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.

Coco Chanel would have been proud to wear this fabulous roaring 20's styled dress! The black lace top which skims down past the waist has an attached camisole inside the sheer lace bodice. The separate skirt is made up in black bobbinette that falls in a "handkerchief layer" that is trimmed out with lace at the hemline. The skirt lining also has a lace hem. The skirt has a comfortable elastic waist. Proudly designed and made in America by Recollections. Polyester. Hand wash in cold water and hang to dry. Alicia completes the look with stockings, shoes, hat and jewelry - which are all priced separately. Can you say "Speakeasy?" Lovely.
Lace bodice and sleeves are making a comeback everywhere, but this handkerchief hem really adds style to this dress. I wore it to a fancy concert and to an afternoon movie called Back Street. I felt as special as the glamorous dresses on screen. And so many compliments! I wish this came in more colors... so wonderful!
