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.

Cranberry Bead Hat Pin
Perfect for holiday wear, or for any outfit that will benefit from the rich red color, you will enjoy wearing this lovely hat pin. Ours is made up using a faceted red bead above and below the cranberry-colored bead that is the focal point. Each bead is supported with an antique silver-toned bead cap to add just a bit more sparkle.
Black Moonscape Bead Hat Pin
The special surface texture of the focal beads on this hat pin makes them look as though they have been rolled in sugar. This is the perfect pin for mourning attire, or for any ensemble that would benefit from just a bit of sparkle. We have added a crystal-studded roundel to support each bead for the extra shine they add.
Pearl and Gold Filigree Hat Pin
A large pearl-toned bead is the focal point of our lovely gold-and pearl hat pin. Small golden beads support the pearl, which is clasped in two petals of gold filigree.
Warm Honey Hat Pin
The color of these beads is well named! Two faceted beads flank the larger focal bead, all in shades of yummy caramel. Gold accents bring out the warmth of the color with flower-shaped bead caps surrounding the center bead. The lovely neutral tone of this hatpin will have you pairing it with nearly every hat in your wardrobe.
Just received my order, a wishlist item made possible by a recent discount offer. My goodness! 12 inches can span the broadest hat crown and pouffiest hair-do. And can also cause damage(not serious) to any masher or other miscreant. If the tip is lost, one can replace it with an earring finding (very handy!) I must put in a word about the decorative ends of the hatpins. So beautiful! There is pearl, there is a red (carnelian?), an amber, and one that is a delightful blackberry! Ladies, you have outdone yourselves.
