Our size chart is the size of the garment itself and not that of the customer. The garment measurements are the maximum measurements that may vary slightly due to the handmade nature of our clothing and differences in the measuring process. Please bear in mind that the garments do not stretch. We strongly recommend that you measure yourself before ordering from us and compare your measurement to the size chart. Check the measurement guide below to see how best to measure.

 

Measurement Guide
  • Bust measurement - measure around the fullest part of your chest by wearing a bra. Don't use backless or stick on bra to do this.

  • Your waist is normally narrower than your chest. This should be right around your belly button.

  • To take your hips measurements accurately, measure the fullest part of your hips. You should do this wearing only undergarments.

My dream dress

This dress captivated me when I stumbled over it this summer. What's not to like: the bold print, the sunny palette, the beautiful lines! It also seems perfectly suited to my pear-shape body. In case it helps anyone: I went against every instinct and trusted my eyes instead of the measurements posted with this dress. I am 5'6" tall and measure 38" in the bust, 32" in the waist, 43" in the hip, with 48" my fullest measure around my rear end. Based on my measurements, I was better assured of a fit around my waist and hips with a size Large, but the bust measurement of a large is shown as 42", and I was certain that would be wildly enormous on me. Even though the measurements of the Medium are shown as 31" waist and 42" hip, both an inch smaller than my actual measurements I studied the photos and the way the hips are so much fuller than the bust, then took a leap and purchased a Medium. I spent the week waiting for it fretting over what a ****** idea that was, certain I would need to return and exchange it for a Large, worrying over how that would work between the US and the UK. But then the Medium dress arrived and it. was. perfect. It fit me like it was made for me, flowing smoothly around my hips and legs. It may be a fluke and I got the one Medium sized for me (in which case, I should buy a lottery ticket!!) but again--if it helps anyone--these are the measurements I took from the dress lying flat: 21" across the bust (bottom of armhole to bottom of armhole), 16" across the waist, 30"/free hip (measuring with the skirt spread and flattened as much as possible, from bottom of pocket to bottom of pocket). In summary: This dress is freaking perfection. Thank you for making me feel like a model.

Beautiful print

Its gorgeous, but very large for a small, both long and wide. I am usually a UK 8-10 If I could I would exchange for a XS, but will keep this and have it altered.

The dress is beautiful and really well made. Only reason i didnt give a 5 is the armhole is very tight ( and i dont have big arms). I can sew, so i have altered it. Super pleased with yhe dress overall x
