Hi everyone. I am considering buying a mermaid-style Carolina Herrera dress in a size 12 and having it altered to fit. (It is my dream dress but out of my budget under normal circumstances.) Does anyone have a sense of CH bridal sizes? I believe I am actually a CH size 6 or 8– my measurements are 31-24-32, and the dress would require I take about 4-5 inches off at the bust, waist and hips. How big is too big to have it altered well? Thanks so much for your help!

I tried on some caroline herreras at a kleinfeld sample sale- I usually wear a size 8 in jeans/dresses/etc and a size 10 fit me well. Good luck!

when I got my dress, the saleslady said that normally they can alter up to 2 sizes without altering the look of the gown. I’m a 4, but the dress size I got was a 6. You might want to check with a seamstress to see what they say about it. They would probably know best.
