  • Creating a beautiful dress for your pregnant bridesmaid (for a list of suitable styles, please contact ViCTOR)
  • Special size requirements outside of the standard 8-18 size range
  • Changes to a bridesmaid’s original measurements 
STANDARD SIZE GUIDELINES 
  • ViCTOR dresses are made in standard 8-18 sizes as below
  • If one of your bridesmaids is pregnant or falls outside of our standard 8-18 size guidelines, please contact us
  • Each bridesmaid will need to be measured either in the VICTOR workroom or by a professional dressmaker to establish the correct size before ordering

HELPFUL TIPS

  • Ensure your bridesmaid's go to a professional dressmaker to be measured
  • When measuring, measure the widest part of your bust & hips and narrowest part of your waist
  • It is always easier to take in a dress than let it out so if you are in-between sizes, choose the larger option
Dresses almost always require altering for a perfect fit for each bridesmaid including (but not restricted to) hemming, lengthen/shorten straps & taking in or letting out
