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.

This stunning ensemble is made up of a black velvet jacket, a black lace chemisette, and a shimmery taffeta skirt. You will adore wearing the fitted jacket, which features simple lapels that fold back to reveal a "V" shaped neckline, long sleeves with deep cuffs, and self-covered buttons down the front - all in plush black velvet. The neckline is filled in with a chemisette, (we would call it a dickey) which has a high collar. The full skirt is generous enough to accommodate a hoop, and is made up in your choice of rich iridescent taffeta, and has a deep flounce at the hemline. You get to choose a drawstring closure, or elastic at the waist. Content is cotton velvet, acetate taffeta and lace. Please dry clean only. Proudly made by Recollections in America. Emily is also wearing a hat, gloves, an extra full crinoline, and boots; all are available priced separately. Perfect for your next fabulous outing!
