Size fit guide

October 6th, 2007 admin Posted in Measurement |

   We strongly recommend having your measurements taken by a professional seamstress.If you can not get professional measurements, we strongly advise that you do not take the measurements by yourself. Have someone help you and follow the guidelines on our website. Do not forget to tell us the height of your Wedding Shoes and this is very important. The length of your gown is your height Without Shoes and the height of your Wedding Shoes. 
   We don not suggest you ordering a dress using only your dress or bra size. Bridal gowns are meant to have a close fit to the body so they tend to be cut smaller than sportswear. When ordering, you will be asked for your body measurements. Based on those measurements you would order a size that would best fit your own measurements. What happens often is that women fall between two sizes. So we suggest you ordering the size that should fit your larger measurements. For most women that is the waist. Obviously the dress would then be a little bit too large in one area. That can be resolved with alterations. These dresses are made in a way such that alterations will not be a problem.
   There is some suggestion for different gown styles to make your dresses fit your body well.
   A-LINE style gowns fit closely on the bust and waist, so the size you choose should be the larger measurements in those areas.
   BALL GOWN or PICK-UP style gowns fit closely on the bust and waist, so the size you choose should be the larger measurements in those areas.
   SHEATH or SLIP style gowns fit close on the bust, waist, and hips, so the size you choose should be the larger measurements in those areas.
   MERMAID or TRUMPET style gowns fit close on the bust, waist, and hips, so the size you choose should be the larger measurements in those areas.
   EMPIRE style gowns’s high waist makes the important measurements the bust, so the size you choose should fit snugly across the bust and midriff, yet flow at the waist and hip.
   TEA-LENGTH style gowns no matter where they hit your lower leg, so the exact length is really a matter of personal preference. As with other styles, the bust, waist, and hip measurements are important to the fit, so all the sizes you choose should be the larger measurements.
   Furthermore, vast majority of our wedding dresses have 2 inches of seam allowance. The bust and waist measurements of that wedding dress can be altered 2 inches bigger (1 inches on each side). In other words, if the wedding dress has seam allowance, the bust and waist measurements of that dress can be altered bigger or smaller easily.
