I was having serious dress regret after purchasing my first dress online. I lost a little weight after I went off the BC pill, and the custom made gown no longer fit right. It was a beautiful dress, but it didn’t flatter my figure. When I tried it on, I didn’t feel anything. No excitement, no pride, and I certainly didn’t feel beautiful.
I thought about it for a few months. Finally, on Christmas, I decided to buy a $99 dress online from David’s Bridal outlet. I took a total chance on it. I got a size 2; even though my bust and hips make me a size 6, my waist size matched up with their size 2 measurements. Plus, I’m only 5’1″, so I was hoping a smaller size would be a bit shorter. Anyway, long story short, the shipping was free and it arrived less than 48 hours later!
I love this dress. I feel sad when I look at the first dress and then I start to like it again. I want to find a reason to wear it (we might take some wedding photos in Sicily after the wedding – I might bring it along and take some photos in it). I just can’t part with it. Anyway, here is the new dress – what do you think? (Pardon the mess – we were unpacking from a trip…)
I can almost confidently say that no alterations will be needed!
