Size Guide & Product Care
Purchasing clothing online can be daunting, especially if it's your first time! We have included a general size chart for our clothing, and measurements are provided on the product page of each item. Please check your measurements and the size guide provided before ordering!
Each person’s body differs; we may have larger hips, wider shoulders or be top heavy. Every store has different range of sizes. Our sizes typically run small as we cater to petite women. Size is a very delicate part of ordering online so you should know and understand clearly the size chart. We understand that sizing may defer for each country and store, thus we provide measurement charts instead of size charts as numbers are constant so you have a clear bearing on the sizing you should select.
We try to provide the most accurate measurements for all our garments, but as manual measurement is done, please take into consideration a 1-2.5cm margin for error on measurements. We provide all measurements in centimeters (cm), which can be converted into inches. (2.54cm = 1”)
TAKING DOWN YOUR MEASUREMENTS
Before purchasing, prepare your tape measure, pen and paper. You are going to measure yourself. You must refer on the chart on which part of your body requires measurement. If it says bust, waist and hips, then you should measure all of it.
When measuring the bust, raise your arm and place the tape measure under your arm, measure the fullest area of your bust. When it comes to your waist, measure around it, give it an inch or two for those budges after meals. Like how you measured your bust, measure just below your waist to get your perfect fit of your hips. Also, make sure the tape measure is held snugly and firmly (not tightly) against your body and is always parallel to the floor for circumference measurements.
Remember to wear proper undergarments and shoes when measuring.
For Dresses, Blouses, Tops, Vests, Jackets, and Coats, select size to correspond with your Bust/Chest measurement.
Adjust the Waist and/or Hip, if necessary. If there is more than 2"(5.08cm) difference between your Bust and Chest measurement, select size by your chest measurement, because you will achieve a better fit through your shoulders, chest and upper back; adjust the Bust if necessary.
For Skirts, Pants, Shorts, and Culottes, select size to correspond with your Waist measurement. Adjust the Hip, if necessary. If your Hips are much larger than your Waist, select the size closest to your Hip measurement and adjust the Waist.
When purchasing clothing item that is a Blouse, Jacket, Skirt and/or Pants, select size by your Bust/Chest measurement and adjust the Waist and/or Hips if necessary.
If your measurements fall between two sizes, consider your bone structure. If you are thin and small-boned, choose the smaller of the two sizes. If you are larger boned, choose the larger size. Personal preference may also influence your size selection depending on whether you prefer a looser or a closer fit.
REVIEW AND SAVE YOUR MEASUREMENTS
Make sure that the measurements taken down are accurate. Review it thoroughly. Remember the tips concerning errors and standard sizing. We recommend that you save your measurement on your phone so you have a copy to refer when shopping online. This measurement chart will also help you during a trip overseas when you are in a rush to shop, just whip out your phone and a measuring tape and you are good to go!
Note: US sizing can be subjective, we'll do our best to be as accurate as possible!
- It is important to note that strapless/ tube tops and dresses must be worn snug to hold up.
