    If you bought the dress at a nice, reputable shop they should have no problem taking it in and making it perfect. That is what they do. There are lots of dresses with lots of details, ruffles, beading, lacework etc and they all can be taken in.

    I would be worried about doing a size down since the dress would then have to be let out.  They usually don’t leave a lot of fabric in the seams for that.  I would do a size up, a good seamstress should be able to do the alterations without a problem.

    I think this is something to talk about with you bridal shop and see what they think.  Almost all dresses can be altered and if you are inbetween the 1.5 difference in sizes they would have to take it in a small amount and really fit it to your body perfectly.  I am guessing from the picture there is a seam that could be taken in by an experienced seamstress.  I would size up to make it fit perfectly and with less stress.  If you are worried though discuss with you shop and if they have alterations right there bring them into the discussion.

    Just read that you are from Australia. I would still order up and have it fitted perfectly to you.

    I would size up. What happens if you get the dress in the smaller size and can’t sit because its too tight?

    Many wedding dresses have a lot of important details, so I think any experienced seamstress will be able to take the dress in. Most wedding dresses are altered, so designers do keep that in mind too.

    I would go a size up, im here in oz also and ordered a allure from the states and went a size up and my dress maker is making it smaller , mine has very detailed lace and it was all hand unpicked to move the panels around, find a dress maker who makes wedding dresses not just a alteration place and it can be done, please order up a size ๐Ÿ™‚

    @LilianHarlow:  I purchased a Lazaro gown and I got a size 12 and its really big on me. However, I purchased a sample so I really didn’t have a choice. I probably would have been between an 8 and 10. Do you know your measurements?  Maybe I can compare mine to yours and give you a little input.
