I don’t know if I would risk that, unless you can try it on first or return if it doesn’t fit!

Wtoo Olivia was on my short list and I tried it on many time. I don’t remember the sample size, but I think it was an 8 and it fit me pretty well. The fit is all in the torso, since it’s a full skirt, so base your judgement off the waist and bust measurements.

Overall the Wtoo/Watters line has a long torso for most of their dresses, which was perfect for me because so many other lines were just way too short in the torso and you can’t add on length there.

I eneded up in Watters Escalante at a size 8 and I didn’t even have to have it altered (other than cutting off the train). When I got fitted my bust put me at an 8 and they said I would likely have to get it taken in a bit at the waist. But then I gained about 5-10 lbs and when it came in, it fit like a glove! So I would say their sizing is pretty good.

Mrs.Z.: No worries, I’m 5’10” and ~175 lbs. My hips are also my biggest measurement, my waist is 30.5″ and bust is 39″ and I wear a 32F.  I usually wear Med or Large tops, size 14 pants and size 8-10 dresses (depending on the cut – I usually buy full skirts). I thought Olivia was fairly supportive given that it’s strapless and the front is basicailly one piece (not a separate bust area, if you know what I mean). Ultimately, I wanted the support of straps, so I went with Escalante, but Olivia was as good as any of the other strapless dresses I tried on. I also loved the oatmeal color, but it was very close to my skin tone, so it kind of blended in a way that wasn’t great – it would probably looks better with someone with skin tone lighter or darker than the oatmeal fabric.

I don’t have a great example, but I did try on Wtoo and a Watters dress at the first salon I went to. It really depends on the style of the dress for the size. In one, I was a 10 and another I wasn an 8. The 10 was a fuller gown, where the 8 was a more relaxed style.

I found this to be the case with Maggie dresses, too. In one, I was a 10 that was a lace fit/flare, and another that was more sheath, I was a 6.

Mrs.Z.:  Dress sizing is confusing! It really depends on the brand, but most of my pants are 6/8 and tops can be small/medium. I’m only a 34B chest, too… and have some hips!!

My dress is a fit/flare and is a 10 in Jasmine. It mainly needed to be taken out around the hips so I could move, but everything else was pretty much left alone.

I mainly tried on 8’s and 10’s, and it really depended on the designer/style for what fit and didn’t fit. Anything larger than a 10 was usually WAY too big, and even some 10’s were too big.

I have a Watters gown (ghila). I found the sizes were close to street sizes. I am 5’10 and 120 lbs and I got the sz 2 with extra length and it fits perfectly, no hem needed.  I am normally a size 0.  The dresses are made to be 5’10 in their normal length, I wanted to wear heels so I got extra length.
