I don’t understand your question – the bridal shop should take your measurements and get you the size you need.

Don’t let it bring you down.  Wedding dresses are never the true street size you really are.

I think just about everyone has to order up at least two sizes for their wedding dress. It stinks but it’s not about you, it’s just the way the dresses are sized!

Nobody can answer that for you. even others that are an 18 will have a different shape than you. Plus, every designer has a different size chart. Have your bridal salon measure you for whatever dress you choose.

I guess I don’t understand your question? As long as a designer makes a size that fits your measurements (or your largest measurement, as that’s how they’re ordered), you can get a dress. The size doesn’t matter at all.

If you are a wedding dress size 22 then you will need to look for a preowned dress that size. You can get one 24+ as well as you can have it taken in you can maybe get a 20 if its lace up back it will depend where your largest size proportion is

@mrscma:  I would not go any smaller – taking out most dresses is next to impossible.  You can get dresses taken in a size or two (depending on lace, beadwork, seams, etc).. but it’s difficult bordering on impossible to let out wedding dresses more than half an inch or so…

Wedding dress sizes are going to vary a lot by designer.  Some are close or at street size, but most are a lot different from street size, but they are not consistent.  I think if you have a particular dress you’re considering, google the designer’s dress measurement chart and see what  size your largest measurement fits.  

You could probably buy a dress that size and up about 2 sizes.  Sizing dresses down is more do-able than sizing up.  Although if the dress has a zipper, you could probably go as many as two or three  sizes down and have a corset put in to make it fit.
