What A Boost!!!
I am in a wedding in November, about 8 weeks after the birth of Chunky Monkey I had to go by the dress for the wedding. The bottoms I knew I would be smaller so I bought the smaller size, but the top was very tight in the larger size so I figured It would be fine.
Now this dress is very flattering on me compared to what other dresses would look like. So from the very beginning I have been very happy with my friends choice of bridesmaid dress.
I went today to have the dress altered. The bottom fit great, it's loose around the waist (now mind you this is the smaller size that did not fit at all, there was no way I was zipping it up 1 year ago) but not too loose. Just perfectly comfortable.
However, The top was extremely large. It was falling off of me, so I sent the seamstress to see if they had a smaller size. They did and it fit me absolutely perfect. So now not only is it flattering, but I think I look Amazing, and I will be absolutely happy wearing this dress for an entire evening in front of a crowd. I am in now way shape or form conceited, but I am however very proud of myself because although I have not lost all of the weight I wanted to by this time, I have gone down an entire size if not more than I was before I got pregnant with Chunky Monkey and that alone makes me extremely happy!
I am also happy that this dress is so versatile, that I could wear it again after the wedding to a formal event. :-)
