FAQs

Why the names?

The names of our dresses were born out of the feedback we heard from women as they were trying them on for the first time during our focus groups and fit sessions.

Women were saying things like, ‘I look a dress size slimmer’ or ‘my tummy looks so much trimmer’ and ‘oh my god, I look like I’ve dropped a dress size’. Not only was it amazing to hear that the dresses we’d designed had made women feel so confident, but it also inspired us when choosing our dress names.

I am between sizes, which one should I choose?

After listening to our Perfect Dress Company community on social media, we decided on the dual sizing option for our dresses. A lot of feedback from women was that you found ordering online a challenge as sizing was always a grey area. Women are all different shapes and sizes, some are curvier on top and smaller on the bottom or vice versa, so therefore we have decided to move to dual sizing as it gives more breathing space (pardon the pun). We all fluctuate in weight from time to time, so it was important to ensure our dresses fit you even if you go up or down a size.

The Perfect Dress Company dresses come in the following sizes: 6-8, 8-10, 10-12, 12-14, 14-16, 16-18, 18-20, 20-22.

What size are your models?

We show our dresses on models UK sizes 8 – 22, all pictures will clearly state what size the model is.

Can I return dresses if they don’t fit?

Yes, of course, dresses can be returned within 60 days, if you don’t love it, we’ll take it back. Please head over to our shipping and returns page for more details.

What fabric do you use?

Our fabric is totally unique, we have spent time having a blend formulated that works perfectly for our dresses. We wanted our fabric to be comfortable whilst still being luxurious and sensuous. We have achieved this by creating a four-way stretch fabric that drapes and shapes to your body.

How do your dresses flatter the figure?

We have spent a lot of time researching not only invaluable inside styling knowledge but also creating the right fabric that shapes and drapes correctly along with very clever design features. We have spent a lot of time getting each design perfect. We have also used real women not mannequins during the design process, this helps so that our dresses suit many shapes and sizes not just one.

Some of our figure-flattering features include:

  • Ruched panel to create the illusion of a teeny tiny waist
  • Subtle pleats that slim the tummy area
  • Tulip shape that flatters every figure and gives a feminine shape at the hips whilst defining the waist
  • Longer sleeves give the illusion of slender toned arms
  • Cleverly designed slimming tummy tuck panels that act as a double layer to help hide any lumps or bumps.

Do you do a petite, tall or maternity range?

We are planning on launching a petite, tall and maternity range in the near future.
