Hi I feel the same I need to lose over a stone as I was on a wheat and gluten free diet but the Doctors don't tell you they are packed with sugar and fat :)

I'm having my first 'trying on stage' this weekend. I'm 4 sizes bigger than my target so I know i won't be 100% happy, but I'm still using it to get an idea of necklines etc. I can then keep looking online for the right style, and try on again in a few months after my c9 and F15 plans.

Lucy - going gluten free usually helps people lose weight as they're eating less sugar from not eating al the cakes, white bread and white pasta etc

You don't need to substitute gluten free equivalents, just change to things that are naturally gluten free and you'll find it far healthier.

Maybe trying a dress on will give you a push to lose weight.

I totally understand, my baby is 7 months old and I'm worrying il never be happy in what I chose. But maybe going just to have a look will give you the excitement and drive to get yourself to a happy place. Good luck

Well I'm not getting married until 2020 went to try dresses on for style came out with my wedding dress. It'll probably need altering when it comes to my big day but it's all good aha x

I couldn't face the hassle of a wedding dress shop so bought on-line from Debenhams. Love the dress and was happy to be able to try it on at home in the knowledge that I could return it if I was unhappy. Lucy, I have lost a stone in weight in the last 8 weeks by using Bootea from Holland & Barrett and cutting carbs (I don't eat many but it did make a difference). I also start the day with an egg as it stops you getting hungry too early.

It depends on the style you get I tried a few dresses on and some looked bloody awful (I'm a size 16) then I tried the one on and it looked perfect and I felt lovely in it and not overweight. My mum has seamstress skills so if do loose a bit of weight in the next 10 months I avoid the high alterations costs as she can take it in x

I'm really self conscious! If I go shopping for clothes I'm awful!! As soon as I put the dresses on I felt amazing, felt big in some, but my dress fits me in all the right places and I literally feel amazing!! I was so worried like you but it was such a lovely experience x
