The number one question we receive from our brides is, “How do I know an online dress will fit me?” We understand that fit matters and our goal is to provide a wedding dress that fits better than the standard dress size you would purchase at a boutique or bridal shop. Today, we are formally announcing our commitment to fit with our FitCommit Guarantee.
We hear from brides every day how unexpected alteration costs are, making it difficult to budget. Many are surprised at how much alterations add to their final wedding dress bill. The average flat-price alterations package at the largest single U.S. bridal boutique is $1,395. Other leading stores tell brides to budget over $1,000.
One of the reasons we started Anomalie was to revolutionize fit, and over the past year, we have seen that Anomalie dresses require significantly less alterations than boutique dresses. As with any dress, you should always anticipate some minor alterations. However, many of our dresses require zero alterations! This is largely attributed to our expert team of Stylists, technical designers, seamstresses, and top tech company engineers.
Thanks to our incredible team, our bride’s are able to provide their custom measurements as well as participate in an at home try-on experience. This was developed by our pattern makers and is used to provide additional measurement data. Moreso, we create a custom pattern to each bride’s exact measurements EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. This results in a closer fit and a personalized experience for everybody and every BODY.
The At Home Try-On
Developed by our technical design team and skilled pattern makers, the at home try-on portion of the measurement process allows our brides to try-on sample garments that are used to gather additional measurement data. Our brides are sent two to three sample garments, created using Anomalie sizing, for them to try-on. They then provide photos of themselves in these garments for our team to analyze and use to better construct the pattern of their custom gowns. Our workrooms are able to interpret these photos and use the gathered data, in addition to our brides custom measurements, to provide clarity and accuracy to ensure the closest fit for any body!
The FitCommit Guarantee
With the FitCommit Guarantee, we pledge no bride will pay more than $299 in alterations to address fit issues. If alterations exceed $299, we vow to cover the difference in cost.
To many recently-engaged brides, this $299 alterations maximum might seem high. However, this is much lower than almost any other bridal shop! While we have been able to decrease significant costs from the wedding dress supply chain, we are not able to control the cost tailors charge for their services (yet).
The $299 maximum of the FitCommit Guarantee is significantly lower than the flat rate of the leading bridal retailer and represents the lowest-price alterations guarantee in the wedding dress industry.
Our effort to revolutionize fit will be never-ending. Anomalie’s FitCommit is another step we’re taking to give brides full transparency into their maximum potential costs and demonstrate our dedication to perfecting fit.
