Ok, the dress fits… just not as well as it originally did. I’ve been trying several different birth control methods (in preparation for our ‘first time’ on our wedding night — WHOLE other topic!) and that, plus comfort food, caused me to gain a little weight. It’s all in my boobs… I’m not complaining, they look great, but now my dress doesn’t fit right.
My dress has a beautiful open back with two straps (stock photo included) that snap closed. BUT NOW whenever I take a deep breath in, or lean down, or hug someone, the two back straps pop open.
The way I see it I have two options… be really aware of my movements and breathing; try not to inhale deeply or do anything that causes my torso to expand beyond what the dress can handle. OR, option two, sew myself into the dress =p It would be tight and a little uncomfortable, but at least I wouldn’t be worrying the whole day.
What do you think? Thanks for your help!

@Benni: i think you should definitely pin/sew it. you dont’ want it to pop open and in your excitement and joy, i doubt you want to be worrying about it! congrats on your big day and good luck : )

I remember my sister’s prom dress had some issue staying shut at the top so my mom stitched it up and sewed her in. I say do it!

Eek! I say sew. You will have a million other things to think about aside from exactly how you are moving your body around. Plus, that will guarantee that you don’t have to worry about it day of!

I agree with @Gemstone: “SEW, don’t SHOW!” 🙂

@mu_t: +1. You will have enough to worry about on your big day. You don’t need to also worry about flashing everyone! Sew yourself into that baby and have a great time!

@Benni: The best option is to sew yourself in.
That being said, your husband is going to have a GREAT story about how he had to literally rip the sewn-on wedding dress off your body on your wedding night!

@Benni: Is that a David’s Bridal dress? I know this would be cutting it really close but you could go to your nearest DB and switch the dress for a bigger size … that’s what I would do.

Can you pop into a sauna for a while? It will just be water weight, but if it is tomorrow – maybe it helps?

Another option: attach some small ribbon/straps to the edges of the back parts, and tie them together, Maje a pretty little bow or knot (no need for long bows or whate er. Just doble knot it, then a fake bow. That way youre neither sewn is nor left woth nothing.
you could even do this on the inside tying one strap end to somewhere in the inside side seam of the other side, and then have te other side over the top with the standard snap. You’d never see the tie strap, and still wouldnt be sewn in.

@Benni: I would get sewn in just so I wouldn’t have to worry about it popping open.
