I agree with you! I bought a Maggie Sotterro in a size two that fit me like a glove. I’m a two in real life. I know most of the times the dresses are cut smaller than real sizes, but sometimes I feel like that’s a conspiracy to get you to buy a dress that is actually too big so you end up buying alterations 🙁

Yeah I really do think this is true. Luckily I had an awesome consultant when I bought my dress. I tried on the sample which was a 10. We decided I needed to order a 12 because the 10 was slightly too small in the hips (read: I could have gotten away with it, but figured the saize up would offer a bit more on length as well).

She started doing the order sheet and measured me because it’s their policy to do so. She thought it was odd because I measured a few sizes up, but CLEARLY the 12 was the right size so she ordered that anyways!

I haven’t received my dress yet, but I did try the dress in a 12 at a different store and it fit like a glove!

Yup, ended up ordering a dress that fit me in the waist – where I lose weight the slowest – got the dress in, and it’s literally two sizes too big.  Luckily, taking it in, is taking it in.. no difference in price if it’s 1/2″ or 4 inches..  Mine will literally have to be brought in at least 6″ up and down the dress…
