Product Information

Sizing varies between our items, so we recommend using these tools to better determine your ideal size:

• The Product Measurements Table and Fit Guide can be found on every product page by selecting the Product Measurements tab. Measurements are provided in both centimetres and inches, while the garment is laying flat. Some measurements (i.e. waist, chest, etc.) have already been doubled, factoring in the full circumference. You can compare these measurements to similar pieces you already own.

• Additional style and fit details are included in the Details tab on each product page.

We offer sizes XXS - XL in select styles. As we continue to grow, we hope to become more size inclusive and offer more size and fit options.

If you’re unsure about the size and fit of a product you love, email us at for advice.

As we source our fabrics and produce each design in small quantities, designs may sell out quickly. We always try to restock our popular styles and re-invent our classics in new colours, shapes and fabrics, so keep a lookout for them.

Due to the nature of online shopping, items may occasionally be restocked after customer returns and exchanges are made, so please keep checking back on our website.

If an item that you like is out of stock, simply leave your email under the ‘Notify me when back in stock’ text on the respective product page or emailing us at We’ll let you know if the piece is due to become available again.

To keep your garments as fresh and pretty as the day they arrived, we recommend washing all pieces in cold water and hanging them dry. If you need a guide, just check out our garment care page.

We offer minor alteration services at a small cost. As the construction of every garment is different, we recommend dropping us an email at for more enquiries.
