Depending on the designer, this often happens in smaller sizes. Vanity sizing gets worse as you move up the size chart because there’s more opportunity for expanding size ranges. People only get so small after all.

@coastalbee88:  I used to work at a bridal salon, and when we used to measure ourselves for fun my hip measurement put me 2 sizes smaller than what I wear in jeans. I’m normally about a six in jeans and in dresses, but my measurements put me at a 4 in the bust and a 2 in the waist and hip. I wouldn’t worry about it too much. They are basing your size off their size chart, and every designer has their own size chart.
