@Legallyblondiebride:  I was watching a SYTTD BM this weekend, and this happened.. a girl was told by the consultant to order a 10 and she insisted she was not a 10, and ordered a 4!! By some miracle of God it fit when they came in.. I thought she was nuts for ordering not just 1 size smaller, but serveral sizes smaller.. then I didn’t understand how she fit into it.. she never mentioned losing any weight or anything.. it was all very odd…

I’m honestly baffled by people who do this. I’ve lost 45 pounds, semi recently (slow process), and my friend told me to get dresses for all the weddings we have to go to this summer NOW but in a smaller size since I’ll have lost enough weight by then. I told her absolutely no way. I won’t pressure myself to get down and be disappointed if I haven’t lost enough weight. It’s never a good idea to order a smaller size expecting to be smaller, ladies!!

This seems like a pretty obvious case. If she really didn’t want to order the size she fit in, one size down should have been enough of a goal.4 sizes down is a really big jump. i’m surprised they let her do that.

I actually was in the opposite situation. I got measured for my MOH’s wedding about 5 months before it was to take place. They had me order a size that I didn’t think fit me but they told me it would be fine, and I had heard so much about not ordering down a size because you can always take it in. they wouldn’t listen to me. (this was at house of brides, btw). When it came in, it was falling off me, and i hadn’t lost any weight or anything. I had to have it taken in twice just so that it would fit right. The alterations cost almost as much as the dress itself. If i had just been able to order the size i thought i needed, i would have saved a TON of money. i’m also pretty sure that when i ordered it, i ordered a size smaller than what they recommended, but when it came in i saw that it was the original size.

also, it ended up looking goofy just because the proportions were off. i didn’t have the bust to fill that size of a dress, so it just hit me all funny and weird, and the cups looked so big. it was pretty terrible.
