Previously Prom , bridesmaid, cocktail and evening dresses were normally made to measure or alterations were needed if bought of the rail, however these dresses often cost at least £200 up for a simple dress or £50 for a simple alteration such as sewing up the hem. Now buying standard sizes from high street shops has become more common practice, but only if your size is standard and most shops have different standards. As dresses are made from tops and skirts if you wear size 10 top it does not mean you will wear size 10 dress. Tops are made based on bust and bra size and leave a lot of space on the waist. For example if your bust is 33 or 34 inches and your waist between 26 to 30 inches then you are size 10 and again for the same waist size of 26 to 30, but your bust is 35 or 36 then you are size 12. Leaving a big space on the waist for tops does not seem to be a problem, but dresses are made to fit the waist other wise there would be a lot of spare material gathered at the waist looking unsightly. Dresses also need to fit on the hips and it is not uncommon to have a different size top and skirt further complicating matters.
We are a fair trade company that make very small profit margins and give customer a good price. We like our dresses to fit our customers well and want to get it right first time because returned items are costly which is why other websites and retail shops add 3 to 4 times profit margins to cover the cost of returns. We think it is unfair for other customers to pay an expensive price to cover the cost of items returned from customers who order incorrectly. That is why we ask you to order wisely and why we make your dress to your measurements.
