    I’m a street size 8 and bought a size 12 Allure dress. I fit into the 10 just as well, but it’s a mermaid style dress, and I thought the 12 would give me a little more ability to move/breathe.

    If you’re between two sizes, go with the larger one — it can always be altered down if needed.

    I wear street size 8 and was between an Allure size 10 and 12. I ended up ordering the 12, but will have to get it altered.

    My allure dress was a 10 and I usually wear a 4 in tops and 6 in bottoms.  It fit well in the hips but needed a lot of alterations in the waist and chest.

    I did not purchase an Allure bit tried on several. I am a street size 6 and the sample 8s fit perfect.
