So excited .... just bought my first ever ball gown ready for a posh dinner/dance in October. Since I first posted on this forum a few months' ago I have lost 2st 12lb and gone from a rotund size 24 to .... wait for it..... this dress was a size 16!!!!! Whooopeeeee. Mostly I'm a size 18 now so this dress must be a bit generous, but hey, what the heck, I'm not complaining. I'm as high as a kite and will need someone to poke me down off the ceiling soon. Any volunteers?
