A top seller of Recollections and for good reason! This beautiful fancy taffeta gown is everything a woman would want in a Victorian ball gown, a wonderful addition to any wardrobe. It is styled after the 19th century, a time of fabulous fashion. This classic taffeta gown has fitted and boned bodice. The neckline is low scooped and the dress has a slight V-shape to the front and back waist. Short shirred sleeves are off-the shoulder. The skirt is very full and can accommodate a hoop underneath (as shown) or a crinoline. Dry clean. Acetate taffeta. Priced separately in the photograph are the choker, the gloves, the boots, the fan, and the extra full crinoline that the model is wearing. Recollections clothing is made in America.

Q: Are these dresses true to size or do they run big/small due to their style? Also, how long does it take to receive a dress once the order is placed?
A: Our clothing tends to run a bit generous. We strongly suggest ordering the size that is normally worn and sending a bust and waist measurement to ensure a proper fit. Normal production is at least four weeks.
Q: could we get this dress cut to hug the curves of a corset?
A: You can send corseted bust and waist measurements and we can do a bodice adjustment for 35.00 according to those measurements. This will make the dress non-returnable.
Q: How long is the skirt of the gown? I am 5ft 1in tall so I might need a shorterlength.
A: The gown measures from waist to hem 41/42 inches. We can alter the length for a $20.00 fee.
Q: I see that it takes 4 weeks, is there a way to get a rush order. Need a dress by Nov 21st.
A: We offer expedited shipping of 15-21 days or 7-14 days.
Q: Do you ship internationally?
Q: What type of Boning does it have ? Steel? Plastic?
Q: What is the back closure? Zipper or hook and eye?
A: You have your choice of zipper or hook and eye.

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.
