HOW WE MEASURE

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.
