Just wanted to brag a little because I was feeling good... I bought my dress back in May, and it didn't even attempt to zip. There were lots of clips, and lots of talk about corsets and things... And then when I went in yesterday for my dress alteration appt, IT ZIPPED ALL THE WAY UP! I haven't been watching myself or doing anything different, and it zipped. I'm a little bit excited about that and just wanted to share! haha! They are still putting a corset in because I couldn't relax my shoulders when it zipped, but still... it's the thought/action that counts!! .
