Azazie Standard Sizing
Azazie's sizing is different from retail sizing as it is structured and less stretchy than regular clothing. Our sizing runs true to our size chart, but we've added a little wiggle room to the standard size dresses for comfort. So, it's important to measure yourself and compare your measurements to our size chart to find your best size!
Size Chart & Measurements
The size chart is based on body measurements, not garment measurements. The measurement sets listed on the size chart reflect the measurements of the person who would fit most comfortably in that individual size. However, keep in mind that there is a little wiggle room added to standard size dresses for comfort. So, it's important to measure yourself and compare your measurements to the size chart to find the best fit for you.
Size & Style Ranges
The standard dress sizes available for Bridesmaid, Bridal Gowns, and Mother of the Bride dresses are A0-A30. Junior sizing is also available and is determined in the same way as standard size dresses for adults.
Dress Lengths | How long is your dress?
The length of the dress is determined by the Hollow to Hem measurement, which measures from the hollow (the soft spot between the collarbones) down to the hemline or end of the dress. This can help determine where the bottom of the dress will fall on you.
For a knee length style dress in size A10, the length will be 38.5 inches. To determine where the hemline will hit a bridesmaid, measure from their hollow down 38.5 inches.
Size Inconsistencies | Not every style fits the same...
No, the sizes may not be consistent across all styles and designs of standard size dresses. Different styles may fit differently (strapless styles tend to fit snug, styles with straps can run a bit bigger in the bust.) It is recommended to measure and use the At-Home Try On Program to determine the best size and fit for each specific dress style.
Plus & Petite Sizing
Yes, absolutely! We value inclusivity and offer a wide range of standard sizes as well as a custom size option to ensure that everyone can find a dress that fits them perfectly. If you need a dress that is specifically designed for petite or plus size, the custom sizing option takes all of your measurements into consideration to create a dress just for you! So, no matter your size, you can find a dress that fits you perfectly.
At Azazie, we understand that sometimes Standard Size dresses may require alterations to achieve the perfect fit. Unfortunately, we do not provide alterations as part of our service for Standard Size dresses. However, we do offer custom sizing as an alternative to minimize the need for alterations. If you choose a custom size dress and it doesn't fit as promised, Azazie can provide alteration reimbursements.
When you are "In-Between" Sizes
If your measurements fall between two sizes on the chart, you should choose the larger size. Remember, it's easier to take something in than it is to add to a dress.
True to Size | Does it run big/small?
The standard size dresses may not fit exactly true to size as different styles may fit differently (strapless styles tend to fit snug, styles with straps can run a bit bigger in the bust) and sizing can differ. It is advised to measure and use the At-Home Try On Program to determine the best size and fit.
Tips On Finding A Seamstress
We recommend shopping around and getting quotes before settling on a seamstress. The seamstress can generally give you a quote and timeline for how long that will take over the phone.
It's important you don't wait to book your alterations appointment. Seamstresses become very busy between March and September. If you already suspect you will need alterations or are not sure, set the appointment in advance to be safe. You can always cancel later.
