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.

I ordered this dress a month ago, Recollections ran out of the white taffeta, got it in the day before my need date. So this was the process; 10/27/2015 White taffeta arrives from supplier, the production department received it, made the dress with my specific alterations, packed it, and sent it off to UPS, and I got it the next day. So in short...THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for everyone's hard and diligent work. I sincerely appreciate it ! To all the customer service agents, Barb and Athena & all the seamstresses,especially the ones responsible for making my white taffeta Marelda ballgown...You ladies are the best !
