First Communion Dress Size Chart Guide
Video: How To Measure For A First Communion Dress - An Easy Guide
Our single most important piece of advice for anyone shopping for a First Communion Dress is to take the child’s measurements. With three simple measurements for Bust, Waist, and Length you’ll be able to select the correct size without worry. Always compare the child’s measurements to the dress size chart as it is common for each dress to have unique measurements.
Please don’t assume that because your child wears a size 8 in clothing that she will automatically be a size 8 in her communion dress. ALWAYS reference the size chart as some dresses run small and others are cut with generous proportions. The size chart measurements provided are for the finished garment. If the measurements are on the cusp of the size consider the next size up. If you have any questions regarding sizing call the store, we are happy to help. Toll Free phone number1-800-625-4610 / International customers phone +1 (919) 249-7120.
When measuring, please use a sewing or soft tape measure, not a metal retractable tape measure.
To measure the BUST take a tape measure and wrap it around the entire body where the child’s chest is, just under the armpits at the widest section of the chest. Hold the tape measure loosely and write down the measurement.
To measure the WAIST take the tape measure and wrap it around the entire body where the child’s mid-section is, just above the belly button. Hold the tape measure loosely and write down the measurement.
The length of a dress is measured from the shoulder to the end of the hemline. To measure where the hemline will fall on your child take the tape measure and start at the top of the shoulder. Run the tape measure down to end of the given size chart measurement. This will provide you with a guide for where the hem of the dress will fall on your child.
First Communion Dresses come in a variety of lengths including knee length, tea length (between the knee and ankle) and floor length. Your child’s height will determine where the hemline actually falls so knowing the length of the dress is important.
Keep in mind that it may be necessary to hem the Communion Dress if you think it is too long. NOTE: if the hem of the dress has beading or embroidery, shortening the dress may not be possible.

This is the most beautiful First Communion dress I have ever seen!!! It is pricey for a little girls dress, but with all the fine detail, fabric and lace, it is worth every penny.

Amazing! We just received this dress and my daughter is very happy. This is an extremely beautiful dress. We saw many dresses but this far exceeds our expectations. I was pleased that the sleeves were long and went to the wrist.

The dress is amazing!!!! We did have to send back the size 6 and get a size 7 but they had them switched out in just a few days. If questioning the size of the dress I would go up to the bigger size. Wonderful working with this company :-)

Amazing quality. Runs very small. The dress is done with detachable train that velcros under the back lace. When I took dress for alterations I was told that it was beautifully constructed. We had to return dress for another style that was more forgiving for my grand daughter.
