Measurements and Sizing – Please follow these guidelines using a soft measuring tape to determine your measurements.

* Please make sure to keep the tape snug and not tight when measuring. Also, for the most accurate fit, we recommend that you measure over the same undergarments that you anticipate wearing under your dress. 

Bust: Measure around (NOT under) the bust and back (the fullest part of your bust).

Waist: Measure around your natural waist (the narrowest part of your waist). Breath in and out - do not suck in!

Hips: Measure your lower hips, about 8" - 9” down from your natural waist down. Stand with your feet together and measure around your backside (the fullest part of your hip). 

Height: Extra length is NOT available for Ceremony and Love Story dresses. however, our long gowns are designed with extra length built in. floor length dresses will hit the floor for anyone 6'1" (Ceremony) and 5'9" (Love Story). Each of our short dress styles has a standard length. If this length is not appropriate for your height, please order a long style and shorten to desired length.

Fit Notes

Wrap Dresses: Our wrap dresses are designed to be low cut. If your bust measurement is between sizes or on the upper end of a size OR if you simply want more coverage, please order a size up to ensure proper bust coverage.

Tall Clients: For taller clients ordering shorter dresses, if you are concerned about the length, we recommend ordering a long dress and having it hemmed to your desired length.

Maternity Clients: Please order long dress styles only and hem to your desired length.

Extended Sizing: Our sizes XXXL, XXXXL, 18, 20, 22, & 24 are extended sizes. If a client’s measurements are the upper end of that size range, the dress may run small and we cannot guarantee the fit. Please consider ordering extra fabric to add panels to your dress if necessary or choose a wrap style
that can be worn over a slip.

* There is a $35 surcharge per dress for sizes XXXL, XXXXL, 18, 20, 22, & 24.
** All dresses, skirts, and tops are available in sizes XXS - XXXXL and 0 - 24.
