At Anomalie, we are laser-focused on fit. Fit is so important for the look and feel of your dress- but your measurements only tell part of the story. That’s why we have incorporated a secondary fit process of the FitKit that you can try on — from home!
During your design appointment, your stylist will guide you to take a few key measurements including your bust, waist, hip and torso length measurements.
Based on these measurements, we will send you 1-2 fitting shells. These patterns were developed from analyzing hundreds of thousands of measurement sets of our previous brides. Please note: the fitting shells are not meant to be a version of your specific dress silhouette.
Please try on the fitting shells and determine the best fitting one. Once you figure out which one fits best, please take a few full-length body photos for us. We need a front view, side view, and back view photo. Please email these photos to email@example.com or upload them directly to your Lookbook. Lastly, please provide us with any fit-related notes that you would like us to keep in mind. Our team will review the photos & notes to see how we can best achieve a well-fitting dress.
If your fitting shell doesn’t fit well, your stylist may recommend a few additional measurements are taken.
We also have the option to go Made-to-Measure for an additional price of $299. We find this path works especially well for brides that have a hard time finding everyday clothes that fit well. Rather than adjusting existing patterns (which are used to make the fitting shells), we will collect your full list of measurements & create a custom muslin of your dress silhouette that is sent to you to try-on. During this muslin try-on, your sketch & design details need to be finalized so that we are only making adjustments to the fit of your dress.
Regardless of Made-to-Measure or standard Anomalie sizes, our assurance on fit is backed up by our FitCommit Guarantee, which vows you will not pay more than $499 for fit-related alterations.
Let’s get into instructions for the Anomalie FitKit!
Before You Start
Before beginning your home try-on with the Anomalie FitKit, please ensure you have the following:
- Proper undergarments – Wear the undergarments similar to what you plan to wear on your wedding day, including any shapewear. If you’re not planning to wear a bra with your dress, measure wearing a bra or tank top that gives you the shape that you like without any extra padding.
- Friend/family member/fiance to help out!
- Camera/phone for photos!
1. Try on your fitting shell(s)
After receiving your FitKit, try on the fitting shell(s) over any undergarments that you plan to wear on your wedding day. If you have multiple shells, select the one that fits you best.
- The pattern is meant to fit either slightly loose or just right, in order to achieve the best results.
- This is a sample pattern & is not meant to be a version of your specific dress design. It will also not be in the same fabric or necessarily have the same construction as your dress.
What if my sample fits perfectly?
Great! If one of the fitting shells fits perfectly please take front, back, & side photos wearing the fitting shell as is. Here is an example of a perfect fitting sample:
*Photos should be full length.
What if I am unable to fully zip any of my fitting shell options?
Not to worry! Please contact your stylist as soon as possible to send additional styles or measurements.
Once the fitting shell is on, please have your friend/family-member/fiancé take a front, back & side photo of you, as well as up-close photos related to loose areas. You should have a total of 3-8 photos to submit.
Once complete, please email the photos and any relevant fit notes to your stylist at firstname.lastname@example.org or upload them to your Lookbook.
Example: The waist seam hit right where my natural waist is. It was slightly loose in the bust, fitted through the hips and the armholes felt just right!
