@cls9q:  My dress was a 4. And I think they ran small. Normally I am a 0-4. I was a size 6 in a different designer, though. It’s based on a chart of measurements, so I actualyl had to order based on my largest measurement- my waist.

ETA: Do you know your measurements? You can compare them to a chart for a random designer to get an idea! You can google these charts!

Street size 8.  bridal size 10.  I know its usually +2 for bridal size.  For what its worth, I think I would be a 6 if not for my bust.  

@cls9q:  Also, I think your body would look AMAZING in a fit and flare/mermaid style dress.  Make sure to try a couple on, just in case!

I am usually a size 4 or 6 (usually 4 in dresses, 6 in pants), and my dress was a 6 at David’s Bridal. But in another store, I was like a 12 because of my largest measurement, which is my bum! But they specifically told me that that designer (Marisa Bridal) ran unusually small.

I was a street size 10 shirt size M. Tried on a size 12 dress, ordered a 14(per the consultant) but should have ordered a 16…. the sample was sooo streched out, not realizing it. So when i got it in, i couldnt get zipped past my boobs… it was a nightmare.

 

My Bff was a size 4.. had to order a 10 or 12….

 

Dont get to wrapped up in the number…

Wedding dress was a size 8, in dresses I can run from a 2-8 depending on the cut in real clothing.

@cls9q:  Oh lord. I usually wear a 10-12. My dress is a 16. I’m going to have the seamstress remove the size tag when I start doing fittings. That’s a big jump from regular sizing!

I ordered a bridal 12, but then I lost about 20lbs so I had to have it altered down to closer to a bridal 8. In everyday clothes I wear a size 4. Try not to worry about the size. I work in a bridal salon and the sizes differ a lot depending on designer. Most of them use European sizes so try not to focus on that.

I am a size 8 and ordered a 12. It’s really not a big deal.

I’m a street size 12/14. My dress was a 20 to fit my hips but was 8million sizes too big in the bust (seriously, me and all my BM’s could have fit in that bust!).

@cls9q:  I am very hippy too with a small waist and torso. I am a AUS 10, US 6, sometimes a size up or down depending.  They ordered by an Aus 12 (US 8) which came and is far to big on top so needs to be taken in quite significantly.  But when I was trying gowns the sizes were all over the place – some I needed a US 4, some a 6, some an 8.

Street size 10, dress size 16 first fitting Saturday and probably going to be taken in to a 14. Mori Lee dress

dont stress about the number, you want it to fit right and not be too small!
