Depending on the particular gown style BHLDN gowns go up to size 12-16.  From my experience wedding gowns usually run a size or two large than your street size.  Try not to stress it. Your dress shopping experience will be a learning experience and you will be able to better determine your size once you start trying gowns on.

Don’t stress about it!! Even if the dress is smaller, they can pin it so you get a good idea of how it will look.

I got a BHLDN dress and their store carried size 14 to try on. You’ll be great!

It’s going to be fine! I was a 12-14 street size (about the same height as you) when trying on dresses, and they had plenty for me to try. Don’t get discouraged if the dress is too small, most of the dresses are available in a larger size. Their SAs are great and will be able to recommend based on your body type as well!

I just dressed shopped at BHLDN a few weeks ago – they carried sizes 4 and 12 to try on. I think this is the case for all BHLDN stores.
