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. Additionally, you may add your measurements (bust and waist) at check out 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.
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.

The beautifully-detailed fitted jacket features a square neckline in front and back, and is trimmed out with ruffled black bobbinette. Black grosgrain ribbon outlines the center front, neckline, cuff and back tail. The elaborate peplum curves from the front to the back, ending in a lovely van dyke effect at the back accented by black grosgrain ribbon and finished with lots of the same lovely silver buttons that close the bodice front. More buttons finish off the detail at the cuffs. 3/4 length sleeves. Truly beautiful!

The back of the skirt is black taffeta which is pleated and shirred lots of back interest with no bustle required. A lace and twill ruffle finishes the hem. Cotton twill and acetate taffeta. Dry clean. Alicia finishes the look with boots, petticoat, and jewelry - all are priced separately. Proudly made in America by Recollections.
