So I’ve been thinking about my dress and ever since I ordered it I have been second guessing the size that was ordered. I bought the Pronovias Alce in a size 4. According to the size chart, I’m pretty accurate in the size 4 column…except the hips. I’m skinny (too skinny/bony if you ask me) except in the hip/butt area. I have fairly wide hips for my stature, so I’m worried that when I receive my gown for the first fitting, it will be too tight on the hips. That’s why I wanted to know if there is extra seem fabric in the Pronovias dresses just incase it would have to let out in the hip area? Or should I have ordered a 6 instead to be safe? I really don’t have the option of losing weight because if I do I will look sickly, especially in my arms/shoulder area.
Soooo can it be let out or not? Someone please ease my crazy mind! Thanks!!

I’m not sure to be honest, my dress is a Pronovias but it was way too big when it came in, so I didn’t check the seems for extra fabric! I believe most dresses come in with an inch or two leeway that can be let out. Sorry and hope you find your answer soon!

I think you will be fine! I am a size 4 and the hip area was still to big for me.

You and I are pretty similar on this, methinks–I also have Alice! I’m 6’0 tall, and when they measured me, they said I was a perfect size 6 except in the waist, which was a bit smaller. When mine came in, it did indeed fit perfectly, and was maybe even a little snug in the hip area. They told me at the store they could let it out if I gained any weight before the wedding (to which I was like, “Um, that’s NOT going to happen.”). So… the moral of the story is that the hips will be just right if it fits as it’s supposed to, and that they can also let it out a bit if it’s too tight.
Hope this helps! PM me if you want to see what it looks like. I’d love to see my dress twin wearing hers as well!
