auroraocelot : That’s just the way it is when you are trying on gowns. Bridal shops have to purchase a size that will fit a larger selection of people. If you think purchasing a gown is expensive for you, imagine having to stock those expensive gowns for a store. They have to decide whether to carry one gown in many sizes or many gowns in one size. It’s better to have a variety of gowns for brides to see.
I know it’s hard to get a good idea, but clipping and holding the gown in position is the best way to get an idea.

Beautiful dress! I think because it’s such a flowy style, it’s one of the “safer” ones in terms of ordering a size you’ve never tried on before. There will be likely less skirt, but also the bodice length will shrink so make sure that will fit. I think otherwise just budget for alternations xoxox

Hmm… well. In some pictures, it looks a lot more full than in others. Is this a dress they can order in lengths? I remember when I was considering a WTOO dress, they had the option of buying a shorter dress for more money from us. It looks like that center piece of lace will need to be moved.
