XS = 30

M = 34
L = 36
XL = 38

More Sizing Help : 
These are the recommended BODY measurements for most our garments. Please compare your own and choose your size accordingly. 

How to measure: Measure your waist about where your rib cage ends. Your SMALLEST part. Usually about 2 fingers min. higher than your Belly Button.
Bust: over your boobs at the fullest part
Hips: Not your bum. Not your love handles. About 2 fingers under your belly button. Find the fullest part.

Small: Bust 85-89 cm; Waist 68-73cm; Hips 94-98cm
Medium: Bust 90-94cm; Waist 74-78 cm; Hips 99-104 cm
Large: Bust 95-100cm; Waist 79- 83cm; Hips 105- 109cm
X-Large: Bust 100-106cm; Waist 84-88cm; Hips 110-114cm
XX-Large: Bust 107-112cm; Waist 89-93cm; Hips 115-120cm

Fun Fact: The size differences between items (usually) is minimal:
So sizing up in a loose fitting dress or a dress with elastic, especially, if your size is sold out, shouldn't be an issue. We can also make dresses a size smaller upon request. 

Good to know:
We generally try our best to add anything specific in the description of the item, if you should know something. We may say, she tends to fit small. Or, If you are between sizes, size up. 
Or she fits loose, etc. 
These statements are there to guide you and if you are uncertain, we'd love to help you! 

DISCLAIMER: This is a guide only, not a guarantee. if you want specific garment measurements, please contact us. We do our best to help, and tried putting together a guide, but all fabric and styles fit slightly different. Some are more forgiving, more stretchy etc than others. So please bear that in mind and reach out to clarify if you need help.
