Please note that your dress size may differ from your regular clothing size. Please carefully check the measuring guide on our website and submit your Bust, Waist, Full Hips and Hallow to Floor measurement (including your shoe height). We will advise your closest size, based on our sizing chart. Our dresses are available to purchase in standard sizes only (no custom measurements are accepted). It is your responsibility to ensure that we have the correct measurements and if you would like us to add or deduct a few centimetres to your current measurements, we must be notified in writing before you place your order.

It is your responsibility to ensure you take correct measurements for the Goods. We do not take any responsibility for incorrect measurements or information provided to us by you. In the case where we measured you, you have to get re-measured by a professional seamstress to confirm your measurements.
We highly recommend you to select a larger size if you are in between two sizes and have the Goods altered to fit you at your own cost. We don’t carry enough stock to exchange the Goods for different Goods, only different sizes of the same design of the Goods if and when available.
We highly recommend you not to buy a dress that you have not seen and / or tried on in person as each dress is made individually and the fit on you will vary as there may be some variances.
Final fitting alterations may be needed to get the perfect fit and/or desired look. There is no way to the determine the extent of alterations and whether alterations will be needed to the goods before the goods are ordered.

Any alteration(s) you may require in order to resize the Goods, is to be paid by you. Unique Bridal Collection cannot be held responsible for any sizing or fitting issues. It is highly recommended that you choose a lace-up back for the closure of the dress. Should alterations be needed, we can refer you to a seamstress or you may elect to retain your own alterer.

Unique Bridal Collection takes no responsibility for any changes made to the Goods after collection or delivery.
