How to Measure Your Size for Your Custom Dresses

All our custom-made dresses require precise measurements rather than a standard size. Accurate measurements will help you to get a perfect fit dress. We always recommend having a professional take all of your measurements. Please do read our measuring guide!

Key Points For Your Attention Before Measuring

  • Your dress size measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress.

  • Wear no shoes when measuring.

  • Stand with your back straight, keep your head up, relax your arms, and down at your sides.

  • If any plan for gaining or losing weight, please inform your designer the forecast changes. We will help to modify your dress for free if it doesn’t fit you for above reasons. Only the shipping cost will be charged.
