What about Bridal Gown Sizing?
A commonly asked question is about bridal sizing. Wedding gowns size usually smaller than size of the normal street clothing size. For example, if you are a 8 in regular dresses you are most likely to be a size 10 in a wedding gown. So ussualy in order to find your bridal size you need to add one size to your normal street clothing size.
* Remember that the dress sometimes takes a few months to be made, so make sure you leave enough time for alterations.
How many sizes can a gown be altered?
Generally, gowns can be sized down a few sizes by a qualified wedding dress seamstress.
What is a "hollow-to-hem" measurement?
It is a measurement from the hollow of your neck to the floor.
What alterations are normally done to a dress to make it fit?
1) Bust and Waist alterations - Taking in/out sideseams or backseam in order to make a wedding dress fit a bride. Wedding gowns are usually made to allow the sideseams to be taken out up to 3 inches or 2 sizes (For example: size 10 to size 14).
2) Shoulders - usually shoulder seam can be taken in to bring up a gown.
3) Hem - according to the height of the bride and the shoes she is planning to wear the length of a dress can be shortened.
4) Bustle - many wedding dresses have not detachable long trains. In order for the bride to move freely at the reception our seamstress can add a bustle when doing the alterations. Which means attaching the train to the back of the dress.
