Beginner August 2022

Will it fit??

My wedding dress is currently being altered, but I’ve gained 5 lbs since the tailor fit me for it. My wedding is in August but I’m worried my weight will keep going up and my dress won’t fit (my thyroid is wonky and I think is causing me to gain. I was hoping to lose 5 lbs, not gain any) Smiley sad

    This is very dress specific. I lost over 15 lbs and my dress still fit, but it was because of the inside straps that could tighten. If you didn’t have room to let it out originally or if it was originally right, I would ask the trailer now.

    August is about 3 months away, which is plenty of time to shed the extra 5 lbs. And depending on the cut of the dress and where you're carrying the extra weight, it may not even make a difference in the first place. I'd see if you could try on the dress and discern whether it's an issue or not.

    It depends on the dress and your body. 5lbs usually isnt enough to change your dress size. One of my friends lost 30 lbs before her wedding and because her dress was a corset back and she lost most of it in her legs and lower stomach her dress still fit.

    It depends on the dress. I know for my I need to lose a lot of weight to fluctuate sizes. I lost 25 pounds and only went down a pant size and a half so 5 pounds wouldn’t matter at all to me but I guess it would depend on your dress. I think it’ll be fine
