Additional policies

Unless otherwise stated, all measurements are in inches and are taken on the outside of a garment. Each piece is laid flat before measuring. Bust, waist, and hip areas, etc. are measured across and then the measurement is doubled. We measure each garment at least twice to ensure accuracy. If your waist is 28" and the garment waist is 28", it will not fit if it is a fitted garment - an allowance of 1" to 2" is always best, even more on thicker and heavier items such as outerwear.

Unless otherwise stated, the toe to heel measurement is taken with the measuring tape laid flat against the surface of the inside of the shoe, and up and over the arch (if any). For the width of ball, we take the widest part of the outside bottom of the shoe. For width of heel, we measure inside the shoe, across the widest point.

We measure everything twice.

Take something from your wardrobe that fits you well, measure it in the same fashion we do and compare your measurements to ours.
