Mine was quite a bit smaller, I tried on (and by tried on I mean held up, I think I squeezed most of myself into it somehow but it wasn’t working too well so I just held it up) a 4 when I was a 16W (I have since lost weight and am an 8-10, but I wasn’t when I bought my dress).  I love my dress! You just need to know what you like and what looks good on you.  I think your dress is gorgeous and that you will absolutely love it when it fits you properly, no one likes anything that doesn’t fit so please don’t be discouraged!  My dress is being taken in (I exchanged my 16W for a 10 they’re taking it in to more of an 8) and I still didn’t like it even though it was too large rather than too small because it didn’t fit properly so I didn’t feel good in it.  The first time I “knew” I chose the right dress was when the seamstress had pins in it since it actually fit me for the first time, and my wedding is the 17th of this month!

Oh I think it is very beautiful and will be amazing when it fits. Seriously I was picturing something terrible Based on what u said! you will feel much better when you have the right size. If people keep asking about it just say “it’s a suprise” and then quickly change the topic πŸ™‚

Well I have dress envy.  The Pronovias Pergola is seriously one of the most beautiful dresses ever unleashed on the bridal market. You can’t fail to look great in it. The lace is divine.  You’ll put it on and wonder why you ever doubted it. Consider yourself lucky to have nabbed one.

Coming from the bridal world, this dress will totally work on you.  

And as a bride this past year, I wasn’t even able to TRY the dress on, but when it on the hanger I knew it was the one.  So I didn’t try it on until MY dress in MY size came in….yes there was crazy anxiety but it worked out better than I could have expected!

I’m plus size (bridal size 20) and tried on a bridal 12 in my dress. They had to clip it on the side of my bra at the back and pin it to give me an idea of how it would look.  Everything turned out fine! Seamstresses can do wonders!

plannerbear520:  oh my gosh, the Elsa is stunning! So wish I’d tried that one on. To me, Panem is pretty, but Elsa just has that wow factor. I think you’re going to love it.

Makes me want to open a bridal dress store so there can be a dress in every size. I didn’t know skinny bride were squeezing themselves into samoles that didn’t fit. I am a plus size and omg my hips were just a inch to big for the dress and the stores where darn hot and I started sweating! Omg!  Thankfully I wasn’t to far into my shopping when I found a store that had samoles that fit me and kept a comfortable tTempature!

crackktheskyy:  If you truly dislike your dress and it is within your budget to pick a new one, you may want to consider it. I bought a dress because it was inexpensive that I then cried about for days. So then I bought another dress. I don’t regret buying my second dress, I just regret making a decision on the first one before I was ready. 

But if you don’t dislike your dress, if you just feel like you should have put more effort into the search… Don’t worry about it. Nobody else knows what you were comparing your dress to, nobody else knows that you weren’t able to try the sample on in your size and were concerned about the fit. The dress isn’t the biggest, most important part of the wedding for some women, and that’s nothing to be ashamed of.

I don’t remember what my dress sample size was, but I was literally falling out of it and I was freaked out that it would be like that at the wedding.  I never had that moment of crying and loving my dress but I did like it at the time (more like the process of elimination because I was tired of dress shopping).  I was amazed at how it fit once it came in, in the correct size.

Don’t worry – you’ll look gorgeous!

I think the dress look amazing on you!! So ethereal! However the important thing is that YOU love it! I think sometimes too that fact that the dress doesn’t do up at the back plays a mental role in how you feel about the dress. I think once you get your dress in your size and you’re able ot look at it on you again you will fall back in love with it.
