I recently purchased my bridal gown for my August 9th wedding! Its an off the rack sample dress, strapless satin a-line with an asymmetrically draped bodice and corset boning/corset closure.
Here's the problem: I'm a street size 10. The dress is a size 14 and even though dresses run small it was definitely too big and will need to be taken in between 1 & 2 sizes as is (I'm wearing lots of clamps in the picture). This didn't raise any alarm bells for staff at the bridal shop. I didn't think about the additional weight I would like to lose though... I am 5'6" between 145-150 pounds, hoping to drop down to 130 which could drop another 2 sizes.
Do you think this dress will be able to be altered 3-4 sizes? It does have corset boning and a corset laced back. Anyone else end up altering in this much or more without problems??
