HOW TO MEASURE FOR A BRIDESMAID DRESS
OK, before you get started;
1. Wear something form-fitting (camis or tank top) or simply measure yourself on bare skin (with undergarments only, not over clothes) to get the most accurate measurements.
2. Don't pull the measuring tape too tight or too loose around your body. You will want to give yourself some wiggle room so that you can breathe.
3. We advise you get the help of a family or friend or professional tailor and measure everything 2 - 3 times to be certain.
Now, grab the measuring tape and let's get started!
No cookie-cutter (mass production) bridesmaid dress here! We believe that all women deserve to have the bridesmaid dress of their dreams regardless of their size. One of the best parts about ordering your dreamy bridesmaid style with us is every piece in our collection is personally tailored (custom size) and made-to-order only (that's how we can offer so many colors and all sizes). We carry any size; standard and plus, petite and tall. Our skilled dressmakers carefully craft each dress exactly to your measurements, chosen style, length, fabric, and color; ensuring the best possible piece for your special day and lovely #TeamBride.
HOW TO MEASURE
For custom size, we accept a total of 5 measurements: Bust, Waist, Hips and Dress Length (body height + heel height).
1. Bust: __________ cm
2. Waist: __________ cm
3. Hips: __________ cm
4. Body Height (barefoot): _________ cm *measure from the top of your head down to the floor.*
5. Heel Height: _________ cm
Please note: Be sure to triple-check all your measurements! The body measurements provided are then plugged into a program that helps us prepare your gown pattern, estimate the amount of fabric and calculate where the boning, bra padded, neckline, waistline and hemline should fall on your body. Too often, people measure themselves incorrectly which results in a dress that does not fit as expected. Since custom dresses are made specifically for you, they cannot be returned or exchanged.
*IMPORTANT: Keep in mind, we will not be able to always guarantee a 100% fit even for custom sizes. While we handmade your order according to the measurements provided, it is only basic custom sizing (bust, waist, hips and height). As such, due to the non-stretchability of the fabrics, the way measurements are taken, and how the same dress falls on individual bodies since each body shapes are very different and unique. If necessary, you may need additional alterations at your local tailor at own expense once you have received the dress for your ideal fit.
Please note: Your custom size may not be the same as your standard dress size. Formal gowns often have fitted bodices and are more structured than everyday clothing.
*IMPORTANT: All orders to be produced by our manufactures in China. Please note that we are exclusively online and do not have a physical storefront or tailor team locally. We are unable to cater for any resizing or alteration requests for custom dresses (if the dress received is not right fit). As they are personally tailored according to measurements provided and checked before delivered.
To get an ideal fit, alteration is required physical presence and measure of the individual. Please bring along the invisible bra and heels during the session with your local tailor, if necessary.
