Yay for choosing the Milana!  It is what I will be wearing in 36 days!!!!  I agree sleeves are the only way to go.  Wish I could help but I probably wont sell mine when I am done and I am a size 10.  Suggestions for when you get it though on how to have it bustled.  (I have seen people bustle this dress in pics that look horrible.)  Have your seamstress snip the connection between that satiny layer underneath and the beaded net on top just in the back.  Do a three point bustle just on the satiny part and let the net lay on top.  It is lovely because the bustle is slightly obscured by the top layer and it doesn’t interrupt all the hard work put into beading it. I will post pics of what I am talking about soon after my next fitting.  Hope this helps though.  Good luck.

Size 0 in a wedding gown?  Have you gotten fitted because I’m a street size 4, and I think most gowns (not sure about MS) run bigger.

@BellaDee:  Agreed they do run bigger.  The Maggie Sottero Milana I ordered in a size 10 but I am really more like a 6, sometimes an 8 in conventional clothing.

I would get measured first.

I don’t know who “she” is, but I would use the Maggie size chart, and order larger in case.

I would get fitted first, for sure…go try on any type of maggie in that type of style, even if they don’t have that one…and see what size you are close to.

 

It doesn’t matter how much you weigh, they go buy the largest part of your body

@sheilald9 I am waiting to receive my MS Milana gown that I was fitted for.  I was fitted as a size 0.  I’m 110 pounds 5′ 7″, sounds like we have the same body type.  I also have a very tiny frame, as one poster said, they measure by the largest part of your body, if I remember right my hips are 33, waist 24, boobs 32.  

 

One thing they did tell me as far as alterations go, they said since it’s a corset back you can adjust it without having to alter it so gaining or losing weight is not much of an issue.
