Erko_1022:  For what it’s worth, I am a bridal size 10 and the sample of the dress that I ended up buying was a bridal size 4 and I was able to shimmy it over my booty. Miracles do happen, haha!

Consultants have a miraculous way of fitting people into samples. I am a street sizw 12/14 and the sample I tried on for my dress was a 6. It was clipped in the back and open, but I knew how it would fit. 

Unless the dress is ridiculously tight through the hips, which it isn’t, I looked it up, you should be fine.

Your post prompted me to look up the dress. Now I totally get your obsession with it.It is truly exceptional! Good luck locating one.

That is an absolutely gorgeous dress! I work in bridal and wanted to assure you that a capable consultant can make a sample work for (though it won’t fit perfectly!). Also, any boutique worth their salt should offer to put some (ideally all)of the money you paid to try the sample toward the cost of your dress. The store benefits by you trying the dress because they can talk to other customers about it and possibly take photos of it  to show other interested brides. The store might even realize they want to carry this style after seeing it in person. 

Best of luck!
