    Can you post a pic of your dress style?  Is it a tight mermaid, or a ball gown, or A-line, or ?

    You want it to be tight enough so that it’s holding you in properly, and securely :), but you definitely want to breathe!  Definitely necessary to try sitting down, and also lifting up your arms repeatedly to see what it’s like for hugging people.  Sometimes if it’s too tight, it will start pulling improperly and be hard to readjust.

    Mine was definitely not as comfortable as jeans and a t-shirt, but I felt so great in it that day that I didn’t even think about it.  I also freaked out right before, thinking, I never tried to sit down in my dress!  It all worked out though.  Again, it wouldn’t be something you’d wear sitting around.  You may have to sit up a bit straighter than you normally would, but it’ll make you look better anyway.  If you do try to sit down in it before, one warning: don’t sit too long or really bend around because if you have boning in the bodice it may bend out of shape a bit.  Mine was definitely not perfect at the end of the reception. No one will notice but you, but you want it to be perfect when you put it on.
