  • Most formal dresses usually run one or two sizes smaller than normal clothing.
  • If you find yourself in between sizes, go for the larger one because it is always easier to take in a dress than to let out.
  • All dresses, except for some wedding gowns with trimming at the bottom, are made to a standard length. Usually, if you are shorter than 5 feet 5 inches, you might need length alterations on your gown. 
  • Please Remember: different designers have different size charts.
