I’ve lost 25 pounds since I ordered my dress in June. It comes in this December. I ordered it a size bigger just to be sure. Ugh. I’m worried about having to alter it SO much that it alters the design of the dress.
Also, I don’t necessarily want to stop losing… anyone out there have experiences altering a dress way down? (always better in than out, I guess). I fully expect alterations to cost the amount of my dress.

If its to much altering and you have the time, you may want to sell your dress and go shopping for a new one. Your new body may look better in a different siloutte.
Congrats on the weight loss!

i was concerned about this when i ordered my gown…our wedding is still over a year out, and i am hoping to lose ~40lb before then…however i was nervous at the time that i ordered the gown that i might not lose as much, or maybe not at all, or possibly lose some and then gain back, etc… i was between sizes, so what the consultant told me was that the best thing to do was order the smaller size, and that way if i stayed the same size they could let it out where i needed, since i would only be half a size bigger, and if i lost weight, they can take it in up to three sizes before the integrity of the design is lost and the dress would basically have to be recut.
