DRESS CUSTOMIZATION

At Studio Minc we pride ourselves in the exquisite cuts and shapes of our dresses,
especially our signature fitted gowns. We believe that the perfect dress isn't really
perfect unless the fit is just right and sometimes a slight adjustment is necessary,
but don't worry because we have you covered.

The most required alterations at Studio Minc are a simple hem alteration, the addition of
sewn in bra cups, or tightening of the straps. These types of alterations can be done at
any seamstress or alterations service in your area. But even better, we can have them
done by our manufacturing team before the dress arrives at your door!

 

HEM ALTERATION

Adjusting the hem is a very common alteration that may be required when purchasing a
floor length gown. The hem of our formal gowns should preferably skim the floor, or sit a
few centimetres on the ground. Our hem alteration costs $40.00.
We can adjust the length of your gown simply with one
measurement and your gown will be ready to wear when it arrives at your home.
 

THE MEASUREMENTS WE REQUIRE

We require two simple measurement to adjust the length of your dress. This is the waist
to floor measurement when wearing your heels of choice. This measurement should be
taken at the side of the body. The second measurement is the Total Bodice measurement.
This measurement tells us the length of your upper body. The combination of these
measurements allows us to get a picture of your height and body type,
and determine how the dress fits.
View our video below for more information about taking accurate measurements,
specifically the waist - floor measurement and total measurement.  
 

BUST CUPS

Another popular service we offer is the addition of bra cups. Bra cups are a great no
fuss bra solution. We offer padded and non - padded cups and sew in the size which
best matches the size of the dress ordered. Padded bra cups are the optimum choice if
added volume and extra cleavage is the desired look. Non - padded bra cups are a good
choice for those with a larger bust that want a little extra support. Bra cups are ideal in
backless dresses where a strapless bra cannot be worn. We can add either padded or
non- padded cups to your purchase for $35.00.
