Out Of Town Bridesmaids
Hey there out-of-town bridesmaid, we got you!
We know that bridesmaids aren’t always nearby, so we make it as easy as possible to get your gown! We recommend being measured by a professional seamstress or bridal stylist, but if that’s not possible, grab a friend and check out our measuring guide! We recommend having your friend measure your bust, waist, and hip three separate times, to make sure the measurements are as accurate as possible. Once you have your measurements, give us a call and we can guide you the rest of the way! We’ll walk you through the sizing of your dress, and give you our recommendation based on your measurements. Be sure to let us know if you are expecting, or if you anticipate any weight loss or gain, so we can factor that in also. Ultimately, it’s your dress and the size we order is completely up to you, but we’re here to offer our expertise and give you our suggestion for the best fit. You will almost certainly need alterations to make your dress a perfect fit, but we’re here to help you select get the best size option!
Some things to note:
Bridesmaid manufacturers DO NOT offer standard sizing.
Most bridesmaid dresses run smaller than street clothes.
If you are 5'8" and above you may need additional length.
Additional charges may apply and vary per manufacturer.
Your measurements are used along with a size chart to help determine the best size for you.
Dresses are not made to customers' measurements, and in most cases, additional tailoring is necessary.
Bombshell Bridal consultants RECOMMEND sizes based on your measurements and manufacturers' size chart.
DO NOT MEASURE YOURSELF!
1. Start with your bust. This is taken around the fullest part of your bust. Don't pull the tape measure too tight - just so it fits snugly.
2. Take your waist measurements. Your waist measurement reflects the narrowest part of your waist. For most women, this is about an inch above your belly button.
3. Take a hip measurement. Your hip measurement usually reflects the fullest part of your hips, so it is roughly the area you sit on when you sit down.
