Sizing Up


- So please check your measurements against our charts, to ensure a perfect fit.

- If you find yourself inbetween or outside of a category, we offer a made to measure service, which is to have a garment made to your exact measurements. 

- Made to measure service costs £16.50 on top of your garment price.

- The age is just a guide please don't take it literally.

- If you have any trouble with sizing please give us a call and we can guide you.


Getting Your Measurements



Measure over the fullest part of your chest with your arms relaxed at your sides.


Measure around where your waist naturally indents. Keep your finger between the tape and your belly.


Measure around the fullest part of the hips and bottom while standing with your heels together.


The girth measurement ensures we get an accurate body length. So measure from the top of one shoulder, down the back, through the legs, back up passed the tummy and chest to the original shoulder

Inside leg

Measure from the crotch to the floor, or your desired trouser length.


Please use Size Chart One for all leotards, skirts, dresses and trousers
