    Hi, I am not a Mori Lee Bride, I went with Maggie Sottero instead. I did, however, try on a new Mori Lee dress in a size 2 that was simply not purchased at the salon it was ordered from (deposit was put down, bride never came back). It was too big on me, but I am a street size 00 (27-22-29). I said that it did not run true to size because it simply didn’t fit and that was the smallest size on the chart. To be fair, my maggie that was ordered in a 0 had to be taken in quite a bit on both sides, so maybe it is just the low end of the size chart didn’t catch me. The mori lee looked nice, but it wasn’t the ball gown I was hoping for so I didn’t purchase. It made me look like a pencil (but then again, I think all the fit and flare styles make me look like a pencil- I’m 5’7″)

    I’m not a Mori Lee bride either but bumping for new eyes.

    The first shop I went to had me try on a Mori Lee and INSISTED I order it in size 8 and have it altered…    I’m not stupid, I don’t wear an 8.    The dress I did buy was altered down a little smaller than a 0 would be  :/    Size 8, my ass.   (31-23-33, 5’4″, under 100 lbs)

    I’m a Mori Lee Bride!  Purchased my dress in a size 6 but am a 0 in street size. Had alterations done to my gown.  Overall fit after alterations was pretty close to perfect. Best of luck!

    Would love to see a Mori Lee size 2 as well! I ordered the Mori Lee 1911 in size 2, hollow to hem 55″ and hoping its proportioned right to my body!

    I am a Mori Lee bride! I was in between a size 8 and 10 but went with the 10 to accommodate my breast size. I am a size 2-4 in street clothes. I know that I will have to alter a lot in the waist, but I would rather have the top fit. I tried on a 6 and it was too big in the waist, but my breasts were spilling out the top. For reference, I’m 36-26-36 about 135 lbs, 5’9″

    I ordered a Mori Lee (5111). According to the chart, I was between an 8 and 10, but since i’m not totally well endowed (I hold my own though lol ), they ordered me an 8.My Measurements were 32-27.5-36.5

    I’m normally a 2-4 in street size and was shocked they ordered what I thought was a large size.  However, when I ordered they put me in a   similar Mori lee size 6 to try , and I could barely breathe!! So 8 it was! and even then I was worried it would be too small.
    When It came in , it fit everywhere for the most part besides the bust. I measured a 32 and the size 8 is for those who are around 35 in, so it’s going to have to be majorly taken in there. But, at the waist and hips , it was barely clipped when I tried it on.

    Hope this helps.
