I one time see advice on aome articles on the internet about buying the wedding dress. She says that buy the dress on your current size. Also, it is a much easier alteration to reduce the size of the dress than making it larger (they have no extra material to do it). My seamstress says that the maximum dress size you can reduce is 2 (eg: 10->6, or 14->10), so this may give you some pictures of what can be done to your dress

What is “quite a bit of weight”??

You dont need to lose a whole lot, geesh! I think in 7/8 months realistically someone could lose 60 lbs! But you dont need to lose that lol

You look great!And the dress is really pretty

Dress is amazing on you. It’s really flattering how it draws the eye into the waist.   I’m a big fan of lace so pretty!

In terms of what size to buy and weight loss- have you had success losing weight before?  be realistic with yourself. If you have the time, money and devotion to focus on losing weight, then buying a dress a size or two smaller could be good motivation. If you tend to fall off the wagon (like me!) then save yourself the stress/pressure- it would be awful not being able to fit your dress.

Your dress is gorgeous and you look stunning. I second @kjo:  “What is “quite a bit if weight?

I am starting a healthy eating and exercising plan once I get back from holiday (on the 4th) so I would be more then happy to be a weight loss buddy, if you think that would help motivate you.

(Who is you dress by?)
