I'll be a bridesmaid in my cousins wedding this Saturday, and yes my dress is too big.....actually huge. I should be happy right?
well why am i not? >
We ordered them back in Janurary and since then ive lost about 25lbs more or less. I did not think it would make THAT much of a diffrence because when i look in the mirror yeah i see myself smaller but I still see the same body shape i had.
So I went to pick it up and tried it on at the store and since it is a long "mermaid" dress with a corset style closing in the back we didnt bother lacing it up all the way because of what a pain in the butt it is to do it. I noticed it being too long so last week i took it in to get it altered. My mom helped me lace it up and i just hear her say "Mayra! You lost so much weight! Wow you lost too much weight.."
When it was laced up, there was no corset to be seen, the laces basically closed everything up and it was TOO big even then. In the hip/bum area its supposed to be tight too and it was wayy too loose. The seamstress has to take it in about 3 inches on each side to make the dress "tighter" to show off the corset and make it more 'flattering' which i agree. She basically said i needed a dress 2 or 3 sizes smaller and since i will be wearing it this week there's no way to get another one, not to mention it cost $240 -____-
Ugh wow really? I am proud of myself and happy for losing this much but this made me feel kind of mad at myself because i should have started losing the weight BEFORE we got the dress fitting, then i wouldn't have to be dealing with a big unflattering dress. I know, at least this is better than dealing with a dress too small. This may sound petty to some of you so i apologize but i just needed to vent to someone >.<
