I found my dream dress, but had to wait a few days before I could put down the deposit on it. When I was finally able to order the dress I had to be out of town. The dress was on sale and the sale ended before I would be back so I sent my FI in to pay for it.
I’m worried that it may be too small. See, when I tried on dresses I didn’t do measurements because I wanted some time to think about the dress. Because of my predicatment and needing to pay the deposit before the sale ended I told the consultants over the phone what size to order it.
I’m a street size 10 – even the formal dresses I buy are that size – so I told the consultant the same. Now I’m worried it may be too small. It has bodice lacing on the back and I think the sample dress I tried was a 12 (and somewhat big). But maybe I should go with the sample size they had?

You may be safe. Most wedding dresses are very wonky on sizing, but AA seems true-to-life. I’m a size 14 on top, and that’s the sample size I tried on at the store and it fit perfectly. Same with the bridesmaid dress I have from there.

I’ve only worn AA bridesmaid dresses, but I always found my AA size was smaller than my street size. You’re likely fine.

I originally bought an AA dress and when it came in it was really big on me. I did a lot of looking around after the whole fiasco with that dress. Everywhere I went to after that got out their size charts for the different designers, and told me their dresses run about a size bigger than most other designers (which was why mine practically fell off).

I ordered mine in my street size (6) and it came in fitting pretty true to size it was slightly large in the chest area (not AA fault mine for having small boobs ) and it was too long other than that it was pretty much perfect

So I called the shop and asked that they change my order to the 12 instead. The sample in the store was a 12 and was slightly big. But not knowing how the 10 fit I would have been distraught if it was too small. I’d rather have a dress taken in rather than try to figure out how it can be let out.
Thanks for the help ladies!

Nevermind… my dress is an Alfred Sung dress.
