We are an online bridal retailer keeping the costs affordable to you. You can feel confident about your beautiful wedding dress purchase with us because we work with dressmakers whom have a minimum of 7 or more years in business making dresses so we know the product will be accurate, well made for you.
When you choose your dream dress with us, we take careful consideration in verifying sizing, color choices and any other details that may need to be addressed.
On our dress pages, you can choose a size, color if available or click the custom size button. Whenever anyone chooses a size instead of submitting measurements, the dress is still made to order and the standard size chart measurements will be used.
Once you place your dress order, we will send our email or text to verify your size and color information. Please contact us within 24 hours to make any changes to your order.
People ask about the risk of buying online and not being able to try on the dress. We recommend you go to a local bridal shop to try on wedding dress styles to find your dream dress style, then shop online for a wider selection and with better knowledge and understanding of what style dress looks best on you. Use the online model photos as a guide. Some models will be holding a dress out or the full train is spread out, this is to show the dress detail to the customer.
After you place an online order with us, your order is sent to the dressmaker. First they confirm with us your information, then they start the process. First the fabric is cut based on your measurements, then the basic seams are sewn. Next, if there is any under skirting, it is sewn into the garment. Any embellishments like beading, bows, pleats, embroidery or lace is added and your dress is completed and ready for inspection.
Your delivery date is an ESTIMATE. Most dresses arrive by quoted date but sometimes there can be delays in the shipping chain. Made to order dresses take time to make, there may be other orders ahead of you. We need at least 35 days or more to complete the made to order dress process. Plan ahead and you will receive a beautiful dress made just for you. The more hand sewing and complicated bead work on a dress means more time to make the dress. If you have doubts you will receive your dress on time, please contact us before you order and we can give you the estimated delivery date. This is an ESTIMATE based on current orders and shipping times and is it not a guarantee.
Your Dress Has Arrived
Your dress has shipped inside out to avoid damage. Carefully turn the dress right side out. We recommend using gloves to avoid any marks on your dress. Hang the dress up right away. If you do not have a rack tall enough to hang dress on, use a sheet on the floor that the train or skirt may rest on.
If this is your first experience with buying a wedding dress, please note that wedding dresses are not like regular gowns. They can be stiff because of multiple layers, hand sewn embellishments which need a stiff fabric to sew onto, tulle underskirts or lace that is sewn on the dress material. Wedding gowns are sewn to withstand pressure and keeping everything in during your event. Bra pads are made with polyester firm material so nothing shows through a dress.
The dress a LET seam which is an important part of your dress, in case you need to let the dress in or out. Please be prepared to have some alterations done to your dress. Just like if you bought a wedding dress from a local retail bridal shop there is always a final fitting close to your wedding date where the dress is adjusted to your current body sizing for the most snug fit on your special day. Because your dress was shipped and not hanging in a dress shop, your dress may need to be pressed to have the full skirt effect. Petticoats may also be needed for fuller ball gowns.
You have made it through all the planning and your day has arrived, enjoy it, enjoy your friends and family that have come to celebrate with you.
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 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. If your sizing is in between a size chart measurement, for example you measure 39 3/4 inch, go to the next size, ie. 40 for your measurement.

Also, if you are greater than a C cup, note that a bigger size is better.
Bust: Do not use your bra size for a bust measurement. With a tape measure fullest part of the bust, across the 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 both feet together.
Shoulder to Shoulder: take the measurement on the back from one end of the shoulder to the other, do not pull a straight line, follow the natural curve of your body.
Hollow to Floor: Standing with bare feet flat and straight together, bring the tape measure to the hollow space between your collarbones (just below the chin and neck there is a little indent - that is the hollow), put the tape measure straight down to the floor and stop at the length your dress will be and that tape measurement will be your hollow to floor number, just 1 number.
- Arm Length - shoulder point to natural slightly bent arm to wrist is your sleeve length.
- Armpit - measure around fullest part of upper arm.
- Wrist - use a fabric tape measure or a piece of paper, wrap it around where you would wear a bracelet, put end together and that is your wrist size number.
Almost everyone will require some 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.
Leave us your custom sizing or standard size and we confirm your dress size and color within 24 hours of purchase.
If you require a custom consultation, please contact us with your questions.
Handling and Care - please use professional services to clean and store your dress, fabrics are delicate and need professional care.

Dress Order FAQ's Q & A
Q. I don't like the fit, what can I do?
Our dresses are newly tailored just for you. Everyone has different figure features. To ensure your dress fits, most dresses have a 1 inch seam for your local tailor to take in or let out dress seams.
We do offer up to $50.00 towards a seam alteration made within 30 days of receiving a dress on a case by case basis. We do not take return on dresses for sizing when customer has provided their sizing to us.
Q. I don't like the color, what can I do?
Some fabrics show differently depending on lighting, computer monitors, angles of photo. Slight color differences are not color defects or wrong delivery. However, if you receive the wrong color dress, contact us immediately.
Q. This dress doesn't look like the one I ordered, what can I do?
Every customer has a different consumption level. We prepare the dress according to the dress details on the site. Different sizes may make a dress look not like the model photo. The photos on our site are professional models with size 2 or 4 for most of the dresses. A size 2 may look different from a size 10. Please keep in mind you may not look like the model in your dress. We suggest you go to a local dress shop first and try on styles so you find what looks best on you. Not all styles match all figures and are flattering. We do not take returns if you do not like the dress.
Q. My zipper is not zipping, what can I do?
Some dresses with thick seams or invisible zippers may not easily zip up. When you zip up, pull the zipper slowly and carefully. If the zipper gets stuck, pull the zipper backwards and forwards to adjust the teeth. if the zipper breaks, please bring to a local tailor to fix.
Q. My dress has a mark on it, what can I do?
All dresses are inspected before shipping. Dress will ship inside out to avoid marks. If there is a mark from the processing of tailoring, these marks can be removed with a tiny bit of clothing soap. Rub gently just on the mark with a damp soft towel and soap or get advice from a professional cleaner.
Q. Where does the dress ship from? TLBCA is a registered business in the United States and we use family owned wholesale factories that are all over the globe to keep the costs down to our customers. Our made to order clothing may take a little longer to get but you will receive a quality product without the additional overhead costs that get passed onto the consumer by not having to warehouse or have inventory stock.
Q. What does Made To Order mean? A made to order piece is only made up when an order is placed saving consumers money and being eco-friendly with sustainable fashion alternative to mass produced clothing. Each piece is made for a specific person in their size by the information provided to us. In general Made To Order clothing is not returnable for these reasons and only returnable for true defects or wrong item.
