Where to measure


As you can see... There is a great overlap in some of the numbers. This reflects the research done by RavenDreams on the conflicting identifications with what women report they wear and what their measurements are... Please read Why does nothing fit?

Size 6.5/UK 20-22 The two sizes are very similar, so if you fall between the two, select 6.5 at checkout.

Size 10/UK 34 This size is not currently available in the drop down when selecting items because no one has ever ordered one. If you do require a custom size, please contact me via the CONTACT page. I adore working on new patterns and would love the opportunity to expand my range of sizes!

How not to have pants that "roll down"
Measure your Top Hip [see image to right], if it is closer to the hip size of the size above or the size below your hip measurement you may need to choose the larger or smaller size. Feel free to Contact Us using the form on this page with your measurements and we will recommend the size best for you.

Babydolls, Camisoles and Nightgowns

Sizes for nightwear are gauged from your current bra size and range from: 36 - 46 back size / B - H cup size.
So when you order please specify bra size (ex: 40 GG)

Some high street stores offer a bra fitting service that is BEYOND SKIN TIGHT (ex: Bravissimo). In this case, as these items also function as very cosy sleepwear it is suggested that you go up one back size (ex: from a 36 F to a 38 F).

 To learn more about the correct fit and size of brasiers, please watch the following video and read this blog article "I can pretty much guarentee that you are wearing the wrong bra".
