I was in the same situation as you-  thought I would lose enough wait to order the 12- but I ended up dropping 30 pounds for the wedding and STILL bought the 14. It’s easy for them to take in the dress but HARD for them to take it out.  Save yourself a LOT of stress and buy the 14.

If it makes you feel better, I was told that it is absolutely not a problem to take a dress in up to 3 dress sizes… beyond that I think it probably matters on the style of the dress – good luck with your weight loss goals!! 🙂

Closertofine:  if it makes you feel better, i once bought an extremely detailed, beaded and crystal-covered within an inch of its life dress for a pageant. problem was, it only came in a 16. i was a 6 at the time…but i loved it! i couldn’t say no to it. let me tell ya girl–a good seamstress will make any dress look like it was made specifically for YOU! 🙂 order a size bigger than you think you’ll need, because if they need fabric it’s easier to get it from your own dress. but yeah. way easier to go down than up. beautiful dress, btw!
