I’m sure it will fit fine! And if it needs to be let out a little, it should have an inch of give in the seams!

You should be fine. Like PP said, you can usually have it let out if needed.

@Zenostar:  Do you have a picture of yourself in your dress?

@Zenostar:  I will also be wearing the Stella York 5865 (ordered in October 2013) in ivory with blush underneath. I ended up ordering a Size 10 since I need to make sure the dress fit my chest because that is the “largest, thickest, widest” area on my body. The sample I tried on was also a Size 10 and it fit near perfect apart from it being way too long.

I was able to order it “custom length” for an additional amount of money so I am hoping I will not have to alter it too much. I really want it to flare out at the bottom so I may have to add some volume but we’ll see when it gets here!

I absolutely fell in love with the blush underneath. I think it makes the dress unique and so romantic!

I’ve included a picture of the front and also the train in the back. I wish there was better lighting when I took this picture so the blush really popped but oh well!

@Zenostar:  I was very tempted to order the version with the zipper/buttons down the back. The girl who helped me told me that with the zipper/button style, measurements have to be more exact, which made me nervous because my weight fluctuates quite a bit. I AM AN EMOTIONAL EATER! LOL!

I really wanted my wedding dress to hug my body so I decided the corset would be the safest way to go! It’s been alot of cardio and upper body workouts since the dress was ordered.

Have you decided if you are going to wear a veil? I am on the fence.

@Zenostar:  I was thinking of just having a very simple veil for our pictures and ceremony and taking it out for the dancing/drinking and putting a very pretty blingy hair accessory in.

We are having an evening ceremony at 7:00 PM with just drinking/dancing/speeches after but our pictures are from 3-6:30 PMish.

I want my hair up I know that! When my hair is down, it does not hold curl very well. Also, July in Saskatoon is hotter than hell!
