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 are lovely with just a little bit of spice when you wear our Victorian silk style dress. Spice is just one of the rich diamond-patterned textured silk colors from which to choose. The dress is also available in rich Garnet, beautiful Berry, cool Slate Blue, or summery Thyme.
This silk dress features an open collar and a front button closure making it easy to don and doff. Our deep-V fitted bodice is figure-flattering. A generously gathered skirt flows elegantly from the bodice. Puffed upper sleeve tapers to a comfortably form-fitting long sleeve.
Silk is the ultimate fabric for comfort and care. You will stay cooler during summer and warmer during winter. It retains its shape well while providing elasticity, too! We recommend hand washing your dress in cold water and hanging to dry, or dry clean.
Alicia completes the look with boots, jewelry, gloves, and crinoline, and they are available priced separately. Our Victorian style silk dress is designed and proudly made in the USA by Recollections and is available in size XS to XXXXL.
