How to Choose Your Size
When selecting your size in our dresses and blouses (and any other bias cut garment) the bust measurement is always the most important number.
While the waist and hip measurements are helpful, they aren't as important as the bust when it comes to finding the perfect fit. The fluid nature of the fabric cut on the bias means that gravity will naturally allow the fabric to drape beautifully over the waist and hips.
Our dresses and blouses fit true to size - we recommend choosing your usual size. However, here are a few tips if your measurements spread across two sizes:
If your bust measurement falls into a smaller size range, but your hips fall into a larger one: we suggest taking the one that your bust falls into (the smaller of the two) for a true fit, or take the one your hips fall into for a more relaxed fit.
If your hip measurement falls into a smaller size range, but your bust falls into a larger one: we suggest taking the one your bust falls into (the larger of the two) for a perfectly easy fit. The bias cut will drape over the waist and hips, accentuating your figure with an effortless feeling.
In summary, if your measurements spread across two different sizes, we suggest taking the size that your bust measurements falls into, regardless of where your waist and hips fall.
How to measure your body:
- Use a soft measuring tape, which is the most accurate tool for taking body measurements. If you don't have a soft measuring tape, you can use a piece of string or ribbon and then measure it against a ruler or stiff measuring tape.
- To get the most accurate measurements, wear form-fitting clothing or no clothing at all. This will help ensure there is no distortion from loose clothing. If you have a specific bra or shapewear garment you plan to wear underneath, wear this now.
- Stand up straight with your arms at your sides and your feet together. Keep your posture relaxed and natural.
- Use the measuring tape to take the following measurements:
