I purchased my dream gown yesterday, it is Lazaro 3207. I’m so in love with it!
But here’s the dilemma…
I tried this dress on at two different shops before I decided it is the one. The shop I purchased it from carried a sample size 10 that I tried on and fit perfectly. However, the previous shop I went to, the sample was very large on me. I called to find out what size it was just for reference and was told that their sample was also size 10. I am worried and confused as how can the same size fit so differently between the two stores? In addition, the seamstress convinced me to order it in a size 12, even though 10 was a perfect fit, as she stated that samples tend to be stretched out.
Its not too late to change my order… But Im so lost, did I order the right size?
I know that too big is always better than too small, but I’m worried that it may be 2 sizes big at this point.
Any girls with this gown can offer some help?

Samples ARE stretched out and perhaps one dress shop has had it for longer and therefore is more stretched out than the other dress shop. 12 is probably right – you can always take it in.

The dress sizes were much different, I dont believe its simpy from being stretched out. I am suspecting that one of them is not really a 10. Which makes it very possible that I’m ordering 2 sizes too big, making me sad and worried 🙁
One of the main things I loved about this dress is the fit, and given I may have a very short time between the day my dress arrives and my wedding, I may not be able to have it altered as much as I would like 🙁

Didn’t you get measured at the salon you bought it at before deciding on the size to order? That should be your guide. The salon should have had a size chart to reference when you were measured. If they did, and you selected the size to order based on a comparison of your measurements to the chart, you should be fine.

This is the sizing chart… For reference I am 32/25.5/36 and I ordered an 8. I was also told the samples are stretched out a bit.
