@kristinaz871:  I ordered a mori lee and it’s right in line with their sizing chart.  I found it to run about 2-3 sizes larger than north american street sizing

I also ordered a Mori Lee.  Style number 1802.  My measurements were almost exactly the same except my bustiline is 1/2 inch smaller.  They recommended that I order a size 4 as well and it fits me perfectly.

@kristinaz871: I ordered a Mori lee -style 5106 size 12.  my normal clothes size is also a 12 so i was quite surprised that it wasnt any different.  I havent tried on mine yet but the sample in the store fit perfectly.  I guess if your does come in small there may be room to work with taking it out a bit…?  Good luck!

Based on a measuring chart I found online you are a perfect 4.. with my experience with Mori Lee they run pretty true to size. I tried on a mori lee dress size 8 and it was too big.. The dress size I ended up ordering was 12 and it’s a Vera Wang gown.

kristinaz871:  I had a Mori Lee for my wedding in January and I was on the cusp of 2 sizes based on their chart and was told to go to the one up. I ended up having to do a ton of alterations which cost $400. I had to take a HUGE amount from the bust, kind of made me sad LOL, not sure who they were making the dress for but it wasn’t for my girls!

My dress was a corset style and I could have gone with the the 12 which was 2 sizes up from my street size.

It also depends on the style of the dress as mine was corset which can be must more forgiving.

I would say if you were right on with the chart that you shouldn’t worry.

kristinaz871:  How did your sizing turn out? I am also between two sizes (a 6 and an 8). I am 33 – 27 – 37, so per the size chart I am a 6, except for the waist. I am worried about spending a ton of money on alternations though! I am getting the 6774 which is also a low back, so not sure how much the waist will matter…

Help!!

I am 33-26.5-37 and ordered a 6. Fingers crossed it fits with little to no alterations. I am more worried about the waist measurment and the length. I ordered the 55 inch length and am 5’4 planning on wearing flats

I am a street size 12/14 and I ordered a size 14 dress. It’s a ball gown and I have a small chest- so I didn’t have to worry too much about the hip area. When it come in it fit rather good- I barely needed any alterations.

jennybearcutie:  It fit perfectly and didn’t need a hem. I was worried at first, so I got flats just in case, but was able to wear a small heel about 3 inches.

my wedding gown and a gown I recently purchased for a pageant were by Mori Lee. For both I had to size up because I have what some people call a donkey..aka..a huge butt. But you sound pretty proportionate so you should be fine with following the size chart. How much time will you have for alterations once it arrives?
