A11eycat:  I’m sorry but I find your comment very rude! I am admittedly preoccupied with my weight and have been for six months! I have two weeks till my wedding and am very proud to say that I have lost 15lbs! Regardless of your size, maintaining your weight is not easy! Im very happy with the way I look! Btw my dress is a size 10 and my street size is between a 4-6.

burstingbee39:  most brides watch their weight leading up to their wedding however most don’t only start threads about weight, size and weight loss. OP has 13 posts and most are about size or weight loss. That seems excessive to me. If you find my opinion rude, so be it.

Congratulations on your weight loss but what exactly does that have to do with anything? I’m not saying anything about weight loss. I’m saying that obsessing over your weight and size must be exhausting.. if you’re happy with the way you look, should it matter what size you are or if you happen to gain one or two pounds over the next two weeks?

We are the same size by the way. I went with a 10 to accommodate for my chest. I didnt want to feel pressured to lose weight by ordering an 8 and preferred to order the 10 and alter down if needed.

Street size between 4 and 6, I bought a size 12 dress (sample) and will be altering it to a better fit.

Street size 4-6. My measurements suggested a size 8, but I ordered a size 10 dress because the 8 felt too tight for me to sit down in it.

im a street size 2 but ordered a size 8 because my hips could fit a 6 or 8 based on measurements and i went with the bigger one because i’d rather have to alter it than worry about it being too tight!

I think my shop must size differently than all of yours, I wear 4-6 in street size but in my dress I have a 3 size split! 0 on the boobs, 2 on the waist and 8 in the butt! So maybe every designer is different? Thanks mom for the thunder thighs! I’ve been at peace with my pear thighs for years now but those split size fees were not a welcome surprise :/.

I wear a street size 2 but have fit comfortably in most 8’s that I’ve tried on (some 6’s depending on the designer since they’re all different).

That said, my bust is probably a 0 or 2, so the size I order will be solely dependent on whichever fits my badonk, and the rest will be altered accordingly 😉

Bridal size 0 – my dress is Maggie Sottero.. I have no idea what street size that is since I thought I would be ordering a 4!

Mori Lee size 12 – it was pretty close to my actual measurements. The Mori Lee should be 38-29.5-41.5 and my measurements are 37-29-42. It’s a ball gown which is why we’re ignoring my big butt 🙂

I’m a UK size 10-12 which is a US 6-8 I believe.

misskitty90: Wow I find this really interesting that a bunch of bee’s are smaller in street size but larger in their wedding dress. My dress is a size 6 and most dresses I buy are a 6 as well… lol 

I wonder if this has to do with the brand of dress? Mine is a Pronovias.

I’m a street size 4 and a 12 was ordered, but it’s huge on me.  Hoping it can be altered down appropriately eek!
