    I’m soooo glad to hear a success story about this!  I really, really struggled with what to do about my dress order.  If I ordered the dress according to my largest measurement, it was going to be ELEVEN inches too big in the bust, and with a sweetheart neckline / scallop detail I was absolutely terrified that the dress would be ruined after alterations.  I had to decide which would worry me more – worrying about a large alteration OR worrying about staying focused with nutrition and exercise to achieve my goals.  In the end, I decided facing a huge alteration and worrying about the structural integrity of my dress was MORE of a worry to me.  I will use your post as inspiration – it is a DRASTIC before and after.

    Do you happen to know how many inches you lost?  I have to lose 5 inches off my hips for the dress to fit.  πŸ™‚

    I did the opposite and ordered mine too big. Well, it was the only size I could get on short notice and it was only one size too big…but it’s been a nightmare. I should have just asked if I could buy the sample instead!

    Beautiful!!!! I think so many salons stress not to order smaller because SO many people don’t lose the weight they intend to.

    I ordered my dress the size I was when I bought it (an 8) and I’ve lost 12 lbs. So I’m now concerned it’ll be too big and HOPING they can make alterations that won’t lose the shape of the dress.

    You seriously look great and your gown is gorgeous!

    Good for you! I found that some people just like to be downers, You should always do what feels right for you. πŸ™‚ I was a street size 8 when I ordered mine. I tried on a 12 and it fit perfectly so I ordered a 10 because I wanted to lose a few pounds and it fit perfectly when I got it πŸ™‚
    I absolutely love the back on your dress!
