Finding the Right Size:
Please refer to the size chart to select the correct size for your dress. Keep in mind that historical costumes don't follow standard sizing, so getting an accurate fit is important for comfort and effectiveness. Here's a complete guide on how to measure yourself.
If your measurements don't align with the sizes on the chart, we recommend choosing the "custom size" option. After placing your order, submit your measurements through our Custom Request Form as soon as possible. Delay in receiving your measurements will also delay your order.
Made-to-order items cannot be returned. Please make sure you're certain about the size you choose. If unsure, opt for the custom fit option.
The Ann Dress is designed to be ankle length, offering a graceful look. Featuring a generous 3-meter span, it exudes elegance and style.
