Size guide for Allure Bridesmaids 2-28
Please note these are body measurement guidelines for online orders only. Please ask your in-store consultant for assistance with measuring and ordering styles available at The Wedding Shoppe.
We recommend having a professional take all of your measurements. The designer’s sizing chart establishes a standard size. Your measurements are taken to determine the closest size. The dress you order will not be custom-made to your exact measurements, therefore alterations will be necessary to custom fit the dress. It is extremely important that you order a size to fit the largest part of your body. If you are in between sizes, the designer recommends ordering the larger size and having the dress altered down. For more information on measuring, visit our measurement guide.
How To Measure
Do not measure over clothing. Measure with undergarments similar to those you will wear with your dress. The measurement tape should be placed around your bust, waist, and hips and should not be pulled too tight or have too much slack.
Measure across the back and fullest part of the bust (not under the bust).
Measure across the narrowest part of the natural waist. Bend to one side to find the natural waist.
Standing with feet together, measure at the fullest part of the hip.
Length / Hollow to Hem
Designers make their dresses with a standard hollow to hem measurement based on the size of the dress (See size charts for details). This standard measurement varies between designers. Designers recommend considering extra length if you are taller than 5’8” including heel height. Extra length is typically 1” to several inches longer and will vary between designers. Availability and fees are dependent on each designer.
Choosing a Size
On each product page, there is a link to each designer's size chart. Compare your bust, waist, and hip measurements to the size chart. It is extremely important that you order a size to fit the largest part of your body. If you are in between sizes, the designer recommends ordering the larger size and having the dress altered down.
