I had no difference between my street size and my wedding dress size (size 12).

PS – Did you know that size 11 is a juniors size?  So you’re comparing a junior’s street size to a women’s dress size ….

I’m a size 18ish in real life and I was able to fit into a size 16 and should have ordered that size but they ordered it in an 18.

I am a street size 4/6 depending on the dress.

Was right on the cusp of a size 10 wedding dress. We ordered the 12 just in case. Had to take it in at the bust & waist.

Here’s the finished product.

I’m normally a size 4 or 6 in real life, and I had to order my dress in a size 10. The size difference is really annoying, but it fits almost perfectly.

@Theresa90405: That dress looks so freaking fun and amazing. Just a random p.s. 🙂

I’m a 2 in real life, and I think my dress was a 6, or maybe even an 8 when we ordered it.  It fits like a glove too!

It really varies, depending on the dress manufacturer. I think some are changing their sizing to be less discouragingly far off from our street sizes. When trying on dresses, I found David’s Bridal and Alfred Angelo to be pretty true-to-size. My gown is a Venus, and it’s a size 6 although I usually wear a petite 4 or a regular 2.

I’m a real life size 16 and the size that would fit me currently is a 20 (i ordered an 18 bc i’m in the process of losing). 

Honestly it didn’t bother me at all bc I was totally aware going in that I’d have to order up a few sizes. I decided prior that I wanted a dress that looked awesome and I wasn’t even going to look at the number.

I’m a street size 2 or 4, and my dress is a size 10. I don’t have any good pictures of it because it’s being altered (neckline and hem only, the size is a perfect fit), but it’s a Pronovias. Here’s another Pronovias I tried on (my second choice dress), also a size 10, which also fit perfectly.

I got mine from David’s, and it’s actually very true to size! I ordered one size up from what I usually wear, and it’s a bit big, so I would have been fine with ordering my street size!
