Oh girl, wedding and bridesmaid dress sizes give EVERYONE anxiety because we’re always forced to order up a size or two or three. No one likes that.

But seriously — that dress looks awesome on you just the way you are. It fits you really well. And you’ll find that a dress that fits you well matters way more than the number on the tag. Heck, once you find a dress you like, just cut out the dang tag! 🙂

First off, you look fab in that dress, even if you never lost another pound.

I recently lost a lot of weight, went from a street 22/24 to 14/16. But because of my large chest and hips I had to order a size 20 dress, the waist measurement is going to be huge on me, but I plan on loosing more weight and hope to be down to a 12 by my wedding.  Honestly it made me feel for a split second like why did I do all that work only to purchase a size 20 dress.  I was not able to try on the dress I fell in love with, I just had to hold it up to myself and imagine. I tried on similar sihloettes but nothing came close to my Maggie-Monet, can’t wait for April when she arrives.

I normally wear a size 22. In Justin Alexander, they told me I would be between 22 and 24. I found my dream dress, which is an Allure. I’m a 30 on their size chart! It was so flattering on me, I don’t care what the tag says.

I had to order my dress smaller and get it taken in. My bottom half is more plus than my top half! I’m a pant size 20/22 and my dress is an 18.
