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 gently fitted bodice features a high lace-trimmed collar, and long sleeves with deep cuffs trimmed out in lace at the top of the cuff and at the wrist. The bodice back has a small V shaped yoke below the collar, and the front has a French Bodice panel trimmed out with more lace. A large bow sets off the bustle. The hem of the bodice extends into a shirred peplum which skims over the hips, and falls into deep lace-trimmed scallops. The lace trimmed overskirt matches the bodice, has a drawstring waist, and can be bustled up or left down to form a romantic train. The cotton underskirt has a deep flounce at the hem, which is trimmed out in gimp at the top and lace at the hemline. A comfortable elastic waist makes it easy to wear. Proudly made in America by Recollections. The model is also wearing a crinoline, boots, earrings and gloves, all are available priced separately. Absolutely enchanting!
First choose the print for the overdress and train, then choose the solid cotton color for the underskirt, front insert, collar and back yoke. Finally choose the trim color.
