We want to ensure that you have the perfect fit for your perfect day!
We recommend that you get a qualified seamstress to measure you. Always get someone else to take the measurements for you: measuring yourself will give inaccurate numbers. Measure with undergarments similar to those you will be wearing with your dress, do not measure over other clothing.
Wedding Dress sizing is different from NZ clothing sizes. You may find that you will need to go up/down several sizes, so please check the size chart below and compare it with your body measurements. It is a lot easier to take a gown in rather than let it out.
We recommend you choose the lace up (corset) back option as this will give you a bit of leeway and be able to tie the laces to get a perfect fit to your body shape.

Measure from your shoulder seam to desired sleeve length with your arm relaxed by your side to get the best possible measurement.
