Special Instructions

When taking measurements the tape should be held flat against the body; it should be held snug enough so not to droop, but never so tight as to feel restrictive. It is best to be measured wearing the same undergarments, slip, strapless bra, body shaper you'll be wearing the day of the wedding or event. If you don't have them yet, wear the closest approximation. Please measure to the closest half inch.

We strongly recommend having your measurements taken by a professional seamstress. If you cannot get professional measurement, we strongly advise that you have someone else take the measurements for you.

  • Thank you for delivering my order just in time for when I needed it. I recently bought a very pretty Lehenga and Plazzo Suit from your online store and I must say I'm in love with both of them. I love the quality and material, I did not expect an online order to be this good. I was in shock when I opened and tried it on, just in awww... with my order. Love it... I only contacted you via fb message once and service was wonderful. I am truly upbeat that the colors were the same as on their website and even better. I'm exceptionally impressed with your prompt service, did not know about your store till now, just happen to saw it on facebook and give it try. Big shout out to team Poshak. Cheers!
