Above is a link to the dress I want.
i tried it on in a size 8 and it was slightly too big.
a size 6 would possibly be perfect
but could I possible fix into a size 4????
It has a corset back which gives me a little more wiggle room.
The only reason I am wondering about a size 4 is because it’s pretty much the only size option I have for this dress. I only have 7 1/2 weeks until my wedding. I had ordered orgininally ordered a knockoff since I didn’t have time to order from Maggie Sottero. But they totally messed up the dress.
ANY HELP WOULD BE FANTASTIC!

I’m confused, why don’t you order a size 6? It sounds like that would be the best choice?

Hm. Was the 8 loose everywhere? If it was snug anywhere I would not risk going down 2 sizes.
I might go with a size 4 if I knew there was enough seams to let it out.
I’m not too familiar with corset back so I don’t know how much extra wiggle room it would give you.
Here’s a labe size 8/street size 6!
It sounds like to me that she is trying to buy one preowned with her wedding so close. And the only sizes she can find are 4.

look up the measurements for maggie sottero. i think it depends on how close you are, and also the seam allowance.

When I ordered my dress a few weeks ago, I was told that a corset back allows you one size up and one size down of wiggle room. So, according to what I was told, if you’d ideally be ordering a 6, you should still be able to get away with a 4. I don’t have any actual experience with this, but my bridal consultant seemed pretty confident about it.

You should be fine with a 4, the dress opens up on the hips and you’ll have room there, then the corset will help out your bust. A 4 and 6 are only off an inch on every measurement on maggie’s site.

@DeathByDesign: I don’t have time to order a dress. the soonest I could get it would be July and my wedding is in June.
@Gerbera: There were no snug parts on the 8.
unfortunately the size 8/6 is Diamond white and I need white. (my wedding is a Black & White wedding and I don’t want to look dirty)

What is your regular clothing size?
My wedding dress was two sizes larger than my regular street clothing size (regular a 0 and took a size 2 wedding dress). It is also a corset which i think should allow enough room to go up or down a size. Sounds like a gamble so close to your wedding. Have you thought of trying on dresses in a store and trying to find something off the rack that fits you? Good luck.

Take a look at their size chart and then order the size that best suits your measurements. The actual dress will be a bit tighter than the sample of the same size

I went in and tried on a similar one in size 6 and had room to spare. She measured me and double checked everything.
The size 4 will fit!!!!!!!!!!!!!
