    How It Works:

    Order the samples of your choosing and we will ship them directly to your home along with a measuring tape, a prepaid shipping label and bag to send your dresses back to us in! You are allowed 3 days with the dresses - so gather your girls, grab some champagne and snap some pics. Have a "try-on" party in the comfort of your own home!

    Please note that the samples listed on this page are the only colors and sizes we have available in our sample stock. The selected color and size are also not guaranteed.

    We recommend ordering your sample in the size closest to your typical dress size. If that does not fit just the way you'd like, we recommend taking your bust, waist, and hip measurements and comparing them to our size chart to determine the size that you should order when placing your actual dress order.

    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 dress alterations.




     

    Hollow-to-Hem: Hold the measuring tape vertically starting at the indent in your neck area between your collarbones and below your throat. Then, keeping the tape taught, bring the tape to the floor to meet your toes. This is your hollow-to-hem, or hollow-to-floor, measurement. The motion is similar to taking your height measurement. 

    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 measurement.

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

    Choosing your correct size

    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. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. 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. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
