We offer basic custom sizing using your bust, waist, height, and hollow-to-floor measurements to help reduce your potential alteration costs. We suggest you contact a tailor to start the fitting process once you’ve picked up your dress. We can also recommend some great tailors if you want help looking.

If I wanted to place an online order, how do I go about taking measurements?
We recommend having your measurements taken by a trusted tailor/ seamstress.
All of our gowns are personally made according to your basic measurements.
Small variations in all wedding gowns are to be expected, custom tailoring is necessary for all quality garments to achieve the best possible fit.
Please keep in mind, we offer basic custom sizing using your bust, waist, height, and hollow-to-floor measurements to help reduce your potential alteration costs. While we will make your order according to the measurements provided, your dress may require additional alterations at your expense.
For example, strap length isn't customized. We make all straps the same length, to fit a wide range of body types, so your dress straps may need to be adjusted or taken in with a local tailor to fit you comfortably.
