How to measure accurately

To make sure your measurements are correct, here are some tips on how to measure accurately. 

EVERY brand has their own size chart and it’s really important to take a look at it before placing an order. It’s also really common to have to size up in special occasion wear so be sure to reach out to a stylist if you’re unsure!

If you take your measurements at home, here are a few key points to keep in mind:

Stand up straight, with arms lifted slightly & feet together.
When measuring make sure the tape is firm but not tight.

Take your measurements with the same undergarments you will be wearing. Note most gowns have built in cups and no bra is required. 

Measuring the bust: 

Bring the tape around the fullest part of your breast and directly level around the back. 

Measuring the waist

Bring the tape around the waist at the point you naturally curve in, the slimiest point of your waistline, above your navel and below your rib cage.  This can be found when you bend side to side.

Measuring the hips. 

Bring the tape around the bottom and thighs, at the fullest part.

Record the measurements and compare to the relevant size chart.  Note different makes have different size charts, so be careful to compare the measurements to the relevant size chart. 

If you are in-between sizes order the larger size, as it is easier to take a dress in than let it out when having alterations.  Note most gowns have a long hem line to accommodate everyone’s height and shoe preferences. Alterations may be necessary to ensure the perfect fit.  We do not customise dresses. 



Before placing your order

 – Check the expected delivery time frames for the specific dress you want to order. Special occasion dresses can take up to 18 weeks to arrive during peak times! Remember to leave additional time for delivery and alterations.
