the dress I am wearing in this picture is a size 10. It zips most of the way.. aside from about a half inch. I am still loosing weight and have no doubt that I could fit in this dress.

 

HOWEVER (has to be one doesn't there?!) the boob area of the dress doesn't fit me very well. For once in my life my boobs are too big for something! The seamstress thinks I should order a size up because the bust area will be larger. However, it's pretty much a given that the rest of the dress is going to be too big.

 

She said she can enhance the bust area of the size 10 if I decide that route, or take in the size 12.

 

So which do you think is a better option? Increasing the bust area of the size 10, would be about 50 bucks. But i'm not sure how much it would cost to take in the entire dress if i get a size 12. But then again, I would think it would be easier to take in the 12, than change the entire top of the 10.

 

What would you do?

Hhmmm ... I don't have a boob issue (well I do have a LACK of boobs issue) ...

 

The bust is the only place my dress is too big. If she can enhance that for you, and it fits well everywhere, I'd go with the 10.

oooh tara, first i LOVE that dress on you. second, i would order the 10 if i were you, the alterations to take a 12 in everywhere versus letting the bust out in the 10 are going to be expensive. and if you lose more weight, then your boobs will probably get a bit smaller and fit into the 10 anyway. when i lose weight, my boobs are the first thing to go haha.

That's a tough one. I almost think it would be easier to alter the 12. Only because it seems like it would be easier to alter the waist and hips than the boob area, does that make sense? the boob area seems more difficult.

i should have specified more about the boob issue. My issue is that the boob area doens't cover as much as I'd like it too. It's a sweetheart neckline, and it is too low, so really she'd be adding fabric and lace to the top, to make the neckline higher to cover the girls better..... I'm not really a boob showing kind of gal, and def. don't want them out on my wedding day rolleyes.gif

 

does that change your opinions at all?

I agree with a 10. Only because getting the entire rest of the dress altered could make it fit differently and you definetly dont want that. I say just fix the boobie part and stick with a 10.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
