How significant of a size difference will you have after your breast augmentation?  I think it would be smarter to allow room for your new “girls” as it will be easier to take the dress in as you lose weight.  That dress is also form fitting around the hips so it might be better to order the size you would need now, and then have it altered once you are closer to your wedding. 

Congrats on the GORGEOUS dress, I love it and I’m sure it is going to look fantastic on you!

The dress is gorgeous!!

I would say let them measure you. it is a lot of pressure to try to fit into a gown if you order it too small. I’d be sure to tell them about your upcoming surgery though because that could make the difference between one size and the next. I was mortified about the size dress that was ordered for me (I am a street 12/14 and they ordered a 20) but I knew I didn’t want the pressure of having to squeeze into something so I let them ordered what they thought was appropriate. First fitting was saturday and lets just say the gown is huge- lots of alterations to be made, but again better that than worrying about not eating for the next few months.

LOVE IT!! Absolutely stunning and I’m sure will look gorgeous on you!! I think your goal is like he said, doable, as long as you put the effort into it. From your date, you have a little bit of time to wait to order but don’t wait too long. Depending on the designer, you could need anywhere from a month to 7 months to get the dress in.

I would try it on and get an idea of what size you are now and what you could be in a few months and after surgery. Like I said, you have time to wait before ordering and if you’re serious about losing weight, that’s a couple dress sizes. Maybe wait til after surgery and/or after a month or so of dieting to order? To be safe, I would look at 15 lbs just in case, I mean anything could happen, and that way if it’s too big you can have it altered. It’s easier to take it in than to let it out or get a new one.

Yay, I’m so happy you found “the dress”!! Hope this helps!!

It’s stunning, congrats! 

I would say order one size larger than what would work for you now, unless it’s a corset back, in which case I think you’ll be fine. You can always get it altered in, but it’s much more damaging and difficult to have it let out.

Such a gorgeous dress! I’d get it so that it’d fit your new “assets” but I think you really need to try it on. Because the dress is so fitted, as someone said earlier, I’m tempted to say to order it in your current weight and then have it altered to the weight you end up being closer to the wedding. It’s always easier to order a dress larger and get it altered smaller than the other way around.

Congrats on the dress! The breast augmentation would take you up anywhere from 2-4 sizes depending on how big you’re going. Although they will order for your largest measurement anyways, so if for example your hips are 2 sizes bigger than your bust right now, it will just even out and no need to order too much larger.
