Measurement Charts are of flat garments and can be deceiving. We work hard to have a consistent Medium fit model and often double check our production 2XL piece on our 2XL fit model as well to make sure you can normally stick to the same size in our garments.
Stretch Velvet only has a 2 way stretch, not the 4 way of our spandex dresses. If you are between sizes you can go down but we do not recommend sizing down a full size (if you are a Large in our ponte dresses get the Large, don't size down to a Medium if you size down to a medium in wraps/essential non velvet dresses).
Available in two lengths: Long and Short. Long is intended for talls between 5'6" and up (though 5'6"-5'10" may still want to hem it further!) and Short is intended for people under 5'5" (and the shorter shorties may want to hem it even more). Both the Sleeves and the Hem are shorter on the Short!
Christina-Marie has a 38” Bust, 29” Waist, and is 5’7”. She is modeling the Sample Medium Long.
For best care, Dry Clean this dress. However, it can be washed in cold and dried flat (not in a dryer) and will be fine. Spandex does not like heat!
You may wish to alter the hem or the length of the sleeves, but we are unable to hem them in-studio. We recommend getting the dress and trying it on before making any hemming decisions. You are best to chalk/pin the changes you want to take to a tailor. Because of the two way stretch of the velvet you may not need to get it hemmed if your body stretches the velvet out more because as you stretch it one way it shortens in the other direction.
