I also ordered an Allure dress. My street size is a 0 and they ordered me a size 4……Ive always heard that bridal sizes were bigger then street sizes….I would call your bridal store and tell them your concerns and see what they have to say….Or see if you can find a number to contact Allure and ask them as well 🙂

It depends on the dress/designer. Typically you have to go up a size or two in a wedding gown. I’m a street size 16 and had to buy a 20.

i think it also depends on your body shape and the style of dress.  my dress was ordered in a size smaller than my pants size because it’s a ballgown and my hips/butt are a lot bigger than my waist/top, so being that it’s not going to be fitted to my hips, that measurement doesn’t matter so much.  Thus my wedding dress size is smaller than my pant size.
