Yes, because you can add room if needed depending on how tight you tie it.

I would not buy a size two dress if that’s your street size – wedding dresses typically run smaller. I’m a 00-0 street size and ordered a size 4 dress. My measurements were between a size 2 and 4.  I’d consult with the bridal shop you are ordering and look closely at the manufacturer’s measurements. 

Generally corset backs give you more space since you can tie it tighter or loser depending on what you need.

Corset backs are more forgiving both ways.  I’m a wedding dress size 6 and when i tried on the sample (size 10 or 12) it felt like it fit.  Order the size you currently are and if you lose the weight, you can always tie it tighter.
