@shortie1848:  my advice is to find a bridal seamstress in your area.  Take the picture of the dress to her and discuss your options if it doesn’t fit. I bought a Lazaro sample that was big and my seamstress gave me amazing advice on how she could alter it. I was referred to her by a bridal  consultant who told me that this seamstress once created a corset back for a woman who bought a used small dress (insted of the zipper back it came with). That could be a great option.  But if it’s not going to work for you,  most seamstresses are the first to tell you,  then at least you haven’t wasted your money. Make sure to get a price quote!  Alterations can be expensive.

@shortie1848:  So you’ve never tried this dress on? How do you know you will like it at all? Even if a dress is your proper size, it may not look right. You may not actually love it. Further, if it is in fact too small, you may never fit into it the way you’d like. I wouldn’t recommend planning on losing weight to fit into a dress; I’ve seen too many horror stories on here!

Have you tried on dresses elsewhere yet and found out what you like in terms of shape and style? It looks like you have plenty of time, so I would focus on things that you can try on and see yourself in without having to purchase something. I would say that if you had tried it on and knew your size and knew that you loved it, sure, go for it. But it seems like there are too many unknowns.

Here’s the sizing chart. For reference I’m a street size 0-2, ordered an 8.

Any luck with the 3250?  I wore it at my wedding in October and loved it!  But yes, Lazaro runs exteremely small!  I had to buy size 18 for my real size 10 body.
