How to Measure

The measurements for each item are recorded and can be found in the items description. The safest way to obtain your measurements is to measure some of the items in your closet that you feel fit you the best. Please note that some items stretch differently then others. Most knitted garments have some stretch in them while most woven garments do not. If we come across items that do not stretch we will make a note of it in the items description. It is important for you to take that into account when you are measuring items in your closet. 

Please remember that we do not grant returns to items that do not fit. So place close attention when measuring and comparing them to the measurements that we have listed.

Make sure that you double the waist, bust and hip measurements in order to obtain the true measurements. All items are measured on the front side of the garment when the garments is lied down flat. Try not to stretch the garment when measuring because this will give you an inaccurate measurement.

Also note that some items are meant to fit differently. For example some items are meant to be oversized.

How We Measure

-Bust: Underarm to underarm, for dolmen or batwing styles we measure from where the underarm seam would be if extended.
-Waist: The smallest part of the garment where the natural waist is.
-Shoulders: From shoulder seam to seam
-Hip: Largest part of garment, Several inches below waist
-Sleeves: From shoulder seam to bottom of cuff or hem, for dolmen and batwing styles we measure from where the shoulder seam             should be. The starting point is taken where the underarm point is taken straight up and the measured to the bottom of cuff or hem.
-Length: Taken from high point shoulder or top of straps in some cases.
-Inseam: From crotch seam to inner bottom hem.
-Outseam: From bottom of waist band to bottom hem.
-Rise: Top of garment or waist band to crotch seam.
