Sizing Guide

 

 Measurements

It's important that you choose a size that will fit your measurements because I want you to feel amazing in my garments.

If you have any questions about your measurements, or anything else please get in touch! I would love to help.

Bespoke

 

When placing an order with me, I will either have an in person fitting in which I will measure you, or if you are unable to come to the studio, I will instead send a full measurement sheet and instructions with what I would need for your order.

Made to Order & Samples

Before purchasing any made to order or sample garments from me, I highly recommend checking your measurements against my size charts. 

 

 

 

 

 How to measure yourself

 

You will need a dressmaker’s tape measure and either a friend to help you, or a full sized mirror. The best way to get the most accurate measurements is to have someone helping you as they can make sure the measuring tape stays level, but if that’s not possible, a full length mirror can work instead, just remember to triple check your measurements to make sure they are correct.

 

Things to keep in mind:

  • If you plan on wearing specific underwear/shape-wear/clothes underneath the garment, then wear the same items when measuring yourself.

  • Horizontal measurements - Keep the measuring tape parallel to the floor all the way around the body, don't let it sag or dip.

  • Vertical measurements - let gravity help when needed.

  • Don’t hold your breath or suck in your stomach, just relax and stand naturally.

  • The measuring tape should feel snug around you, but not uncomfortable so.

  • Take measurements in centimetres or inches and round up or down to the nearest amount

  • Compare your measurements to the size charts below.

Corset sizes

The below horizontal measurements are needed to determine your corset size.

Additionally vertical measurements can also be helpful to double check the fit as everyones body is different, even if they appear to be the same size. To help get accurate vertical measurements, we advise wrapping a piece of ribbon or string around your waist.  This acts like a guide so that you are always measuring up and down from the same line.

We normally recommend a corset 4-6 inches smaller than your natural waist size, but this reduction amount can change depending on your personal squish factor. Our corset sizes are determined by this corseted waist measurement and does not include a lacing gap.

Bra sizes

 

Our lingerie is very adjustable with several straps to help get a good unique fit.

This is a great starting point to see what size you are, however your personal preferences and unique

shape can affect the size you need.

To find your bra size, you will need two measurements, the under bust measurement; which determines your band size and your bust measurements; which indicates the cup size.

 

 

BUST

UNDERBUST

 Underbust Measurement

The under bust measurement should be taken under your breasts and wrap around your torso.  The tape should feel snug, but not uncomfortable. Note down this measurement, as we will use it in the chart below to determine your band size.

 

Bust Measurement

The bust measurements should be taken around the fullest part of your breasts (usually across the nipples). We recommend taking this measurement over your best fitting bra as this would give us a better idea of the fit you like. Again, make sure that the tape measure is level all the way around and don't hold it too tight. Note down this number as well and refer to the chart below.
