I’m in almost the exact same boat- I bought a Maggie Sottero Catarina dress for May 2011, and I did order the size 8. I’ve dropped about 8 lbs since then and want to drop another 10-15, but the consultant told me that it’s so much easier to take a dress in than to let it out, so order the largest size you’d possibly need and then trust the seamstress 🙂

Good luck with your weight loss too (although with your measurements, height, weight etc- I’m sure you look beautiful just as you are!)

I have the Summer and I ordered a size 10.  I tried on a sample size 12 and it was loose in the bust but fit throughout the rest but she told me to get a 10.  I’m 5’5 too but about 150lbs and I want to lose about 5-10 lbs before March.  From trying on my dress I’d say if I lose 5-10 lbs I’ll definitely still fit in the 10.  I would say you should be fine since it’s a corset but may have to get it altered a little since it was already kind of big in the bust.  I hope this helps.

Im wearing the Summer Royale too! Congrats on picking a great dress. You may want to check with your seamstress I have recently lost about twenty pounds and may be ordering a second Summer Royale because my seamstress seems to think because of the delicate material it may be a bit of a problem to alter the dress too much.

Since it’s a corset dress, I think that it’s forgiving (adjustable) to a range of sizes. You should buy the size dress that fits now (like the size 8 that fits), so if you lose 10-15 pounds, the corset can be tightened to the smaller size. Worst case scenario (or really best case, depending on how you look at it) is that you will need to take the dress in. Size 8 in a wedding dress in like size 6 in regular dresses, so I think that you probably already look great!

@Stiz: The bridal store ordered the Maggie Sottero Michelle in a size 6 for me. When they measured me…I was 36 27 38 and I am 5’4″. I weighed 125 at that time.

Hope that helps
