There are two sizes that describe a wedding dress:

  1. The size on the dress label.
  2. The dress owner's typical or "street" size - this is the size the owner would purchase most often if shopping at stores such as The Gap or Ann Taylor.

Because wedding dress label sizing varies greatly among designers, all wedding dresses on PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com are listed by the seller's street size. Listing by street size, hopefully, takes some of the guesswork out of what size category to browse.

Before you commit to buying a dress make sure to:

  • Buy Within Your Size Range
    It is important that you buy a dress within your size range. It is much easier to take a dress in a size or two than to try and let it out. Especially if the dress has already been altered; most manufacturers only leave 1/2-1" of materials to allow for letting a dress out. 

    If a dress does not fit when you receive it you will not be able to return it for a refund via PayPal unless the seller misrepresented the tag size or alterations done.
     
  • Look Up The Designer's Sizing Chart
    Every designer will fit differently - try to find the size chart for the dress you are buying to confirm if an unaltered version of the size you are looking to buy would fit, then consider the alterations the seller has done and determine if the dress will work for your body.
