    Do you think it's possible?

    My sister gets married next Saturday (13th September) I bought 2 dresses ages ago but have been putting off trying them on as I have been on and off plan recently (more iff than in if I'm honest). I tried them on last night, 1 doesn't quite do up and the other does up but it incredibly tight, especially across the stomach.

    I was bloated when I tried then on from a very off plan lunch yesterday but anyway here's the question. if I stick to plan completely for the next week and get back into doing the 30 day shred daily do you think it's possible to make at least 1 of the dresses wearable?

    I know a week isn't a long time and I will be getting another dress this weekend but does anyone think it's possible.

    Here's pictures of the dresses on, the strapless 1 is the 1 that doesn't quite do up - excuse the socks and bra straps

    Hi,

    Although is probably is doable, you have to ask yourself if you'd feel comfortable in either of the dresses?

    I'd hate for the day to be marred by you feeling uncomfortable, or not daring to move or sit down in either of the dresses.

    Best bet is probably to go and find a different dress this weekend that fits properly, and that you feel comfortable in xx

    Thank you for your replies, to be honest I was planning on going shopping tomorrow for another dress as I highly doubt it would be doable for me to get either of the above dresses to fit well in a week. I guess I was looking for validation (is that the right word) from others that it's not really achievable in such a short space of time and I'm not just taking the easy route by getting another dress.

    Sorry for rambling, hope this makes sense x

    It could be doable to fit into them, but its not likely to be comfortable. Besides, you can never have too many dresses! Hope you enjoy the day.
