@TaraC2B:  I would have her let it out. It probably won’t affect the shape very much, but it will greatly increase your comfort.

@TaraC2B:  I have a trumpet lace dress, too.  I had my 2nd fitting last week, and it is still too big. She took it in along the waist, and it is a little loose on my hips, which I am ok with – it’s the bust part that is worrying me… I’m getting worried that it won’t look right!

I think that you should put your comfort first – you’ll want to be able to sit, eat, dance and breathe in that dress!  I don’t think it will make a huge difference if it’s a little looser in the hips.

Where is your dress from? I wonder if we have the same one  =o)

Have her let it out and look into some SPANX.  Not the sexiest undergarment in the world but they seriously do the trick.  Plus, the material they are made of makes the dress slide over your hips much easier.  I’m sure it will all work out for you in the end.  You still have plenty of time until your wedding.  A dear married friend of mine told me she was so excited and stressed leading up to her wedding she ended up having multiple “final fittings” because she kept losing weight.

@TaraC2B:  Is it possible to alter the slip so it is a little slimmer or just to not wear it at all?  Would the designer/seamstress be able to sew in a crinoline around the bottom of the dress to add voiume (if that’s why you’re wearing it) without adding extra layers around your hips?  Or if the slip is for modesty issues, would you be able to find something more fitted that fits the bill?

I’m with you about wanting to be able to eat on my wedding day.  I love the look of mermaids and fit & flares but I picked a ballgown because I didn’t want to worry about sucking it in all night.  Heavans knows brides deserve a little bit of a break when it comes to fitting into your wedding dress after spending 2 years preparing for 1 day!  Best of luck!
