Dress size corsets

The most amazing dress is a size 12 label size 10 street and I'm a size 16 street. Am I screwed? Money's an issue. But it's the best n I've eyed it for months. Would wearing a corset or shape wear under it help? I'm going to go be measured later today but I really really love it so much Dress size corsets 1

    That's a big difference. I wouldn't chance it.

    I also wear a size 16 and would not want to chance it on this. If I can't squeeze myself into size 10 jeans, no way I can squeeze myself into a size 10 dress. Even if you managed to squeeze yourself in, you probably wouldn't be able to sit down all day. Only alternative would be to see if a seamstress could take it out and/or add some sort of paneling, but that would probably drastically change the look of the dress.

    Typically a bridal wedding size is TWO sizes bigger than street size. So that bridal 12 is probably more like a size 8. And if it’s used it’s been altered. I’m so bummed for you but don’t risk it. Maybe if only one size difference but still it would be better to find one 1-2 sizes bigger than your size, not smaller.

    Ugh, I'm sorry I think it's just too much of a difference. You'd need to make so many expensive alterations. Especially with that dress being form fitting. I'm having to workout like crazy right because in between my mini covid wedding and the big one in december I put on just like 10 lbs. My dress, which is also form fitting, will not go over my thighs right now lol. Wedding dresses are just not forgiving unfortunately. You definitely want to be comfortable on your day. Hang in there! You will find your dress!
