We specialize in previously-owned dresses from size 0 to plus size 26. Many of our dresses may have been altered or custom made for the original owner. Each dress lists its actual measurements. Our measurements are all assumed to be approximate. We measure every gown and list the measurements to guide you for the best fit. Do not assume a dress size tag is the size you buy in street clothes. Measuring yourself will help you find a dress that will fit your body size and will avoid sizing errors.
Check out our measuring guide to assist you in determining your measurements. Getting professionally measured is the most reliable way to ensure the most accurate measurements.
How to get the most accurate measurement for the perfect fit.
Using a cloth tape measure, take measurements while wearing lightweight clothes and flat shoes. For the most accurate results, take measurements while wearing only undergarments and barefoot.
For best results, we recommend having someone else take the measurements or go to your local tailor.
Follow these simple steps to get your measurements.
Bust Measurement - A
Wear an unpadded bra, relax arms at sides and measure across the fullest part of the bust.
Waist Measurement - B
Stand straight with arms at side. Bend to one side to find the natural crease of your waist. Measure around your body at this point keeping the tape measure loose to allow for breathing room.
Hip Measurement - C
Stand straight with feet together. Measure around the fullest part of the hips and rear across both hipbones.
Shoulder to Floor Measurement - D
Stand straight with feet together. Measure from the center of the collarbone straight down to the floor.
Waist to Floor Measurement - E
Stand straight with feet together. Bend to one side to find the natural crease of your waist. Measure from waist straight down to the floor.
