I’m the same size, and fitting into samples really wasn’t a big deal.  The other samples you tried on that didn’t work were probably dress size 8, which is the norm sample.  A sample 12 will be fine.  Best of luck, I love the neckline on that dress!

I had the same issues with my dress shopping. I found that as long as I can pull it on it’s fine, it doesn’t need to do up and they should have something in the store to help hold the dress on to give an idea of how it will look. I didn’t like my first, second third…twenty second choices I liked online haha. The dress I loved I hate online and didn’t even recognize it when I saw it in person, I find stock photos very deceptive, don’t worry you will find your dress, whether it’s this one or another. Beautiful dress btw!

I am a street size 12-14, so every dress was small on me, but I felt like I could get a really great idea of what they would look like on me even though the more fitted dresses were near impossible to get on. You’ll be fine, and your mom is being difficult and unreasonable.
