Fit is one of the most crucial points for customer satisfaction when purchasing online. As marked sizes differ from brand to brand, actual measurements can be the most accurate. Please scroll down to view an international size conversion chart and instructions on how to measure. This chart is only a guideline as sizing can vary from brand to brand. We try our best to assess fit and provide accurate measurements but if you have any additional questions about a specific item please contact us.
HOW WE MEASURE
Here is a graphic on how we measure the most important areas to ensure a more accurate fit. All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat and buttons done up. Please select a similar garment from your own wardrobe with similar fit and compare measurements. Please note our measurements are of the actual garment and not body measurements. However we often add notes about recommended body measurements to help determine fit so have also provided instructions on how to measure for body measurements.
