What sizes does the dress come in?
The dress only comes in 2 sizes. Size A fits a 0 - 12 and Size B fits a 14 - 24. We always recommend sizing up if you are on the border as you can always wrap the dress tighter!
What if I want more coverage under the dress?
The bandeau top is a tube top that goes under the dress in the same color and fabric. It provides more coverage and looks seamless when worn with the dress.
Can I wear a bra with the dress?
Yes you can! Certain wrapping styles allow for a strapless bra or even a full coverage bra. With the help of the Nu Bra and various nipple cover options, the dress surprisingly offers support in itself. We also have the option of a bandeau top, which comes in the same color/fabric as the dress and provides additional coverage to wear a bra comfortably and wrap it in any style you wish.
Are there undergarments that work better with the dress?
Seamless undergarments work best with the dress. Please avoid lace as it can snag the dress.
Do the dresses require alterations?
The simple sizing structure of our dresses means no sizing alterations are required. Should you need to change the length of your dress it simply requires a straight cut with no hemming. twobirds does not have the facility to carry out alterations but we are happy to provide details of tailors in the Manhattan area. Please order extra length if you are over 5’10 in heels.
Can I wear the dress if I am expecting?
Yes! The twobirds dress is perfect for pregnant ladies as it only comes in 2 sizes and has room for the bump. Please make sure to account for the bump when deciding on length. We only offer extra-length on the ballgown but you can always cut the ballgown down to the desired length (the alteration is so easy!).
How do you clean the dresses?
We recommend dry-cleaning but you can machine wash cold the jersey collection and hang to dry. Steaming is ok on the dresses (especially if there are any slight wrinkles).
Can you dye the dress?
While it may be possible, we do not have any contacts or referrals for dyeing the dresses at this time. We hope to revisit this and be able to offer a solution in the future!
