I just went in for my final fitting and seamstress asks me “Did you change your weight?” I told her no, and she asks “Did you try???” I wanted to leave my final fitting feeling super confident and happy, but now I”m just feeling torn down. My wedding is in two weeks, fittings are done. It’s way too late to drop a bunch of weight now.
anyone have similar experiences? Looking for some positivity.
ETA: blurry/bad lighting picture from today. I’m not thin but I don’t think I would look at myself and immediately think “needs to lose weight”

Gosh, how rude! I think the dress fits great! I wouldn’t worry about her comments and you’ll forget all about them when people tell you how beautiful you look on your wedding day!!

Um, what?! First off that is sooo rude. Was she trying to get more alterations in or something?
You look really good, the dress fiits like a dream, and I would not say you need to lose weight. Some people.

Agreed. You look beautiful! I would ignore and share bad reviews online to steer other brides away! Don’t let someone else’s ignorance shake your confidence! You look amazing.

Lady, you look beautiful in that dress! I had similiar comments from my seamstress at my last fitting. She went so far as to “suggest” that I only eat salad and drink water for the following 3 weeks. I was absolutely devastated!
Don’t let her spoil these next two weeks for you with such rude comments. You are beautiful, it fits beautifully, and your future husband won’t be able to take his eyes off you.

Was she asking not to accuse you of weighting too much, but to make sure you won’t drop any weight between your fitting and your wedding? Not that I’m trying to excuse any rudeness, but it could’ve been accidental rudeness, rather than intended rudeness.

Ridiculous. You don’t remotely need to lose weight and I hate that people assume every bride should. I went with my future SIL to her last fitting and her seamstress actually told her to stop losing weight. That made more sense to me, in a way, because she had the dress altered to her perfectly and to lose any more weight would have thrown that off.

Maybe she’s used to having to make major adjustments for the last fitting? I don’t know, I just can’t imagine any other reason why she would say that, because you look amazing in that dress!!!

Don’t waste another moment thinking on it. You look beautiful!

This is what it sounds like to me, as well. It’s probably a default question, and it just came out of her mouth in the worst possible way.
You look awesome, don’t let it get you down.

My goodness the woman ( I’m assumng it’s a woman) needs her eyes checked. You look perfect. Not underweight, not overweight. Ideal weight I’d say.
Go forth and radiate on your day and foget the silly, unfounded comment.

You’re not stick skinny, but I actually do think you’re on the thin side. Not that it matters anyway! You don’t look at all heavy, you look fantastic, that dress looks fantastic. It’s also a forgiving style even if you did somehow gain weight in the next two weeks. And hell, even if you were way overweight, you would still deserve to look and feel amazing on your wedding day. In no scenario is what she said even remotely acceptable! I’m so sorry. Pay no attention to her, you’re going to look dazzling, darling! 🙂
