Virtual Styling Videocall
We understand that no bride will fit seamlessly into one shape or size, but standard guidelines can be useful in understanding your proportions and body shape while helping you to confidently select silhouettes that play up your most flattering features.
Our bridal gowns are made to a standard dress size and height (155cm shoulder to floor). Once you have purchased your gorgeous gown, you have the flexibility to have it adjusted and customised by your preferred seamstress. Our detailed sizing charts will assist you in selecting the closest standard size relative to your body measurements.
If you find that you are between sizes, we always recommend ordering up a size. You can then have your gown altered for a tailored fit as you get closer to your wedding date. Every M&A Bride dress style can be made-to-order in standard AU Size 6 – 22.
Our M&A Bride styling team would be delighted to offer virtual assistance via videocall throughout the process of taking your measurements and selecting “The One”. We can also help to match your measurements to our generic size chart. Please remember that most of our brides get alterations for that perfect fit and this may be something to note when budgeting for your dream dress.
Please note that all adjustments and tailoring is at your own expense post-production of your gown and is not the responsibility of M&A Bride.
