Looking for some input from you ladies who have rocked Lazaro gowns on the big day! If the label of the gown is a size 10, what it the most it can be let out without compromising the gown? And, also, a Lazaro 10 is realistically equal to what street size? I’ve always heard Lazaro runs smaller but no one around me carries them, so I’ve never been able to try one on!
I have wishy-washy dress regret & found a steal on my (dream!) Lazaro gown (preowned), so I’m just curious before I jump the gun. I don’t want to spend money on a second gown only to not be able to have it altered.

@MsAmandaAnn: From working in a bridal boutique I can tell you that most bridal gowns can be let out about 2 inches. I am wearing a Lazaro gown. They talked me into ordering a size 12 and it’s huge on me, but I have lost about 17lbs. I would say my dress is probably closer to an 8 now that it is altered and in street clothes I wear a 2 or 4. I hope this helps.

I ended up ordering a 2, and had to size mine down to a 0, which is what i am normally.

So, I should expect the label size to be about 2 sizes larger than street size? Like, the 10 would be more equivalent to 6?
When you say 2 inches is what it can usually be let out, how many dress sizes would that be equal to? Sorry, I’m not in the know with wedding gown alterations.

I tried on a Lazaro sample size 10, which I was told was the equivalent to a street size 6. I am a street size 4/6, and I think the sample fit well, if a bit loose.

According to the Lazaro size chart the different between sizes is 1.5 inches. So the dress could probably be let out to be 1 size larger or a little over 1 size larger. Does that make sense?

My daughter is street size 2 and the salon had her order a size 6. It hasn’t come in yet so I can’t help with the actual fit.
