Getting in Shape
Weight Loss and Dresses
I'm trying to lose about 20-25 lbs before my wedding in 10 months. My fiancé and I have hired a personal trainer, and she thinks that 25 lbs is a realistic goal. My main concern right now is dress shopping while I'm losing weight. I'm very short, so a few pounds makes a big difference as far as my dress size.
I'd ideally like to buy my dress in December or January. Unfortunately, by then I only expect to have lost about 10-15 lbs. I'm worried if I buy a dress then and it's too big when I actually get it, it won't look right because it'll have to be altered too much. Or that I'll lose weight AFTER I get it altered and there's nothing I can do about it. I definitely don't want to order a size down unless I'm VERY close to that size - I'd be too worried that I wouldn't actually lose the weight and the dress wouldn't fit.
Has anyone experienced this? How did you deal with it?
