A UK size 6 is generally a 10-12 US size. More likely a 10, but in my experience its just a bit bigger than a 10.

The previous conversion is the wrong way around. I’m a UK size 10 and that equates to a US size 6 (dependant on designer/style, etc). I bought my gown in the UK and ordered a size 8 which excited me as it sounded smaller than my street size 10, but it was actually a US 8 which is a UK 12! 

If you are ordering a UK size 6 then that’s tiny and about a US size 2. The US size 10 dress that you tried on was a standard sample size equivalent to a size 14 UK. It’s quite common to order a size larger than your street size.

I am American but lived in the UK for a while when I was in college. UK size numbers are bigger than American size numbers. I wear an American size 4, and when I bought clothes in the UK, I don’t remember the exact size I bought, but it was bigger than a 4. I think maybe an 8 or a 10.

If you’re a UK size 6, you’re probably a 0-2 in American sizes

ETA: Just check a dress I bought in the UK and it is a size 8, so you’re probably a size 2 in American clothes 🙂
