Sizing and How to Measure

How to find your size at HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE!   Each and every one of our custom handmade items are individually cut and sewn by the exact measurements listed on our Size Charts.   Our collections proudly handmade in Los Angeles at our studio and not factory produced!

You will need the following measurements to determine your size at HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE:

BUST: Measure around the fullest part of bust (preferably with the bra you plan on wearing underneath your dress)

WAIST: You are buying a high waist style of dress and will need to measure 2” above your belly button to determine your waist measurement.

UPPER BODICE: Measure from top of shoulder to 14” down. This is generally where this stretch knit dress will fall at your waist.

FULL BUST or PLUS SIZES: If you have a very full bust or are a plus sized gal: you may request at no additional charge to have Claire add length through the torso to offset the otherwise Empire Waist effect that sometimes occurs based on your individual body shape and size. Please measure down 14" from top of shoulder to waist to see if this falls in line with your natural waist. Write her a message to seller during checkout if you need additional length added through the torso. NOTE: this customization will make your dress a final sale item with no Returns or Exchanges made possible as it will no longer be considered a Standard Size at HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE. Please double check all measurements for accuracy before submitting them with your order.
