I found my goal dress!!

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

So I am officially 20-25 lbs from my goal!!! YAY!!!! emoticon Right now I want to get down in between 158-163 so I was looking around trying to think of something to push me those last 25 lbs. Well I think i found it!! I always wanted an animal print dress but never really had the guts to wear one out. I think it's time to show what I have been working hard for!

Last I measured on 9/8/11 my bust was 39.25, high waist 33 but my tummy(full abs were 41 :-/) and hips were 43.5. I want to make this possibly a new years dress so I have about 3 months to lose 20/25 lbs. might be pushing it but gonna try damn hard!! Just am not sure what size to get. The reviews said the dress runs small so even tho I fit into xl now in some brands...I'm thinkin I might have to stick with it in the JLo dress even when I get to my goal hmmm...What do you think?? From the measurements below (off the website - kohls.com) which size would be a good one to get to work towards?? But then again if it runs small I dont if I should even go off the measurements on the site. Ideas???

Size Chart
Size Bust Waist Hips
XS 2 32 1/2 in. 25 in. 36 in.
S 4-6 33 1/2-34 1/2 in. 26-27 in. 37-38 in.
M 8-10 35 1/2-36 1/2 in. 28-29 in. 39-40 in.
L 12-14 38-39 1/2 in. 30 1/2-32 in. 41 1/2-43 in.
XL 16-18 41-43 in. 33 1/2-35 1/2 in. 44 1/2-46 1/2 in.

Just saw..measurements are all jumbled on here...heres the link ---

    This is an awesome goal dress!!! Love it! My weight is in your range & I checked my measurements ~ I would try a large... but if they run small??? I'd be tempted to get the X-large so that I'd be more likely to be able to wear it New Years Eve. 20 pounds is a lofty goal in 3 months & the last 10 are supposed to be the hardest (or so I hear, lol). I hope you get this dress ~ I wanna see pics when you're wearing it!!!!

    That is an awesome dress! Sorry I can't offer suggestions for sizing. I rarely risk ordering something online. To me, clothing sizes aren't really accurate. I have three pairs of jeans, all the same size, color, and brand, and they all fit me differently. I would say, for a clingy dress, error on the side of caution and plan to buy a bit large. If it's a bit loose, there will just be more movement. Better than too small and having no movement at all.
