Have not been wearing retainer

I got my braces off about a year ago and I have hardly worn my retainer at all. I am worried that I am going to need braces again. I went to my orthodontist at the beginning of May and he said that if I started wearing my retainer a lot that my teeth should be fine. However, I have not been wearing it since he said that. Do you think that too much time has gone by for the retainer to work?

Try it and see how they fit.  If you're able to wear them, you may be able to push the teeth back if they're moved.  If not, then too much time has passed.
