I am so confused to the size dress to order for my Bridesmaid or Best Man. Its D479 by alfred sung. The size chart has me totally confused. The Bridesmaid or Best Man always wears size 12 US size in any garment she puts on her. Be it a top, skirt or dress. I cant decide how accurate the chart is. The Bridesmaid or Best Man carries weight but is not a very large person. She is quite narrow, has narrow hips and a very small bust. She is also about 5 ft 5. She carries weight on her tummy and thighs allright. She could even squeeze into a us 10 if she has to. Special underwear also reduces her tummy. From looking at the chart her hips and bust are about a size 14 but she has a 39 inch waste so Id be looking to order a size 22w. This does not make sence to me. How can a dress go up so many sizes so have no idea what size to order from the site.

You should have the bridesmaid go to a bridal boutique and get measured. That way the person can advise her what size dress she should order.

When she measured her waist did she measure at her natural waist or around her largest part? A 39 waist to me sounds like she measured around the widest part of her stomach and that is not accurate. She should bend side to side from the waist and where the crease is should be wear she measures – it will be approximately 2 inches above her belly button. I feel like if she does this, she will likely get a much smaller waist size measurement that is in line with the other measurements….

I agree that she should get professionally measured – if you’re ordering online, a tailor/seamstress will do those measurements for her! If ordering with a bridal salon, have them do her measurements. Then she should order for her largest section and order in. That did sound like an awfully huge difference in size, so I’d be wary of that, as you are!
