So i went today to my appointment for the fitting of the gown that i''ll be wearing at the wedding party! We waited until three weeks before the big day (28th of May), because i was dieting and i wanted to do the fitting when i had reached my weight target! Phew...i finally got rid of those extra eight pounds...
Now that i''m done with dieting (i''d like to lose another four pounds but i''m afraid that it will make my face look extremely thin and...old
) i''ve tried the dress on and it is big, so we need to make it tighter around my chest, my hips and waist. They''ll also finish the hem and adjust the straps.
Brrr...i''m nervous...

What do you guys think? Be honest

Looks pretty good! I would maybe have the seamstress add in some cups so you have more support for the girls, instead of taking it in more. I''d be worried that if she took it in too much more you''d be showing more cleavage than you intend. The dress is lovely and very glamorous. A nice contrast with your legal ceremony dress (which is also lovely!). Enjoy!

I can see where it might need to be taken in at the waist, but I can''t see it anywhere else. And why on earth do you need to lose 4 more pounds?!?!?!?!

You look stunning in that dress! Yowzas!

That is one of the most beautiful gowns I have ever seen. It fits you like a glove and you look great.

Wowzers! That dress looks like it was made for you. I really liked it with your hair down. If it were me, I would go without a necklace because it detracts from the beautiful beading around the necklace. I thought it looked nicer without.

Regardless, you are going to look fab!

Agreed. I think you''ve got a lot of pieces that make a statement (dress, necklace, tiara), and it starts to get really crowded and it overwhelms you. You''ve got a gorgeous, slim frame but that means there''s not a lot of real estate between the straps, so there''s almost no space between the necklace and the dress. I''d probably go very simple with accessories, (just a veil and maybe a bracelet) because that dress has a whole lot of presence and bling!

I was thinking the cleavage area needed more support as well. Cups might do it, but I suspect the top being tighened and possible some stick ons might be a good idea as well.

Otherwise a really lovely dress for you.

The dress looks great...the body looks great... you have a nice sized chest for your frame. I agree...I don't think 4 more lbs are needed and that also when someone loses too much weight, their face looks too thin and makes them appear older. Sarah Jessica parker would be so much prettier if she gained 10 lbs.

Unlike others, I do think the top needs to be taken in. Looks like a little too much fabric there.

Nervous? About what?

Both you and the dress look stunning.

Congrats on hitting your weight!

I think the dress looks wonderful on you and i agree with others to drop the necklace (it takes away from the bling on your dress), and to have some cups sewn in to the bust for more support and lift.

I echo the sentiments of the few other ladies that maybe the girls need a little somethin'' somethin.''

Gorgeous dress! You''re stunning, my dear!

Clairitek, Brazen irish, Travelgodess: Indeed the girls need some help in there! When they tried to put padds in the dress, i honestly tell you that for some reason i looked somehow like...Pamela Anderson
And that''s strange and difficult to explain, since the padds that they used weren''t big and my...natural assets aren''t that big either

So the seamstress said that she will put it in at the cups, (because the design allows her to do that) and not from the sides, because i''d end up showing much more than i''d wish too and we don''t want the old fashioned dad and father in law getting any heart attacks at the wedding, do we?
I hope everything turns out well and the dress fits properly on my big day!

Um, where''s that extra four pounds supposed to come from? You look great!
He, he, Monkeyprincess...
Those four pounds are supposed to come from my...buttocks
, but unfortunately when i diet i don''t lose weight only from the problematic area but also from my face, waist, etc, and i don''t want that...

I can see where it might need to be taken in at the waist, but I can''t see it anywhere else. And why on earth do you need to lose 4 more pounds?!?!?!?!

You look stunning in that dress! Yowzas!
ilovesparkles, you can''t see it anywhere else, because the...hundrends of pins that i had on me at the time of the photo shoot weren''t visible in the pictures!!! The dress looks like that after it was put in with pins! Don''t ask what i went through, in order to take the dress off without dropping the pins and without getting stung!!!

Legallyspoiled, princess, hawaiianorangetree: Indeed, i won''t be wearing the necklace with this gown. I just put it on for the fitting, coz it was a part of my bridal jewellry set and the ladies wanted to see how it looked on me! The neckline of my dress is enough...impressive by itself! But i decided to wear the bracelet and the earrings with my tiara! I can''t drop the earrings, i really like them and they''re not huge anyway

Maevie, nkarma: Thank you girls for your polite comments
Indeed, with the mediterranean frame that me and so many other greek girls have, losing a lot of weight sometimes can make your rear view better but your face and other parts of your body look much worse than before...There was a time that i was six pounds less than my current weight and there are pictures from that time which prove that my lower body looked great but my upper body and especially my face looked tired and older...brrr...
...which is the last thing that i want to happen to me at my wedding

First, please let me say "I would kill to have collarbones like yours!" I don''t know what it is, but I just think that the collar area is so pretty.

On to other matters...your dress is lovely and soooo flattering. You are workin'' that dress! I don''t think you need to lose any weight, but I see what others mean about the cups and the front needing to be a little tighter. I hope it all comes together in the end the way you want it to!

Said in the most heterose*ual way possible - you look SERIOUSLY hot. Seriously.

Your dress is gorgeous, flattering, and you have the body for it. Your new husband is gonna be floored!
