@kimbo89:DON’T WORRYYY!!! No sense in stressing out over a hypothetical situation that you made up in your mind. Your dress will fit you and be perfect done for your wedding!!

Aw, I’m sorry you had a bad day but I am sure that it will all work out! Have you tried wearing spanx under the dress? They make me a whole size or two smaller!

Oh hun, take some deep breaths and know that you are NOT ALONE…..

I am sure that with three weeks to go, the seamstress can work wonders on your dress, to make it comfortable on you for your big day!  It’s totally fine to have a breakdown here or there, do not worry, this is totally fixable!

She said she can fix anything, no matter what happens, so I think it will be fine! Kudos to you for lasting this long without a big freakout…I haven’t had one yet but I’m sure I will!

@kimbo89: I bet the seasmstress will be able to fix it no problem, I’d try not to worry about it too much until then because there’s nothing you can really do. Buy if you’re going to stress anyways like I know I would, I’d say one – make sure your chest is in there properly. Sometimes readjusting the girls can make a way bigger difference than you would think! And two – I love corset backs, they can be a gorgeous solution if there isn’t enough fabric, although it sounds like that won’t be the case for you.

Are you sure maybe your not just a little bloated from the time of the month or a recent salty food issue? 4 weeks seems like such a short time to be legitimate weight game.

Regardless, thank the lord for the seamstress! Everything will work out and you will look stunning on your day!!!

@Eva Peron: That happened to me.. I tried on my dress and it was snug! Like couldnt breathe snug… so I drank a bunch of water (to flush the salt out) and tried it on again 3 days later and it fit normal.

Okay, 4 inches (unless you are an giantess) is ALOT of weight. Unless you are eating nothing but fried foot and ice cream, no way you gained that in few weeks. (To give you an indication, I am 5’1″ and every inch on me is about 7 lbs, on a taller person, it would be more. Even if I tried I could not put on 28lbs in a month or so).

As a PP suggested, drink ALOT of water, like YOUR WEIGHT IN WATER A DAY. Also, fruit is a natural diuretic, full of nutrients and great for your skin. Load up on fruit, high fiber veggies and a little bit of lean protein. A few days you will slide back into the dress and with all the fruit and water your skin will thank you for it.
