Here’s my problem – my bridesmaids are wearing the Bari Jay dress below (the shorter one). We are looking at the size chart for Bari Jay and trying to figure out what sizes to order. The issue is that of course none of them fit exactly within one size for the bust, waist and hip measurement.
I know the general rule is to order the size that fits the biggest measurement and take in the dress in the other areas. But my opinion is that because of the shape of the dress, the waist and hip measurement shouldn’t play a huge role since the dress is mainly just fitted in the bust. So I’m kind of torn, because if I ordered a size to fit the biggest measurement, the waist and the hips, it might result in having a dress that is way too big up top and this style of dress might be difficult to significantly alter at the top. What do you guys think?
