Want to Know More About Watters Wedding Dresses? We’ve Got You Covered!
Vantana Watters started designing dresses for herself as well as family and friends all the way back in 1988. She wanted to create dresses that were truly unique and differed from the rest. After realizing that she had a real knack for designing dresses, she started up a company known as Watters with the rest of her family. Vantana made it her goal to create dresses that focused on drama, comfort, style, versatility, and individuality for all brides and bridesmaids. This goal in mind has quickly launched the Watters company to fame; they aren’t afraid to debut some daring pieces on the red carpet! If you’re looking for a truly unique piece, Watters will not disappoint.
Since launching the company, Watters had added three other collections: Wtoo, Willowby, and By Watters. Watters wedding dresses fall within the $350-$7500 price range. That is a large price range, but we’re going to break it all down for you by collection!

Watters offers a wide range of accessories that you can purchase with your gown! Check out a list of some of what they offer below:
Do they offer customization on their Watters wedding dresses? Although they do not offer direct customizations, they do offer a range of straps and sleeves that you can purchase to add to your gown!
Does Watters offer dresses other than bridal gowns? They most certainly do! Watters has an extensive collection of bridesmaid dresses to choose from! By Watters also markets their dresses as more than bridal gowns—they can also be purchased bridesmaid dresses, prom dresses, rehearsal dinner dresses, and the like! We love the diversity found in Watters!
Watters has multiple size charts. All of these size charts are for 2019 styles and beyond. If you’re purchasing a gown from an earlier collection, please refer to the Watters website for their previous size charts.
One of the top questions we get is whether or not a designer’s dresses are true-to-size. Watters wedding dresses are true-to-size, but their sizes do run smaller than retail’s sizes. This is common in the wedding industry!
If you’re looking to see what size you should order your dress, check out the bridal gown size chart for Watters wedding dresses! This size chart will be the most accurate way to see which size you should order your bridal gown in; however, we highly, highly recommend that you get fitted at a professional bridal salon to see which size you should be ordering your dress in. Your bridal consultants will be able to recommend the best size for you.
You can measure yourself to see which size you best align with according to this chart, but we do not recommend this method at all. If you measure incorrectly, you are putting your bridal gown at risk. If you have your heart set on measuring yourself for your bridal gown, please refer to our “How to Measure” guide.
The secret to ordering a bridal gown that will fit you best is to order a gown that will fit the largest part of your body. For example, if your bust and waist measure at a size 10 but your hips measure at a size 12, order a size 12 so that you can fit the largest part of your body in your dress and bring the rest of the dress in as necessary.
