VINTAGE SIZING VS. MODERN SIZING

What's the Difference?

Written by Jordan Benton

If you are newly engaged and your bridal gown appointment is just days away, then we’ve got some important information for you. We spoke with the manager at Bridal Connection at Stone Oak, Angelita Sorensen, about a rather touchy topic when it comes to gown shopping—sizing. Did you know there are two different types of bridal gown sizes? One is called vintage and the other is called modern.

When you hear vintage think designer brands and when you hear modern think all others. There is a one-to-two size variation between the two types. For example, a vintage size 20 is equal to a modern size 16. So, when you go shopping for your dream dress at Bridal Connection, don’t be alarmed when Angelita measures you for your size and it comes out to be a higher number than you were anticipating.

“The struggle is getting the bride to understand to not worry about the number,” said Sorensen. “Don’t worry about the dress size. You will look fabulous, and no one is going to be coming up behind you at your wedding to see what size your dress is.”

Bridal Connection is proud to carry vintage sizes, which means their inventory comprises designer brands. All of which, can be custom-ordered to fit your body the exact way that you envision for your wedding day.
