Dress for tonight doesnt fit

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    So it's my grad ball tonight. Had a bad feeling before I went to work tonight I should probably try my dress again. Got in at 11pm and cannot zip it at my chest.

    I am big chested (34F) but that's me came down a band size from 36F when I bought it and since I last tried it on a few weeks ago. Was trying to zip myself but my stepmum WILL just say she's not willing to force it if it doesn't slide up easily (happened last time I tried it, and my sis-in-law but in elbow grease and got it done no problem).

    I'm now lying in bed panicking and can't sleep. I will literally take any and all hints and tips you may have cause I could cry just now.

    Force it! If you are afraid that the zipper can broke, sew it up when on. Of course the best option would be to get another but when it's not possible just try to put it on and then keep it for some time - either your dress or your body will adjust and you won't fell so uncomfortable.
