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.

delightful! The separate skirt is long and full flounced, creating a very attractive
appearance. Skirt has a train but may be bustled by tying up the twill tape inside
the skirt. Elastic waist. Hand wash cold. Hang dry. Iron. 100% cotton calico. Poly lace and ribbon trim. The model
is wearing a crinoline underneath, gloves, boots, and carrying a fan, all of which
are priced separately. Designed and made proudly by Recollections in America!
I ordered this in the nasturtium print (white with scattering of red flowers. Fit like it was tailored for me. I am 5'9" and 2__ pounds. Makes me feel like I was 18 again. As I live in Tampa, I wore it for a Christmas event. The fabric is substantial enough to elegant yet the calico skirt left me far cooler than friends wearing jeans. Just beautiful.

I love this style and think it's becoming on just about anyone. I ordered Linette in the QUEEN ANN fabric. It's beyond beautiful! The fabric is beautiful, very high quality with a nice feel and drape to it. I got several complements the first time I wore it! Thank you to everyone at Recollections for another beautiful outfit!

This dress is so flattering on every figure. My mother tried it on, she is a lot shorter and rounder than I am and it looked nice on her as well. The cut of the jacket is so nice. The material is heavy but not hot, perfect for summer teas. After taking my measurements I ordered the XXXL and it fit perfectly. It comes true to size. The bustle is really easy to undo and re-tie.
