HOW WE MEASURE

TOPS, DRESSES, COATS AND JACKETS

To measure the bust size of a top we lay the item flat, measure from underarm to underarm and then double that measurement, so it gives us the size around the body.

​To measure the length of a top we lay the item flat measure the centre back from under the collar to the hemline. If the item has an asymmetrical hemline we will detail the shortest and the longest length. We measure the centre back of all shirts, vests, dresses, jackets, coats etc to determine length.

TROUSERS AND SKIRTS

We measure both trouser size and skirt size in three places. For trousers we measure waist, inside leg length and total length. And for skirts - waist, hips and total length.

​The waistband range measurement is taken when the waistband is relaxed then doubled which provides us with the smallest size and then extended and doubled which gives us the largest.

​The inside leg measurement is taken from the trouser hem to the crotch on the inside leg. The total length of the trouser and skirt is measured from the top of the waistband to the hem. The skirt hip size is measure 15-20cms below the waist and then doubled.
