I keep going back and forth between the Allure size charts, my tape measure, and the internet.
According to the size chart for allure dresses, I’m a size 8. But my street size is LARGER than that… is that right?! I wear size 10 jeans and slacks…
What is going on? Everyone online talks about wedding dresses running small. Did I land in wedding dress bizzaro land?

I also ordered an Allure dress. My street size is a 0 and they ordered me a size 4……Ive always heard that bridal sizes were bigger then street sizes….I would call your bridal store and tell them your concerns and see what they have to say….Or see if you can find a number to contact Allure and ask them as well 🙂

It depends on the dress/designer. Typically you have to go up a size or two in a wedding gown. I’m a street size 16 and had to buy a 20.

I went back and got measured again. They totally ordered the right dress…. whew! Thanks, ladies!

i think it also depends on your body shape and the style of dress. my dress was ordered in a size smaller than my pants size because it’s a ballgown and my hips/butt are a lot bigger than my waist/top, so being that it’s not going to be fitted to my hips, that measurement doesn’t matter so much. Thus my wedding dress size is smaller than my pant size.
