MEASUREMENTS

 

Curious how we measure our clothes? Check out this video and the diagrams below to see exactly where we measure each piece!

We make various styles of tops, but we always take the measurements in the same spot on each style. The chest measurement is taken just underneath the arm hole, and length is taken from the shoulder to hem, rather than the center front of the neck hole. Our tops run true to size. 

Our Perfect Pants have a large amount of gathering in the waistband, and therefore have plenty of fabric to accommodate hips. The waistband measurement is taken unstretched, so we recommend comparing this measurement to your favorite pair of elastic pants to find out which size would be most comfortable for you. We make Perfect Pants in a wide array of fabrics, so the overall feel may differ due to fabric weight, content, and shrinkage. We encourage you to look at all measurements carefully (especially overall length) even if you have a pair of Perfect Pants that you like the fit of.

Our Swayers have a large amount of gathering in the waistband, and therefore have plenty of fabric to accommodate hips. The waistband measurement is taken unstretched, so we recommend comparing this measurement to your favorite pair of elastic pants to find out which size would be most comfortable for you. We make Swayers in a wide array of fabrics, so the overall feel may differ due to fabric weight, content, and shrinkage. We encourage you to look at all measurements carefully (especially overall length) even if you have a pair that you like the fit of. We have also received feedback that some customers have sized down when ordering heavier weight fabrics as the weight of the fabric can make the elastic work harder to stay up. 

Our Wrap Pants may be the hardest piece to determine size online due to the folding of the waistband. The waist measurement is taken with the pants laid flat, not folded at all. So if you subtract your waist measurement from the pant waist measurement, that will tell you how many inches of fabric would be left to fold over! We make Wrap Pants in a wide array of fabrics, so the overall feel may differ due to fabric weight, content, and shrinkage. We encourage you to look at all measurements carefully (especially overall length) even if you have a pair that you like the fit of.

We make various styles of dresses, but we always take the measurements in the same spot on each style. The chest measurement is taken just underneath the arm hole, and length is taken from the shoulder to hem, rather than the center front of the neck hole. Our dresses run true to size.

Our overalls are measured at the widest point (right under the armhole opening) to determine chest measurement. This measurement carries down to the hip. The rise measurement is taken from the lowest point of the neck opening down to the crotch.

Our Tank Bras are rather stretchy, and we have heard that many customers can comfortably cross between sizes. It just depends on if you prefer undergarments to be looser or more snug. They are reversible, so you can choose if you would like to wear the lower or higher neckline in front. The chest measurement is taken at the widest part, just underneath the arm hole.

Our britches are rather stretchy, and we have heard that many customers can comfortably cross between sizes. It just depends on if you prefer undergarments to be looser or more snug. We recommend measuring your favorite high waisted pair of underwear or bathing suit bottoms to determine the closest match in size. 

Our robes are generously sized, and the best fit would most likely be the same as your dress size. The chest measurement is taken with the robe laid flat, not including the parts on the front that overlap to wrap around the body.
