    I think if you have someone who can alter the dress locally, order the standard size. Since you havwnt tried it on at all I would be so afraid to get it custom and not be able to send it back if you dont like it on.

    @ksus07:  Your dress is on the more simple side, so if it does not fit “perfecly” you can still get a good idea if you like it or not (where some more complex dresses change a lot once fitted). My vote is to pick the generic size. Gosh forbit you dont like it your stuck with the dress.

    I had the exact same worries with my online dresses. I ended up asking for custom measurememts but allowed an extra cm on each measurement. That way it could easily be taken in by a local dressmaker

    Order the standard size.  That dress looks easy to alter
