I ordered my wedding dress July 2020, and it came in December 2020. During that try-on, the top of the dress felt huge on me, and she had to pull it back and up in places to show how it would look once we got the alterations. So I’m already nervous about how that is going to work out.
In addition to that, since January I have been on a fitness journey to try to be healthier and have lost 30 pounds. Obviously I’m still working on losing more but it’s a gradual process.
However, I was just diagnosed with PCOS , and my doctor wants me to make an even stricter lifestyle change and be on medication that, in theory, would make it easier to lose weight. I was already concerned with how my dress would fit as it was already baggy in areas before I started losing weight and now I’m even more worried about how it will be come my first fitting in August. I’m so worried that my dress will be too big that my seamstress woudnt be able to bring it in enough in some areas 😅. Has any other bride dealt with this or is currently worried about the same thing ? I’m just so scared I’ll need to find a new dress last minute ! Ive added a few pictures to show the sleeves, back, and the top, which is why I’m worried it would be difficult to bring in during an alteration.
