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.

Period correct outfit and exceptional customer service
I am a WW1 and Edwardian re-enactor. I belong to a national WW1 commemoration group and have a large event this Saturday. No one has this WW1 Food Conservation uniform and...... in every size. Not only is that impressive.... but, as always, the workmanship is excellent. The uniform is period authentic and I only ordered this less than two weeks ago and it's here. Customer Service, quality and authenticity. Recollections- number one!!!!!!
