For my mori lee dress my bridal size was 8 it fit perfectly in the hips but the bust was too big. I could squeeze into a 6 but the hips were too tight. My street size at the time was about a 2-4 and I bought my davids bridal slip in a size 4.

The sizing really differs from one designer to another

In jeans I wear size 6…my wedding dress is the same size..I guess that’s weird

 

Edit: I also find it weird that people with my similar size 5’5 126 lbs. are a much smaller size 2-4..why am I 6? haha

Street size 4, wedding gown is a 10.  I probaly could wear an 8 now, since I’ve lose weight since I bought it.

Street size 16, bridal size 20.  Really depressing to say after seeing all the thin brides above 🙁

 Street size 14/16 my Davids Bridal dress is a snug 14 in most other designers I was a Bridal 16 or even 18.

@Lyndzo: Nothing wrong with curves 😉

I wear a 16 in most pants, but an 18 in most dresses (I got big boobs).  My wedding dress (a Maggie) was an 18 but I had to have it altered from the boobs down to more like a 16.
