I consider myself a plus size gal. I have always been on the bigger side, but a few years ago I was prescribed some medication that made me gain a significant amount of weight in a pretty short amount of time. Now that I no longer need to take that medication, I would like to shed these pounds. For the last few months I have been following weight watchers and walking every morning. I have lost about 40 lbs so far! I would like to lose about 60 more.. however, realistically I am not holding my breath and I will be happy with any amount I lose as long as I stay on this healthy lifestyle path.
Here is my dilemma- it is coming up on the time that I really need to start looking for bridal gowns. I have put off even browsing so that I could try to get to an ideal weight, but that just isn't going to happen, probably not even before my wedding. So my question is, if I order my dress in the next couple of months, do I order it according to my current size?? (I have read that this is the case in other forums). If so, what happens if I continue losing weight, and especially what happens if I lose a significant amount of weight, like 50 more lbs?? Can a dress really be taken in that much??
Someone please explain to me how this is supposed to work. My weight has always been somewhat inconsistant, so I am a little worried that I will order a dress, go down in weight, need to alter it, and hopefully I don't go up in weight at all because I'm not sure what us brides do if that happens in between! But your advice is appreciated
