When selecting a size, ideally you should pick your usual dress size. We have then provided an additional 1.5 size capacity on the bust area. For example, if you are a UK dress size 14, the waist and hip measurements remain true to size, while the bust is the equivalent of a UK 17. The reason for choosing this sizing principle is that women with bigger busts go up one or two dress sizes to accommodate their boobs, so we have built this into the fit whilst retaining standard sizing proportions in other key areas of the body.

 

You can ensure the pieces will fit by referring to the body size chart on this page.

 

To measure your bust, wrap a tape measure around you, passing the fullest part of your bust. Ensure the tape measure stays at the same height the entire way round your torso.

 

To measure your waist, using the same principle, wrap the tape measure round the narrowest point on your torso. If this is not obvious, look for small creases in your skin towards the bottom of your ribcage and above your hips.

 

To measure your hips, again ensuring the tape measure remains at an even height, wrap it round your body, passing the largest point on your buttocks.
