Frequently asked questions

What are 'samples'?

When ordering a try on 'sample', you will receive a production quality item. These are not actual samples & should be reference for quality & sizing. 

When 'try on at home' orders are received, the CB team checks with inventory to send a production gown to the customer based on the style & size selected.  This is a service we offer to our customers to alleviate stress when shopping for an event gown. 

*If the dress you are interested in is sold out in your size in all color options, there would subsequently not be inventory to send you a 'try on at home' sample. 

Can I purchase a dress that is sent?

Yes. If you receive your gown & the fit is perfect, you are able to purchase the gown without returning the shipment. All dresses that are shipped through the 'try on at home' service are production quality items & are available for purchase. Please contact a CB stylist at to be invoiced for the gown purchase. 

How are the samples shipped?

We use reusable environmentally friendly shipping mailers. They are made in a recycled polyester material that is waterproof & durable for shipping back & forth. If the reusable mailer is sent out. & you decide to purchase & keep the sample we ask that you still ship the reusable mailer back with the prepaid return label. 

The fee for loosing the reusable mailer is $20/order.

My wedding is in less than 3 months?

If your event/wedding is within 3 months we recommend ordering the style & not getting sample. Our inventory fluctuates so quickly, we don't want your size/color to sell out before your event.

What size should I order?

We recommend ordering the gown in the size closest to your typical dress size (not bridal sizing). If that does not fit just the way you'd like, we recommend taking your bust, waist, and hip measurements and comparing them to our size chart to determine the size that you should order when placing your final dress order. 

Please see our guide to sizing HERE

How much is it to order a gown to try on?

Each gown is $18 & each color swatch sample is $1. This does not include the $9 shipping fee.

A complimentary return shipping label & envelope will be included with the shipment for your convenience. 

The cost of the gowns to try on at home do not go towards the cost of your final order & is not refunded upon the return of the gowns. Promotion codes & discount codes are not accepted on sample orders.

What styles can I try on?

The gowns listed on the 'try on at home' page are the only styles/colors/sizes we have available in our try on at home stock. The selected color & size are also not guaranteed but we will do our best to process your request.  You can contact a CB stylist if there is a particular gown you are interested in but do not see listed at

How long can I keep the 'try on at home' dresses?

 Once you receive the dresses in the mail you have 3 business days to try on & share with your friends to help you pick out the best CB style for you. We encourage taking photos to share with a CB stylist or your friends to get the best advice before making your final purchase. 

Why aren’t all styles available for trying on?

Due to limited inventory not all styles are available for trying on. If something that you like is not available to try on, we recommend ordering the dress out right & returning within 30 days if it does not work out.
