    Wedding dress too small... do I buy a back up?

    So I stupidly bought my wedding dress over a year ago, in a size smaller than I am as I was convinced I could lose the weight. Little did I know that I’d be put on 3 types of medication that cause weight gain. To counteract this I signed up with a Personal Trainer and have been going to the gym 6 days a week. Alas, it has not worked and in my first fitting today, they couldn’t get the dress over my hips. The shop attendants were very kind and said they would change the back from a zip to a corset back and that they’ll let out the seams. Will that be enough? I’m absolutely panicking and have booked in to try some sale dresses to have as a backup. Anyone been through this?

    First of all, DONT PANIC! I know it probably doesnt feel this way at the moment, but everything will be fine!!

    I think you should try the shop attendants advise first and add in a corset back, you'll be able to add a good few inches by doing that.

    If that doesnt work then yes, get a back up dress. Worst case scenario.. You where the backup dress on the day and stick the smaller dress on Ebay or Stillwhite. 😊

    Hi 

    I was in the same situation  as you, I'm getting married  in 31 days and can now get into my dress.  It took hard work, exercise  and strict diet.

    But getting  married to my h2b was all worth it.

    Keep going to the gym and diet
