What's the difference between street size and label size?

Street Size VS Label Size

All dresses on our site are meant to be listed in US size. The seller may state other sizes in their description, such as Europe or UK sizing :).

What's the difference?

Label size is the size the designer includes on the tag of the dress itself. This sizing varies greatly among designers and can often run much larger in size than you would typically wear. Example: If you're usually a size 8, you could be a label size 10,12, or even 14!

If there are no alterations done on the dress, then it should be the same measurements as what would be listed on the designer's website.

Street size is the size you'd typically wear at a mainstream store like The Gap.

Our listings include both label and street size information as well as measurements. You can ask the seller what their measurements are and how the dress fits to get a comparable idea of how it would fit you and what alterations you may need if you purchased this dress.

It is important that you buy a dress within your size range. It is much easier to take a dress in a size or two than to try and let it out. Especially if the dress has already been altered; most manufacturers only leave 1/2-1" of materials to allow for letting a dress out.
