16 or 18 I think. I’m a 12 normally and ordered a 14 in my Maggie. We both have roughly the same measurements.

Totally depends on the designed. Sometimes it’s one size, sometimes two or three. It also depends on the dress and where you carry your weight.  I’m a street 8/10, but 8 was anywhere from a 10 to a 14 in bridal.

It really depends. For me I ended getting a dress that was a size 8 and I wear a street size 10/12

I’m a 12/14. They ordered an 18 (not considered women’s size for my designer meaning no charge) and it will be tailored to my exact size. Everything in the size 12 sample fit except my hips. I was able to get it on & zipped but it pulled. I was actually a 16 measurement in the hips but came within 1/4 of an inch or something weird on designer chart so she wanted to go a size up for safety since it’s better to be too big. I agreed.

I’m a 14 street and I wore a size 18 Allure as a bridesmaid, but a 22 Allure Romance for my wedding dress. I think it depends on the designer and the dress itself. Some of the other designers ran much smaller too FYI.

It really can go anywhere! I’m 5’5 and weigh 168. I tried on size 10 to size 20, NO JOKE. The 20 hurt my feelings, but the clamps helped make me feel better. Given I used to be really big over 350+ lbs big, I ended up going to bhldn or bhldn.com and getting a dress they run street size and I’m a 10/12 my dress was a 10 so it also depends if you go to a traditional bridal store which uses bridal sizes or go to something a bit different like j crew or bhldn which are more street size based.


hope this helps!

I’m a street size 14/16 and I ordered my Galina dress in a 20 (though I do want to lose a little more weight before the wedding). Some dresses run smaller than others, some run larger, some are pretty spot on with your street size. I would suggest going to try some on so you can get a better idea.

@CaymanGirl:  Depends on the designer. Alfred Angelo is the same as street size.

I had to go up three sizes in bridal. It was not fun. 🙂
