find Your best fit

Start with your measurements

Take your measurements using a cloth measuring tape while wearing your underwear or a slip only. Make sure the tape measure is parallel to the ground and moderately tight - it's easy to check this in the mirror while you measure.

  • Bust: To achieve a more accurate fit measurement we recommend measuring while wearing the bra you intend to wear with the garment. Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust.
  • Waist: Measure around where you would most comfortably wear a pull-on skirt or pants.
  • Hips: Measure at the widest point of your hips.

Using Size Charts

To account for different sizing systems, we assign a size chart to each style which you'll find on each style page. You can use the chart to compare a style to your body measurements or with common size systems.

  • For example, in the size chart shown here, a size 2XL in that style should fit if you normally wear a size 20 or 22 (Australia/NZ sizing).  If you're using body measurements, it should suit a bust measure between 120 cm to 127 cm.

How we take garment measurments

Our main measurements that we take for each garment are the Bust, Waist and Hip measurement. From these we make custom size charts to fit each style.

The front, back, sleeve, leg and stretched waist lengths are provided for each style where required. They are intended as a guide only, as lengths are graded slightly for each size.

Fabric Ease

The space between your body measurements and the final garment measurements is called Fabric Ease. This space allows you to move, sit and breathe comfortably.

When choosing how much Fabric Ease to allow you'll need to think about how the style is intended to be worn, the fabric it's made from and more importantly how you want to wear the style. Use our suggestions below to help you.

  • Example: If your Bust measurement is 100cm and you want to wear a style as a relaxed fit then add 15-20cm, so look for a garment bust measurement of 115-120cm. However, if you intend to wear the style oversized add 25cm or more, so look for a garment Bust measurement of 125cm .

Tips for the best Fit

How to compare your body measurements against garment measurements

Close Fit Styles

Under pieces, swimwear, shapewear & body contouring styles.
  • Close Fit styles are normally constructed with stretch fabrics and are designed to be worn hugging the body.
  • We generally don't measure these styles and recommend using the styles size chart as your fit guide.
Use the Styles Size Chart

Shaped & Structured Styles

Our shaped and structured styles will normally have more shape around the shoulders and bust.

  • When selecting Fabric Ease for structured styles we mostly focus on the Bust measurement.
  • Think about the fabric: Delicates such as silk, chiffon need a bit of extra room. While stretch fabrics are a bit more forgiving.
  • Garments designed to be a Structured Style can be more difficult to wear as a Relaxed or Oversized fit. The point to consider here depends on how the shoulders are constructed and whether they will drape nicely in a more relaxed size.
5-10cm Fabric Ease

Relaxed Styles

A relaxed, or loose, fit style doesn't mould to the contours of the wearer's body like a structured style does.
  • When selecting Fabric Ease for Relaxed Styles we mostly focus on the Bust measurement.
  • Garments designed to be a Relaxed Style are fairly easy to wear Oversized with the extra Fabric Ease and some can be worn as a more Structured Fit with less ease.
10-20cm Fabric Ease

Oversized Styles

The term Oversized is used for the most generous possible fit, one that doesn't have any body definition at all.
  • When selecting Fabric Ease for oversized styles we mostly focus on the Bust measurement
  • Garments designed to be worn Oversized are fairly easy to wear as a Relaxed Fit by decreasing the Fabric Ease.
25cm or more Fabric Ease

Stretch-waisted Styles

Lower body garments like trousers and skirts with a Stretch Waist.
  • When selecting Fabric Ease for Stretch-Waisted styles we focus on the Waist measurement.
  • We measure these styles unstretched and stretched. So the Waist measurement of the style should be similar or lower than your body measurement.
No ease or negative ease

Outerwear Styles

Coats, jackets and cardigans.
  • When selecting Fabric Ease for Oterwear Styles we generally focus on the Bust measurement and fit around the shoulders.
  • The Fabric Ease required depends on what garments you intend to layer underneath.

Use your own garments for measurements

If you already have a garment that fits you well, you can simply use that to compare with our garment measurements.

A few tips to help when measuring your existing garments:

  • Use garments with a similar fabric type and the fit that you are looking for.
  • Lay the garment on a flat surface and follow our Garment Measuring Guide above.
  • Remember to double your measurement to account for both front and back.
