Please do not guess your size or base your order on the size you wear in everyday clothes. Special occasion dresses fit differently. Here's some advice from Sydney:

  1. Take a minute to take your measurements using a cloth measuring tape. Then, review our Sydney's Closet size chart to find the best size that will fit and flatter your curves.
  2. If you need some help, review our How to Measure page.
  3. Between dress sizes? Always take the larger size then plan on alterations.
  4. If you still need help finding the size that works best for you, Contact us for a personal fit consultation with an expert stylist.

The gown is stunning and arrived in time for my gig. It's a perfect performing gown. Thank you to the fabulous staff for helping me get the right size. It was perfect!

My dream dress!

I was looking for a classy ball gown to wear to a military ball. But I didn't want to look like I was Cinderella. This dress was perfect! The sequin top is very sophisticated and the lace waistband is even prettier in person.
