what you need to know

choosing the right dress

We are here to help and guide you through buying your Shikoba Bride bohemian wedding dress.  It can be a daunting process so if you have any queries or would like to send us a picture of yourself and let us know the dress you want to purchase we can offer our expertise to ensure you make the right decision.

The most common concerns are from pregnant brides and brides with a large bust so again, please do just get in touch and we can guide you in the right direction for the dress designs to best suit your needs.

sizing and alterations


Leave the worry of sizing to our studio experts. All we need from you is your measurements. Bridal sizing is a little different to the high street and can be quite confusing so once you have provided your measurements we will cross-reference with our size charts and recommend the best size for you.

We have provided a video below to help you take your measurements correctly as this is super important. Once you have placed your order you will be sent a form to complete with your measurements, we will then contact you to agree which size we will make for you. If you feel your shape/size proportions are outside the standard then please email us with your questions.

Our dresses length comes as standard (47 inches waist to floor), this can easily be shorted by your seamstress. If you think you may require extra length (normally brides 5’8 and above with heels) please do email us prior to ordering.

What do you need to know when I order?
When you place your order at the checkout, you will be sent a form and we will need to know your dress choice, measurements, wedding date and location to double check we can meet your timescales. Rush orders are available on request.
Will I need alterations?
Yes, our dresses are made to order from a size chart closest to your measurements so more than likely you will wish to tweak your dress with your local seamstress. Everybody is unique and we want you to love every inch of your dress. We will help you chose the correct size once you have provided your measurements, however, like with any dress purchase from a bridal boutique it will need tailoring to your body shape. When you receive your dress we provide you with some helpful tips to find the right seamstress.
