exercise and eat right. Drink plenty of water throughout the day and you will be surprised what a difference it will make. You could also try some heavy duty SPANX

Definitely take it to a seamstress – she may not be able to let it out, but it sounds like it zips up to a good point and if everything else fits right, she may be able to create a sort of v at the back from the top of the dress down to the point it zips to (if that makes sense). And then it will look like it was meant to be that way anyway!

Take it to a seamstress before you do anything drastic.  I think if you’re that small already, you’re not going to be able to lose that much weight.

Also, if it’s tight in the chest area, you might be able to get a certain bra to help it to fit.

Agree. I would maybe try what stlginkgo said but if your that small you probably do not need to loose any weight; and it will be hard to do that easily. If it fits perfectly everywhere except the vary top i’m sure there is definatly something a seamstress could do. If nothing small you could always add a lace back instead of the zipper. That alwasy makes the top bigger. Definatly Do-able. Any seamstress should figure something out for you.

Oo i doubt you have much weight to lose

Take it to a seamstress. if they can’t let it out, maybe they can turn the dress into a scoop back so that it zips up only halfway up your back but then is open and gorgeous? oooo so pretty! I love dramatic, low backs!

That’s a great idea, ejs!

I agree with the other ladies. Go to a seamstress if they can’t fix it I am sure they can alter it to your body into another design as ejs mentioned. All is not lost.

PS: do you have a pic of the dress?

If it zips up that far, I agree with everyone else that a seamstress will be able to make it work for you!  I mean, if the dress wasn’t making it up past your hips or something, that would be a different story   Wink

If it’s just the chest area that’s too tight, consider having a “V” cut in the back.  I believe Mrs. Cherry Pie did that in order to make some more room and it looked great!

Oh lawd, that is a sucky situation, especially since you’re already so teeny! I also suggest going to the seamstress first. Cross fingers, say prayers, and wear some spanx! :p
