When My Size Isn't.

It Can Vary...

By Manufacturer

By Style

By Country

Now that you know your measurements, what is your true size?
As you can see, it can vary all over the place.
Each manufacturer computes their sizes differently, and some change their sizes from style to style.
So if you consult one size chart, it probably won’t work for another.
Here at Time for Prom we go out of out way to show the proper chart with every dress, so you never have to worry if you have selected the right size.

Same Size Different Numbers

On a globe, the latitude lines come to zero at the North Pole, so when you lay the globe flat, Greenland has to get huge just to get to those lines. At the equator, Greenland becomes much smallerl, because the lines are spread out. Greenland didn't change size, but the numbers did. So it is with fashion: you don't change size, but the numbers say you do!

The Important Lesson

Go by what fits, not by what the numbers say. So many people try to squeeze into clothing based on a number they've heard. It is ALWAYS true that you will look better with a dress that fits, instead of one that is a size too small.

We use the U.S. number system, but...
