    Fit and Sizing

    When taking measurements for this dress, we recommend paying attention to bust and rib cage measurements. Waist and hip measurements are not as important for Emma because of the higher waisted cut. Emma is an excellent dress for all figures because it is loose in the stomach and waist. This makes it comfortable, free flowing, and easy to wear. We recommend Emma for bridesmaids who are expecting because the fullness in the waistline is great for maternity wear.

    We recommend that pregnant women go up two sizes, depending on the stage of pregnancy. Emma can be hemmed to your desired length, and additional fabric is available if needed to add to the waistline and/or sides.

    The model pictured is 5’10” and is wearing a size 4 dress.

    Fabric and Care

    Emma is made from a crinkle chiffon fabric which is comfortable to wear and similar in quality to silk, but much easier to clean and care for. This dress is dry clean optional, but can also be washed regularly at home on a delicate cycle. Best of all, the exceptional quality of the crinkle chiffon means Emma will hold up over multiple washes so you can make the most of your dress.

    Measurement Guide - How to Measure for Your Size

    Taking Your Measurements

    For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn’t be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.

    Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it’s not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.

    Bust Size
    Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).

    Waist Size
    While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button. Stand up straight and do not “suck in” when taking this measurment.

    Hip size
    Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.

    Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5” (size 12), your waist measures 31” (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5” (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body.

    Depending on the fabric, a dress can be altered down up to 2 full sizes, but can be very difficult to let out as there is only about .5 inch of fabric to do so at the seams.
