Well, dress sizes are incredibly different from street sizes, and also vary from designer to designer. Which designer are you using? The best way would be to go to their website and look at their sizing chart, if they have one.

ETA: the bottome 2 measurements are likely your hips and then your hips including your rear

Wedding dress sizes are much different compared to street size.  In most stores, I’m a 0 or 2, but my dress is a 6.  I would trust the shop.  They deal with these designers all the time and will know what to order.  If you’re torn between two sizes, order the larger one.  It’s much easier to take a dress in than to let it out.<br />

springbee2015:  Hmm, I’m not too familiar with the conversions, but a quick search seems to show you are correct.  Can’t hurt to go up a size (they always run tiny anyways!!).  A good tailor can work magic with anything! And there’s nothing worse than the ‘girls’ not fitting where they’re supposed to
