Wedding dress sizes is one of the ways that wedding gowns are different than other gowns. So keep on reading to find out more about how to find the right size for you.

Sample Sizing

When you walk into a bridal shop don't expect them to have your exact size waiting for you to try on. When you try on gowns you try on what is know as a sample size. Typically shops will carry a few sample sizes that they then clip and adjust to you when you try on the gown. So don't be disappointed when you arrive at the shop. Your wedding dress will be created once the order is placed with your correct size. 

Brands Have Different Sizes

Just like most brands in clothing, sizing isn't always consistent. If you are measured and your size is a 12 in one brand it doesn't mean its going to be like that with every brand. It maybe a size bigger and or smaller it all depends. It just gives you an estimate. This is totally normal. 

Don't Be Shocked If Your Dress Size Seems Bigger

It can be a little shocking to find out that your normal dress size doesn't transfer to be your bridal dress size. If you normally wear a size 8 in most dresses you might wear a 10 or even a 12 in a bridal gown. Bridal dresses tend to run small. Try not to pay attention at the number but how you feel in your gown. You want to make sure it feels comfortable and not too big or tight. 

Style Of Gown Has An Influence

The style of the gown you choose can also have an influence in the sizing you will need. A backless style can vary in size compared to a gown with a regular back design. The same goes for a gown that has a corset than one that doesn't. Some of these gown naturally have more leeway for movement.
