Wore both dresses!! haha!
I don't fit well in dresses with waists. My waist is 2" higher than dresses allow for generally. My boobs tend to be also, so I generally go for dresses that I can easily cinch the straps up 2" on. I risked it this time, but it worked out. I started in the size 8, because it was a touch longer and not as snug. I wore that to the ceremony, and then between the ceremony and the party, my friend told me to try on the 6... which ended up making me feel much more confident, even if it was shorter. It wasn't easy to 'get down' at the wedding with such a short dress, but I'm fairly modest, and I survived! Note that I'm probably pretty pear shaped. I'd recommend this dress for more "straight and narrow" or even 'athletic" builds. It didn't hinder my hips, but I would have loved a belt with it. I was traveling, so.... no belt added on for me :) The high neckline made it so I didn't need a necklace - i went with long earrings instead, and the lace felt fancy enough. In fact, for this particular wedding, I was a little extra-dressed-up in my opinion!! (I could have gone with a nice maxi, lol)
