I’m almost exactly the same measurements as you and half an inch shorter. I haven’t got my dress yet but have tried on everything from an 18 to a 8 that have fitted. Last one was a sophia tolli size 10 fitted like a dam glove. Do you plan to loose more or stay as you are? If one fits perfectly and one is too big then i think at any weight one of them is going to need to be altered. So aim to fit in one and alter the other. Maybe fit in the one that would be the hardest to alter!

hellokittybride15:  5’10” I was 170 lbs at my wedding and 41-34-43.

I wore a size 14 Pronovias that had a fitted bodice.

Hmm if it can’t be altered i would question them saying it can be! I’d have thought altering that beading would be super expensive! I wish all dresses came with a cost of alterations attached. The dress i quite like i’m put off because alterations will cost a bomb! 

Stick a corset under the lace up dress you can get a few inches at least!

We have very similar measurments! I’m an inch shorter, 175 pounds and 39-28-41. I fit in a size 14 Jasmine Bridal perfectly. Bridal gown sizes are so odd!!!

I’m 5′ 10″, around 145 lbs, and measurements were 36-27.5-40 when I had my dress altered. I ordered my dress in size 10 for my hips, but had to take in the bust and waist significantly. My dress was a Jenny Yoo, which runs close to street size.
