how to measure myself

so, we basically need three measurements to determine your dress size...

1. bust - place the tape measure across your back, around to the front and over the apex of the bust.

2. waist - the smallest part of your torso between the bust and hips.

3. hip - the fullest part of the body below the waist...  approximately 8 inches (20 cm) below the waist.

 don't pull the tape measure too tight and avoid wearing too many clothes.

have a look at the picture to get your body measurements the correct way.
compare with our size chart to find your perfectly fitting size.






In general, changes are always possible with our styles.
However, it's important to first determine your correct dress size. Measure yourself using our size chart at the bust, hips, and waist. The largest factor determines your size.
If you are uncertain about choosing the right size, please feel free to contact our customer service directly. // +49 89 2000 752 52
Possible alterations:
Changes in length are always possible. The character of the style remains the same either way. This also applies to sleeve lengths, including jackets and blazers.
Modifications in the width up to one size are possible in most cases.
Does your dress seem to be too wide in the front of the torso? In many cases, this is simply due to the front length of the dress. Not everyone's torso is the same length. Usually, this can be easily fixed by pinching at the shoulder or dividing seam.
bulging zipper can also appear due to the difference in torso lengths. Nevertheless, even zippers can be shortened without any difficulty.
Even styles made out of delicate materials, for example, our shimmering stretch satin duchesse, can be altered. The stitches will be nearly invisible.
In general, we recommend working directly with a seamstress of your trust or visiting one of our boutiques. However, distance should not prevent you from obtaining your dream style. In many instances, depending on the complexity of the alteration, we will be able to help you out. Feel free to make an appointment with our experts and tailors for a virtual, yet very individual and personal fitting via video call.
