I went for my dress fitting yesterday. So bad.
The wedding gown I bought 14 months ago was a size too small. Obviously, I've gained weight. Only about 9 pounds, so it's not a "ton" of weight per say. But enough that my dress was so tight the lady couldn't even zip it up completely and I felt so horrible standing there and having her put pins everywhere it needed to be let out. And they were everywhere.
I was lucky enough that I was able to exchange it at no cost for the next size up and save myself a TON of money in alterations; I also had to exchange my petticoat and my bustier for larger sizes as well. It was embarrassing, but it had to be done. I'm very realistic about my body.
So what am I doing about this? I've started exercising. I've actually been working out for the last few days, my diet has improved... it's not just about the dress. It's not just for the wedding. I've been lazy and complacent lately. And ain't nobody got tiiiiiime to get back to where I was three and a half years ago!
So at the next fitting (May 9th)... I might have to have it taken in.
A girl can dream!
Oh, and here's a sneak peak of the dress (this is the smaller one, obviously):
