- Wedding: November 2013
OK, so back in April I ordered my dress (Casablanca B035), and because I was apparently “in-between sizes”, and I told the salesgirl that I’d like to lose 10 lbs for the wedding, we ordered the dress in the smaller size. Well, the dress came in at the end of August, and lo and behold… I had GAINED 8 lbs!!!! Kill me!! I felt (and looked) like a sausage in my dress:
You can see my bellybutton straining to be released, and the crease of the dress across my waist indicates that it’s way too small. The salesgirl could barely get the zipper up. This is the most unforgiving dress ever, so I was really upset with myself. I went through dress regret, and went through anger about why I was allowed to order a smaller size… all that good stuff. And then I just resolved to lose the weight.
Since that first time I tried on my dress, I have lost 14 lbs. I tried on my dress again yesterday for a second time, and it was THE best feeling in the world. The dress is actually a little too big now, and will have to be taken in. I lost most of my weight in my boobage area, so the top will definitely have to be fixed. Once they take the top in, it will prevent the top from sagging down, but you get the gist:
Thanks for listening – I just wanted to share my story with everyone because I’m so happy!
