Mine is a trumpet style but I tried on a 10, 14, and ordered a 16 which is now swimming on me, thank god! I’m a street size 8!! All the dresses fell in the same place. The trumpet part was in the same place. At the salons I went to they said that unless you are very short they should fall pretty much the same way. If you are very short sometimes designers have hollow to hem, which means they will make the dress according to your measurements.

I have a dropped waist ballgown. They took a bazillion measurements in the salon, including the length of my torso, so the bodice still falls at the same place just above my hips.

I unfortunately didn’t think to take photos at my first fitting, unfortunately. Otherwise I would show you before and after.

I wouldnt sweat it. The bridal consultants know what theyre doing, plus you can always get it taken in and hemmed.
