How do I find the right size?

For clothes sizes is no worldwide norm und the manufacturers have differents terms.

Because of this you will find our article descriptions always the measurements according to the size.

 

We always measure our articles flatthat means that if you have for example a bust of 52 cm you need to duplicate this with 2 to have the bust measurement around.

 

We recommend to compare our measurements with an item you own and which fits you very well.
