In preparation for my October 2015 wedding, I am losing weight! I'm down about 30lbs since April 2014, with my final goal being 110lbs down. As such, I've made a rule for myself that I will NOT try on dresses until I've lost at least 70lbs (by my current projections, this will be between January-March 2015).
My question is this: Is that enough weight to try on dresses? I ask because apparently they can only take in/let out dresses to make up for about 30lbs in either direction. So if I get a dress 70lbs down, will they be able to alter it enough for the 30-40lbs I intend to lose during 2015? Also, I know that I should NEVER buy clothes for the weight I want to be, but should buy clothes for the weight I am. But I WILL get this weight off, particularly by the time I'm 70lbs down I think I'll have proven that I can drop another 30-40lbs.
Should I wait longer to try on dresses? Should I have them order a dress on me that's tight when I'm 70lbs down, so that it can be altered more easily down, but also altered up a little if, for whatever reason, I don't lose any more weight?
Thanks so much!
