Sizing & Alterations
How Do I Know Which Size To Order?
If you are unsure of your measurements when you order, please don’t worry we are always happy to help with any queries you have. We have also included a helpful size guide and instructions below to guide you through the steps. One of our stylists will get in touch to discuss the best size for you depending on your general clothing size, the silhouette and the fabric of the dress (some fabrics are stretchy and some not). If you already have your full measurements, please put these measurements in the ORDER NOTES section of your order when you checkout. We will be in contact with you to discuss these measurements. If you feel your shape/size proportions sit outside the standard then please email us with your concerns.
Once we have received all your measurements, we convert them into a generic dress size using our size chart. We make the dress accordingly as well as making the dress to the correct length for you, so if you are sitting in between sizes this is not a problem at all. When placing an order, you will have to select from these dress sizes available between UK 4-26; please select the size that best corresponds to your measurements / your general dress size.
What Do You Need To Know When I Order?
Please make sure to let us know your wedding day so that we can make sure that your dress can be made and delivered well before your wedding day. In the notes section of your order you can provide us with your measurements if you already have them.
If you don’t have your full measurements please just enter your wedding day in the ORDER NOTE.
- Back shoulder to shoulder
- Bust (the dress has pads in it so if you are not planning on wearing a bra please measure yourself without the bra or vice versa)
- Length from waist to hem
- Your height and the height of heels you plan to wear (Shoulder to floor)
- If the dress has long sleeves please also send us the measurements of bicep and length of your arms
Please view our size guide to see more details.
How Should I Take My Measurements?
We highly recommend your measurements are taken by a professional seamstress. However, it’s also possible that you can take measurements yourself, please see our guidance for more information. Once your full measurements are taken, please put these measurements in the ORDER NOTES section of your order when checkout and one of our stylists will be in contact with you to discuss these measurements.
It is very important to communicate to us any concerns you have about your body shape and to choose the best dress for your shape.
Do I Need Alterations And When Is The Best Time?
This is completely up to you and you may wish to tweak your dress with your local seamstress, however if you live in the UK, we offer that service. We convert your measurements into our generic size and make your dress on a standard size mannequin so that we can standardise our production process and avoid any unnecessary mistakes. All alteration costs are covered by the Bride.
We make your dress according to the measurements you gave us. We highly recommend all our brides have their measurements professionally taken. You might find that going to a local alterations shop is an easy way to make the dress fit exactly how you would like it to fit, particularly for tight fitting dresses.
In the rare occasion you think we have made a mistake with your measurements; please send us a few photos and we will happily ensure that it is fixed at our cost. Unfortunately, we can only cover costs if the misfit is brought to our attention within 10days of delivery. It is important to communicate to us any concerns you have about your body shape and to choose the best dress for your shape.
Who Can Alter My Dress?
We can adjust your dress if necessary, if you are based in the UK. You are also welcome to altering the design of the dress before purchasing from our ready to wear collection. Please contact us for these details.
