Body measurements

A sure way to find your perfect size is to take your own body measurements. You can easily compare your measurements with those of our products. You will find these in the ‘Size & Fit’ section or when you click on the ‘Item measurement chart’ for each item in our shop. Please note that we measure the products flat on a table and therefore specify the width. If you want to find out the circumference, simply double the listed numbers to compare them e.g. to your chest measurements.

Measure your favourite piece

Another recommendation of ours to find your perfect size is measuring your favourite piece. Just measure your favourite item and take for e.g. the chest width. Please note that we measure our items lying down. Once measured, you can compare the measurements with ours and look for items that are comparable to yours. In the description of every item in the shop you can find the exact dimensions under Size & Fit resp. under "Size chart". More information on how we measure, can be found here.

Familiar manufacturer size

We sell many well-known brands in our shop whose sizing systems might be familiar to you. When choosing the right size for each item in our shop, you can easily switch between the regular” sizes (12, 14/42, 44 etc.) and the manufacturer size (e.g. S, M, L). That way, you always get the right size which equals the manufacturer size you are already familiar with.

Ordering a selection of sizes

We want to especially encourage our new customers to purchase two or three different sizes in order to find your perfect size more easily. Our return process is easy and straightforward. For detailed information on returns, please click here.

How we measure

Ärmellänge

Bust
For your chest circumference, place the tape at the strongest point of your chest and measure around your body horizontally while wearing a good fitting bra. When taking your measurements you should not strecht out your arms. Leave them relaxed and let them lie naturally flat to your body, so you get the right result.

Waist
To determine your waist circumference, measure from the narrowest part of your waist. From there follow your natural waistline, which is between the highest points of your hipbones and thelower ribs.

Hips
For your hip circumference, measure the largest part of your hips including the buttocks.

Helpful Tips

When measuring, make sure you’re in a relaxed posture and are breathing normally. Do not suck your stomach in or stand extremely straight - stand as naturally as possible. Make sure that the measuring tape is completely straight (for example, the tape likes to slip down your back a bit when taking chest measurements). It is therefore recommended that you measure yourself in front of a mirror, so you can make corrections if necessary. Ideally, when taking measurements, wear the bra you intend to wear under the desired garment, so will the optimal fit is guaranteed.

Band Size

Measure your band size and use this chart to find out which size your bra should have.

Cup Size

If your newly discovered band size is smaller than your previous one, then you should probably choose a larger cup size. If your newly discovered band size is greater than the previous, then the opposite is the case and you should chose a smaller cup size.

Cross sizes (DE sizes)

The larger the cup letter, the bigger the cup? That is not necessarily true. The band size is always in proportion to the cup size. To demonstrate this, the table here shows the relation between cup size and band size. For example, the volume of the cups for the sizes 95F and 90G is identical and are shown in one line.
