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 love the details of this charming afternoon walking dress. A delicate lace trim brings attention to both the collar and the pronounced cuffs. That's not all the bodice has to brag about - two rows of covered buttons line the entire front, meeting a sharp point at the bottom of the jacket.
A dramatic bustle is the height of late-Victorian fashion. You will love experimenting with it's size using the bustle ties underneath the skirt. Three rows of thin gros grain ribbon circle the overskirt, providing a lovely connection with the cuffs of the jacket.
There's more! A thick row of ruffled lace tops the thick ruffled hem of the dress. From start to finish you will leave a not-to-be-forgotten impression.
