We are so happy to be able to offer a maternity line for our pregnant bridesmaids! These dresses are designed to grow with you, making choosing a size much easier! In fact, all you need to do to determine your size is to measure your bust, under bust, and hips and compare those to our maternity size chart, which can also be found on every dress's order page.
As your body changes daily, we suggest you order your dress no sooner than 12-14 weeks in advance.
While we do have a variety of maternity styles available, because the dresses are made with new, stretch fabrics, our color selection is limited. If the color you want isn't listed on the the individual dress page, no need to worry! We can custom make the following non-maternity styles to maternity measurements:
Long Chiffon Styles
Shannon (for Canada, click here)
Kaitlynn (for Canada, click here)
Francesca (for Canada, click here)
Kendall (for Canada, click here)
Annabel (for Canada, click here)
To custom order these styles, you will want to read the below recommendations but please note that these DO NOT apply to any styles in our maternity line!
If you're not ordering a style from our maternity line, you'll want to follow our current recommendations for when you should order regular dresses.
Our general rule for maternity is that your belly will grow about 1 inch every 4 weeks. Measure your waist at the largest part now and then add an inch to your waist for every 4 weeks leading up to your event date. If you have any questions or need help with figuring out your measurements, just contact us with your waist measurement now and the date of the event and we can determine how much extra you should add to your waist.
For the bust, it usually is fine to remain the same, but you can always add a couple of inches to the bust if you are already seeing growth and have the dress taken in if needed. We recommend ordering a custom size with the added measurements and using our alterations reimbursement to have the dress altered to fit your body more accurately when you receive the dress.
Reimbursement limits (in USD):
Dress $59 and under - limit $20
Dress $60 - $99 - limit $35
Dress $100 - $199 - limit $50
Dress above $200 - limit $75
You may also feel more comfortable if you have the boning removed from the dress, but this is a super easy alteration for a local tailor to do!
Please keep in mind that while we do our best to guess how much growth you will see, maternity is always tricky and there is no hard and fast way to know how much your belly will grow. You may grow more, or you may grow less, we can't be absolutely positive!
