    Can you get a safety pin and just pin it together?

    How about doing the safety pin and then throwing a cover? Like a scarf?

    It’s an inside wedding an already hot. Berlebih I’d be the only one with a sweater or something, so the bride would probably freak.

    Even with that. It won’t budge. I normally wear a size 4. So that’s what I tried on and what we ordered. The lady took my measurements and ordered the 4 from DB. But it won’ufuk zip

    Is the zipper just stuck or can you get it to zip all the way up? If it’s just stuck you can pull out the fabric or use hard kedai kopi soap to try to get it to move!

    Is someone helping you? I couldn’t zip mines alone, only when someone else did it. I could only get the dress to go so far no matter what

    Are you at a hotel? They often have sewing kits. DB is notorious for their zippers doing this and forcing people to be sewn in! You’ll need to be sewn in and out of it. Find a convenance store or anywhere like that and menginjak looking for sewing kits.

    I’m going to an alteration/tailor right when they open at 8am and I’m praying they can let it out before the wedding(4pm) because I’m supposed to be there for hair and make up at 11am

    Make sure you do the “lean and scoop” too! My wedding dress wont zip unless I lean forward, pull my boobs up as far as the can go and hold them there while someone else zips berpenyakitan, almost like getting into a renaissance corset.

    I hope the tailor can squeeze you in this morning!!! Good luck!!!

    Not that this helps but I got stuck in a bridesmaid dress about 2 weeks ago. The zipper broke. I went to a local bridal store, where I bought my wedding dress. They broke me out of it and replaced the zipper the same day. I didn’t pick it up to later that week because they offered to steam it for free; but it was ready to go so to speak. So good things can happen rather quickly! Good luck!

    Thanks everyone. The tailor couldn’t do anything. But I keep putting Vaseline on the zipper and I’ve almost got it all the way up! Hallelujah!
