pants size v/s dress size
how do you go about, figuring ur actual size?? what size is ur pants/jeans? what size is ur dress???

I wear 5-7 size jeans and my dress is a size 10. I got it 4 months after I had my son, just wondering how many sizes it will have to be taken in..

Wedding dresses usually run small. It may need to be taken in a little bit, but you won't know until you get closer to the wedding date and finish losing the baby weight.

I wear a 5-7 in jeans, but because I'm top heavy my dress is a size 10 or maybe a 12 even.

My jeans size/dress size are the same, actually. but I have to buy bigger jeans because I'm so tall. If I don't, it looks like im wearing flood pants.

Jeans 7/9, Skirts 6/8 but my dress was a 16! I am very top heavy though (38DDD) so I needed those puppies to fit comfortably and worried about the rest of the dress during alterations. I think in the end they did ok with taking it in, in the waist.

Typically your wedding dress size will be 2-3 sizes larger than your street size. That said, think about your dress style and your body type. If your dress is fitted on top, but has a full skirt, your pants size won't matter much. If it helps, my sister ordered her BM dress while nursing, and it was a 12. Now it's HUUUGE, she probably should have gotten an 8.

If you wear a 5/7 that is the equivalent to a 6/8 usually or 28/29 jean size. I vary in this range depending on the way the designers cut their pants. Some cut really small so I have to go up a size and others cut bigger so I go down a size, and my hip or butt area is my problem zone for sure.
For dresses you can't go by your pant size as they are totally different. Dresses don't have a rise aka in-seam. I am going to say that a 10 was the right size at the time of the order and you will have to alter it down a size or more if you are lucky. LOL.

I am 5'8". When I bought my dress in April of this year- I bought a size 10 off the rack and it fit perfectly. I was 160. I wore a 10-11 in jeans a med/large top. Since then I have lost almost 20 lbs and have had to have it taken in THREE times. I would WAIT til the last possible moment. Every time I lost 6-7 lbs I would try it on and the hip area would be too big and the seamstress would take it in. 3 times. I only have a month til my wedding and I am trying so hard not to lose any more weight- its so hard with all the stress.
My last dress fitting was last week. I weigh around 141. I wear a 6 -7 in jeans now and a small top. She took it in to what she said was a 6/8 in the hips and an 8 on top, because oh yeah, I lost breasts :(

I wear size 8 pants, and when I tried on dresses, she put in a lot of size 10 dresses, as I also have DD top. I'm hoping to loose 20 pounds before I buy a dress, so the size will probably change. DB had petite sizes, and the sales lady brought out a dress in a 10P so I could see what a right size dress would look on me, and it fit like a glove, I would not have to have it hemmed or anything! I'll attach a picture.

Guess I'm diff.... I can wear pants in sizes 14-18. But my dress was a 14 womans. It fit perfectly with exception of length. I'm so dang short. I'm also fairly large at 36DD
