10 to 15 lbs is more than alterable. Buy it in your size now and have it taken in if you need to that way you have a dress that makes you feel great as you are now. This was a lesson I learned the hard way by purchasing a too small dress and getting depressed about it not fitting instead of buying a flattering one in my size. Thankfully I found one that looks great in me now and it has helped my self esteem so much. So that would be my advice 🙂

I purchased my dress last month.  It fits but I still plan on losing 20 or so pounds before our November wedding.  I bought a sample dress so I didn’t really have a choice on the sizing.  I’d say go ahead and get your dress in your size, 10-15 lbs is just enough that you can alter it without problems.  If you were losing 50lbs, that would be a different story.

I was at my goal weight when I went dress shopping. The year between buying it and wearing it I had to keep the same weight!

cbj9:  I wanted to lose about 25 pounds. I lost about 15, but while I looked better in the dress, it wasn’t enough of a difference to have it altered. I would buy it to fit you know, and look into alterations closer to the wedding date.
