You could always get alterations, but honestly a half an inch with a corset will be just fine.

My dress was 3 sizes bigger then my regular size and it fits great I also have a corset/maggie dress… Buying a dress online can be tricky, im sure you will have to get alterations anyway so i think a bigger size would be better because if you get it too small theirs nothing they can really do about that whereas getting it a little bigger can be dealt with.

You can definitely get away with a 4. My bust was bigger than the rest of my body, and my dress fits perfectly. Half an inch won’t be a problem ๐Ÿ™‚

I wore a Maggie with a corset back. I am a size 0 or 2 in street clothes and my dress is a 4. It fit perfectly with no alterations (other than hemming). I am definitely an hourglass shape and the corset made it perfectly adjustable for my measurements. Good luck!

@kscaggs:  Hi Kscaggs, could you tell me where you bought your Maggie? I plan to buy it online, but am a little nervous about the measurements. My mom is pretty good with the measurements though, having sown some simple dresses before. Thanks!
