Every wedding dress we offer is able to be ordered with what we call "special measurements." This essentially means the dress is produced to your exact body proportions and measurements. Below is a quick reference of items we typically ask for from our retailers when placing the order with us.
The most important thing to remember is, we are asking for your body measurements. This means when you're being measured, make sure you're not wearing any bulky clothing that would get in the way.
Also, you should not be measured wearing a wedding dress or using an existing wedding dress as a reference point. The dresses we make are all made with very high quality materials, meaning they're pretty delicate. Depending on how the dress samples are stored and treated, they'll inevitably sag and stretch a little. So remember, things like "take 4 inches off the bottom and 2 from the waist" is not going to work.
Lastly, make sure to wear a similar bra/undergarment and shoes you're planning on wearing the day of the wedding. These items affect the hem measurements.
By having our dress makers cut and produce the dress to your measurements this will greatly reduce the stress involved with fittings after the dress comes in.
