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 top seller of Recollections and for good reason! This beautiful fancy silk gown is everything a woman would want in a Victorian ball gown, a wonderful addition to any wardrobe. It is styled after the 19th century, a time of fabulous fashion. This classic taffeta gown has fitted and boned bodice. The neckline is low scooped and the dress has a slight V-shape to the front and back waist. Short shirred sleeves are off-the shoulder. Priced separately in the photograph are the choker, the gloves, the boots, the fan, and the crinoline that the Jami is wearing. Recollections clothing is proudly designed and made in America.
The quality of this dress is AMAZING. This is the third dress I have bought from Recollections. They all have been PERFECT. The time they spend to make the dress shows in all the detail. These are not your typical costume dresses. These are quality fabric, embellishments, and lace.
I can not recommend this dress or this company enough. It fits like a glove and looks great, very flattering on a pear shape body, like myself.
