Things You Need to Know Before Ordering Your Dress

 

Sizing and Fit - HOW TO MEASURE

Measure with undergarments similar to those you will wear with your dress; do not measure over other clothing. Make sure the measuring tape is parallel to the floor and pulled evenly across the body with no slack. 

We recommend our Brides compare their measurements to those of the dress they’re interested in purchasing. Bridal gowns are sized differently than your street clothes. Bridal gowns are made to accommodate alterations and can typically be taken in 2-4 sizes and let out 1-2 sizes (unless otherwise noted). If you are greater than a C cup, note that a bigger size is better.  You may want to consider getting professionally measured.

MEASUREMENT 

Bust: Do not use your bra size for a bust measurement. With a tape measure fullest part of the bust, across nipple line. Be sure to keep the measuring tape parallel to the floor. Wear a bra similar to the bra you will be wearing with your dress. 


Waist/Natural Waist: Smallest part of the waist, usually 1 inch above navel. While standing straight up, bend to your side. The part where your waist creases is your natural waist. Mark the spot, stand up and then measure there.


Hips: Fullest part of the buttocks. Stand with feet together.

Length from Hollow to Hem

Measure from the center of the collarbone (Hollow) to the dress hem. Note: The length is not measured starting from the garment neckline.

Almost everyone will require alterations by a professional seamstress.

It is always better to purchase a dress that is a little bigger than one that is too small. We recommend you purchase a gown that fits your largest measurement, and have the dress taken in.
