Jakesgirl110:  Do you have a picture of you in the dress? A stock photo will not really help us with how the dress is fitting on you. From what you posted, you may need to let the dress out… but we need to see you in the dress to know. Sorry Bee.

I have a very similar dress! I feel like mine is too tight as well but my seamstress has reassured me these types of dresses aren’t going to be easy to sit in. How she discribed it was when you sit your thighs spread out so it may be a little uncomfortable she has told me to shimmy the really tight part up a little so it is easier to sit! 

Hope that helps! 

You look stunning! Don’t regret not getting a different style!

Jakesgirl110:  First, you look great in that dress! But it would also look great if you had a little more space in there.

If you’re going to be uncomfortable with how it fits, I’d either get spanx and see how that helps or have it taken out. Crash dieting is not a great choice and you might not lose the weight where you’d like to. To lose a pound a day that isn’t water weight means you need a 3500 calorie deficit. That’s nearly impossible at your weight.

The dress is beautiful on you, but if it’s so tight that you can’t even sit in it, you’re going to be miserable all day. You can definitely let it out a bit– it’ll still look fine even if it isn’t on you like a second skin. See if your aunt can do it for you, because trying to lose 10 pounds in 10 days isn’t healthy! Worst comes to worst, you can always pull it up a bit before sitting. There’s going to be a table in front of you most of the time you’re sitting, so no one will notice, and even if they did, comfort comes first!

It looks good to me. Honestly, you’ll barely sit on your wedding day, so I wouldn’t worry about it.

Jakesgirl110:  First, beautiful dress! You noted that the buttons can button… but do these lay flat when they are all buttoned? It appears that the buttons may pucker if all of them are buttoned… so I would assume this area needs to be let out slightly- but not by much- so that the buttons are stright in line and flat.

What did your Aunt say? She is a seamstress… has she seen the dress on you in person? Has she worked on Wedding Dresses before?

My wedding dress consultant said that most people feel their wedding gowns are tight because they aren’t used to having a custom made/fit gown. She assured me that it’s supposed to be fitted and to some people who aren’t used to it, they may describe it as tight. Yiur dress looks fantastic.
