❤️✂️🖤 CLOSURE:
All HARDLEY DANGEROUS COUTURE All Wedding Dresses and Gowns are a Pull On style, NO ZIPPER is needed as my collection is constructed from designer stretch knit fabrics. My dresses and gowns offer the look of a structured garment with the comfort and ease of wearing stretch knit! You will love the look and feel (if you take the time to Measure properly, before buying your dress or gown).

All of my wedding dresses and gowns are constructed with Princess Seams that offer a custom fit without the addition of metal parts or boning. My strapless styles do NOT offer any additional interior support or padding and you may need to seek the assistance of the appropriate foundation undergarment when choosing a strapless style. Please visit your local seamstress or tailor to have cups added to your gown as my studio does not offer those services.




The Cherrybomb dress is unlined with a fit and flare style of swing dress that really twirls!


♠️✂️❤️ HOW TO MEASURE ❤️✂️♠️
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.
