    i think the dress looks fine.

    you have some time so just eat healthier.  (i hate the word diet) 

    if i lose weight, the first place is always the boobs.

    I think it looks great, just eat healthy and work out a few days a week and you will see the weight come off in 7 months. That is plenty of time.

    I honestly think you’ll be just fine. One thing we look for is whether or not the bust darts line up correctly, and your do. it may be something as simple as realigning the corset panel a teensy bit. 

    A trick we use in the store is to have someone give a firm tug to the inner skirt lining once you have the gown on. This will pull down any excess material that may be throwing off the fit. Once you do this, hold your hands tightly to your natural waist while you are being laced up. This keeps the dress from creeping up at the hip. Give it a try- I bet you’re much closer than you think ๐Ÿ™‚

    Honestly, if your wedding isn’t until July, then you have more than enough time to loses 10-15 lbs. I totally believe it’s possible.

    Trust me, 7 months is PLENTY of time to lose 10 – 15 pounds.  I lost 10 pounds in one month this summer, but I did put in a little effort.  I exercised for 30 minutes daily and used My Fitness Pal to stay at 1,500 calories a day.  I would’ve kept with it but I like how I look already and after a month, I got bored with the routine (that happens with me… oops).  You can do it, girl!

    I lose weight in the bust first so 10 lbs in 7 months should be  a snap!

    Youve got plenty of time!  I always ramp up my spin classes when I need to loose a few pounds.  Fond a good class and hey will kick your butt!  They are  hard, but you can burn between 600-800 calories a class if you follow the resistance the insructor gives.  Bonus, it tones your thighs and butt ๐Ÿ™‚  working the larger muscle groups helps burn more calories too, so another bonus for spin.   Dont forget the crazy endorphin rush after!


    Good luck!

    @ChelleNBlake:  Hows the weight loss coming along??  I’m doing nutrisystem and it only costs about $300/month for all your food, plus fresh fruits and veggies, but it might help if you’re too stressed/busy to deal with dieting!

    @Miss Leopard:  You’re practically the same measurements as me! It is a royal pain to find bras that don’t belong to the black/white/nude category ๐Ÿ™

    The best way to lose weight in your chest is to take up swimming and 7 months is plenty of time to lose 10-15 pds. They can let the dress out in the sides or put in a larger panel as well. Don’t order a new dress
