You could ask Allure yourself but I would take Netbrides answer.  They probably do this quite a bit.  Personally, I don’t like the wide corset look so I would get the size 8 you fit into.

Well my first thought is that you need to go get a size based on your largest measurment. Even if the corset adds some room in the waist and chest, its not going to make the hips any bigger, so if you do end up ordering a smaller size, make sure your hips will still fit and you can walk and sit and stuff.

I think generally when a zipper back is converted to a corset, they take out more fabric to allow for the laces and it doesn’t change the size of the dress. I’d just get the 8.

I would stick with the 8.  I also ordered from Netbride and I do feel like they definitely know what they are talking about.
