Frequently Asked Questions

Modern Trousseau never sells online, so why did we launch a sample sale?

Great brands pivot during a crisis. We launched out sample sale to allow brides with any budget to find her dream gown. The Modern Trousseau sample sale are store samples that are ready to be walked down the aisle.


Gowns will be shipped as soon as we can get her packed and should arrive to you within a week of ordering, depending on your location and FedEx.


Yes, we know bridal sizing is weird.

The Modern Trousseau Bridal 10 is the following size: Bust: 36
 // Waist: 28 // 
Low Hip 38

Modern Trousseau Bridal 12 is: Bust: 38
 // Waist: 29 // 
Low Hip 40

Is This a Forever Thing?

Short answer, we don't know. During the COVID-19 crisis our online Sample Sale store will be in full effect. After that, we cannot say at this time.

Gown Condition

These gowns are store samples, meaning they are not brand new. Please remember that all gowns will need basic alterations such as a hem, bustle, basic tweaks based on a brides unique body, and some need a bit more love. Depending on your location, we may be able to provide seamstress recommendations.


Online sample purchases can be returned within five days of arrival for Modern Trousseau credit, minus return shipping. Want to return the sample gown you purchased? Email us and we will provide the label. Gowns must be returned in the same condition they were delivered.
