So what happens if you lose 20 lbs in the interim? (God, I hope so lol)
How soon do I need to go (or am I behind on this already :-) ?
Hey! I already bought mine... went to Mockingbird Bridal, Terry Costa (if you are bottom heavy I suggest not looking there. Their sample sizes only go up to a size 8 which street size is like a 6) and Lewisville Bridal.
Mockingbird was OK. I felt rushed even with an appointment (2 hours were alloted). Terry Costa haha I have hips so I couldn't fit into any of their dresses. So I ended up at Lewisville Bridal. LOVE THEM! Talk about southern hospitality. I'm telling you they have 500+ dresses in all sizes from 0-20. Street size I'm a 10 so that was great for me.
Undergarments, unless you are bashful, don't wear a thong as they are in the room with you helping you with your dress. And if they can't lace up your dress all the way, when you go out in the open to show your family/friends, everyone else gets to see you butt too LOL. I just wore those cheeky panties... white of course. The bridal stores have sample strapless corset bras for you.
I have lost 12 pounds already. I was told a seamstress can take in a dress 2 sizes usually no problem.
My dress took 3 months to come but it all depends on the designer and I got in RIGHT before the big bridal season rush.
