- Wedding: August 2014
Ok, so I have found my dream dress and wanted to purchase it from a private seller as I am on a budget and my wedding is in August! The dress is Isis by Wtoo…strapless sweetheart lace over charmeuse sheath dress.
I unfortunately bought one that was already altered/worn and ended up being too small. I should have listened to my gut, but the owner’s measurements were pretty close to mine so I went with it. That dress was a size zero. It did zip, but it was really tight and uncomfortable. It was also too short, so diet/exercise/seamstress will be no help (she said she is 1 inch shorter than me and wore 5″ heels, so I’m confused why the dress is too short even when I’m barefoot, but that is neither here nor there).
So now I have the option of possibly ordering a 4 or an 8 that I’ve found online.
My measurements are 34/25/39.
The Wtoo size chart puts a 4 at 35/27/37.5,
and an 8 at 37/29/39.5.
The owner of the 4 said her hip meaurement taken at the bridal salon was 38.5, and she sent me a picture of her wearing it and was able to pinch a sizeable amount on the side.
Do you think it is safe for me to order the 4? My concern with the 8 is that the top would have to be taken in significantly- bust to a size 2 and waist to a size 0. Is that too much to take in?? The 0 DID zip up, so is it unreasonable that a 4 would fit comfortably?
(And in other news, if you might be interested in purchasing a size 0 dress, please contact me, haha).
