Inbetween sizes???

For my wedding dress I measure inbetween sizes. So my bust and hips had me at a size 10....and my waist has me at a 12. I'm a pretty average size girl, normally wear about 6/8 in pants. They suggested I go with the 12. But now I am scared it will be to big and I will have to pay a lot to get it altered. BUT then it would be horrible if the dress was to small. whats a girl to do???

    Have you tried on dresses from that designer in a 10 and 12?

    No, they only samples they had were a size 6 in that designer. and although I was able to actually get the dress on, i was stuffed in there. Couldnt move

    Go with the larger size- it will be less to alter it down than to alter it up or have to get a new dress because yours is too small.

    Order according to your largest measurement.

    Order the size dress that fits the biggest part of you.  If your waist measures a size 12 then order the size 12.  You do not want to order a size 10 and then it be too tight and uncomfortable in your waist area, or worse not fit at all.

    It is a lot easier to take in a dress then it is to let one out.

    Also, even though you may wear a 6/8 in regular clothes this is a wedding dress and their sizes run most likely the size 12 is actually a 6/8 in reality.

    It will be so much easier to have the dress taken in than to try to figure out what to do if it does not fit, I would go with the larger size and save the stress.

    Bridal sizes are wack. I was between two sizes as well (6/8) and I normally wear a 4. I'm glad I went with the larger size. It turned out that the 8 fits me perfectly in the waist and hips and it just needs to be taken in a bit in the bust.

    Definitely order the larger size.  My BFF is super tiny up top but has hips - according to the measurements, she was a size 0 at the bust, 4 at her waist and a 12 at her hips.  She ordered the 12 and they were able to alter the rest of the dress.
