Freaking - What Size Dress???

Recommended Posts

so i ordered my wedding dress yesterday. i was so excited! now i'm a bit stressed out and hoping someone can put my mind at ease...

 

my bridal shop didn't have my mori lee dress (actually no shop in a 100 mi radius has a sample of my dress...i found it when shopping up in CT) so they had to measure me to figure out what size to order. my measurements were just a mite smaller than the size 8. the shop owner thought i looked closer to a 6 so she put me in a mori lee size 6 dress (not mine) and it was no problem to zipper up, but was a bit snug in the middle. i plan to lose a bit of weight in the next 3 months (7 mos until my wedding) so the shop owner said we should go ahead and order the dress in a size 6, so we did.

 

well, today i was at a shower and told the girls about my dress ordering experience and they all made me really nervous about ordering the size that wasn't a perfect yet. i would understand if i was already very fit and it'd be hard to lose more weight, but i'm not in the best shape - even at a size 6 I have plenty of extra padding everywhere!

 

i know myself so I don't think i'll have any problem losing a few pounds (i have me some pretty damn good willpower when its necessary) and also figure the dress can be let out an inch or two if worse comes to worse...am I wronghuh.gif should i be freaking out about thishuh.gif

 

Updated: sorry, i'm a dummy and forgot to give the link to the dress since i know you'll want to see it!

Very pretty dress!! You will be fine and if the shop owner said to order that size..seems as she would know. You have plenty of time to work on fitting into it. I have confidence in you!!

No I think you did the right thing, I did the opposite and now wish I hadn't in case I can't get it altered!

 

A little bit tight is better than 2 big when you want to lose weight I think

Well if the owner measured you properly & if you know that you are going to lose some weight in the next few months, then why worry? When your dress comes in, and you have your appt for the fitting, you'll be able to see how it fits at that point. So to me there's reallly no reason to stress out about it now. I say relax & be happy that you have ordered your dress!

I think you did the right thing. One of my friends tried on her dress and the sample size fit her like a glove. The shop owner tried to talk her into what her measurements said she was (a few sizes larger than the sample she tried on), but she went against her reco and ordered the sample size. When it came in it fit her perfect!

I think you will be A-OK on this one wink.gif

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • 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.
