I would go with your wedding dress size.

I ordered my street size on the upper end, I usually wear a 2/4 and I ordered a 4, it fit. 

(But I sent it back because I didn’t think it looked good on me. I think it looks great on other people, just didn’t like it on me.)

I find that BCBG strapless dress run small in the bust. I can wear a 4 or a 6 and I’m a 6 in BCBG dresses.

I recently purchased a similar BCBG dress:

I typically wear a size 2 to 4 depending on the brand.  I tried on the 2, and it smushed my chest, so I ended up going with the 4.  I recommend going with the higher end of your typical street size.

I pretty much always wear a 4 and I’m also a 4 in BCBG, not bigger.  Jean size…27/28 or 4.  I have at least 4 BCBG dresses.  Where do you live?  They might allow you to order to their nearest store to try on?

I think their dresses run slightly small. I’m usually a large 10, small 12, and sometimes a 12 is pushing it for me in that brand.

I ordered this dress, and sent it back because I didn’t like it once I got it on.  I am generally size six – on the small end of 6 on top, and on the large end of 6 on bottom.  The 6 in this dress fit me perfectly, so I would agree that it leans a little toward the small end through the bust.  But the hips were fine for me too, so it doesn’t run too small.

I wore this in a size 8 when I normally wear a size 6 in dresses. I am selling it so if you want a worn once (and dry cleaned) please message me. 

If your measurements are different sizes on top & bottom you can take it into nordstroms for alterations.

Order 1 size up – I was normally a size 4, but the 6 fit me like a glove.
