    So I have a tricky question (I think).

    In the beginning of February I have a work event where I will need to order some very nice clothing for because its not all that possible to find what I need locally.

    That being said, I'm hoping to lose 15-20 lb in the month of January. Now I'm having a bit of a dilemma regarding how to go about ordering:

    1) order the size that I wear now and try and find a seamstress to take in any additional inches - those are rare too, and expensive.

    2) Wait until a week or two before and pay for rush shipping.

    3) Guess that 15-20 lb will probably take me down at least one size and take a gamble that I'll be able to fit into the cloths in time! *yikes*

    I need advise!

    i would order the smaller size, it gives you more of an incentive then to fit in to it

    BLimey!

    well, forget the seamstress idea, its daft to buy the size you are now! and the cost is alot, also I find clothes never look as they should taken in!

    I would either wait and pay extra for fast shipment, or order a size smaller at least.. depending on what it is you order and what kind of style it is you could get away with a smaller than normal size and get more wear out of it!

    I'd order a size smaller as well. Or perhaps you could get something like a wrap dress or a flapper style thing that you can either tie tighter (wrap dress) or isn't really fitted (flapper). Good luck!

    I would say the smaller size to as they say each stone lost should make you a dress size smaller. Good luck xx

    From what I've seen, most people drop a size for every stone to stone and a half they lose, (14/21lbs as I'm guessing you don't work in stones!) so should be down a size by then, go for it! :) And good luck :)

    Thanks :) My only challenge at this point is I'm kind of half way between sizes. My waist is a size bigger than my hips/bust. So its a matter of negotiations of sorts. I'll figure it out :)

    What about a Maxi style dress?

    You basically only need to have a bust and that doesn't change drastically. Some styles you can pull in at the middle with a belt if it is on the large size. And the length will be fine cause you don't lose height.

    And very fashionable!

    Yes those are very pretty! This is the one dress I'm looking at. The other outfit is a formal suit.

    I'm personally not a fan of those high skirts. But looking at your display pic, it would suit you.
