- Pass along your current bust, waist, and hip measurements.
- Attach a picture of yourself wearing the dress.

A Note on Sizing
We are here to help you feel confident in your purchase. We strongly advise that you utilize our many fit tools including 1) your personal Style Consultant 2) the Brideside Box try-at-home program 3) designer specific sizing charts and 4) the Brideside measuring guide.
When you provide your bust, waist and hip measurements your personal style consultant is available to help you confirm your best dress size before any final orders are manufactured. Her recommendation is also based on Brideside’s knowledge of designer-specific dress construction and fit.
If you fall in between sizes, a Brideside Style Consultant may recommend that you order to your largest measurement, since it is often easier to have a dress taken in then have it released.
Our Thoughts On Alterations
Because the designer dresses are not custom to your measurements, they will require alterations for a perfect fit — whether that be hemming the skirt or tightening the bodice. Bridesmaid dresses are more structured than everyday dresses (aka no spandex or lycra) and naturally will not adhere to the shape of your body. Brideside cannot guarantee that dress alterations will not be necessary. Brideside does not contribute funds toward alterations.
