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.

Beautiful Corrina outfit!
I ordered two Corrina outfits in copper and red.
They are wonderful! I get so many complements on them,
and they are very comfortable to wear. I especially love
the style, so Victorian. I would love to have this outfit
in every color!

The Corrina is very well made and beautiful in the green taffeta. It is sure to be admired and even envied at the Dickens Festival.

This dress is amazing! The fit is perfect and very flattering. Sometimes I have a problem with dresses that button down the front pulling at the bust. This dress does not do that at all. The taffeta is substantial, there is no show through or pulling of the seams. The dress is very well made and I can't wait to show it off. I bought it in plum and plan to wear it to a steampunk event in a couple of weeks. The only possible drawback is that because the dress is heavy, I just might cook in the California heat. Oh well, the price we pay for beauty... Right? I highly recommend this dress!

Beautiful Wedding Dress
I wore this for my Victorian themed wedding and received so many compliments! I had the hat, gloves, and parasol, too.
