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.

A lovely Victorian calico dress for an evening of dancing with friends! The fitted calico bodice of this dress closes in the front and features a beautiful wide lace trimmed V-shaped neckline. The sleeves are elbow length and flounced with lovely calico and lace. The overskirt, also trimmed in lace, is shirred up along the bottom revealing the solid lace-trimmed underskirt. Machine cold wash or hand wash and dry gently. 100% cotton. Poly lace. Designed and made proudly by Recollections in America! The models are wearing a crinoline, boots, jewelry and they are priced separately.
My darling pink and green floral Gisele arrived in time for me to be the toast of the tea. Frothing with ivory lace, the dress was beautifully turned out. I did have to nip the waist in a bit, despite being the exact measurements on the size, so I would say the fit is quite generous on the garments and to feel free to get the lower size if you are on the bubble between sizes. All of the finish work was impeccable, and I would not have worried if I was suddenly transported through time to the Victorian era. Thanks!
