Her sister was supposed to get married last May, but the wedding was delayed until next spring because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Last week she approached me with a request for another $ 600 because she wants the dress changed more,” the Reddit user explained. “She has gained some weight in recent months and now she no longer fits in the dress.
