★Is there a color difference between the different dress fabrics?
Color may vary between different fabrics and screens, even with the same color name, there are several options and different color shown, so please order fabric swatches to make sure it's the right color you want, otherwise we are really can't make sure it's right color you want.
★How can I make sure that the bridesmaid dresses I ordered are the same color?
Please order fabric swatches to make sure it's the right color you like. Secondly, please try to order all dresses within one month, then it can avoid dye lot shading.
★When should I order the dress?
Please order all dresses around 2-3 months before your event, then you will have enough time to get some adjustments to the dress if it is necessary.
★How can I choose a suitable size ?
1, Please compare your measurements of bust, waist, hip(biggest part of hip including butt) and hollow to floor with shoes on with our standard sizes, please note only error is less than 1'' for all measurements, then dress can fit well otherwise it's better choose custom size, that's way we can make sure dress will fit you like gloves.
★Should I choose standard size or custom size?
All of our dresses are available in size 0-30. Please note that only error less than 1'' between all your measurements of bust, waist, hip, hollow to floor with shoes on and standard size, then dress can fit well, otherwise it's better choose custom size.
The measurement of hip is the widest part of hip, if your butt is bigger than hip, then please give us your measurements of butt too. There are no extra cost to do custom size here, just fill up your measurements on the product page. And we will confirm with you again.so if error is bigger than 1'', please choose custom size, if error is less than 1'', then choose standard size, so dress will fit well.
Please note: for plus size dress(size over US14), the ruching and draping may not appear exactly as picture shown because pleating is longer, the weight will be heavier than normal, so the pleating might be a little out of shape, the difference will become obviously if measurements provided not right, so please try to provide us accurate measurements.
★I chose 1-2 size up, why my dress still can't fit well
Almost all our designs are mermaid styles, so they are different from A-line styles. Please note that only error less than 1'' between all your measurements of bust, waist, hip, hollow to floor with shoes on and standard size, then dress can fit well, it's not just choose 1-2 size up, then dress can fit well. For example, if bust is 1'' bigger, but waist is 4'' bigger or even more, so dress still can't fit well if you just choose 1-2 size up, so if error is bigger than 1'', please choose custom size, if error is less than 1'', then choose standard size, so dress will fit well.
★How can I do if the custom dress is unsuitable for me?
We are sorry that our custom dress is the final sale since the dress is made exclusively for your measurements. Please make sure your measurements are accurate before placing orders.
It's normal for the slight difference because all of our dresses are handmade. Please kindly understand there may be a slight difference due to manual measurements. Even though we will make your order according to your measurements, it is only basic custom sizing. So you may need additional alterations or adjustments at your expense to get your ideal and fit dress, we offer a limited alterations reimbursement for all dresses (including standard size dresses and custom size dresses), you just submit a picture of your receipt from the tailor via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do the rest! Way too easy? Yes, It’s so easy for you to get the reimbursements! Please see reimbursement limits for our custom size dresses below in USD:
Dress $99 or less - Reimbursement limit $20
Dress $100 - $199 - Reimbursement limit $30
Dress above $200 - Reimbursement limit $40
For most bridal shops, they offer free service to measure for you, even a paid service, the cost is also not high, for custom size, we need measurements of bust, waist, hip, butt(if it is bigger than hip), hollow to floor with shoes on.
★Why dress with size over US14 not refundable?
According to our 13 years experience of making dresses in this industry, the return rate is very high for plus size dresses. Since most dresses from our shop are mermaid style, so for plus size girls, some one have big waist, the others may have big hip or butt, so in most time, plus size mermaid dresses can't fit well, then you have to return and reorder a custom size dress again, this way will waste your extra time and money, we usually suggest plus size girls order custom size dresses instead of plus size dress, please try not choose plus size unless the error less than 1'' between all your measurements and standard size.
Please note: for plus size dress, the ruching and draping may not appear exactly as picture shown because pleating is longer, the weight will be heavier than normal, so the pleating might be a little out of shape, the difference will become obviously if measurements provided not right, so please try to provide us accurate measurements.
★Why ruching and draping will not flattered?
If your measurements are not the same size as dress, so ruching and draping will not flattered, that's nothing wrong about dress, the key is whether you are in the same size as dress, all dresses are our own designs and real photos, we still have sample dress in our showing room, it's the same workers make the same dresses again and again everyday, we also took photos about your dresses before sending, we can send you photos of your dress before sending.
★Why I can see stitch under pleats?
The ruching and draping are all fixed by stitch, that's the only way to fix the pleating.
Since the material is soft satin, it's stretchy, if your real measurements are bigger than dress, then dress will be tight for you, the pleats will be stretched to plain, the pleats will not be obviously, further more, if you take dress off, then stitches will be stretched out, they become obviously if you bring up the pleats, in this condition, you can sort out the pleats by stretching them into both side, then stitches will indent into pleats. If your real measurements are smaller than dress, then pleats will out of shape, they will become loose, so please find a seamstress in your local shop to take dress in.For more, please check our blog: https://cetims.com/blogs/news/why-i-can-see-stitches-under-pleatsWe also have ADJUSTMENTS & REIMBERSEMENTS policy, please check this link: https://cetims.com/pages/adjustments-reimbersements
★Why I fit well in X size from X brand, but your dress can't fit me well in the same size?
Different brands will use different size chart, beside every manufacturer has their own color name but they are in the same color family too, that means different brands will have different size and color chart.
For Cetims, our size chart is the same as most leading brands, it's common to use, but sometimes, if you bought an A-line dress from other brands, then bought the same size mermaid style from us, the dress might can't fit you well, that's because for an A-line dress, the measurements of hip is not important, but for a mermaid style, the measurement of hip and butt is very important, they need accurate measurements.
