Anytime I’ve tried on a wedding dress, it’s always gone over my head. Even the ones that were a bigger size (I’m a 4). A size 2 is not huge and fat by any means. I also have a booty, so don’t feel bad!

Yeah I’ve never tried a dress on that didn’t go over my head.  I’ve got a booty but it looks GOOD.  Don’t be self conscious.  I’m sure you look amazing, and everyone else will think the same thing!

I’m sure you look amazing and sounds like u are gonna be a knock out in your dress…. A lot of the ones I tried went over my head too! Sounds like you are already tiny and curves….. Great combo!! I wouldn’t try to diet then you’ll have to worry about last min alterations…. Just rem even if it messes up the hair a bit going over the head it can always be fixed….. Have u posted pics in your dress yet?

It’s a beautiful dress! Maybe a seamstress knows a trick to open it just a little bit more with one more layer of corset?

You want that style to fit your curves. I think that style is one that you would need to go over your head.

When I tried on dresses, they all went over my head. For your hair and makeup, have two or three people hold the dress open as wide as possible, then “Superman” into it. Make sure your arms are protecting your head from hitting the dress. It should be fine, and I’m sure you look fantastic in the dress!

I’m very tiny (size 0) and I always always always have this problem. My butt is the biggest part of my body too. As long as you guys go slow putting in on for your wedding, it won’t be a problem ๐Ÿ™‚

I think that may be a problem related to corset dresses – because the bottom of the corset area is sewn with heavy stitching and not as adjustable. My daughter is very tiny – and when she went for her final dress fitting they had to get it on over her head too. The important thing is: you got it on!! ๐Ÿ™‚

@CherryHills:  I think you’re right.  I’m pretty sure it’s the corset back.  Zippered dresses open up further down the back than a corset would, allowing more accommodation for the hips/backside.

It zips and protects your hair and makeup for putting clothes on over your head. My mom has one (she calls it her “beekeeper”) that she uses every single day.

I was thinking of getting one, too.

And, I have to add: you are TINY. Itty bitty. A size 2? To be fat you’d have to be 3 feet tall.

All of the wedding dresses I put on went over my head!

On my wedding day it was fine, my girls opened upp the corset and held the skirt open as I dove in! Didnt effect my hair at all.
