Hello! I’ve just ordered my dress (Mori Lee 1862) but I’m a little worried it’s going to be too small! I’m in the UK so it’s a UK size 6 dress which measures 33-24.5-36.5.
But my measurements are 33.5/34-25-36…. The bridal shop seemed to think the 6 would be best as I’m on such a tight budget so looking to avoid expensive alterations. They haven’t ordered this particular dress in that many times though…
As I’m also very short (5’2) I’m worried that it will be too small in the wrong places (as I’ve heard this dress is quite long in the body)…And I’m worried that my bust will spill over the top. As the dress is very low at the back though, does being a little over on the bust measurement matter much?
Have any other short (but curvy) girls ordered this dress in before? Does it come up small? Any extra breathing room within the dress? Has anyone had this dress taken out before and does it mark the lace?
Thanks so much for your help – I’m one nervous bride!
