- Wedding: March 2010
I have a bit of a dress dilemma. I have a year to plan the wedding so I’m not quite at the trying-on-dresses stage, but I’ve been browsing online (of course) and have noticed that my measurements do NOT match up with what the wedding dress world says they should be.
I’ve taken my measurements for the past five years, and I’ve ranged from 30 pounds below my current weight to 30 pounds above my current weight, and no matter how much I weigh, the difference between my waist and hips is always about 6.5 inches. According to the size charts I’ve seen…the difference should be about 11.5. What?!! So I’m two sizes larger in the waist than the hips…not ideal for a wedding dress situation. I’m on a bit of a budget so getting my dress custom-made is out of the question (unless someone knows someone who does it cheaply!).
Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do about it? I’m hoping I’m not the only one who has these particular dimensions!
