I know this is 5months later and you’ve probably since figured it out, but in case anyone else needs to know:


Bridal sizes are NOT equal to street sizes. I tried on (and fell in love with) an Amsale dress, and I am a “street” size 10/12 (so 31-32″ waist), meaning that’s what I wear in regular clothes. The Amsale dress was a bridal size 18, and was just about perfect. I have also tried on bridesmaids dresses and found a 16 is about right. If you order your sister a bridal size 12, that will be around a street size 6-8. Don’t get caught up in the number — no one’s going to see your label, but they WILL see if the dress doesn’t fit.
