I had BMs all over the country, and I just had everyone measured and ordered the dresses. Honestly, you don’t NEED to get measured at a store. My mom measured my sister by following some instructions online, and the fit of her dress was perfect.

If you’re both okay with her NOT trying on dresses, then do it that way. However, if she wants to be more involved, she’ll probably have to plan a trip. The only compromise I can think of would be to have her go to that one salon in her area, get an idea of what styles work for her (tell the salon owners in the end that she didn’t find anything she liked, of course), and what styles absolutely don’t work for her, and then have her pick out some styles of designers online that are available in your area. You can then go look at swatches to confirm the color is right, and then order her dress based on her measurements.

you don’t need to get measured at a store – just have someone be precise in the mreasuring though.. and make sure she knows a good tailor for alterations.

given how she’s tiny but tall, does she know what styles work best for her body shape? else maybe she can pick a dress from ann taylor.com or something that offers free shipping – that way she can try it and exchange it for another size / style if it doesn’t work? i’m not sure if DB offers this but if it does, great!
