My waist measures a size 12 and bust a 16, what size should I order?
In this situation you would need to order a size 16. Our dresses are designed to be easily taken in, however cannot be let out so go with the highest size/measurement. If your order the 16 this will fit your bust and a seamstress will be able to take in and fit the rest of the dress easily.
I am losing weight for the wedding, should I order the size I am aiming for?
We always recommend ordering a dress that fits you now. A seamstress will be able to take in the style to fit you beautifully for the wedding day, remember it’s easy to take a dress in but they cannot be let out!
I am between sizes, which should I order?
If you are between sizes its important you choose the higher size, this will ensure the dress is not too small, and if it does need nipping in a seamstress will be able to do this easily for you.
What length do the dresses come in?
All our dresses come in a long length to accommodate all heights and heel heights! Most Bridesmaids will need the length shortening, this is a very simple alteration, just ensure you have the shoes you will be wearing on the day so the seamstress can get the length right.
Top tip, a lot of your brides use the excess fabric to trim their bouquets or add a sash to flower girl dresses!
Is the bridesmaid dress fabric stretchy?
The dresses are made from a beautifully soft chiffon fabric, they are not stretchy, so it is important to avoid the dress being too small. If in doubt it is always better to go a size up and a seamstress will be able to fit the dress perfectly, they can be taken in but not let out.
