Cuteboy2me: 2nd First Fitting

So, today I met with my new seamstress. 


I was a nervous wreck. I was all sweaty palmed and racing heart. Scared to death would be the best description of how I felt walking in that bridal salon. 


I put my dress on and I could already feel a difference.  As the attendant was tying the corset, I could feel my heart racing right out of my chest. I felt like I was a cartoon character with my heartbeat visible. 


Out of the change room I come and there is the seamstress looking at me like I'm an nutbar!  I kid you not.  She asks me how much weight I've lost so far (2lbs), and how long it took me to lose 2lbs.  2 weeks.  I was actually down 3.5, but this last week working so much at the part time job, time and the treadmill got away from me.  She told me that since I was able to lose 2lbs in 2 weeks, she isn't going to let my dress out until the end of August in the hope that I can lose a bit more.  She doesn't want to have me lose another 3-5lbs and then the dress fit me properly and this letting out would have all been for not. 


She tells me that the dress is going to be fine on me regardless of how much I lose and her alterations.  I stand there speechless.  I seriously couldn't talk because I was trying so hard to swallow my tears.  I couldn't do it.  I just stood there and cried like a baby.  That poor woman.   She had no idea what she had said to upset me so much.  I didn't tell her the whole story from the previous seamstress, so she thought she had hurt my feelings. 


I tried to the best of my ability to explain that she has given me hope and faith, when just 2 weeks ago I was hopeless. 


I am also not going to be wearing a bra.  Unlike the first seamstress, who said my breast would be, "down to here", this woman said the dress will home them in place and the fit of the dress on my midsection will keep things where they belong. 


Cleaner eating and getting on the treadmill when I can has given me hope. That and a seamstress that is willing to work with a bride to build her up and not tear her down.  


Smiling from the inside today!

I can empathize with you. I had my fitting last week. I looked amazing from the front however, my booty is a bit on the applicious side. The seamstress very sweetly patted my behind saying "we will be able to let this out so you can sit down." I felt frustrated and relived at the same time. After dancing the night away at my Bachy, I got a severe case of plantar fasciitis. It took everything just to be able to walk at work, let alone run after work. Now my FI and I walk for 30+ minutes after dinner, no more alcohol, no more sweets, and no more eating out for three more weeks. We can both do it. Best to luck to you. And you will look amazing at your wedding.

I love you, ladies! 


This has been an eye-opening couple of weeks and a very emotional day for me.  To know I have you all in my corner rooting for me to be successful, is a feeling I can't explain. 


Thank you!

This is so wonderful to hear! I can so relate to what you are going through! I had a wonderful consultant when I went back for my dress fitting because I wasn't going to get my dress. I didn't feel or look like a bride with the bra pushing me up and spilling me over. The consultant suggested I not wear a bra and she was right! I cried tears of joy! So congratulations and I can't wait to see you have your fial fitting!
