- Wedding: July 2008
My sister is stressed about wedding planning, I asked what she needed and I am now in charge of ordering her wedding dress. The dress is from Amsale’s Little White Dress Collection (no stores in our area so I’m ordering over the telephone).
Here’s the problem: We’ve argued about the size I should order for her. I know it’s none of my buisness and I should just do what she wants, but she is focused on the number and doesn’t realize the sizing could be different than everyday clothing retailers.
I’ve looked at the Amsale size chart numerous times, googled used dresses, and from what I gather a size 12 is made for a 28-29.5 inch waist. My sister is a street size 12/14 (32 inch waist ). She thinks a 12 is going to be big if she can drop 15 lbs (if she doesn’t lose she can’t send the dress back if it doesn’t fit, if it’s too big she can easily have it altered).
I’ve explained sizing to her multiple times. I’ve sent her the link to Saks.com size chart (they carry some of the LWD collection) and she still adamant on the 12.
Does anyone know anything about Amsale sizing and can confirm what I’ve read?
