Though our dresses are North American sizes, they
were made from different manufacturers. It's important that you
determine which size you require based upon the measurement given in
each item's size chart.
The measurements shown on the size chart are
taken in inches from the dress laid flatly. Multiply by two to get the
circumference of the dress.
Dresses with an elastic waist will also show the maximum comfortably
stretched size. Example: waist 12-13", 12" represents its natural flat
width and 13" represents its stretched size.
Choose one of your own dresses of that fits you
well, lay it flat and measure across the front at the appropriate
areas. Then, compare that measurement with our dress. If your
measurements happen to be between two sizes, we suggest that you choose
the larger one.
Measure across the chest, just below the underarms.
Measure across the waistband, for a dress it is
usually the narrowest center part of the dress.
Measure across the widest width of the dress below
Hip sizes are not listed on flared dresses.
Measure from top of shoulder to hem.
It's good to know the fabric content of the dress
you are purchasing, this will help you to determine how the dress would
fit, and find your best size.
Understanding if your dress is "Stretchy" or
"NON-stretchy" is also important as the stretchy dress will slightly
stretch to accommodate the curve of your body, while the non-stretchy
fabric will not,
Additionally, if the dress has an elastic waist
band it will also be stretchy, unless otherwise noted in the listing
