Sizing for Girls
We know that online shopping can be a challenge with no way to try on the clothes, so we want to help you as much as possible. Below is a sizing guide to give you a good idea of how our sizes run.
We have made the chart as accurate as possible, but variations in style, material, or personal fit preference can always cause slight differences, so this should be used as a guide. Since our designs are crafted to suit almost any body type, we do not accept custom orders. All of our designs are in stock and ready to ship.
If you are unsure of your measurements, we have provided a Measuring Guide below to help you accurately gauge your numbers.
Please consider that pieces may still need alterations, even with accurate measurements. Since no one is the perfect ratio, outfits will often need small alterations in certain places. This is especially true for occasion dresses, such as wedding and prom!*
*If you are placing an order for a wedding party, PLEASE contact us before placing the order so that we can make sure we have everything in stock.
**Please Note: Since plus-sizes and longer-length garments require more fabric and manufacturing time, the price for these items will be higher.
HOW TO MEASURE
Below are some tips on taking your measurements so you can accurately reference our sizing guide above. A few things to note:
If possible, have someone else measure you for better accuracy
Measure over undergarments
Keep tape measure level (parallel to the ground) and close, not tight
It’s important to take accurate measurements and then to order based on those measurements. Measuring too tight to the skin could result in a piece that hugs your body too tightly, or adding additional inches onto your measurement will result in a baggy outfit, so please take care when taking your measurements.
Bust: With arms relaxed at your sides, measure the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape parallel to the floor, under the armhole and around your back about where your bra strap is.
Waist: Measure around the narrowest part of your torso at your natural waistline. To find your natural waistline, bend to one side. There will usually be a crease where you bend. Often it is just below your ribcage. That's your natural waistline. Don't worry if this seems higher than where you actually wear your skirts. Keep the tape measure parallel to the floor as you measure all the way around your torso.
Hips: Standing with feet together, measure around your body at the broadest part of your hips. This will include the fullest part of your backside too and should be just about where your legs meets your torso. (approximately 8" below natural waistline.)
Length: Measure from top of shoulder (where shoulder seam would be) , to your desired length for the dress to end.
