I’ve never put it on cause it’s not in yet! I’ve been waiting for five months and still have a month to go!

Mine is in and ready, but I’ve left it at the shop because I have cats… trouble making cats 🙂

I put it on once when it came in to check it out to make sure it fit, another time to have the bustle pinned, and one last time for the final alterations. Next time I have it on will be at my wedding on Saturday!

Only twice- it’s at my Mom’s house, since like mandypop, mine might be a little too enticing for kitty (has feathers on the back)

I had mine for 2 months before the wedding, and I figured I would never try it on. Didn’t want to risk something happening to it. I ended up trying it on once, to see what kind of bra I would need.

None because it hasn’t come in yet. But I will only be putting it on for alterations. And plan on keeping it at the bridal store to keep it protected.

I got mine 20 months before the wedding (perfect used listing). I put it on within a week twice. And then maybe only twice since then? Once to show a friend and once to show my mom and sister. Once I realized I couldn’t put it on by myself (it doesn’t look right with the interior corset not done and  I can’t clip it myself) that helped a lot. I plan on trying it on every couple months to make sure I’m not gaining or losing too much weight.

I got it in April and I’ve tried it on 3 times.

Showing my sister, showing my best friend and showing my mom.

Ive tried my dress on once and left it at the shop because I have a Gremlin(cat). However, I will begin my alterations on it late July early August. I’ve got 20 more lbs to lose( down 40. WOOP WOOP!)

I’ve had mine for a few months & I’ve only put it on twice vs. once a week.

I put it on a lot, but from my experience, I’d warn you to be careful! I did manage to get one little stain on the train! 😛

@pengoala:  My sister pretty much banned me from trying it on any more. She even threatened to take it away from me if I didn’t stop trying it on. She had a theory about it not being as special to put it on on the big day if I try it on once or twice a week.
