    I wear a 6 in everyday clothing and dresses and my wedding dress is a 10, although it is being taken in a bit. So 1-2 sizes For me.

    I went up two, but I could have gone up another because of the waist measurement of the designer vs. my waist. It ended up being fine, though, and then the only alteration I needed was a hem.

    I like to wear stuff loose, so I actually went down a few sizes (wedding dresses have to be fitted, obviously). all the sample sizes, which were around 4, I was swimming in. I usually pick size 4 for street clothes, but there was no way a size 4 wedding dress was staying on me without clips!

    they’d have to order the smallest size, and they still have to take it in. I heard all about how wedding dresses will be sized bigger/etc, so I was pretty surprised by that! I didn’t go to david’s bridal, I tried a lot of shops, even the smallest dresses were too big and had to be majorly clipped. I’m average height and not a stick, so I wonder how people smaller than me cope. ;P

    I’m a 12-14 street size. Wedding dress is a twenty but the bust was massively taken in (I just have hips).

    I usually wear a 6 and bought a 10 from DB. The only alteration was the hem.

    I typically wear a 6 in jeans and a 8 in dresses and my wedding dress is a 14! I have a really wide rib cage so the 12 would have been a little too snug around that area, but the 14 was huge in the chest area lol

    Im an AUS 18, Ive had to go to a 22 for wedding dresses. VERY depressing 🙁 Also, my engaged MOH is a 10 and is looking at dresses in a 12. However to note: I have an hourg;ass figure with a very large bust (i.e. I need a 22 in the boobs but the rest is laced as tight as can be!)

    I was wearing a street size 2 and should have bought a size 4 dress (Maggie). But the consultant convinced me to get a 6, so I wound up gaining weight for my wedding dress!

    I bought a Kenneth Winston dress and I got my normal size and then actually had to take it in quite a bit. It seemed to be pretty close to normal dress sizes.

    I’m normally a 6, but my dress was a 4. It was a corset back, which allows more flexibility in sizing. It fit perfectly- just needed the hem brought up a tiny bit.

    @Glasgowbound:  My wedding dress is 18 – and I am peeved because it doesn’t bring me in AT ALL due to being ordered one size too damn big. Here we go alterations.

    My dress was a 14 and I was between an 8-10 in regular clothing. It was a bit big though, the corset ended up being a lot narrower than I had hoped, but oh well! It’s just a number after all.
