My dress was definitely NOT true to size (the dress I ordered was 8 sizes bigger than my street size and 2 sizes bigger than my couture size), but it was VERY true to measurements (to determine your ML size, they will measure you and then order the dress that is closest to your measurements).  I found that the measurements were a tiny bit generous (my waist was exactly the size of the dress measurement, but the dress was just a wee bit big when I got it), so don’t worry if you are right on the line of a size.

Also – very important note:  don’t worry about the size – it’s just a number.  Go with what fits. Smile

I’m a 8-10 in regular clothes, 12 in the ML dress.

I wear 18/20 in street clothes and I ordered my Mori Lee in a 22. When I was measured at the store, I was told I was between two sizes, 22 and 24. But the sample was a 22 and it fit like a glove.

What Mori Lee styles are you interested in?

Beautiful! I tried it on πŸ™‚ I have HUGE hips though and I felt really self-conscious. Such an amazing dress though, very light too.

@UpstateCait: The Julieta 3053 is my dress! I normally wear a size 12 jeans, but have a large bust. I ordered it in a 16. I tried on an 18 sample, and it was just a bit too big. I love that dress though! I can’t wait for it to come in.

@pinkb: That’s exciting! Hope your fitting goes well πŸ™‚ Has your Fiance seen the dress? Mine refuses to look, but I guess it’s more fun that way! I’m kind of worried he won’t think it’s wedding-y enough though.

@youhavemyheart: Mine also refuses to look at it, he got upset that I even took it out of the box when it arrived. He does not want to know anything about it, he wants to be completely surprised the day of so it is hiding in the spare closet. I am a little worried he won’t like it because he hates when things are not symmetrical,because of the beading only on one side. But I love it so I know he will love it too.

πŸ™‚ I wonder if the guys will even notice! lol, they always say guys don’t care about shoes or jeans or anything…

Fiance is so funny, he keeps saying he won’t cry but everyone’s betting he does. Do you think your hubby-to-be will get teary-eyed when he sees you?

@caitmarae: sorry to threadjack!
