everyone complains about their dress sizes begin 2-3 sizes larger than street size, but in my case it's ridiculous. My clothes (that I currently wear) are between 6-10, with pants always being 6, and blouses/shirts 8 or 10. But my dress is....18!!!!!! The store said that they go by the largest measurement, which in my case is my bust (I'm a 36C... so big, but not huge!), and that the waist and hips would be too large for sure and would need to be fitted. Does anyone have advice? Can this be possible? I don't care so much about the number in size but I'm wondering if I should insist on a 16 at least to reduce alterations?! Any ideas? My dress is Private Label by G - strapless but no corset top.
