There are up to five images for each item giving front, back and side views, as well as additional close-ups of the fabric or special details. Please be aware that colours may vary due to different screen resolutions and quality. Each garment also carries a short description as well as measurements of bust, waist, hips etc. If you have any further questions about a garment please email us.


2. How measurements are taken

An approximate UK size is also given but to be sure the item fits you perfectly, please refer to the individual measurements given for each garment. These measurements are taken externally, with the garment laid flat and in cm. Although we aim to be as accurate as possible, measurements are ultimately approximate. Please bear in mind that some garments might stretch more than others.

Bust: Measured on the front of the garment from underarm to underarm.

Waist: Measured at the waist from side seam to side seam.

Hips: Measured approximately 20cm below the waist and from side seam to side seam.

Arm Length: Measured from shoulder seam to end of sleeve.

Full Length: Measured from shoulder seam to hem.
