How do wedding dress sizes compared to regular sizes?
Bridal sizing isn’t like typical street wear sizing. While you might be a size 4-6 in jeans, you’re in fact a bridal size 8- 10, and if you’re a size 14-16, you’re likely a 18-20.

Is it better to buy a dress too big or too small?
7. When in doubt, size up. When you just don’t know what size to order or if you think you’re in between sizes, it’s always a safe bet to go a size up. It’s much easier to work with a garment that’s slightly bigger than one that’s too small, if you don’t want to return it.
What if my wedding dress is too big?
If the dress is too big and not fitting your body how you want it to, still remember not to panic. Dafra recommends adding some bra cups to fill out the bust area if it’s too large in your chest area. You can also find a beautiful sash to cinch your waist if it’s too roomy at your midsection.
How many inches are between dress sizes?
From size 10 to 16, there is a 1-1/2-inch difference between sizes. From size 16 to size 18 and above into women’s sizes, there is a 2-inch difference; sizing at other retailers may differ.
