Where are your dresses made?
Every Dreamers & Lovers dress is proudly designed, cut, and sewn in our California design studio.

Do I need a bra for my dress?
Our backless dresses have bra cups sewn in, so a bra is not required. Woohoo!

What if I lose/gain weight?
Not to worry. Please provide us with your updated measurements a month before your dress ships. We will make any changes to your dress before sending your made-to-measure dress out to you.

Do you offer customizations/tweaks?
We offer minor tweaks to our dresses, such as sleeves and train length changes. Unfortunately, we only provide complete custom designs, as we have a demanding workload with our designs.

Is the dress see-through?
No, our dresses are all lined. We use the nude color on some samples; that is the color. The dress is not sheer.

What is made-to-measure?
Dreamers & Lovers is obsessed with FIT. When you order a made-to-measure dress, we use about 15 of your unique measurements to craft the dress to fit your body. Your dress is custom-made for you, made to fit you from scratch. The dress is created specifically for you from beginning to end.

What is the standard size?
A standard-sized dress is made to our standard sizing on our chart. If your measurements align with a size 8, you would order a size 8.

Is the price of made-to-measure and standard-size the same?
Yes, it is. The difference is in turnaround time. Standard-size dresses have a shorter ETA.

    The stunning Catherine simple lace wedding Dress strikes the perfect balance with its carefully crafted silhouette, and its simple styling. It is the perfect lace wedding dress with pockets.  One of our original styles; she continues to capture the attention of brides worldwide. She easily flatters all body-types, and with this style, there is no need for further costly alterations, because using your measurements our team will create it to fit your body exactly.

    Catherine has sewn-in bra cups, she’s comfortable, has pockets…yes, pockets! Comes in a variety of lace color choices, and lining color choices. She has a full skirt, so you can eat as much as you like before and during the wedding, and no one will even know. She is truly laidback and doesn’t come with a train, but if you love a train, one can be added for you.

    The exclusive cotton lace is breathtaking, and is a very high quality, evident by the texture that is almost palpable. It looks like an heirloom piece, and could easily be handed down years from now. The liner is soft to the touch and it stretches, so you will be comfortable and beautiful.

    Her cap sleeves are timeless, offering just enough coverage on the arms. For brides looking for even more coverage, a custom three-quarter or full-length sleeves can be added, as seen on some of our real brides, here and here.

    The sweetheart neckline on the liner adds that touch of femininity and sexiness, intentionally balancing the higher neckline of the lace bodice. The molded sewn-in cups, means that you can forget about needing to find a bra, low back and scalloped detailing add youthful, seductive appeal.

    The meticulously tiny pleats on the waist, the lightly voluminous skirt and sweeping train is just right to make you feel like twirling.

    Hidden pockets just below the elegantly gathered waist are the ultimate cool and casual feature for the laid-back boho bride.

    This simple wedding dress is incredibly versatile, wear it with a bohemian crown of flowers or a sheer, sweeping veil.
