bekagan:  My dress is the Tara Keely 2206. I’m 5’2 street size 8, bust 36C. I had tried on the sample which was a 12 but they had me order a 14 because they say Tara Keely tends to run small. I was in a wedding shortly after I purchased my dress, and the bridesmaid dress I ordered was a 12. I guess I’d rather have mine taken in, than taken out. I hope this helps!

I would probably order the same size that you tried on. Since it hadn’t been tried on much at all it seems like it would be pretty accurate. Alterations are so expensive & I think that bridal salons act like alterations are the answer to everything…but again, they cost a lot of money. If you fit into the 12, comfortably, then go with that. That’s what you tried on. There may be a slight error in your measurements?

bekagan:  I ordered TK2358 in a size 16 and I’m a 36D. It was slightly big on me in the bodice, maybe a better fit for a 36E, so I would imagine a 14 would be big on a 38B. Maybe just order the bigger size and build the alterations costs into your budget? It’s much easier to take something in than let it out!
