With a lace-up back that dress should be pretty forgiving for 10 pounds. Don’t stress yet. Not only are seamstresses pretty talented folks, you’ve got enough time to get back to your fighting weight.

 

Losing 10 pounds in less than 2 months is doable, but may not exactly be a pleasant process. Work out a bit more, count your calories (to a reasonable number, don’t starve yoruself), cut the things you KNOW you shouldn’t eat (like that Starbucks…) and you should see results.

It’s a lovely dress!  IMO, you should be fine.  The corset on the sample that is pictured is actually a little close together.  And if you look, the modesty panel is puckering in the center because the dress is laced too closely.  Take a deep breath and enjoy your fitting!!!

you’re small!  Doubt ten pounds is going to make you look bad:) At least you have a corset back! Dress is beautiful by the way:)

I’m sure you will be fine given the corset back!  10 lbs is definitely doable in 2 months if you are strict about it!  DH lost 30 lbs in 2.5 months for our wedding.

You should be ok since you have the corset back. Also if it is a little tight in the hips most gowns can be let out up to 2 inches at the side seams.

@O.My.Heart:  I second other PPs that the dress should be very forgiving to an extra 10 lbs. However if you want to lose it in about 2 months it is extremely doable. You just have to stay focused and try really hard!

Definitely doable.  You’ll have to see when you go to the fitting.  Sometimes the sample dresses are a little stretched out from being tried on so many times.  But the corset back should help

Drink lots of water and uptake your cardio a bit! The ten pounds should come fairly easy, plus as other bees suggested lace ups are forgiving. It all depends where you gained the weight too, right? But seriously. Drink a ton of water each day and it will flush your system and help you lose some of the water weight your body is storing. And  then just add some workinG out in. Remember, its less than a pound a week!
