They ordered mine based on my current measurements but my dress has a lace up back so it can be taken in by simply tying it tighter emoticon

Kinda both...its too small to zip up but I think that's more of a chest problem than a weight problem. There wasn't larger size and I wanted a corset back anyway so its perfect. Everything else seemed to fit perfectly.

I bought mine off the rack and while I love it; it's a smidge too tight around my waist. I will be doing crunches every day from now until the Big Day! emoticon

I think it makes a difference what style dress it is. Mine is fitted at the top and looser at the bottom, I tend to lose weight at the bottom, so I was glad that I bought it in my current size. It fit just a smidge tight when I bought it, but even though I lost 15 lbs between buying it my wedding, it just made it a more comfortable fit. Alterations aren't cheap, I don't think I'd want to go into it knowing I was planning to spend as much on alterations as on my dress. To shorten the spaghetti straps, shorten the dress, and add a bustle (3 loops and 3 buttons) I paid like $200. I can't imagine how much it would cost to make it 2 sizes larger...and would it look right?
