Our dresses and skirts don’t come in standard sizing and aren’t the same across the store.

To avoid disappointment, please be careful when choosing your dress size and use the size guide provided on the actual page of the dress you would like to buy. Use a tape measure and take up to date measurements in your underwear of your bust, waist and hips in a relaxed pose while standing up – without straining or wearing any other outer garments.

Don’t assume that your usual size will be the same fit for our dresses, please check the individual size chart for the dress you are interested in.

Each manufacturer has slightly different sizing for their dresses and often even for different collections within their range.

If you are buying more than one dress, please double check your measurements against the size charts listed for each of the dresses you would like to buy because they do differ.

If your measurements fall in between two sizes, please err on the side of caution and choose the larger size. Dresses can always be shrunk by washing in warm water but making them fit if they are too small is much more trickier.

As a rule, many of our dresses tend to be a little smaller around the bust so please pay particular attention to this area and choose a size which will fit you comfortably around the chest.

And of course, as always, if you are unsure about anything, just contact us before ordering at [email protected] and we will be more than happy to help or clarify anything for you.
