Terms and Conditions

1) Website Usage & Products:

All of the Dresses, Suits, Accessories, etc. we sell at FormalDressShops.com are brand new; we don’t carry used, damaged, or sampled products, of any kind, what-so-ever on our website. All items are examined before being shipped out in order to ensure you receive a complete product of high quality that is free of flaws and/or defects.

a. Please note that due to different computer screens, dimensions & resolutions, some colors might slightly look different than they actually are.
b. Not all dresses / suits come readily as a “perfect fit”, even if you buy it in a store, most need alterations for that “perfect fit.” Please see Section 2.

We strive to provide you with excellent client service, so please contact us if anything arises, we are here for you! Our operational hours are 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. PST Monday through Friday.

2) Measuring Instructions for Dresses:

Please make sure that you have measured yourself & are picking the right size before purchasing your dress, costume, suit, etc. Please follow the size chart listed on the product page before ordering your size & measure yourself in inches. If you are in between sizes or unsure of the fit, choose a size up, as it is easier for your seamstress to take in, rather than out.

Refer to this section for some tips on how to measure yourself: Find Your Dress Size

a. Bust: Not the same as a bra size. Measure around the fullest part of your bust and back, pull snugly. Don’t forget to compensate for bras/undergarments you may intend on wearing under the dress. 
b. Waist: Measure around the smallest part of your waistline, usually 2” above your belly button. 
c. Hips: Measure around the fullest part of your hips, usually 8” below your belly button.
