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.

You get to select the color of the shimmering dupioni for the body of the gown, and from three colors of lace to make this dress uniquely yours. The bodice has a square neckline that presents a long spill of lace, which cascades down the front of the bodice, and over the sleeves and back. The sleeves are fitted to the arm, and topped with a generous pouf at the sleeve head. The bodice dips to a deep 'V' at the waist front. Hooks and eyes close the back. The floor length skirt has a comfortable elastic waist, and may be worn 'trained' or bustled up using ties underneath. Proudly designed and made in America by Recollections. Polyester dupioni and lace - please dry clean. Liesa completes the look with gloves, jewelry, hat, and a crinoline underneath, and all are available
priced separately. So beautiful!
Beautiful material and well made. The dress is beautiful but I had a hard time getting the top to fit. I ordered a medium, same size I had ordered the Marilla Polonaise Set, but learned later if it has stays in the top you need a larger size. Sent the medium back and they sent me a large. The large fit around my waist and bust and the sleeve length was good. However, the shoulders wouldn't stay up, they kept falling off my shoulder and hung down my arm. I had to take a tuck in the back on both sleeves to keep them up. Received a lot of compliments on the dress.
