My bridesmaids wore Jim Hjelm dresses.  Sizing seems to run like bridal gown sizing.  my SIL is super tiny (like24 inch waist) and order was told to order a size 6.  It did fit her.  I’d ask to look at the measurement chart at the salon or see if you can find it online.  Order the size that corresponds to the largest of the measurements.  There didn’t seem to be a ton of extra fabric to work with if it needed to be let out, but that could have been the style I chose.

I normally wear a size 6 and had to order a size 10, but I didn’t need much alterations – just shortened and taken in a tiny bit so it was tight enough that I wasn’t pulling it up all night.

My bridesmaids are wearing Jim Hjelms and the boutique measured them before picking a size. I tried one of them once they came in that was a size 4 and it fit perfectly…I’m generally a size 2.
