Size & Fit:
How do I choose the perfect dress?
Use our search filters to help you narrow down your choices by designer, color, size, and style.
According to the size chart, I am a different size than I am used to wearing. Why is that?
Dresses are sized differently than regular clothing so the best size for you might not be the one you’re used to wearing. We recommend that you choose your size based on your measurements and the size chart on our website. At the very end of the description for each item, we do our best to accurately describe the size measurements in terms of chest, waist, and hips.
What if I cannot find my size?
Kalon provides one-of-a-kind items rather than mass-produced fashion, especially when it comes to consignment. We usually receive consigned garments of one size only, but we stock reputable international brands from Europe and the U.S. and follow according to their global measurements. If you are looking for a particular item and cannot find your size, our stylists can reach out and offer to look through inventory that’s not yet listed on the website. Feel free to chat with our stylists through the chat window located on our homepage. For Kalon’s partnerships with independent retailers, we have as many sizes available as listed by the said retailers. Sometimes independent retailers will not have all sizes available that you would find at a department store.
How do I know what size to order?
To determine your size for a particular dress we recommend that you have your chest, waist and hips measurements taken and compare them to the measurements found on the size chart for that dress. Sizing varies, so be sure to consult the chart for the dress you are interested in. We recommend choosing the size that comfortably fits all of your measurements.
How do I determine my measurements?
We recommend having your measurements taken by a professional tailor or seamstress or having someone help you take them. Measurements should be taken in the undergarments you plan to wear under your dress. If measuring yourself, make sure to keep the measuring tape comfortably loose, like you’d want your dress to fit.
- Chest – Standing up straight, with your arms at your side, measure the fullest part of your chest and around your back.
- Waist – Measure the narrowest part of your torso or where your waist creases when you bend to the side.
- Hip – Standing up straight, measure around the fullest part of your hips.
