Size Chart and measurement guide

All measurements are in inches.
If your top & bottom are different sizes, please mention it in your details.

How to measure shoulders:

These measurements are very helpful for me to have-

1. Bust: Measure around the fullest part of your bust while breathing in - keep the tape relaxed.

2. Under bust: Measure around your under bust (this is where your bra strap sits) while breathing in.

3. Waist: Measure around the narrowest part of your waist (natural waist) while breathing in.

4. Shoulder to waist: measure in a straight line from the middle of your shoulder to the narrowest part of your waist. Measure from where your shoulders are flat - not close to your neck as they are higher there.

5. Shoulder width (or "back width") : This is optional because it is tricky, but PLEASE let me know if anyone in your group is broad shouldered. If store bought clothing in your size is snug on the shoulders, it generally means you have broader shoulders.

Here is a great video on how to measure shoulders

Measure from the edge of one shoulder (where it *just* starts to slope) to the edge of the other should across your back. Please do NOT include any part of your arms in this measurement - this is a straight line across the back from edge-to-edge. Start & end where the shoulder just starts to slope.

6. Back length (optional): Measure from the nape of your neck (the bony bit) to your natural waist in a straight line. 

7. Hip: measure all around the fullest part of your seat (bum).
