I am going to order my dress today. If I hope to have it in time for my wedding, I pretty much need to.
When they measured me. My measurements fell into the following categories.
Bust- size 2
Waist- size 2
Hips- Size 12.
Yep. I am a true pear shape. The sample I had it on was a 4… and it zipped up and everything fine. It was obviously tight in the hips but they had to use clips for the top of the dress because it was too big.
Normally, they say do the size at the biggest part of your body but I literally cant do a 12 because they cant take it in to a size 2 at the top without compromising the fit of the dress. Even the lady said that I should ignore that rule in my case. I usually wear a 4-6 in dresses and a size 8 in jeans, a size 6 in pants.
I feel like the 4 almost fit. I mean it was a bit tight. Should I go with a 6 or play it safe and go with an 8?
