Size Guide

How to measure

We design our pieces to flatter all women with individuality in mind. Part of what makes us special is that each body shape is unique. So please consider this guide alongside your own shape when choosing your size.

HOW   TO   MEASURE   YOURSELF   CORRECTLY
When measuring yourself it is important to stand up straight, comfortably, and to not 'suck in'. Remember to keep your tape-measure level with the floor.
SHOULDER   BREADTH 
You need to find the ball of your shoulder, which is just before the curve of your shoulder. Using your tape-measure, place the start of your tape-measure at the ball of one of your shoulders and pull it across your upper back (below your neck) and place it in the same place on your other shoulder. Make sure this is taught and level with the floor.
BUST   CIRCUMFERENCE 
This point of measure is approximately 27.5 cm from your high shoulder point, or simply the fullest part of your chest. To measure your bust circumference, pull the tape-measure around your body, holding flat against your back, and pull taught around yourself until it meets in the front at your true bust point.
UNDER BUST CIRCUMFERENCE 
This point of measure is where the bottom edge of your bra band sits, under your breast. To measure your under-bust circumference, pull the tape-measure around your body, holding flat against your back, and pull taught around yourself until it meets in the front at your true under-bust point.
WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE
This point of measure is approximately 42 cm from your high shoulder point, or simply the narrowest part of your figure. To measure your waist circumference, pull the tape-measure around your body, holding against your back, and pull taught around yourself until it meets in the front at your true waist point.
HIGH HIP CIRCUMFERENCE 
This point of measure is approximately 52 cm from your high shoulder/side neck point, straight down, or, approximately 10 cm below your waist point. To measure your high-hip circumference, pull the tape-measure around your body, holding against your back, and pull taught around yourself until it meets in the front at your true high-hip point.
LOW HIP CIRCUMFERENCE
This point of measure is approximately 62 cm from your high shoulder/side neck point, straight down, or, approximately 20 cm below your waist point. To measure your high-hip circumference, pull the tape-measure around your body, holding against your back, and pull taught around yourself until it meets in the front at your true low-hip point.
THIGH CIRCUMFERENCE 
This point of measure is approximately 2.5 cm below your inner-crotch point. To measure your thigh circumference, pull the measuring tape around your thigh, holding flat against your leg, then pull taught against your thigh until it meets in the centre of your top leg at your true thigh point.
BICEP CIRCUMFERENCE 
This point of measure is approximately 2.5 cm below your inner arm-pit point. To measure your bicep circumference, pull the measuring tape around your upper arm, holding it flat against your arm, then pull taught against your bicep until it meets in the centre of your true bicep point.
OVERSIZED GARMENTS 
It is assumed that it is ok to go down a size in oversized garments. Please keep in mind that the neckline and armhole of all our oversized garments are still true to size. It is of course at your own discretion, but we recommend purchasing your true size to achieve the desired look of the design.
