So last night I went to pick up my dress from alterations. My first fitting was March 5th and my dress fit PERFECTLY! All I needed done was a hem and bustle.
I try it on last night when I went to pick it up, and the lady couldnt zip it up all the way!!!
I havent gained any weight within the month. I weigh myself all the time so I know that much.
All my clothes still fit. I even bought a size 14 pants last week because my size 16 pants were getting to be too loose. And they fit perfect. Its not like I have to squeeze myself into them.
The bra I bought when I bought my dress is the one that goes all the way down my stomach and even that fit fine and she put it on me with no problem. I would have assumed if that fit me perfectly, why wouldnt my dress.
So anyway. I guess I need to lose some more weight ASAP.
I’m just hoping and praying I can lose the weight to make it zip up all the way.
Anyone have any good advice?? =-/

That’s really strange. I’m sure you’ll be able to fit in it soon though! Good luck!

Dont eat bread. It always makes my stomach bigger. Drink lots of water and cut down on portions. And exercise everyday. Youll thin out fast.

I have a mini stepper at home so I’ll have to start putting it to real good use.
I run around like crazy at work so I get some good exercise there too.
And I already only drink water lol.
Have to really start watching what I’m eating though.

If you haven’t gained weight, have you lost a bit of muscle and gained water instead due to the salet content of your food? Water is bulkier, so you will look larger even if you weigh the same. Case in point… I was a UK 6 (US 2) at 8st (112lb) and also at 9 1/2 st (133lb). The difference was the muscle I was packing!
Cut salt, sugar and processed foods. Drink water. If it is water weight, you should lose it within 4-5 days that way.

Good luck, I am sure you will be fine and fit in your dress.
Totally agree to avoid bread, and just drink water 🙂

I was getting my dress taken in and out the week leading to my wedding. One day it was falli down, next I couldn’t do it up. Is the weather and temperature hot and cold where you are? When it was hot I couldn’t fit into my dress but cool weather it was fine if not a little loose… Just an idea

Girllll…I swear I fluctuate litterally 2 sometimes 3 inches in my waist depending on my hormones and what iv’e been eating….
you could probably sit in the sauna and then that dress would zip right up…don’t worry about it, just stay away from the salt.

@Wishing0nStars: This sounds really weird and probably is Too Much Information, but I get very bloated a few days before my period comes and I actually wear a bigger bra and my jeans fit a little more snug for those couple of days…I don’t know if that’s how it is with you, but if it is, then I wouldn’t worry about the dress not fitting yesterday!

Thanks so much everyone!
You all made me feel a bit better <3
@WYAtocha: That could possibly be it. My “friend” did just leave like the day before my fitting. I may just be a little bloated. Hopefully thats all it is.
Still just going to try and watch more what I eat and use my mini stepper more.
Better safe than sorry.
I already always drink water. I only drink soda when I go out to eat which isnt often. So I dont have to worry about that.
