Has anyone ever had a wedding dress taken out? I’m freaking out. When I originally ordered my wedding dress I ordered the next size down thinking I would lose weight since the sample size was a little too big. Now that I’m a month out from my wedding. I went to try my dress on and it’s too small. 🙁 I’m going to hit the gym really hard and hope that I lose 15 lbs before then but I was hoping to have it let out some just in case. My dress is an Allure 9215 which is all lace. Please tell me there is some hope.

I have no wisdom regarding alterations, but 15lbs in a month is a lot- just be safe!

I was in a similar situation where I lost weight when I bought my dress and gained it back before the wedding. My dress had room in the seams to let it out, but I had to buy new fabric for the rouching band around my ribcage. Find a good seamstress and have them look at it. You might get lucky and have some room to let out. Either way, the seamstress can let you know your options. Do it soon though and try to lose weight but 4-8lbs is more realistic. Good luck!

ADemby1: I don’t mean to be discouraging but I would definitely not count on losing 15 lbs in the next month. That’s not doable for most people and things can happen where you don’t lose as planned. I’m not saying you should try to lose weight but to lose 15 lbs in a month you’ll probably have to starve yourself so you should just focus on losing what you can in a healthy way. I’d visit a seasmstress ASAP to see if there’s room to take your dress out or if you can make it a corset for more room. If not I’d look in to buying off the rack or a sample in the size you currently are since you don’t have a ton of time.

ADemby1: Mine was also too small (not on purpose!) you need to find a seamstress ASAP so they have time to fix it. Even if you are successful in losing 15 lbs, it does not necessarily mean you will lose it where you want; the weight comes off where it wants too. Find a seamstress like yesterday.

You may also want to look into having your dress made into a corset back. That is very simple to do and will give you a lot of extra room. As long as it is too small in the bodice and not the bottom of the dress.

Curlycupcake: iluvu30319: It has a built in corset and zipper. It need to be let out around the hip area and the sides. I have any appointment at a salon on Tuesday, they have wonderful reviews and they are known to work miracles(They also do custom dresses) so hopefully i’ll hear good news. I did look at the seams and there is room to let it out but I’m worried about the lace overlay.
