Measurements: Close Call or Kidding Yourself?

So, I'm about to buy my first brand (Angelic Pretty) piece from the sales community! YAY OMG SO EXCITED and all that, but I have one concern: measurements! I'm so used to S, M, L from non-brand and getting told "It's XXcm, but will stretch to YYcm," but brand seems less forgiving. What I'm looking at is 35cm in the shoulders (according to Hello Lace), and my shoulders are 36cm. While I'm awaiting the seller's response, I was wondering what all of you thought? Is 1cm difference "yeah, you'll be okay and have full range of movement" or "No, you will hulk out what are you thinking!?"

And just to generate discussion: As this is my first brand piece (and my one of my two dream dresses!), tell us about your first time buying brand OR your dream dress (what it was, how you felt, was it tough to acquire, did you wear it ALL THE TIME, etc?)

Thanks, Lo's and Bro's!
