Providing your measurements
When you choose your item, you’ll have the option to enter your body measurements.
We recommend that you do not round your measurements up or down to adjust your fit based on the silhouette of the item as it’s displayed on the site. Trust us – our team understands the cut and pattern of our styles inside and out, so you’ll always get the best results if you provide your exact measurements as they are. We also welcome an email from you with any special sizing or styling instructions for your order.
Before you start:
Be sure to measure over the undergarments you plan to wear when you wear the item Keep your tape measure level and close, and don’t pull it too tight. If possible, have a friend or family member measure you – it’s more accurate!
How to Measure
Measure across your upper back from the tip of one shoulder to the tip of the other. Stand tall with your chin parallel to the floor and your shoulders back – try not to hunch!
With your arms relaxed at your sides, measure above the bust at the armpits, keeping the tape parallel to the floor. Circle the tape around your back over your shoulder blades. Be sure to go all the way around your body.
Wearing your bra and with your arms relaxed at your sides, measure the fullest part of your bust, keeping the tape parallel to the floor, under the armpit and around your back at about the same location as the middle of your bra-line.
Measure all the way around your torso immediately beneath your bust.
Measure around the narrowest part of your torso at your natural waistline. To find your natural waistline, bend to one side. There will usually be a crease where you bend. Often it is just below your ribcage: that’s your natural waistline. (Don’t worry if this seems higher than where you actually wear your pants and jeans.) Keep the tape measure parallel to the floor as you measure all the way around your torso.
Standing with your heels together, measure around your body at the broadest part of your hips. This will include the fullest part of your backside, too and should be just about where your legs meets your torso (this is approximately 8″ below natural waistline).
Place the tape measure around the widest part of your upper arm, your bicep. Then bend your arm slightly at the elbow. This measurement ensures you’ll be able to bend your arms in the sleeves and fit your arms through the armholes of the item.
Standing with your feet slightly apart and your back to a wall, measure straight from the floor to the top of your head.
