I chose my wedding dress back in March. I got measured up, and paid for my dress. It doesn't arrive until a month before my wedding, in September. Mum has been bugging me to go to the shop to tell them i have lost more weight, i told her not to panic, this must happen all the time for them... and they are prepared to do alterations...
So yesterday i went to my dress shop with my Mum and sister. The ladies said they would measure me up and compare measurements from my first fitting... so off we went to the changing room. They were shocked. I was shocked. The numbers were big... it's weird... even though i don't feel the scale has moved much since March (i must check up on how much) the inches must have still been going down. I think my bust went from like 44inches to 31... i don't know... i have totally lost my boobs.
It was the manager who measured me up. She said if i had gone down by 3 dress sizes then my dress would have to be cancelled and re-ordered in my new size. Guess what? That happened. And cost me. Big time. I had to pay over a quarter of what i've paid for my dress already for the cancellation and late ordering. DAMN! They ordered my a size 16/18 first time around, which apparentely was high street size 14-16. I was mega shocked-happy at the time. The dress i tried on in the shop, the sample dress was a size 14, in high street size 12, that was too small on me in March. Yesterday... 2nd of July, that dress was too big for me.
YIKES. I just can't believe this? I am so overwhelmed right now.
The manager ordered me a size 12, highstreet size 10. I don't feel i am actually that size... i think the dresses are a little different... but i never believed i could be a size 14.... and i'm sort of there right now... I never imagined i could do this... I really want to see how far i can actually get.
It's hella good at the same time... but i could really have done with not losing that money.
Also... I got kinda worried about my left breast this week. I noticed on Thursday, when i take my bra off, my boobs drop a lot more now... obviously i have taken a lot of weight out of them and there's some extra skin now... they're not very pretty... anymore... but i noticed, there is a dip at the top/side of my breast. IT's a weird dip... it really goes in. It got me a bit paranoid. I had Stephen take a look and he thought he could feel a lump at first. I don't think there is a lump... they feel pretty normal... just this, concave dip. The other one sort of has the same but not nearly as deep. I told my Mum about it while i was in the changing room in the dress shop... she couldn't get the full effect because i had my bra on. I think i might go to the doctors and get somebody look at it, to put my mind at rest.
So apart from that, i'm making great progress towards my wedding plans. Cake and flowers sorted yesterday. I am eating great, so much fruit lately, although i didn't have any real hard workouts this week... but i'm gonna get back to it, i am. I think i'm just enjoying the break right now.
