Before I say anything I'd regret, I'd like some help finding options.
I've been asking both of my bridesmaids recently if they've tried on their bridesmaids dresses at all recently to ensure they fit properly and get alterations if required. I've been assured their all taken care of and everything is fine.
I saw one of my bridesmaids for the first time in a while yesterday, and she had put on some considerable weight (I get it, covid's hard). After asking her again in person if the dress still fits, she insisted all is fine.
Then last night, a few hours later, she texts me saying that the dress doesn't fit at all after trying it on again.
I'm trying to be empathetic that this is probably hard for her, but this has me really stressed out. We're coming close to 3 months until our wedding and there aren't a lot of options.
When we first ordered the dresses, they took almost 2 months to arrive. Because of this, I've told her that she may need to order a new dress right away to leave time for any further alterations. However, I just looked at the website we got them from (Azazie) and they retired my colour. She could get another colour that's similar, but I'm worried that she'll stick out like a sore thumb.
The other option is for her to try and lose some weight. However, that's not the easiest thing to do, and I don't want to count on that and give her pressure.
Does anyone else have any ideas? I don't want to hurt her feelings, but this is really stressing me out.
