Oh! Those Roaring 20's! The older generation must have been convinced that the world was rushing down the road to perdition, as their daughters took full advantage of new-found freedoms. This was the age of jazz, women's liberation, and a sudden loosening - indeed smashing - of the rules of society that were iron-clad only a few years before. Women - who now had the vote - went about in public without chaperones, rid themselves of corsets, shortened their dresses to above the knee, and indulged in "lewd dancing", smoking in public, and drinking hard liquor. In addition, they chopped off their hair and put on LOTS of the new pancake makeup and surrounded their eyes with kohl. Their lips were painted bright red - the only color available. They plucked out their eyebrows - sometimes completely - and re-drew their brows darker and higher than they had naturally been. Continue reading about the 20's fashions on our blog.

Most people find that our sizing runs generously. If you are undecided with which size to order, it is best to order the smaller size, or give us a call to assist you (1-800-452-5925). You may also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your measurements (bust and waist) and we can help you choose the nearest size.
An exception to the generous sizing is the type of ball gown that requires boning in the bodice and that supports a heavy skirt. Many times this style is also "off-the-shoulder" and requires a firm fit to stay up. These styles tend to not run as generously as most of our other garments because of this. But please, give us a call if you are uncertain.
In most cases you should take your bust and waist measurement to determine your size. Please wear the undergarments that you intend to wear when you do your measuring. For example, take your measurement over the type of brassiere or corset that you may be wearing.
Measure the fullest part of your bust around and the smallest part of your waist.
