What sizes are your sample gowns?

Bridal sizing is very different to normal clothing sizes. That is, wedding dresses tend to run smaller than your regular size.

We use the US standard sizing system and most wedding gowns can be ordered in size 0 through 16. Our in-store sample  ranges from size 8 – 12.

We do not usually have plus size sample gowns in-store.
