Sizing & alterations
Choosing your size
We no longer offer a Made to Measure service, as we have found that a better outcome is almost always achieved through ready to wear sizing, in combination with minor alterations once you receive your dress.
If you intend to order your dress at our Melbourne flagship boutique, or at one of our Australian or international stockists, your in-store stylist will be able to assist you in selecting the correct size.
When placing an order through our online boutique, you will need to select from the sizes available: XXS, XS, S, M and L. To choose your correct size, please ask a friend to assist you to take your measurements, then use our sizing guides to select the size that best corresponds to your measurements. Our Online Stylist, Bek, is always available to assist you with sizing via email.
Each dress in our online boutique includes a link to the correct sizing guide for that style. Sizing details are specific to different Anna Campbell collections, so please visit the product page for your dress to view the correct sizing information.
Please note that all Anna Campbell gowns are made to a standard length. If you require extra length, please contact our Online Orders Manager by email who can discuss this with you.
Will I need alterations?
Forever Entwined, Gossamer, Spirit and Signature Collections
If ordering a dress from these three collections, you will require minor alterations upon receipt of your dress, including to shorten the hem and secure the straps to the perfect length, as well as any minor adjustments you might prefer.
If you purchase your dress through our online boutique you will need to source these alterations privately. We usually recommend allowing at least three weeks before your wedding for alterations to be completed.
A ‘How to Tie’ guide specific to your dress is included on the product page for your dress in our online boutique. How your dress is tied will dramatically affect how your dress fits and sits on your body.
If ordering a dress from the Ceremony collection, alterations should only be required to hem the dress to the perfect length. Please note that if purchasing a dress with horsehair braid or other trimming, this will be shipped unattached to your dress. This reduces the time and cost of alterations, as the trim can simply be attached once the dress is hemmed to the correct length.
Sometimes small tweaks may be required to the fit of the bodice underlay to ensure it is sitting beautifully, but these can be performed with ease by a trusted seamstress. Please email our Online Orders Manager if you have any questions relating to your alterations and we will be happy to provide advice.
