One of the most frequently asked questions we are asked is: "Is your clothing standard sizing?"

The answer is no. Unfortunately there is no standard sizing for clothing as measurements are not uniformed across different brands and manufacturers. Sizing can also differ between styles of the same label.

We provide the actual garment measurements (unless noted) for each individual item in our store. We strongly recommend using these measurements to help determine your size. 

Taking Your Measurements

If possible, have someone else measure you to obtain the most accurate measurements.   

Bust - Measure around your back across the fullest part of your bust and keep your arms at your side with the tape straight, parallel to the floor. 

Natural Waist - Measure your natural waist line. This is your body's thinnest point just above your belly button and below your ribs. You can lean to the side to locate where your body naturally folds.

Hips - Measure the fullest part of your hips which is usually your body’s widest part around the bottom. Please keep your feet together to ensure an accurate measurement.
