Measurement Guide

Made to measure dresses are ordered on a non-refundable basis. So we need to know your exact measurements to avoid ill-fitting items. With this in mind we have made the following guide to help you through the process:

  1. Please wear an un-padded bra, similar to what you will wear with the garment on your wedding day or special occasion.
  2. Get help from a friend, family member or even better a seamstress to take the measurements for you, this will give a more accurate measurement.
  3. When ordering stock items and you are on the edge of two sizes, order the larger size, e.g., if your waist equals size 12 and your bust a 14, you should order a size 14. Please keep in mind, it is easier to cut a dress down than up.
  4. Usually your made to measure item will not need all the measurements detailed below it is a good to have them, just in case.
  5. Please be sure not to round up or down to the next cm when taking your measurements, e.g., if your measurement ends up being 101.8cm, please submit 101.8cm to us and do not round up to 109cm.
