I need the hive’s help! My little cousin will be my jr. bridesmaid. She is 10 years old. We were going to order her a 16 in the flowergirl sizes, but found out today the dress she will be wearing only comes in sizes up to 7. Her measurements are Chest: 32, Waist 30. The lady at the dress shop says she needs a size 10(regular adult size) I just cannot see ordering a size 10 for my 10 year old cousin! She’s not a really chunky little girl! What do you smart ladies think we should do?? TIA!!!

Well the sizing chart for Alfred Angelo says a size 30″ waist is a size 10. The chest size 32″ is a size 0, but the waist measurement for that would be 25″. Here is a link:
I would go by waist and then get the top tailored to fit.

we had to do the same thing for my sister’s wedding. my youngest sister who was 8 at the time had to order a size 8 in ladies then had the dress altered to fit her just right. it was an ALFRED ANGELO dress too. the woman at the dress shop knows what she’s talking about. hope everything works out for you and your cousin!

Thanks for your help ladies! We decided to order her a size 6… She tried on some of her older sister’s dresses and we felt that was the best way to go!
