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.

You will feel like nobility wearing this truly fabulous ensemble! The entire Victorian style outfit consists of three pieces - a bustier, skirt, and an overskirt. The long bustier is made up in black velvet, and comes to a deep point at the front, and the sides dip to long points at the sides. Gimp trim follows all of the hemline edges, and the points of the peplum are finished with black tassels. A line of black buttons accent the front, and echo the beaded fringe that drips from the hem of the bodice. A rope-and-tassel drape finishes the front hemline. The neckline features a deep ruffle of wide lace the spills over the front, back and shoulders. Boning makes the bodice hold its shape against your body, and it closes with hooks and eyes in the back. The black taffeta skirt has a comfortable elastic waist, and features black lace trim at the ruffled hem and on the side panels. The skirt has ties inside so you can bustle it up. The overskirt is in matching black velvet with twill tapes inside to bustle it. Cotton velvet; acetate taffeta. Dry Clean. Ola is also wearing jewelry, gloves, boots, crinoline and carrying a fan - all are priced separately. This one is truly special! Recollections clothing is made in America.
