Need help measuring for your souvenir or rental gown?

Save yourself time and hassle by ordering the correct sizes. You will have correctly fitting garments if you provide ACCURATE measurements. Please don't "pad" them to make sure it is big enough.
The key measurements you need to for determining size are:

1) Total height with the shoes on you would wear in the gown

2) Head measurement- Our caps are One-size-fits-all, with elastic to adjust. If sizing is still needed, measure 1" above the ears or provide a cap size if you know it.

3) Weight, if "plus" sizes are being considered or person is not average in weight. Plus sizes for souvenir are based on a specific combination of height + weight (see chart below). For rentals meeting that criteria, we recommend moving up 1 size.


Now that you have the measurements, choose the correct size from the appropriate size chart below. Please note carefully the various combinations of height and weight that must be exceeded to warrant a plus size. Rental gowns do not have plus sizing, but we suggest you order 1 size larger for anyone well in that category. A sizing assessment fee of $5.00 per person will be added if your order does not conform to our size chart.
