Size Chart
 
Fitting/Size Guide

To ensure your dress fits correctly, please take time to watch the above video and read our size guide
The 5 points listed below show how to measure for every style of dress:

1.Bust
The largest part of the bust to be measured in inches, threading the tape measure under the arms with arms hung by the side and feet together.

2.Waist
The smallest part of the waist in inches, find the natural crease in your waistline by bending to one side. Measure the part where this crease is, standing up straight, feet together, arms hung by the side.

3.Hips
The largest part around the hips and bottom to be measured in inches. Standing feet together, arms hung by the side.

4.Hollow to length – How to measure for a short dress
To see where your favourite dress will fall on your legs, measure from your hollow at the front of your neck to the appropriate length of the dress as shown below in inches. (The hollow is the part of the front of the neck between the two collar bones).

Lily, Sophia, Chloe, Mia, Kylie – 34 inches hollow to the hem.
Faith, Alexa – 36 inches hollow to the hem.
Lucy – 42 inches hollow to the hem.


5.Hollow to hem
Measuring from the hollow to the floor in flat shoes or barefoot will give you your hollow to hem measurement in inches. (The hollow is the part of the front of the neck between the two collar bones). All the long dresses are between 59 – 60 inches long hollow to hem. By adding on in inches the height of the heels you intend to wear you can make a judgement where the dress will fall in relation to the floor. If you are taller you may want to wear a smaller heel and if you are smaller and in high heels you may still need some alteration to make the length fit.

How to measure
When getting measured for your Ruby Prom dress it’s really important to only wear necessary clothing that is tightly fitted to the skin such as underwear or vest and leggings. Do not wear any bulky clothing such as jeans or a jumper as this may add inches to the measurements which will affect the fit of the dress. You should also be barefoot or only wear flat shoes, standing with your feet together and your arms hung by your side. It is also really important not to pull the tape measure too tightly or hold it too loosely as these are fitted garments and should be worn as such. Remember you may be a different dress size in our size chart than your normal clothes. Don’t worry though this is the nature of a fitted garment.

Sizing Advice

Importance of accurate measuring
It is vital not to pull the tape measure too tightly or hold it too loosely to get your true measurements and an accurate fit of your dress. When measuring for a fitted garment it is important to only wear necessary clothing that is tightly fitted to the skin such as underwear or vest and leggings. Do not wear any bulky clothing such as jeans or a jumper as this may add inches to the measurements which will affect the fit of the dress.

Corset backs and zip backs
Dresses with lace up corset style backs are dual sizing e.g 8 – 10. This allows for more flexibility within the size chart. The dress can be worn tighter or looser depending on the wearer’s exact sizing and comfort. Dresses with a zip back are one size and will only allow approximately 1 inch movement in the size chart.

Length fitting guide

Short dresses
  • Height of the wearer - Hollow to hem measurement. (follow animation guide)
If you want to know where the length of a short dress will fall on you, you can measure from the hollow of your neck (between your collar bones) to the following lengths in inches. Please choose appropriate style.
  • Lily, Sophia, Chloe, Mia, Kylie – 34 inches hollow to the hem.
  • Faith, Alexa – 36 inches hollow to the hem.
  • Lucy – 42 inches hollow to the hem.

Long dresses
Height of the wearer - Hollow to hem measurement. (follow animation guide) All long dresses are 59 – 60 inches from hollow to the hem. You may decide to wear a heel with your prom dress. By adding on the height of the heel to your hollow to hem (measured in flat shoes or barefoot) you will have your overall hollow to hem measurement. You will be able to see where the dress will fall in relation to the floor. If the dress is too long it may be advisable to undertake alterations. Most areas will have a local seamstress that can shorten your dress to fit properly.


Alterations
Depending on your measurements or height you may need some minor alterations to make your Ruby Prom dress fit perfectly. There are many places locally that will carry out an alteration service. Example alterations that maybe required are:
  • Shortening the straps on a dress
  • Taking in the bust or waist
  • Altering the length of the hem
