Sizing Guide

Princess Dresses are organized in age groups. The sizing guide below is identical to that used by a leading UK High Street retailer. They agree with us that a chest measurement is a more accurate guide than age in choosing the correct size.

To calculate the chest measurement, just follow these four simple steps! The only tool you need is an inexpensive vinyl or fabric tape measure.

  1. Lay a dress that currently fits your little princess on a flat, hard surface, such as a table.
  2. Smooth the dress flat, paying particular attention to the underside, to remove any wrinkles. Ensure all buttons and zips are fastened.
  3. Measure the dress from one underarm seam to the other underarm seam directly under the armpits in inches. Multiply this figure by two, so that the back measurement is included. This is your little princess' chest size.
    (You may add 1 inch to this measurement to allow for growth if you want to but remember our sizes already include this).
  4. Compare the chest measurement you have taken with the guide to confirm what size to order.
