How to measure yourself

A good general rule when finding your measurements is to place a finger between the body and the tape measure – this ensures that the clothes will be comfortable without feeling tight.

A: Bust
To find your bust measurement, you should measure at the fullest point. Measure closely without tightening.

B: Waist
To find your waist measurement, place the tape measure at the narrowest point of your waist. Measure closely without tightening.

C: Hips
To find your hip measurement, place the tape measure at the widest point of your hips. Make sure you keep the tape measure close to you, without tightening it.

Tops - terminology we use

FITTED our most figure-hugging shape and is a good choice for women who want to emphasise their figure slightly. This shape is good if you have a waist and smaller bust.

A-SHAPE is a good choice if you like your clothes to fit more loosely at the bottom. The A-shape emphasises the bust and falls loosely and beautifully over the body.

BIAS is one of our most popular shapes as it suits most body types. It is characterised by the fact that the fabric is cut on the diagonal and therefore wraps itself beautifully and elegantly around the body with the same flexibility as a stretch fabric.This shape is ideal for women of all shapes and sizes who like a feminine silhouette.

SHAPED is a more roomy fitted shape, perfect if you have a larger bust and curves. It is wide across the chest, but tapers in slightly at the waist.

OVERSIZE is a shape that offers plenty of volume and freedom to move. It is a roomy shape and suits all kinds of body types as it falls loosely over the body.

STRAIGHT is a classic straight lined silhouette offering pleasant comfort. It’s a shape for women who like a casual, relaxed style without wanting to emphasise any particular figure.
