I was hoping you could help me. i am looking into purchasing the Luscious dress and I am torn between the XL and 2XL sizes. I once tried this dress on in store in a Large, and although I could pull it on (as it's so stretchy) it was wayyyy to tight. My Bust is 44 and my waist is 36, so I thought i would be 2XL, but I've read that women size down.

My main fear is that the bodice would be too large. It seems to be my biggest challenge when finding dresses that flatter my bust is that the shoulders and neckline end up being too big and not very flattering.

Any suggestions would be great!

Hi Erin,

You will have to purchase a size that fits your bust and then take it to a seamstress to have the rest of the dress altered to fit the rest of your body. I have this problem a lot too and finally broke down and found a seamstress I LOVE!!!  It does add to the cost a little bit but not as much as you would expect unless you have to have a rush done on it, and that costs a ton! So, if you are buying a dress for a specific event and need to have it altered you need to talk to your seamstress first so that you get the dress far enough in advance that he/she can schedule fitings and the work to be done before you need it. Plus, also keep in mind that most professional seamstresses will actually leave just a tad bit of extra fabric on the inside of the seam (if they are taking it in) so that, Heaven forbid, if you ever obtain a little bit more what my boyfriend calls 'lusiousness' (as I have on and off throughout the years) the dress can be let out a bit...if ever need be, or taken in more. So, no matter what you will always have a custom dress that will FIT YOU AND ONLY YOU. :)  Hope this helps!
