WHAT IS ALTRESS?
Altress is changing the way women shop and fixing the way clothing is designed and produced. Through our customization offerings, we give you control over the design process, so each piece is designed by you and made just for you. Offering thousands of customizable styles and silhouettes, in nine on-trend colors, Altress allows you to design clothing that fits your body type and aesthetic, so you can look and feel your best.


HOW DOES IT WORK?
Simply shop from our Suggested Styles page for our most popular dresses or choose the Design Your Dress experience.

To design your own dress, select Design Your Dress and get started browsing by Occasion, Styles, or by using the Dress Builder. You do you. Check the boxes that appeal to your desired style and fit. Use the arrows to sort through options for both tops and bottoms. Once you’ve decided upon your dress style, select colors for the top and the bottom of your dress, and choose your size using our handy-dandy Size Guide. Once the dress is finalized a la your design, add it to your cart and checkout whenever you are ready. Once we process your order, we will start making your customized dress, just for you, and ship it to you in just 10-12 business days.

HOW LONG DOES DELIVERY TAKE?
Your dress ships out in 10-12 business days, and depending on your location arrives within 2-5 business days thereafter. We begin production of your dress the day your order is processed. You will receive an e-mail with tracking information as soon as your order ships. If you would like to expedite your shipping to guarantee 1 or 2 business day delivery, please reach out to CustomerCare@altress.com and we'll be happy to help!

WHAT IF I NEED MY DRESS FASTER?
We offer Rush Service for an additional $150 that guarantees 7-business day delivery, includes shipping and handling, and pushes your order to top of our production list! Simply select "Rush Service" at check-out. If you have any questions about our Rush Service, please reach out to CustomerCare@altress.com and we'll be happy to answer them.

Our skilled manufacturing partners are all based in the US and dedicated to producing the highest-quality garments, and creating dresses made just for you.

WHAT IS YOUR COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT?

We eliminate overproduction with our made-to-order model. This way, we produce only what our customers want and avoid excess inventory, which often turns into waste.
Exchanges / Returns that we cannot sell may be donated to Dress for Success or other organizations to help women in need. We do not burn our excess clothing!
