My dress won't zip!...And I leave in 12 days!

Recommended Posts

OMG!!!!

 

I haven't freaked out yet (I think it was major denial) but it is even smaller!!!!

 

I'm starting to wonder if they got the order confused or something and took the middle in!

 

I took the dress in May 14th and it fit perfectly. I seriously looked like it was made for me.

 

June 3rd I had about a 1 inch gap to get the zipper closed. The seamstress said it would go up, but she really didn't want to chance it and break the zipper, so lose 5 pounds and it would be perfect.

 

Yesterday, June 10, I went in and I now have a 2-3 inch gap! I've lost 7 f-ing pounds! I don't understand what is going on! I haven't lifted any weights (the seamstress told me not to) and I've lost weight. The problem is my breasts are huge! But then again, they aren't any bigger than they were before. My cup size hasn't changed but my band size has-I now hook on the smallest instead of the middle. I called my OBGYN to see if this could be some sort of hormonal thing and she wants me to take a pregnancy test before she'll write me anything. I CANNOT pregnant and if I am, I'm suing her. I'm on a chemically induced menopause so my body doesn't produce estrogen and I don't ovulate. I am not as worried about the dress as I am about potentially being preggo! That ALWAYS makes me freak out. I panic at the slightest pregnancy symptom and always have.

 

So, tonight I go back to see the head seamstress and see what she thinks we can do to fix it. I'll be dammed if I have paid almost $1000 for a dress I cannot wear! And, I can't exchange it for another one because this one has already been hemmed and re-bustled!

maybe your boobs have grown simply because of your menstrual cycle? (or maybe you don't have one becuase of your meds).

 

Can she change the back to take out the zipper and put in a lace up corset instead?

OMG Erin, I am so sorry! Could they possibly change the back to a corset back, so you have a little more "play" room...that way, if you get there and suddenly the dress is huge (because all of your efforts waited to pay off), it can just be tied tighter?

 

Hang in there! I'm sure it will work out, you've got our support!!

Me too Abbie! I mean I want a baby, but we are NOT ready right now! I'm sure some would think it is selfish to say, but that probably would be the worst thing that could happen to us now.

OMG Erin!! With all the weight you lost I thought for sure I would come on this morning and read how fabulous it fit! WTF did they do to your dress!!! So sorry for this added stress! Hope tonights fitting goes well!! I was going to suggest a corset back too so maybe if you like that idea give them a call today as a heads up!

I'm going to run out at lunch and get a home test. Right now I'm waiting for a call back from the Dr. to see if there is anything I can do. I very seriously doubt that I am. Time wise, I would be far enough along I should have noticed by now. I throw up all the time so I can only imagine being preggo. I don't think I'd be lucky enough to escape morning sickness!

 

It's kind of weird and embarassing to have to explain to a nurse that your breasts are enormous and you need a quick fix to make them smaller!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
