    Pretty sure my dress was a size 10…It had to get altered a tiny bit smaller, but not a whole size.

    You won’t know until you try them on. I was a size 10-14 and wore a fit and flare. Some dressed worked, others did not.

    I tried on wedding dresses at the same time as a size 12-14 girl, and she ROCKED the mermaid!

    It’s all about your confidence!

    I did! I bought a size 10 sample gown for the 60% discount and had it sized down to an 8.

    I’m a size 8-10 in street clothes. My dress is a size 10 and I either need to lose weight before the wedding or have it let out. I tried on other body hugging dresses that did not look as good one me – not all dresses are created equal! I did find that this style was more flattering on me than sheath dresses and ballgowns though – just because you’re not a rail doesn’t mean you need to hide it all!
