Getting in Shape

Dress Size and Weight Loss

Hi! I ordered a ballgown and am interested in toning up and losing a few pounds. I really don't want to have to get the dress altered!
The actually measurements for a size 4 are 34 bust, 26 waist, 36 hips. I am measuring  at about a 34.5, 26, 40. Since it is a ballgown, I can lose from my hips (or gain, which I don't want to do!!) and it will still fit. I guess my question, which has been difficult to get out!, I have ribs.... they won't shrink, how will it work for me to lose weight? Will my measurements for my waist go down? or will they stay similar because of ribs/bones, etc.? I'm not worried about boobs because I can always stuff with cutlets ;-)
Hope this makes sense.
