We aide with selection of the correct size and have a near 100% fitting rate with the method we use and will fit to your largest proportion. If you fall between sizes and need alterations WE DO NOT accept returns, if you find out afterwards your alterations are too costly. You must do your due diligence to build in your alteration costs to the budget. We will be happy to help wit well reviewed recommendations.
You also MUST select the size according to your BUST WAIST and HIP measurements, NOT your usual size. This is due to the fact the gowns run at least one size smaller and the application of beading reduces stretch to around 1-2cm only. We check you have done this on most orders but cannot be held responsible if you select your usual size without reading the item description. Common in all dress making, items are hand made, so a 2-3cm deviation can be present in the final article.
PLEASE SEND US YOUR MEASUREMENTS AFTER CHECKOUT SO WE CAN SELECT THE BEST SIZE FOR YOU OR WE CAN SEND YOU A MEASURING GUIDE SHOULD YOU NEED IT.
PLEASE NOTE: **GOWNS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED WITHOUT INITIAL CONFIRMATION OF YOUR MEASUREMENTS. **

TROUBLE SHOOTING SIZING - also for people falling in between sizes, requiring alterations.
To all of our lovely international customers, before returning an item for sizing issues and incurring fees, you may see a solution in our sizing help section below. Small low cost alterations can be more of a viable options for anyone experiencing sizing issues as these are not covered in our return policy for made to order items.
LOOSE AREAS ON BUST - alteration involving a tuck under armpit area at side seam.
TIGHT AREAS ON BUST - alterations involving opening up under the arm (only possible on sleeveless) at side seam.
HEMMING - Pinning temporarily if you don’t have time for a hemming alteration. A quick running stitch by a local tailor would nit be costly.
WAIST TIGHT- Add a wider elasticated zip. Can be an expensive alteration so get a few quotes from a local tailor.
WAIST LOOSE- Get a waist alteration bringing in at the seams. Can be expensive but always shop around. Prices ranging from $150-$450 within Australia.
