Defintely a safe bet, altering by 2 sizes i think is pretty standard. I would also say that most times, even with the best intentions our weightloss efforts never go as planned so it is better so err on the side of caution. It is a lot easier to take a dress in than let it out 🙂

I was in your shoes back in January and I went against everyone’s advice and bought a smaller size. While it worked for me – it caused me a LOT of stress and worry and everyone advised against it. In the end I could have just altered and saved myself loads of worry – just take it in!

The store is right. Order it the size you are now and have it altered. Any dress can go down two dress sizes (so 4 numbers, like 8 to 4), but very few dresses can be let out. Also, everyone should have their dress altered when it comes in anyway, and whether they take it in 2 inches or 5, the cost is almost always the same, so you’ll be spending that money on alterations anyway.
