you…that was incredibly rude! People like that are exactly why I think brides should take a friend who is not afraid to be rude back lol. I definitely would have said something on your behalf! 

You are so right about the most important thing being the people we love…that has become so much more evident to me lately and it is such a good lesson to learn and have in mind always. But don’t feel bad about crying and having a rant about your experience…you deserve to feel good about yourself after all of your hard work and eating good!
