Sizing:please consult the size chart in the listing photo above. Our size chart has letters instead of numbered sizes.
This is because you should not order your'regular' size; we really want to get the perfect fit on you, and that differs across different brands and styles. A quick measurement of your body will ensure a much better fit than simply ordering a size you assume will fit. If your measurements differ greatly from the size chart, we recommend getting a custom set using your specific measurements. If you want different sizes for your top and skirt, please just leave us a note in the'notes' box at checkout.Custom-made / measurements:a custom-made set will be made to your specified measurements. You should choose this option if you need a longer or shorter length, different proportions or different waistband width. If you want other customisations, you can add the different listings to your shopping cart to check out together. The add-ons can be found in the'services' category of our store. Any add-ons should be submitted a maximum of 12 hours after your order, though preferably at the same time. If you will be going without a bra, or opting for built in boning and bust cups, then please wear an unpadded lightly supportive bra only when taking your measurements. You will wrap the tape around your bust and around your back at the level of the widest part of your bust.
Waistfor most dresses and tops, this will be your natural waist (the narrowest point of your midriff). However, if you want a more empire waist style, you can specify exactly where you want the waistline of your dress to sit.
Please remember that all other measurements that reference'waist' will refer to this point- either the natural waist or whatever you have chosen. Simply wrap the tape around your body at this point- the natural waist or the waist level of your choosing. If you want a fitted style, make this a tight measurement, but ensure you can still move and breathe, or you may not be able to close your zipperhipsthis is not necessarily your hip bones, but the widest part of your lower body. This may be your lower abdomen, your hips, your butt or your thighs. Simply wrap the tape around the widest part of your lower body.
Shouldertake this from the back. From the upper outer tip of one shoulder, run the tape across the top of the back in a straight line, to the upper outer tip of the other shoulder. This measurement should not take in any of the arm.
Shoulder to bustfrom the level of the shoulder in the front, at about the mid clavicular line (directly above the nipple) run the tape straight down the bust to the level at which you took your bust measurement. Shoulder to waistfrom the level of the shoulder in the front, at about the mid clavicular line (directly above the nipple) run the tape straight down over the bust to the level at which you took your waist measurement.This should take in the full scope of the bust, to ensure we are allowing space in the area. Waist to hipsfrom the level at which you took your waist measurement, in a straight line down your front, to the level at which you took your hip measurement.
Length: from the waist level (taken above) let the tape hang down to where you want the dress to end. Remember to allow for it to go over your curves armscye: the'arm hole' - wrap the measuring tape around your shoulder and underarm, allowing room for comfortable range of motion. You can also take this measurement off a comfortable top you have. Remember that if it is too tight, it may pinch you or be uncomfortable, while too wide could mean gaping, or showing undergarments.
Bicep: wrap the tape around the widest part of your upper arm. Sleeve length: from the tip of the shoulder with a relaxed arm, measure down to where the sleeve will end. Sleeve opening: measure the circumference of the sleeve opening, whether at the wrist or elsewhere on your arm, allowing enough space for your hand to go through, and a comfortable range of motion.
Waistband width: you can specify the width you want for your waistband. Standard for this style is approx 2 width, proportional to your other measurements, though it can be narrower or wider if you wish. The waistband goes up from the waist level.
