What is Custom Sizing?
Custom sizing is a fantastic option for customers who want a dress that fits like a glove. It's perfect for those who fall between standard sizes or want a closer fit overall. With custom sizing, we'll make the dress to your exact measurements, including bust, waist, hips, height, and hollow to floor. If you're going for a floor-length look, we also offer an option for extra length.
And the best part? Custom sizing costs the same and takes the same amount of time as a standard size dress. The only difference is that custom dresses are non-returnable for any reason, including wedding cancellations or last-minute changes. So make sure you're totally in love with your design before you order!
Getting a Great Fit
At Azazie, our custom sizing option is simple and easy to use. While we can only accept a total of 5 measurements (not including extra length), it's enough to create a great fit. You might still need to make some small adjustments, but you shouldn't need any extensive alterations. With Azazie's custom sizing option, you can get a dress that fits perfectly and is uniquely tailored to your measurements.
Notes: To ensure the best possible outcome, we offer some alteration reimbursements if you find that your custom dress requires any adjustments. While these reimbursements will help cover some of the costs, it's possible that they may not entirely cover the cost of alterations, and Azazie is not responsible for any additional fees associated with alterations.
More about Alteration Reimbursements
We know that unexpected things can happen, and sometimes plans change. But when it comes to custom sizing, we want to make sure you have all the information you need before you place your order.
It's important to note that custom dresses are non-returnable for any reason, including wedding cancellations, incorrect ordering, or sizing changes. However, before you add a custom dress to your Shopping Bag, you'll be asked to confirm that you understand and accept this policy. You'll need to confirm this again before you place your order.
We understand that custom sizing is a big decision. Take your time, double-check your measurements, and make sure you're 100% in love with your design before you place your order. With a little bit of care and attention, you'll have a custom dress you can cherish forever.
Follow our easy measuring video with the help of a friend and a soft measuring tape (not a ruler or construction tape).
After you've got your measurements, we recommend adding 0.25 to 0.5 inches (or centimeters if you're ordering from our Mexico or French websites) to your bust, waist, and hip measurements for a little extra comfort.
Here are some other tips to keep in mind:
- Wear fitted clothing (like leggings and a tank top) when measuring
- Wear a supportive bra (whether you plan to wear one with the dress or not)
- Do not decrease your measurements if you're planning to lose weight
- Order 4 months before your event using your current measurements, otherwise, order a standard size
- Consider empire waistlines if you're concerned about where the waistline will hit
- You don't need to be measured at a bridal store or by a seamstress (but if you are, make sure they follow our guidelines!)
- We accept measurements in inches (for our US and UK websites) and centimeters (for all other international websites)
Custom Sizing vs Custom Design
Please note that custom sizing is not the same as custom design. Unfortunately, we can't accommodate requests to make a floor-length dress into a knee-length style or vice versa.
When it comes to measuring, don't worry about adjusting your height and hollow to floor to make your dress shorter or longer. The height and hollow to floor are used to determine where the hemline, neckline, and waistline should fall and changing either of these can end up moving the waistline of your dress to below your neck.
Standard vs Custom Sizing
We want your custom dress to be perfect, so here's a helpful tip: never order a custom size dress using the measurements of a standard size dress.
Why not? Well, standard sizing has some extra room built in for comfort, while custom sizing is made exactly as ordered. This means that the overall fit and proportions of the dress will change based on your height and hollow to floor measurements. The waistline, bustline, and hemline may end up being higher or lower, depending on the measurements.
If you tried on a standard size and it fit well, but was too long, we recommend ordering the same standard size and having it hemmed up. This will ensure that you get the same great fit without having to worry about proportions being thrown off.
