@justwed22:  Well…if you’re different sizes in the bust, waist and hips–I don’t see how you’re going to get around alterations without the dress looking like it doesn’t fit you. I agree with the sales attendant. It’s far easier to alter down than up… 

Just know that if you order a dress that is too small in the hips–it may cost you a LOT more. More than likely, you might even end up having to order an entirely new  dress and then alter the bust down anyway. Chiffon dresses do have more give, BUT if it doesn’t fit in the hips, there’s not much you can do to fix that, short of ordering a new dress. 

Don’t be penny wise and pound foolish. You might buy smaller intended to save a little, and end up paying a lot more. 

If you’re concerned…call around to other bridal shops and see if any carry the dress in your sizes. That way you’ll know which fits best.

@justwed22:  I would get the 4. I was between sizes in a dress because of my hips as well and I ordered the smaller size. It still fit fine and I actually needed alterations on it still
