Measuring Guide

We offer our wedding dresses in all standard UK sizes but can also make to your precise measurements. Please see below for the measurements we need for made to measure wedding dresses, ignoring any that will not be relevant to your dress style (for example: ignore arm measurements for sleeveless dresses).

You can E-mail your measurements to us or detail them in the ‘Notes’ field when checking out.

On receipt of your order, we will send you through a fully detailed order confirmation so that you can rest assured that we have understood all of your order details completely.

Please note that even with fully made to measure dresses, we do suggest that you allow sufficient time just in case any final adjustments are necessary.
