I know the dress I want, and I tried it on at a salon that actually carried the dress. They told me it was a size 12 when I tried it on, and it was very large and they had to clip it onto me.
When I went to order the dress (from another place that doesn’t carry the dress) and when I looked at the size chart based on my measurements, it says I should order a size 16!
I cannot believe that there would be this much “stretching” of the dress from others trying it on – it has boning in the bodice, and a lace up back.
If I get the 16, it’ll be 3.5 inches too big in the bust, requiring LOTS of alterations and LOTS of money – when I’m already spending tons on the dress.
HELP! I would appreciate any and all advice.
