Satin: A heavy, smooth fabric with a high sheen on one side; very common in bridal gowns.

How do I decide what size to order?
You can choose a standard size or give us your custom measurements. Please view our Size Chart>> Prior to selecting your size to order, we suggest reviewing the information provided in How to Measure>> Even if there is some fluctuation in the size you need, all our dresses are made with a margin for modification or alteration. The modification or alteration can be made by your local tailor.
What modifications and alterations are normally done to a dress to make it fit?
A number of alterations can be made:
1) Side seams and Back Seams - The side seams and back seam in the torso can be taken in or let out to make a wedding dress fit a bride. This is true even for gowns ordered to size. Wedding gowns are usually made to allow the side seams to be let out up to 3 inches or 1-2 inches. Additionally, the back seam often can be let out slightly to size up further.

2) Shoulders - It is also common for shoulder seams to be taken in to bring up a gown.
3) Hem - The length of a dress can be shortened only and is affected by the height of the shoe you are planning to wear. Some gowns can only be shortened from the waist. Other gowns can only be shortened by taking up the hemline.
4) Bustle - The bustle is a way to hook the train up in the back so that the dress can be worn comfortably after the ceremony. Bustling a dress is part of the alterations for any gown that has an attached train.
