Size Guide

When buying fashion via mail order it's important to choose the right size, so we recommend double checking your measurements and referring to the size charts below. Size and fit can vary from brand-to-brand and depending on the cut, fabric and styling of the garment. The size charts below are as a guide only but should help you to order the correct size. Unfortunately not all brands have a size chart. Please use a tape measure and provide measurements in inches, it is always preferable and more accurate if you can get someone else to take the measurements rather than measure yourself. Please do not over tighten the tape measure as this may result in a fit tighter than expected.

Bust - Take the tape measure and wrap around the widest point of your back and keeping level with your nipple line. If you intend on wearing a bra under the outfit then please ensure you wear one when you are measured. If you have a particularly large ribcage please also provide us with your under bust measurement, again wrap tape measure around ribcage keeping level with under bust.

Bra size - Please advise us of bra size usually worn. 

Waist - The waist measurement should be taken just under the bottom ribs at the naturally smallest point, not necessarily in line with the belly button. Please do not confuse your waist (which is quite high) with your Hip line (which is where a lot of modern fashions sit)

Hip - The hip measurement is a low hip measurement which includes the widest point of your upper thigh and bottom. Wrap the tape measure around this widest point. If you have any questions please call the shop as all of our staff are very familiar with the correct measurement guide.
