crzyorchid:  The differences between misses and womens (plus) sizes are that women’s sizes are cut with deeper arm holes, lower bust lines, and a larger waist than misses’. Consequently women’s sizes are approximately one size larger than comparable misses sizes.

Exactly as julies1949 said.

If I had a choice, I would much rather get a plus size dress than a dress that comes in a larger size. But I have a large chest so bust lines are a huge issue for me

Yeah it’s mostly a bit of a more generous waist, more generous in the bust, and deeper arm holes. My wedding dress was available up to size 26, which is what I had to order it in because I’ve got linebacker shoulders and a GG cup, but wear a size 18 pants. Even my seamstress said if I hadn’t needed the extra space in the shoulders and bust, I could’ve just gone with a size 22. They had to take in SO MUCH at the waist and hips, reset the arm holes, and reset the neckline. I think I ended up paying about $150 in alterations all together. Having it available in plus size would’ve saved me the cost of resetting the arms and neck.
