I have a Maggie fit and flare dress and it is big in the hips. My dressmaker said that they always do that and nearly everyone needs them taken in. 

I swear that bridal stores tell you to order a too big dress so they get commision from their alterations people. They told me to order a 4, I insisted on a 2 and should’ve gotten a 0.

My Maggie was a sample size 10 which fit perfectly when I tried it on just a little tight in the hips (not the butt).  I lost a bunch of weight though and now it fits perfect in the hips just needs to be taken in in the waist and bust.

I think you should be fine with an 8 and if nothing else it can be let out a little.  That was my option if I didn’t tone up, it only needed to be let out maybe 1/4 inch on either side.  A 12 would have been WAY too big.

And if all else fails you could always get a booty shaper which will help tighten up the area for your dress.  You can buy them almost anywhere and they’re great when you need to “tone up” for a night.
