Does anyone have any experience with Pronovias’ dress sizing? In December of last year, I bought the Pronovias Fedra for my upcoming wedding. As with most sample sizes, the dresses I tried on were all size 10 or bigger. They clipped the back to hold the dress up so I could get an idea of what it would look like fitted on me. They took my measurements and ordered me a size 4 – which is the smallest size the company makes. Normally, I’m a street size 00 so it made me sort of nervous to get a 4. They assured me that since it’s a Spanish company, the sizes actually run smaller. I know alterations will also help. I just don’t have too much time as my dress is coming in very close to the wedding date so I wanted to manage my expectations and am asking anyone out there to see if the pronovias dresses ran small/big/true to size. The length should be fine as my height is average, but my frame is smaller so I wanted to see if any Pronovias brides could give me some of their experiences. Thanks.

I’m a street size 2 and I was told I fit right into a size 4 when I got measured for a Pronovias. I ultimately didn’t go with that dress so can’t tell how it would’ve fit. They can do alterations easily in a couple weeks unless the dress has excessive beading, which I don’t usually see on Pronovias dresses. I’m sure you’ll be fine.

@jostonusa: Just curious, did you get your dress in yet? I’m also really small and the Pronovias (and pretty much all other companies) Sz 4 measurements in their size chart were way off my actual measurements. How did it turn out?

I know that this question was not directed at me, but I have a San Patrick by Pronovias…I am assuming the sizing is the same. Normally I am a 0 or 00. I ordered a size four and after the first fitting…it fits perfect! Also, my dress has a bra-like closure on the inside to make sure it fits!
Hope this helps!

@Puggie: Wow, the 4 translates to a US 0-00? Thanks!

Yeah, my dress is a Pronovias and my salon told me they have Spanish sizing which is different. I am normally a street size 6 and ordered a 12 in the dress! The sample they had in store for all Pronovias dresses at my salon was a Spanish size 14. I may have been able to get away with a 10 but didn’t want to risk it.
