Papilio gowns come in standard European sizes from 32 – 50, and our bridesmaids dresses come in American size 6 – 20W.

On every product page you will find the relevant size chart from which to choose your correct size. It is important to get your measurements taken accurately and choose your size according to your largest measurement.

Compare your bust, waist, and hip measurements to the designer’s size chart. It’s very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements.

For example, if your measurements are as follows:

  • Your bust fits a size 44
  • Your waist fits a size 42
  • Your hips fits a size 40

We would advise that you order a size 44 and get the dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering the size that fits your largest measurement will ensure that your dress has the most flattering fit possible. 

Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so it’s not uncommon to find yourself requiring wedding apparel one or more sizes larger than your normal dress size.

Please not we do not offer returns or refunds if you order the wrong size. As each dress is made to order we are unable to offer this service.

If you need help taking your measurements, please contact one our of seamstresses in your region who will be happy to help.
