How to Measure For Your Size
It is very important that proper measurements be taken before a gown is ordered. On average, you will need to go up 1 or 2 sizes than what you normally wear in sportswear or street clothes. Please note that special occasion dresses are sized differently than ready-to-wear clothes. You might find yourself ordering the special occasion dress in a larger size than the size you usually wear.
To measure yourself, you must be dressed in only a good fitting bra and underwear. To measure your bust, take the measuring tape around your back at bust level and over your nipples without pulling too tight or leaving too much slack. Do the same at your waist going over your belly button. To properly measure your hip, go around the fullest part of your buttocks, about 7-9 inches below your belly button. Skirt length is from your waist down. Compare these measurements to our size chart and you should have a good fit.
Matching Measurements to Size
Once you have taken your measurements, see the corresponding size chart. These measurements are taken to determine the closest size to be ordered. If your measurements indicate one size for the "bust" and a different size for the "waist and/or hips", we suggest you place a custom order. Please refer back to your dress page for the custom link.
