I’ve officially lost 40lbs on weight watchers! I’ve reached my goal and I feel awesome! Woo!!
Only one small problem. I bought my wedding dress when I was about 30lbs heavier from a second-hand bridal store. At the time the dress was maybe just a little loose in the bust but fit well on my waist and hips.
I tried it on yesterday and it’s swimming on me now. I have to hold it up so that it doesn’t just slip off me!
The dress doesn’t have a lot of details (no crystals or anything like that) but it does have some shirring/folds in the fabic.
When I bought the dress the seamstress there said she could take it in up to 4 sizes, but I’m kind of worried I’ve lost more than 4 sizes. My waist went from 32″ to 27″ and I dropped from a 36C to a 34B bra size. I haven’t bought new clothes yet (I was waiting until I reached my goal) so I’m not sure what size I am now.
Am I in trouble? Do you think they’ll be able to take in the dress? If not I’m kind of hoping they’ll take it as a trade in so I can get another…

I would go see a seamstress IMMEDIATELY and ask if you can get it taken in enough without losing the integrity of the dress. You’re running a little short on time so you really need to know ASAP if you need to get a new dress.
Also? Congrats! That is amazing!

Unless you’re like 4’11” 40 pounds shouldn’t be 4 sizes. I wouldn’t worry.
I lost 75 pounds and went down 5 sizes. I am quite tall though.
Why don’t you just go to a store and try on some clothes to see what size you are now?

Congratulations on the weight loss, that is awesome.
I agree with @CorgiTales: go see a seamstress now just incase there is nothing they can do with your current dress.

I went shopping yetserday and I bought a pair of jeans… size 4!!!
The label on my dress says size 12, but I think I was more like a size 10.
I’m 5’2″ btw.
I made an appointment with a seamstress for September.
