Wedding dress sizing can be tricky, so it would be best if you confirm with the bridal store what size you would be with your given measurements. A lot of online stores offer a sizing chart on their website. Remember, a wedding dress size can always be altered a few sizes up or down! Ask your bridal store/boutique if they do alterations or if they can recommend a seamstress. Another thing to keep in mind is the delivery and alteration times when making your purchase.
A really great benefit for online purchasing is that most bridal stores have exclusive online sales, therefore purchasing a wedding dress online can be so much more cost-effective!

If you are buying from a reliable store, you have nothing to be concerned about.
