belizabeth01 :  the only reason I would think they would order you a size that different would be maybe if you have a larger bust…that would make sense since they can take everything else in.

crazybridejess :  thank you for responding. its actually my waist that measures to a size 10 they say. the rest of me measures to a 6/8 by the chart. but in my sample size 10 the waist was in no way close to tight! I cant remember if i mentioned but a maggie dress in size 6 fit me perfectly. my store had no smaller essense dresses for me to even try and they were getting annoyed that i wanted an 8 saying it could be too small. they ordered it 2 days ago so im not even sure what can be done now. i called my store and they assured me that it can all be altered but i just feel that the proportions of the dress will be too large. its a body hugging fit & flare so the fit is so important!

Chaitea :  I typically wear a street size 8, sometimes a 6 in dresses (typically 8-10 in jeans, my hips are my widest). I was told to order a size 12 in my Stella York (owned by E of A, same sizing chart for all of their designers) gown. I would double check and be on the safe side if I were you!


Oops, didn’t see how old this post was. Glad it worked out for you, OP!
