What standard size am I?

How do I determine my standard size?

The best way to determine your standard size in our dresses will be to measure your Bust, Waist, and Hips with a soft measuring tape (not a ruler or construction measuring tape) and then compare those to the size chart for your dress type.

We have guidelines for measuring as well as our different size charts (bridal, bridesmaid, MOB, maternity, flower girls, Junior) on our main Size Chart page, found here for US bridesmaids and here for Canadian bridesmaids. 

Please keep in mind that the measurement sets listed on the size charts reflect the measurements that would fit most comfortably in that individual size. They do not reflect the true dress measurements as we do add a little wiggle room to standard size dresses for comfort.

If your measurements don't quite add up, you may need to go up a size or more to get to the closest match and then have it altered to fit. For example, if you are ordering an A-line style and you are an A12 in the waist but your other measurements match up with a size A8, you're still going to want to go with a size A12 to fit your waist and then have the dress tailored down.

Will I need alterations?

As is common with formal clothing in general, you will likely need alterations for your standard size dress. To better fit a variety of body types and heights, we make the straps and length of our dresses on the long side so these do generally need to be adjusted. You may also find that you need things taken in here and there.

If you would like to reduce the cost of alterations, you can always order a custom size dress instead. With custom sizing we cut the dress to your exact bust, waist, hip, height, and hollow to floor measurements but you still may need some adjustments. Read our Custom Sizing FAQ for more helpful information.

Some Helpful Tips

  • If you've purchased a bridal gown or bridesmaid dress from another bridal company, you will still want to measure since sizing can differ from company to company.

  • Not every style fits the same. Strapless styles tend to fit snug to provide more support while styles with straps can run a bit bigger in the bust (an easy fix for a seamstress).

  • If you're going to wear a bra, take the padding out of the dress if it has it. Most dresses are made to be worn without a bra, so if you wear one, it can make the bust area look a bit off.

  • Make sure you take your measurements with whatever undergarments you plan on wearing with your dress on. If you don't plan on wearing a bra, take your bust measurement with a very thinly padded (or non-padded) bra. Do not wear a bra that compresses the breasts.

  • It is generally better to go with a larger size than a smaller size since it is easier to take a dress in rather than let it out.

  • How to find your fit in strapless styles:
    1. Base your sizing off of the waist measurement if it is bigger than your bust. There's not a lot of wiggle room in strapless styles, they're made to be snug.
    2. If you go a size down, and your waist is a bit bigger than the listed measurement, there is a possibility that you'll have some issues zipping the dress up.
    3. It is always better to go larger and have it taken in then hope to have enough fabric to let it out.

  • How to find your fit in styles with straps and sleeves:
    1. If you're a little larger in the bust (about an inch bigger), the dress should still look fine, but it may be a little snug.
    2. There's not a lot of extra room in the waist, so if you're a little larger than the measurement listed on the size chart, you may have some issues zipping up.
