Good news: it is possible for you to know how something will fit you, without having to try it on!
All of our garments are sized as either XS, S, M, L, or XL. These sizes indicate the general fit of a garment and are in line with standard South African sizes.
- XS: Size 6 - 8
- S: Size 8 - 10
- M: Size 10 - 12
- L: Size 12 - 14
- XL: Size 14 - 16
Exact measurements of all of our garments are taken seam to seam in centimetres while the garment is lying flat. The flat seam to seam measurement of the bust, waist, hip, thigh and ankle section of the garment is doubled to account for the fact that these parts of the garment fit around the body.
It is best to use a measuring tape and compare the provided seam to seam measurements to those of a similarly shaped garment in your possession. For example, if you're interested in a pair of trousers but aren't sure that they will fit you, you can measure out a pair of your own well-fitted trousers and then check the two sets of measurements against each other. When you measure your own trousers, do it from seam to seam (one side of the garment across to the other) in centimeters while the garment is lying flat, using our list of measurements to guide you. Remember to double the measurements that must fit around the body before comparing. For trousers it would be the waist, hip, thigh and ankle measurements. For a dress - the bust, waist, and hip.
Using a measuring tape and comparing the seam to seam measurements to your body measurements can also be done as a way of checking how the garment will fit where. For instance, if you measure yourself around the waist as 90cm, and a shirt on the site has a 96cm waist measurement, then you know that the shirt will fit you around the waist with 6cm of space left.
