We were able to see the exact stall where I first bought the dress and even if there were very few dresses left, my mom, sis, and I were able to buy one dress for each of use. Of all the available designs, I chose this one, but when I fitted it when we reached home, the fabric wasn't as big as the first dress - the size of the dress was just enough for me to fit in it. Bulges around my lower tummy area was quite visible, and sitting down, I was a bit cautious because the fabric was so thin that if it stretches, it might tear.
Still, I am happy that I could fit into this dress. Our proposed Ilocos getaway will take place either April or May this year - if this doesn't push through within the summer months, we might do it come October. That being said, I have more or less three months to fit good in this dress.
