How to Measure for Your Bridesmaid Gown
This is a special measuring instruction guide for out-of-town bridesmaids
To Ensure that you receive the size closest to your measurements we require the following 4 items:
• Bust: Measure around the fullest part of the bust and back with your bra on. (this is NOT your bra size)
• Waist: Smallest area of your torso. A couple of inches ABOVE your belly button. Pull tape measure taut. NOTE… this is NOT where you wear your jeans.
• Hips: Measure around largest part of your hip and bottom with feet together.
• Height: Without shoes. However if you are taller than 5”9” you may need to order extra length, and there is an extra fee of $25.00 for extra length.
$100.00 is the minimum required down payment to place your order.
Notes to Remember:
Please have a professional seamstress or someone familiar with sewing and measuring take your measurements.
Please do not take your measurements too tightly! Always measure over your undergarments for more precise measurements. Please do not give jeans or bra sizes.
When in doubt order bigger. You can ALWAYS take a gown in, but most gowns CANNOT BE LET OUT.
We recommend that all bridesmaids choose their size based on their largest measurement. The Bridesmaid gowns are not made to your bridesmaids measurements, they cut the dress based on the size chart. The dresses are NOT custom made.
For example: If your bust measures into a size 8, but your waist measurement puts you into a size 12, and your hip measurement puts you into a size 10….You should order a size 12…based on your largest measurement)
Alterations are an extra fee and you may choose any seamstress for your alteration needs. Formals of Litchfield does not provide a seamstress.
ULTIMATELY, you must choose the size of the gown you want to wear!
