Hi Bees! I have good news and bad news and it makes me frustrated. Good news is since my Fiance and I postponed our wedding I have lost weight! ALOT OF WEIGHT. So much weight now that I will lose the integrity of my dress if its taken in to my current size. The bad news is that I have to sell my dream dress and find another. I really dont want to look for another dress but I have no choice. My dream dress is a gorgeous dress from Mori Lees plus sized selection, so any other dress wont be exactly like that is is likely to cost me much more. Just when we’d decided to downsize everything to reduce costs. Lose amazing amount of weight only to lose dream dress.

@FutureMrsEAG: Please don’t take this the wrong way…
But are you going to get stressed and put it back on when you get closer to the new date and thus need your dress still?
I’m not sure the reasons for the loss (working really hard or simply lack of stress?) So I appologize if you’ve worked your buns off (literally)
And a solution if you’re going to stay around your new weight… why not order the same dress just not plus sized? or find a 2nd hand one of the same style?? Or even the sample you tried on in store if it was smaller than the one you ordered??

No, the weightloss was totally purposeful. Actually started because I was stressingl and putting weight on, so when I turned it around I was just on a mission. Mori Lee has some similar dresses in regular sizes, just not one exactly like this one.

@FutureMrsEAG: is there really no possible way to have it altered? Did a seamstress tell you it can’t be done without completely changing the dress?
Maybe you can still wear the dress even if it doesn’t look exactly like it does right now. I went back and looked at your dress and I honestly think it can be altered. They might have to remove the beading on the side and bust and re-do it but I still think it can be done. Then again, I’m not a seamstress so this could just be me being optimistic.

@FutureMrsEAG: I had a major weight loss issue and the bridal shop was able to swap the dress out for me (for a smaller size). I’d say it’s worth a call and plea… and, if that doesn’t work, I’d hunt down a few reputable seamstresses and see if they can work their magic on it. You never know! And, congrats with the weight loss!

can you have the other mori lee ones altered by the manufacturer to be more similar to yours?
