Features of Ginger Include:
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 Ginger because of the empire cut. Ginger 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 Ginger 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. Additional fabric is available for order if needed to add to the waistline and/or sides.
Fabric and Care
Ginger is made from a 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 chiffon means Ginger will hold up over multiple washes so you can make the most of your dress.
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.
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.
Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
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.
Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
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.
Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
