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! Fear not! We are here to help and over the years have worked out the best way to help our customers select the right size.

All About Sizing
- Numerical sizes (8, 10, 12, 14 etc) are Australian sizes unless noted otherwise
- We don't have a 'generic' size chart and you will need to check the measurements on each item
- 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.
- When we receive a new garment, we measure each size by laying the garment flat and then doubling the result to obtain the total
- Sometimes we'll use the label's recommended body chart if the item is hard to measure (like stretch fabric, jackets or swimwear.). This will be noted above the chart
- All 'length' measurements are taken from the underarm seam unless noted
- Please refer to the 'Measurements' tab on each individual product page (see image below)
- Also look out for our tips on which measurement to pay most attention to and other measuring methods
- As a general rule, generic sizes convert to numeric sizes as follows. Please check the measurements to be sure though.
XS - 8
S - 10
M - 12
L - 14
XL - 16
2XL - 18
3XL - 20
4XL - 22

Step 1 - 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.
Step 2 - Compare to Our Measurements Table
The garment measurements are located on the 'Measurements' tab on each product page next to the 'Description' tab. We will usually also provide sizing tips based on the garment and fabric.
