@mrsk2b:

It will be fine, I promise. And for any extra inches there is always Spanx. 🙂

Nods – I’m investing in a pair, for under my mermaid to hide any residual bumps and lumps.

Omg I cried on and off for days with the same fears. I bought my dress way in advance and fluctuated over 50 pounds up and down. I walked into my fitting and I thought it would be 2 inches too small and it fit like a glove (a small hem the straps brought up and an amazing bustle and thats it). Dont stress just let it happen.

@mrsk2b: 

I’m also having my first fitting this week so I have lots of nerves too. I sympathise with your situation. I’m the same size I was when I ordered the dress, but have nightmares it won’t fit, or that I’ll look awful in it. When I bought the dress the sample was a number of sizes too big, so I’m nervous what it will be like when it is so fitted! I bought some spanx yesterday!

Keep us updated on how it goes. I’m sure you will be fine!

How long before the wedding do you think you should have your first fitting? I have my dress and tried it on when it came in. I haven’t lost any weight but it felt sooo huge on me when I tried it! I’m quite nervous that they won’t be able to take it in enough! I Am really nervous about all of this, just like you! I need a hem, a lot taken in, (no cups as I’m doing a longline), and some of the skirt removed. I am pretty small and am really scared that I’m going to look like I’ve been eaten by a white dress!

My seemstress usually requires 3 months however she got mine done within the week (I prebooked her time) since I was only in town for 10 days. I know the feeling of all you can do is eat… maybe a big bag of baby carrots would be a good thing to keep at your side.
