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 turn heads wearing this beautifully detailed three-piece bustle dress ensemble! Made up in your choice of colors in shimmering silk. The fitted and boned bodice features a wide square neckline and a back hook-and-eye closure. The hemline of the bodice dips to a flattering V at the center front, and then continues to skim low over the hips and rises in the back to reveal the flirty little bustle. Short poufed sleeves finish the look. The neckline, sleeves and hemline are all trimmed out in lace. The flirty little overskirt is made up in the same fabric as the bodice and is trimmed out using the same lace. The overskirt is shirred and gathered to drape gracefully over the satin underskirt, has a built-in bustle, and a drawstring waist for a perfect fit. The taffeta underskirt may be worn down for a trained effect, or bustled up. The hemline features intricate pleating. An elastic waist ensures comfortable wear. Proudly made in America by Recollections. Please dry clean only. Alicia is also wearing a crinoline, boots, jewelry and gloves, and carrying a fan, which are all available priced separately.
