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.

Reminiscent of the gowns worn in the Regency era, this lovely gown will transport you into the world of Pride and Prejudice or any of Jane Austen's lovely books. Our romantic high-waisted gown has a high neck and long sleeves. The dress features a front covered button closure, and the long sleeves are shirred at the cuff and extended to cover the hand. The waistband is elasticized for a comfortable fit. Made up in 100% cotton in your choice of one of our lovely prints. Machine or hand wash gently in cold water. Made in America by Recollections. Alicia is also wearing a petticoat, boots, earrings, and she carries a reticule - all are available priced separately. Romantic and comfortable too!
The dress arrived today. I was a bit hesitant to try it as I have not lost all the baby weight I accumulated. However, this dress is very forgiving to the womanly figure. It drops nicely, no bumps or lumps in sight. The sleeves are beautiful yet practical. Considering buying the same dress with a different pattern!
