Tried on my reception dress after weight loss

I bought my reception dress online from AliExpress for $200 and the first time I tried it on it was really tight. I knew I would lose weight so I had ordered it a size smaller than my wedding dress (which was ordered a size bigger to accommodate the boobies). I personally don鈥檛 think my boobs are that big and thought it was ridiculous they ordered a size bigger. I had my ceremony dress fitting last week and Of course it was huge on top and now I have to get it altered. Anyway this dress in the pictures fits almost perfectly I have some under arm fat to work off but other than that I think it was the right move to order a size smaller! Also I鈥檓 amazed how much it matches my ceremony dress that was $3000 more馃樁 (last pic is ceremony dress).

    I have 5 months until I get married! I love it, but it does still feel a tad tight so a few more inches should do it. Thank you for the kind words!

    I eat a lot better than I used to. A lot of salads and fruit smoothies. I eat smaller portions so my stomach has shrunk and I get fuller faster. I barely work out. Just some body weight stuff whenever I鈥檓 in the mood lol.

    Wow both of your dresses look great and congrats on the weight loss! You totally can't tell you got your reception dress for such a steal, it is totally comparable to the $3,000 one Smiley smile

    Nell this is so gorgeous!!! I remember seeing the post about your ceremony dress! I love that they complement each other and are similar in style. The fact that you got this on Aliexpress is so awesome and you can't beat that price.

    Looks beautiful!!! I love them both and perfect match love!! How long did it take for you to receive your gown from Ali express? I was so scared to order from them, but they are very affordable for gowns.

    I think it was called Fanovias. I used to have the info but I deleted it about a month ago since I鈥檓 all married off now. Hope this helps you though!
