When we bought my wedding dress several months ago – it fit like a glove. It was just a miraculously perfect fit. Like all other brides, I’ve been scared to death that I’ve put on weight since its purchase, so I combat this by going to the gym as often as I can, but I still worry.
I was feeling really good about the whole gym thing recently so I decided to try on my wedding dress this past Saturday night. My silent expectation was that it would be so loose that it would need to be altered A LOT and not just in the chest area as we expected (it’s slightly too big there).
The damn thing still fit like a glove – albeit a less tight glove, but a glove none the less.
So why am I disappointed?
I will tell you why! I’ve been busting my booty at the gym religiously for weeks and although I have noticed my endurance is better and I’ve lost weight – I’ve apparently also been building muscle, which is a great thing, but still . . . *sigh*
Another positive is that it won’t cost as much to have to ONLY alter the bust portion, right? If it were super loose and had to be altered greatly in the bodice and waist, which would possibly cost a lot. Can you tell I’m really trying to be POSITIVE?
Still. I know it’s petulant of me, but I really did want one of those, “Holy cow!” moments where I slipped on this beautiful piece of dress art and was ecstatic at how loose it was, but alas, no such luck for me at this stage. Blame it on the freshman twenty, but we are truly fat, dumb and happy right now and excited about our new life together.
