Communion Dress Sizing

General help

When it comes to choosing the perfect dress (or suit), it is important to make sure it fits and fits well. Most designers of First Communion dresses understand this and in addition to the sizing charts below, they will usually provide a seam allowance that means you can take in or let out a particular dress as required. Help and advice on how to measure your little one and use the charts below can be found in our Measuring Guide.

Whilst the majority of designers do provide sizing charts, there are some who not currently produce their own sizing guidelines and as sizing can also vary according to style, we also measure our products and add a unique sizing chart to each item. This is an on-going process, as we have a large range many of which are made to order and we make a point to always measure garments ourselves, rather than copy dimensions from other sites, so if you need advice on a specific item, please contact us. Please be aware that all measurements provided below are a guideline and can vary subtly between styles. Where measurements shown on a product description page differ from the below, the product description measurements should be used.

All Measurements are provided in cm, should you require these in inches, please ask.
