How to Measure Your Dress Size

First determine your body measurements; measure yourself bare for best accurate results.
Please consider that even with accurate measurements, you may still need to alter the dress. Lets face it, no one is the perfect model size, that means prom dresses will most likely that some alterations will need to be made. Itís a necessary part of purchasing any prom dress if you want it to look perfect on you. You may not like the way it hugs your hips, or the way it shows the silhouette of your body. We also recommend you order a dress 1 size larger then your size, that way if alterations need to be made, they are able to repair the dress according to your body size. If however if you get a dress of your size, and it might be a little too tight, you wont be able to open up the dress. Remember, youíre able to take the dress a size down, but not a size up.
Also, PLEASE NOTE don't make assumptions on your dress size! It is imperative that you take down your measurements, and do not select the same size you would normally wear for a top or another dress. All dresses are manufactured differently, therefore some might run small or large. Choosing a size that is based on your measurements will be a more better accurate fitting dress.
