March is Women's History Month and this year we are celebrating the women and events from and about the Edwardian era (1901-1919). We're featuring Edwardian fashions on sale through midnight on March 23rd. This time in our history was truly transitional. We were changing from the horse-and-carriage world of the Victorian era into the modern era we recognize today. Women's suffrage didn't start at the dawn of the 20th century but it came to its fruition during this time. The automobile grew as a mode of transportation. Telephones became common and trans-atlantic communication became possible during these years. The use of electricity grew. Science and medicine went through some major changes. We've found some celebrations and reenactments that we'll highlight. If you know of an event that is happening that you feel we should look into highlighting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or let us know through our Facebook page (@likerecollections). We'll put it all together in a blog post for everyone!

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 email@example.com 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.
