It doesn’t look too tight! Is the sample size on sale or something?

I always think its smart to leave a little wiggle room incase your body goes through some changes from now until the wedding. Some women loose, some gain.

Honestly, it looks like right at the top where it meets your skin it is a bit tight. If it were me, I would probably go up one size and get it taken in where you need it. That will give you a little room too, just in case you gain anything between now and the wedding.

I know I had every intention of losing weight before the wedding, but with all the stress and lack of time, the opposite happened. Don’t add more stress to yourself about fitting into a dress that’s already a bit snug.

I think it looks fine but your arms are not in their normal position. I think you may have a bit of armpit fat from it being too tight if you put your arms down. If that is not the situation, then I would go with this size as it looksl ike it fits you everywhererelse as you mentioned. However, you may be onto something when you try to consider the stretching. I bought a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress from DB which was strapless A-line and the 10 I tried on fit perfectly (I even tried the 12 but it literally fell down). When mine arrived a couple of months later, I struggled to get it zipped and it was way tighter on top. Since none of my normal clothes felt tighter in that time, I figured the samples must have been stretched from being tried on frequently. Sicne you have some time, maybe you can wait about 3 months and try it on again.

I would go w/ a size 8.  Samples do get stretched out over time.   Its easier to have your seamstree take it in then take it out.

@slicey19: I agree with this. It looks only a tiny bit tight, but I think with your arms down it would be noticeable. I’d go with the 8 since yes, sample gowns do get stretched out, and if you gain any weight before the wedding (I’m a stress eater… it will take a lot of will power not to for me lol) it may not fit.
