It's our goal to deliver to you awesome clothes that fit! We ask that you know your measurements before ordering! Don't have a measuring tape? Read below for our measuring cheats!
Footwear is sized in U.S sizes. (6, 7, 8, 9 etc)
1. If you do not have a measuring tape, yarn or string works just as well; measure with yarn or string and then carefully line it up over a ruler or yard stick.
2. Make your own measuring tape. Print out a ruler here. Make sure it takes up the whole sheet of paper. Each ruler is 12". So you will need to carefully tape several together. Make sure to relabel by hand each additional ruler you add to your homemade measuring tape. The first ruler will go up to 12". relabel the 2nd to go up to 24", the 3rd to go up to 36", the 4th to 48", etc.
If you fall between sizes, buy the larger size.
Purchase the size that will fit all your measurements. If your bust is smaller than the chart size, but your waist is larger, choose the size that will fit your waist.
On most tops and corsets, hip size is not important. In fitted skirts and dresses, hips matter. In flared retro style skirts, they don't.
Remember. It's Way easier to take a garment in (make smaller) by tailoring than it is to take it out. (make bigger) (because you can't)
Top way bigger than bottom, bottom way bigger than top? We suggest you shop for separates! We offer lots of tops and skirts that look rad together, and you can buy each in the best size for you!
Waist measurements. We all wear our pants way below our natural waist. Our charts use your natural waist measurement. Do not measure where you wear your pants. Natural waist generally falls approx 1" above your belly button!
Bust Measurements. Your bust measurement is *****NOT***** your bra band size. Your bra band size is smaller than your bust measurement and using it will give you an inaccurate measurement! Bra band is the circumfrence under your breasts. Your bust measurement is the circumfrence at the fullest point of your breasts, usually directly over the nipple.Wearing or planning on wearing breast forms with your outfit? Include them in your measurements.
- tops, skirts, jackets, dresses that are sized as Small, Medium, Large, etc. This is not the chart for fashion corsets or numerically sized apparel
