Our size charts are YOUR measurements, NOT the finished garment measurements. Our clothing is designed for a loose, relaxed fit. The bust and hip areas have generous ease built in, and the waist is semi-fitted to shape the clothing without tightly defining the form. We include fabric belts/sashes for more waist definition if desired.
Using the chart below, find the size that corresponds to the widest part of your body. The clothing will be slightly larger than the measurement chosen.
For example: if your bust size is 40, and your waist and hips are smaller, choose size 12 for a snug fit through the bust or size 14 for a little extra ease.
If your waist is the largest part of your body, you will have extra ease in the bust area and extra flare in the skirt. If your hips are largest, you will have more ease in the bust and waist. With kimono-styled garments this is generally not an issue.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for sizing assistance. We are happy to advise!
