…to try on my wedding dress on day 1 of my period? It literally would not zip up tonight I am so bloated. I had my final fitting 5 days ago and it fit perfectly. I am so nervous now! It looks like I’ve put on 10 pounds. I know a lot of it is water weight, but it’s still very scary and hugely depressing when the wedding is in 3 weeks. Healthy eating & lots of water drinking for a while. I should be doing this anyway. Does anyone else go up an entire size when on your period??
This was from my first fitting

Your dress is so beautiful!
I tried on my dress right before my period last month and I could barely breathe and my boobs practically spilled out. It was horrible. I haven’t tried my dress on again because of it. Tons of healthy eating and working out so mid-June I can try and fit into it again, but right now I just don’t want to imagine myself in my dress. T_T
I understand your pain. I get really bloated and I get breakouts everywhere! I have a strapless dress, so it’s no bueno.

I went dress shopping on my period. Totally unintentional but it covered me for any unexpected bloat.

You’ll be fine! Better than fine actually! You’ll lose 5 pounds the week of anyway, just because. And yes lots of water and maybe some Scenna tea 🙂 your dress is adorable-I love you in-you look stunning! Is the bow painted on? And the polka-dot tulle is amazing!
Also-are you getting married on June 30th? That’s my 1 year anniversary-I wish I could go back and live it all over again. Have so much fun-it will be the best day of your life!

@BrooklynWife: thank you for the kind words! The bow is sewn on the dress actually. Yes! June 30 🙂

A) I LOVE your dress! That bow/ribbon is just too awesome!
and as far as the dreaded period bloat…. when I’m on mine I gain this hideous potbelly and its like nothing I own fits right or comfortably. I hate the period bloat. HATE.
Wait out the week, try on the dress again, and everything will be right as rain. I plan on trying my dress on one week before the wedding, that way I can judge fit and see if I need to loose or gain any weight.

You’ll be fine! Just make sure to drink lots of water and go light on the slight.
If you’re really in a pinch, this “tea” will help you with bloating –

Thanks, everyone! Lots of healthy eating and water drinking this weekend. Starting with oatmeal & fruit for breakfast

Totally off topic, but is the blue ribbon printed onto your dress or is it a sash? Either way, you and your dress are both adorable!

@Brielle: it is ribbon sewn onto the dress. And thank you!
