I started with a size A8 and I couldn't zip it by a few inches. ( my measurements are the perfect A8 chart sizes) An A10 zipped but it would take two or more people and NOT becoming or comfortable. If you have arms, this dress does not LOOK GOOD! ALL of the material comes together at waist and there is ZERO give. It has a pad in there as well so it looks really tight there making the stomach stand out more.If you easily get bloated don't get this dress. Or if you plan to eat cake!! This has no give. After walking around with the dress unzipped, I like the look of it better, it was a relax fit and the stomach and arms looked smaller.
I am ordering an A14. (waist is about 4 inches bigger, which is how the dress laid unzipped. The arms are one inch bigger. The bust is two inches bigger, I am guessing I will be able to just wear a bra if too big, but I would be surprised. (this dress has a built in bra padding)) But over all, I expect it to lay flatter as seen in the picture. I would rather it fit looser, more becoming, relaxed and can breath, than fit the size chart.
This dress is not forgiving on top! it's tight and uncomfortable if you follow this size chart. Really hoping A14 fits comfortably for my friend's wedding (we know it will zip for sure).
My normal clothes size is Adult Small/small medium. size 6/8
