    You just need to tone, not necessarily lose that weight. 7 months is PLENTY of time to get to the gym and start a strength training program.

    It looks like it fits you. Undecided

    I think if you gained 10-15 lbs and it’s mostly in the bust (in my dreams!) , then it will also most likely be the first place that you will lose it. It really just depends on whether you want to lose the weight or not. With 7 months to go that’s only between one and two pounds a month that you have to lose, which sounds pretty reasonable, unless you are happier at the size you are now. I would also think that you should have a little wiggle room since it looks like it has a corset back? Smile

    You can definitely lose enough weight to get it to fit like the first pic.  For what it’s worth, it looks like it fits fine in the last picture.  Have you tried it on with the original bra?  Beautiful dress and very flattering!  You love the dress, so focus your efforts on being as healthy as possible.  I really think you will have no problem getting it to fit the way you want.  I have a Maggie Sottero dress and the bridal salon said they can alter up or down two sizes, so I really don’t think you need to ditch this dress.  🙂

    I’m sorry you are in this position and I understand how stressed you probably are. If you were able to fit in it before you should be able to loose the weight and fit in it again. Instead of using more money to reorder a dress could you instead get a personal trainer or join a group workout? 7 months is plenty of time to loose 10 pounds.

    Worst case scenario is you DON’T lose any weight… just see if the seamstress can get a larger panel for the corset back.

    You really do have plenty of time to lose the weight. Yes, losing weight sucks really bad, but in the end, it sounds like you’ll have just as much work and stress trying to order a new dress, sell the old dress, try to move things in the budget around, etc. as you would finding a good diet and sticking with it. If it were me, I’d at least try to lose the weight before I spent a lot more $$$ on the new dress. You have been that weight recently, so it shouldn’t be too hard to get back to it.

    Also, if you are worried about your bust, keep in mind a lot of women lose weight from there early on. Even if you don’t, I’m not sure why you’d need a bra with that dress. I’ve worn corsets before, and cannot imagine trying to wear a bra under them. If laced properly, the corset wll be way more supportive than the bra. Not contending with the bra should give you a little more room in the dress.

    Even if you end up in a worst case scenario and don’t wind up losing a pound, I think it will be ok. The dress doesn’t look bad on you as it is!

    I agree with the PP. You can definitely tone up by then and the corset will give you a little extra room!! 🙂

    Fat you?  I’d be more worried about needing glasses vs. needing a new dress 😉

    That dress is too beautiful to give up!  And look at it like a sign to get healthy.  Only keep healthy snacks in the house, don’t eat out, and get lots of exercise!  You can do it!
