I have also tried on and fallen in love with this dress! Same concerns though. The sample was the size I would order and it was restricting; although I was able to step up/down the platform and sit. I’ve tried on more dresses since and nothing compares but I too am conflicted if I want to feel that restricted on my wedding day. It’s an absolutely gorgeous dress though!!

Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful 🙁

From what I’ve read, other brides have felt the same way in this dress even if it was their correct size…

I bought Adalee because I absolutely fell in love with it.  It had everything I was looking for.  I tried on a sample size 10 and it was small but not awful.  However the sample had a hole ripped from the bottom of the corset to about the first lace tier at the bottom.  It was tight in the legs but not bad. 

I ordered a size 12 (I am a street size 10-12) as opposed to the 14 because the only part that measured a size 14 was my hip and it was only over by a half inch.  My bust and waist measured a 12 so I took a chance, trying to avoid having to alter the top down one whole size because of the corset construction, which probably would have cost a ton.  I just picked up my dress Saturday and when I tried it on, it fit like a glove.  A very, very tight glove!  I knew it would be tight, but the bottom where the “mermaid” part comes in to the thigh near the first layer of lace – lord, it was tight.  I could walk fine, but getting up and down a few stairs and the pedestal was work.  I had to kind of turn my leg to the side and put it over my other leg to get up.  Luckily, my wedding and reception are in the same place and there are no stairs to contend with! 

I’m not sure ordering a size 14 would have been much better – the consultant said it fit perfectly.  I need no alterations (YAY!)  Maybe it would be looser on someone with thinner thighs?  In all honesty, it is a ridiculously uncomfortable dress.  But it’s just so gorgeous, I couldn’t resist.  It’s only one day!  Hope this helps.  I have pics if you want.

@jldutzy79:  It WAS ridiculously uncomfortable, but the BEST decision I’ve ever made (besides saying yes to my hunny!) I just wore flats to offset it.  It was only 6 1/2 hours and worth every second 🙂

I had a few messages to post pics of me in the dress, so here they are.  I still love it even though its not a dress made for comfort.  I’m trying to lose a few lbs to see if that helps a bit.  I only have less than 4 months left!  I’m also going to see if a seamstress can create a vent on each side near the “seam” where the first layer starts on the bottom to allow a little more movement for my legs.  I’m 5’10” tall, and I’m wearing flats with it.  Street size 10-12 – purchase a size 12 gown. I also have to say, I don’t have the best pictures of me in it.  My Maid/Matron of Honor was taking a million pictures but I don’t have good straight-on shots.  This is the best one!

@jldutzy79:   You look amazing!!! and I love this dress!!!!!! I have an adalee too.. and I am a little worried about comfort (honestly I don’t remember it being uncomfy when I tried it on, but everyone brings it up so I’m going to pay more attention next time!). I plan on working with my seamstress as much as I can!
