So I went for my first dress fitting today. I was so happy when I put it on and saw the way it looked. I've lost 15 lbs and ordered the dress a size smaller than what I was wearing at that time and the same size as I had on when I purchased the dress. I was soo happy when I could step into it and pull it up, I couldn't do that before. I came out of the dressing room and was so excited and started taking some pictures and then the seamstress showed up. In a matter of minutes she deflated the high I was on. She proceeded to tell me that the dress is too small, the underlay is bunching too much at my hips/waist. She was adamant that I either let it out or come back in two weeks but that I need to lose another 10 lbs in order for the dress to fit properly. I was so devastated and upset that I left and made an appointment to come back in two weeks. And I came home to cry to my fiance. So I need to know what you think. And please be honest. I'm going to continue doing what I have been with my diet and exercise but I don't think it will be feasible for me to lose 10 lbs in two weeks. And I don't know if its really necessary. side note: don't mind the cap sleeves, I'm going to have them shortened to sleeves instead.
Its hard to tell in the photos. The dress looks beautiful on you. I'd say do what you can in the next two weeks... but I don't think 10lbs is feasible in 2 weeks time... its really only healthy to lose 1-2lbs per week... and even if you do, will it be feasible to keep it off until the wedding? So do your best in the next two weeks and if it needs to be let out, its not that big of a deal, you want the dress to look perfect on you and I am sure that's what the seamstress wants too, I am sure she didn't mean to hurt your feelings, her job is make the dress fit the best possible and make you look the best possible. She is the professional, I'd trust her.
