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 tumble dry low. 100% cotton. Poly lace. Designed and made proudly by Recollections in America! Korynn is wearing a crinoline under the dress, earrings, boots, and gloves - all priced separately.
Ordered this dress in blue check calico, and it is gorgeous. I ordered a size smaller than I usually would wear and it fits like a glove over my corset. I recommend leaving your measurements as I didn't for my first 2 dresses and they were a size too big. I will be back for more!! Stunning dress!!

LOVE, LOVE,it is so sweet! the grey swirl very beautiful and not to thin. The fit is perfect for me. This is such a beautiful dress,I was at first afraid that it would be to much for daily use, because I only wear recollections, but it is PERFECT! You made me very happy.
Compliments for the ladies and many thanks.
