Sizing Instructions

Size chart information is provided next to each item. Most manufacturers' sizing runs very small. Don't worry about the number, you should order for the proper fit! We suggest ordering for your current weight even though you may be planning to lose weight before your event. If your measurements are right between two sizes, we recommend choosing the larger size. If your bust is a size 14, your waist is a size 12 and your hips are a size 12 -- order the size 14. Remember, a dress that is too large can be altered to a smaller size, but a dress that is too small cannot be made larger.  The sizing decision is ultimately your decision.  We are always here to help and would be happy to discuss your size decision with you.

Plus size and additional length will incur an additional charge. These amounts vary by designer.


How to Measure

If possible, have someone else take your measurements for you. They will be more accurate! Take your measurements over the undergarments you plan to wear. Also, wear shoes with a heel height similar to what you plan to wear for your event. The tape measure needs to be pulled snug but not tight.


A - Bust: Measure over the fullest part of the bust, usually above the nipple. Note: this is not your bra size!
B - Waist: Measure around the smallest part of your waist, about 1 to 2 inches above your belly button.
C - Hips: Measure the fullest part of your hips.

  • Please keep in mind that the dress may not be an exact fit. Therefore, alternations may be necessary and may be easily hemmed by a local tailor.
  • We recommend that when selecting a size, you base your decision first by your BUST size, then waist, and lastly hips.
  • If you are between sizes, we suggest that you choose the larger size and have the dress tailored. A general rule of thumb is that a dress can be tailored 2 sizes down if necessary.
